Daniel Craig, who’s been playing James Bond for a decade now, says the world’s most-famous spy is misogynistic, sexist, sad and very lonely.
He said: “Hopefully my Bond is not as sexist and misogynistic as (earlier incarnations). The world has changed.
“I am certainly not that person. But he is … There’s a great sadness. He’s got these beautiful women but then they leave. 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…”
The 47-year-old actor – who is about to return to the big screen for the new Bond movie “Spectre“, was talking to Esquire magazine.
Craig admits Bond might get all the women, but he is a loner with no real friends and lasting relationship.
When asked if he’s staying with the James Bond franchise, he told Esquire magazine: “At this moment, no. I have a life and I’ve got to get on with it a bit. But we’ll see.
“You know, it sounds awful but I’ve been left a wealthy man by doing this. I can afford to live very comfortably… I’m incredibly fortunate. But the day I can walk into a pub and someone goes, ‘Oh, there’s Daniel Craig’ and then just leaves me alone, that’ll be great.”
