Vladimir Putin Says He Doesn't Get Bad Days Because "I'm Not A Woman"

He was speaking to Oscar-winning film director Oliver Stone

Vladimir Putin has said he never has bad days because "I'm not a woman".

He was speaking to Oscar-winning film director Oliver Stone, who had been granted access to the perma-topless Russian president between July 2015 and February 2017.

Bloomberg reports that Putin told Stone: "I'm not a woman, so I don't have bad days. I am not trying to insult anyone, that's just the nature of things – there are certain natural cycles."

The four-part documentary, 'The Putin Interviews', is airing from 12-15 June. It comes after a period of unprecedented media-presence for the elusive leader.

When NBC presenter Megyn Kelly blagged a rare interview with the perma-topless president last week, attention was understandably geared towards the Kremlin's alleged role in Donald Trump's controversial election win.

Putin stated that he "doesn't care" who the US president is, because "presidents come and go, and even the political party in power changes – but the main political direction does not change".

"That's why, in the grand scheme of things, we don't care who the president of the United States is, because we know more or less what is going to happen," he said.
