Step into the well-heeled shoes of James Bond, and one can expect to acquire heightened status as a celebrity.
But that level of fame, "Skyfall" actor Daniel Craig tells Vanity Fair in its November issue, comes at a very personal price:
“You talk to people in the movie business who have been doing this 40 years, and they all say the difference is that, back in the day, you could go and have a drink in the bar, get drunk, fall over, have a good time, relax,whatever, and no one would know about it. But now everyone’s got a camera. Not that all I want to do is get drunk in a bar, but that’s an example. So you can’t live a normal life anymore. Because it will become public knowledge that you’ve whatever - gotten drunk in a bar or skinny-dipped on a beach or something. Things that normal people do occasionally. And in a way that’s kind of - I’ve got to be high-class. I’ve done a lot of things in my life. But you have to think in that way. Which is sad, because I like bars.”
Apparently Craig's fondness for watering holes has spread, as he joked about the number of times "I’ve sat in interviews like this in a bar or a hotel, and it’s 11 o’clock in the morning and someone sends a martini over,” Bond told the magazine. “And it’s like, 'Really? It’s 11 o’clock! Cheers! I’m not going to drink it.'”
Craig's interview with Vanity Fair will arrive on newsstands nationally October 9, with "Skyfall" arriving a month later.

hmmmmm,..Apparently Craig's fondness for watering holes has spread, as he joked about the number of times "I’ve sat in interviews like this in a bar or a hotel, and it’s 11 o’clock in the morning and someone sends a martini over and fanty tuny.
I have no problem if a celebrity gets caught skinny dipping or gets hammered at a bar. Hell, the rest of us do it so why should they be treated any differently?
Been watching Bond movies since the '60s and, while it has taken a while to find a James Bond that I truly like as much or more than Sean Connery, I finally have with Daniel Craig. What Mr. Craig may not realize is that, while there are too many who will attempt to destroy a perfectly private moment for those in the public spotlight (for whatever reason they may have) there are still those of us who respect someone like Mr. Craig and would never dishonor a chance meeting with him in any way. Too bad that more people don't have enough respect for others these days.
Mr. Craig says famous people can't live normal lives? This just in. The sky is blue and water is wet. I'm guessing Mr. Craig loves all the $$$ he makes acting because most normal people cannot swim in a pool of cash like he can. I have no doubt that being rich & famous has its downside in trying to live normal life. But I'd bet the farm Mr. Craig would chose to have his picture taken rather than be the person taking the picture.
wow, who's the ha ter on this board????
6 bonds in all. my order of favorites 1Connery #2Brosnon #3Moore #4Craig, other two did not like at all Lazenby, Dalton
7 bonds, David Niven, 1967 spoof of Casino Royale
there were 6 Bonds, #1 Connery #2 Brosnon #3 Moore #4 Craig , did not care for the other two at all. dalton and lazenby. just my order of preference
he and roger moore were the best bonds.
please...drinks and suck face...do you people ever do that?
Shaken, not stirred.
where were y ou last night LindaJay23...we missed you
Its sad when normal people are so enamored of movies that they cant tell the difference between the actor and his character. Why are they sending martini's to the ACTOR that PLAYS 007. Its just dumb. Kinda like when italians were giving reverence to the Rocky Statue or to the Sopranos actors. Its movies its tv shows it not real life and those characters are not who those people really are. anyway its just sad.
I love Daniel Craig! He and Jason Statham are the best!!!!!!!!!!
I want to be James Bond so bad......
Oh yeah! Let's hit the sauce. Let's booze it up. Let's get bombed! Let's chug dat tasty sweeet lick-her!!
i am still so dam funny...
pud...hmmm refers to beak right? lol
that's majorie remember it.
"I’ve sat in interviews like this in a bar or a hotel, and it’s 11 o’clock in the morning and someone sends a martini over,” Bond told the magazine.
His name is Craig. Daniel Craig
love u!!! see u sunday
i'm invited to the party too...do you want to be my date?
Mr. Craig is sadly right. Cant we all get past what these people do for a living or get past who they play to realize that these are people are still just like you and I.
Mr. Craig (and every other actor for that matter) please feel free to come to any place that I am hanging out at and blend in. I promise that I will conduct myself in the same way I would want to be treated. (I.e. "a figment of the imagination). Sorry about the spelling.
Dont complain to much or the next bond will be black an drinking colt 45!they screw up all the good movies

Being of notoriety: is compelling enough to support NORML when life leaves 'normal' out of touch with reality?
Is dumping in the shower harmful to the plumbing?
It should break down eventually unless one of the condoms you swallowed while drug muling passed through your system. But please... please... PLEASE where at least two pairs of socks after your shower.

u guys are hilarious ..seriously.
i agree get rid of a the racists comments also
Come on CNN – you can do better and erase this dirt comments here. Its going down the drain!!
You must be new here because the same vile posters have been doing this for years. This is what they do with their obviously ample free time between trips to the welfare office.
your so right.
Bond would NEVER say no to a martini regardless of the time of day... Or b00bs
That was the most intelligent comment I've read so far in the CNN articles. It says it all. Thanks.
you have salt and pepper hair right? ...i am older....it will kinda of blend in .. you know what i mean?
I save a fortune on toilet paper by taking dumps in the shower...
i agree with daniel! everyone deserve 2 have a private life! his not an actor in action all the!
cute as a button ...a little salt n pepper huh?
James bondage. This guy should be banging hos not doing silly interviews.
Am not a street rat
Hate this comment tool
A little bit of insight from an important actor. And 5 comments from retarded people.
i'm not gay
He blew me this morning. And swallowed.
the spy who loved me.
I've seen him on interviews and he just looks soooooo tiny. Maybe he is the elf 007.
He seems too much of a little girlie man to be James Bond.
Who would you have instead?
do you think trisha would be interested in me?
