Daniel Craig Says James Bond is “Sexist And Misogynistic”

British actor Daniel Craig, who is currently playing the legendary James Bond and is set to appear in the latest instalment ‘Spectre’, believes the iconic spy character has been quite “sexist and misogynistic” in the past, but he hopes his version of Bond is no longer like this and more modern as a man. He also thinks Bond’s life can be quite sad generally because he never has love:

”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…”

Daniel adds that if he knew Bond in real life, he isn’t sure if they would even be friends and he’s not too keen on the idea of spending time with him:

”I don’t know if I’d like to spend too much time with him. Maybe an evening but it would have to be early doors. What goes on after hours I’m not so sure about.”

The actor reveals that he does plan to move on from the role and would prefer if his fame would die down:

”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.”
