Actor Roger Moore says his former wives Doorn Van Steyn and Dorothy Squires were physically abusive towards him. He faced several assaults by them, included being hit with a teapot and a guitar.

Moore, who played James Bond from 1973 to 1985, has been married four times.

"(Doorn) would scratch me. She threw a pot of tea at me. I'd been sunbathing in the garden, I came up and I'd taken off my pants and I gave her some smart Alec answer and this teapot came hurtling at me. I said, 'Right, that's it, I'm leaving'," femalefirst.co.uk quoted the 84-year-old as saying.

Speaking about his second wife Squires, he added: "There was a confrontation. I remember, to avoid confrontation, I used to strum the guitar and one day I was sitting on the edge of the table strumming and she was ranting on about something and I wasn't taking any notice.

"Next thing I know, it was like slow motion, I could feel the guitar coming out of my hands and I could see it up above my head and... bash, it came down. She ruined the guitar. She had a great temper."

After separating from third wife Luisa Mattioli, Moore is now happily married to socialite 71-year-old Kristina Tholstrup.
