Cover Boy: Daniel Craig for Esquire
Bite-sized sex morsel Daniel Craig gets the (admittedly, pretty cool-looking) cover treatment at Esquire because he’s got those Cowboys & Aliens and Girl With The Dragon Tattoo flicks to flog.
Daniel Craig covers the August 2011 issue of Esquire magazine photographed by Nigel Parry.
It’s the usual actor sound bites, with bravado and liberal sprinking of the f-notes throughout to compensate for the fact that he wears makeup every working day of his life:
On The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo: “It’s as adult as you can possibly make it. This is adult drama. I grew up, as we f*cking all did, watching The Godfather and that, movies that were made for adults. And this is a $100 million R-rated movie. Nobody makes those anymore. And Fincher, he’s not holding back. They’ve given him free rein. He showed me some scenes recently, and my hand was over my mouth, going, Are you f*cking serious?”
On constantly being associated with James Bond: “This has become my way, it’s as simple as that. I mean, since I’ve just become James Bond. And I think, you know, that means being something that people feel they own. And all of the sudden I’m getting magazine covers, when I got nothing for ten years before that. I say it’s just pure luck. And doing covers, people interviewing me, and they want to know everything and I’m going, I’m not gonna f—ing tell you!”
That’s all well and good, dear; and if you want to continue ranting, be our guest, but can we sit on the floor next to you, cradling our scotch and carefully cuffing and recuffing our jeans? Just for a little while?
