People are allowed to change their minds, even celebrities. It’s just a little harder when you’re in the public eye.
When the 2015 film Spectre wrapped, James Bond star Daniel Craig did an interview with Time Out. According to Craig it was literally the day after filming, he had been away from home for a year, and, putting it lightly, he was a little crabby (that last bit is our non-expert diagnosis).
We don’t need to rehash what went down last year, because you probably remember the harsh words the actor used when talking about continuing on as 007. Even Craig realizes the impact of his now infamous comments, saying, “They say s–t sticks and that definitely stuck.” Oof, he’s not making our job easy here in proving he’s had a change of heart with his still not-so-polite choice of words above.
Even so, it seem he’s taken a chill pill. He may have needed a small break, a chance to step away from the franchise, which he’s done, working on the heist film Logan Lucky with director Steven Soderbergh.
Craig attended the New Yorker Festival this past weekend (October 7-9) and fielded a question about his future as Bond. He responded, in addition to the above reflection, saying, “As far as I’m concerned, I’ve got the best job in the world. I’ll keep doing it as long as I still get a kick out of it. If I were to stop doing it, I would miss it terribly.”
Aw, that’s more like it.
A lot of people are so worked up over who will be the next Bond (forgetting it could be Craig), with talks of Idris Elba or Tom Hiddleston taking over the license to kill. But that may be a non-issue now.
