With his fourth James Bond film — and the end of his contract — quickly approaching, “Spectre” star Daniel Craig isn’t sure whether he’ll suit up again as 007.
“I don’t know,” the actor confesses to Esquire U.K. “I really don’t know. Honestly. I’m not trying to be coy. At the moment I can’t even conceive it.” Asked whether he’d like to star in another Bond film, he replied, “At this moment, no. I have a life and I’ve got to get on with it a bit. But we’ll see.”
Characterizing Bond as “very fucking lonely,” Craig said,“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 …”
However, he also views his version of 007 as different from those that came before him. “Hopefully, my Bond is not as sexist and misogynistic as [earlier incarnations],” he told the magazine. “The world has changed. I am certainly not that person. 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.”
Opening Nov. 6, “Spectre” also stars Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Rory Kinnear, Christoph Waltz, Monica Bellucci, David Bautista, Léa Seydoux and Andrew Scott.
