"In lovemaking, Bond's PG requirements have traditionally meant you can only show post-coital sex," he told the magazine.
"You know, clothes strewn around the room, the camera slowly pans over to the bed....But we thought, why couldn't Bond have the best lay of his life? So we shot a very hot love scene. Whether it survives the censor's cut, or the producer's, we'll see."
This time, Bond's adversary, a North Korean named Zao (played by Rick Yune), uses a device that can dramatically alter a person's features to further his diabolical plans.
The film opens in the United States Nov. 22.
