Daniel Craig vs. The Kardashians: It’s War

Daniel Craig

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.

And he clearly has no time for anyone in the public eye who is willing to sell out their own family and living room to make a few bucks. Especially if they’ve already got a few bucks. Yes, Kim Kardashian, he means you.

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.
