Daniel Craig: James Bond is a ‘sad old man’

Screen Shot 2015-09-01 at 10.21.27


James Bond is a bit of  wally, says Daniel Craig, the latest actor to make the character from Ian Felming’s books flesh and blood.

Craig has been talking to Esquire 007 in readiness for Spectre, the latest Bond outing:

“Austin Powers fucked it. By the time we did Casino Royale, [Mike Myers] had blown every joke apart. We were in a situation where you couldn’t send things up. It had gone so far post-modern it wasn’t funny any more.

The new Bond has “truth“, says Craig.

“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…

 “[For a while] I did feel like, ‘I’ve got to look like I’m doing other stuff.’ But then it was, ‘Who for?’ So the public think, ‘Ooh, isn’t he versatile?’ [On Spectre] it was like, ‘I’m James Bond, for f***’s sake.’ It’s not a bad position to be in. I used to get asked all the time, ‘Don’t you worry that you’re going to get typecast?’ ‘And?’ I mean, talk about a high-class problem.”

Kim Kardashian is so low that even Jason Statham feels like he can slag her off

SINCE Kim Kardashian’s marriage to Kris Humphries died like a mayfly, everyone has had it in for her. In fairness, everyone has always thought she was a vapid nincompoop, but not, fellow celebrities feel safe enough to sling handfuls of faeces her way.

Mad Men’s Jon Hamm and Daniel Craig have both called her names, and now, remarkably, professional cockerney hardman Jason Statham is the latest to have a pop at the celebutante.

Jason Statham has labelled her nothing more than a ‘brand,’ reports the Mail. When asked if he thought of himself as a brand, he told Details magazine: “F*** no. Why should I?” Confronted with the idea that “people see a guaranteed $30million a film as a brand in need of management,” he replied “F***’ ’em. Kim Kardashian’s a brand.”

India bans The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo – Daniel Craig’s Enya dies horribly

THE anal rape scene in the Hollywood remake of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo means the film will not be screened in India. You’d suppose all those frescos and carvings of sex and buggery would make the Indians au fait with sodomy. It wasn’t just the rape India’s Central Board of Film Certification wanted  chopped and changed , it was all the sex scenes, of which there at least three. Director David Fincher was noncompliant and refused to make the changes.

Sony Pictures India says:

The Censor Board has adjudged the film unsuitable for public viewing in its unaltered form and, while we are committed to maintaining and protecting the vision of the director, we will, as always, respect the guidelines set by the Board.

Daniel Craig And Rachel Weisz’s Real Life Dream House Romance: Photos

ARE Daniel Craig and actress Rachel Weisz at it? The NoTW says the actors are embroiled in “secret romance”. So secret is it that the stars of the big screen are in Dorset (sources suggest The Pavilion in Milborne Wick).

where they have “strolled to a country pub where they snuggled together in front of the fire for a Christmas Eve drink”.

Even more secretively, you might have read bout it on December 1?

And get this:

Warmly wrapped in thick coats, scarves and wellies – and with their faces almost hidden under sunglasses and woolly hats – they held hands and occasionally clung on to each other as they gingerly manoeuvred their way down icy lanes.
