James Bond and I Are Different - Daniel Craig
The current James Bond, Daniel Craig, says he's not about that life. Speaking to Esquire UK the Daniel Craig clearly states he’s not the same as the James Bond in real life though that’s what most of us fans assume
“Hopefully my Bond is not as sexist and misogynistic as [earlier incarnations]. The world has changed. I am certainly not that person,” Craig said. “But he is, and so what does that mean? It means you cast great actresses and make the parts as good as you can for the women in the movies.
Not only that, but the actor had some surprising insights from inside the head of his character, including the truth that Bond is, in some ways, a pretty pathetic figure.
He’s very fucking lonely. There’s a great sadness. He’s fucking these beautiful women but then they leave and it’s… sad. And as a man gets older it’s not a good look. It might be a nice fantasy – that’s debatable – but the reality, after a couple of months…”
I don’t know if I’d like to spend too much time with him (007). Maybe an evening but it would have to be early doors. What goes on after hours, I’m not so sure about. But I don’t judge him. It’s not the job of an actor to judge your character.”
