Daniel Craig covers British GQ January 2012. For his interview, he’s exactly as surly and curmudgeonly as he is in every interview. He’s always cussing out someone. He’s always bemoaning something. That said, interviewers are always quick to point out he’s interesting, intelligent and considered in his responses. He just hates everything. But he’s not quick tempered with his replies.
For this interview, he explains why the world’s going to heck in a handbasket and reality shows are to blame. He also sneaks in a “Neener, neener, neener,” about his secret relationship and wedding to wife Rachel Weisz.
On the Kardashians: “Look at the Kardashians, they’re worth millions. I don’t think they were that badly off to begin with but now look at them. You see that and you think ‘What, you mean all I have to do is behave like a f**kng idiot on television and then you’ll pay me millions. I’m not judging it. Well… I am obviously.”
On the hypocrisy that follows such overexposure: “I think there’s a lot to be said for keeping your own counsel. It’s not about being afraid to be public with your emotions or about who you are and what you stand for. But if you sell it off it’s gone. You can’t buy it back; you can’t buy your privacy back. Ooh I want to be alone. F**k you. We’ve been in your living room. We were at your birth. You filmed it for us and showed us the placenta and now you want some privacy?”
On his secret relationship and wedding to Rachel Weisz: “We got away with it. We did it privately and I’ve got a lot of people to thank for that. But that was the point, we did it for private reasons. Because we didn’t want it f**ked up, because that would be sharing a secret. And the whole point is that it was a secret. A secret is a secret in my mind.” - via British GQ.
