Daniel Craig On The Downside Of Being James Bond
The new James Bond film “Skyfall” already shattered Bond opening weekend records, taking in over 87 million bucks its first weekend out. This is Daniel Craig’s third Bond film and you’d think by now he’d be use to the demands and perks of being the world’s most famous fictional spy. However, he’s not.
Craig tells US Weekly he had to do a lot of running for “Skyfall’ and wasn’t happy about that because he hates running. Bond films are known for lots of high intensity action scenes. How about those movies action scenes? He admits he’s not a fighter so he has to pretend to be one for the role. He says it’s called “bull**** boxing.”
Despite his other roles, Craig is probably most famous for playing Bond and with such fame comes a price. Craig tells US Weekly he misses being out of the public eye: “You can’t live a normal life…because it will become public knowledge that you’ve gotten drunk in a bar or skinny-dipped on a beach. You have to think in that way. Which is sad, because I like bars.”
Sounds a bit gloomy, doesn’t he? I do think he’s really cool as Bond. Do you?
