One of the reasons Daniel Craig is such an imposing figure as an actor is the very real seriousness he brings to his everyday encounters with people. Well, I say people, when I really mean journalists. And I say seriousness, when I mean anger.

As part of an impassioned rant against the invasion of his privacy by the press, Craig told GQ:”Look at the Kardashians, they are worth millions. Millions! I don’t think they were that badly off to begin with but now look at them.”
He’s clearly not a Meet The Kardashians fan either: “You see that and you think, ‘What, you mean all I have to do is behave like a f**king idiot on television and then you’ll pay me millions?’”
Well it worked for the Osbournes.
And then the payoff: “I’m not judging it. Well, I am, obviously.”
Quite harshly too, if I’m honest.
