Promoting his latest movie, 'Cowboys and Aliens', James Bond himself covers the August issue of Esquire magazine. Interview by Tom Chiarella, Daniel Craig drops a number of f-bombs and gives his thoughts on the economy, but don't ask him about his daughter.
On making 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' : "It's as adult as you can possibly make it. This is adult drama. I grew up, as we f***ing all did, watching The Godfather and that, movies that were made for adults. And this is a $100 million R-rated movie. Nobody makes those anymore. And Fincher, he's not holding back. They've given him free rein. He showed me some scenes recently, and my hand was over my mouth, going, Are you f***ing serious?"
He likes to talk about politics, he's for the people, man! : "Not everybody's happy with their situation!" And here Daniel Craig pounds the table in front of him. There is rattling of glass. "There are some f***ing seriously poor people, who are mixing with your diminishing middle class, and there's a sort of ever-growing f***ing ruling class, and it's like, it's obvious."
Don't worry, there will be another Bond movie : "No-no-no, Sam's gonna do it, Sam Mendes, and I'm really f***ing really lookin' forward to the fact that he's gonna do it," he says, snapping to.
And maybe magazines should stop asking him stuff : "This has become my way, it's as simple as that," he says. "I mean, since I've just become James Bond. And I think, you know, that means being something that people feel they own. And all of the sudden I'm getting magazine covers, when I got nothing for ten years before that. I say it's just pure luck. And doing covers, people interviewing me, and they want to know everything and I'm going, I'm not gonna f***ing tell you!"
This wasn't so much an interview as it was Chiarella sitting back letting Daniel Craig be cool and curse a lot, but it was a f***ing interesting read.
