James Bond's Q says coming out takes courage
James Bond star Ben Whishaw has said it "takes courage" for gay people to come out.
The actor - who played Q in the most recent 007 movie Skyfall - said it is "hard" for people to come out to their mother, adding: "I applaud everyone who does it."
Ben told The Sunday Times Magazine that there is "so much tension around doing something like that."
