Daniel Craig Covers 'Esquire' August 2011

Daniel Craig Covers 'Esquire' August 2011

Daniel Craig covers Esquire magazine’s August 2011 issue, on newsstands Tuesday (July 12).

Here’s what the 43-year-old Cowboys & Aliens – and newly married – actor had to share:

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!”

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—ing 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 [director David 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—ing serious?”

    Fincher throw fresh light on a subject, flexibility of interpretation or of options. Daniel will reveal a sensitive interpreter of nature.

    I find him interesting and attractive but no classically handsome (too short) and doesn’t photograph well at times.

  • Elle

    Catch!! Bless me if it isn’t true! Thanks, ring.

  • Elle

    to Thelma
    All the pretty boys are boring. They look alike to me – boring verbosity, too bloody cocksure, narcist. They cannot love a woman, but they are in love with themselves. Disgusting!

  • Lee-chan

    Daniel is back on Mag’s cover! And he is a badass!

  • KAKA

    I’m thrilled to seeing The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo. He’s the rock!
