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?”

    Why is he holding a drink?
    trying to hard to look cool.
    alittle over done.
    other than that ,he looks good.
    I like the writers description of him,.” he looks like sandpaper”
    ie he looks rough.LOL

    The writer did not do the description of his looks. The word – sandpaper has a double meaning. You just might have merely talked a dull joke though……

    It is strange that you should say such a thing. This is just a gadget.
    The editor wanted that, so was responsible for layouts in the cover.

    Newlywed James Bond star DANIEL CRAIG’s secret shame on new Spielberg movie takes embarrassment to a new level!

    The hunky Brit thesp put 007 (and new wife Rachel Weisz) behind him to play swashbuckling pirate terror Red Rackham in “The Adventures of Tin-Tin” directed by Steven Spielberg.

    Problem is it’s a motion capture film which reduces the actors performance to pixels and Craig was left more than red-faced wearing a super-tight costume.

    “We shot it in mo-cap,” Craig told Esquire mag.

    “Which is like: ‘F**k me, I’m literally in a leotard with a f**king helmet on, and a camera strapped to it’.

    “(With Spielberg directing) every f**ker in the world comes to visit — including Clint f**king Eastwood.

    “‘I’m gonna meet these people dressed like THIS? Playing a pirate, wearing a leotard and a camera?’”

    The good news for Craig is when the film is finally released he’ll look like a bizarre approximation of a human being in pirate garb as his performance is spit out via computer generated imagery into a garish world of make-believe derring-do.

    Nice payday for the honeymoon though, eh Danny?

    Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig ‘want a Bond baby’
    http://www.nowmagazine.co.uk/celebrity-news/529418/rachel-weisz-and-daniel-craig-want-a-bond-baby/1/

    The newlyweds could shock us all again with exciting news

    Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz got hitched in front of just 4 people

    Rachel Weisz’s son Henry, 5, is over the moon about her marriage to James Bond star Daniel Craig, 43.

    ‘Rachel’s been very careful about preparing Henry so he’s used to Daniel being around,’ says Now’s insider.

    ‘She’s anxious for the transition to be as smooth as possible and so far so good because Henry’s so excited to have James Bond as a stepdad.

    ‘Well, what kid wouldn’t be?’

    Rachel, 41, and Daniel surprised us all when they became man and wife in New York on 22 June in front of just four witnesses, including Daniel’s 18-year-old daughter Ella by his ex-wife Fiona Loudon and Henry, Rachel’s son by ex-fiancé, Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky.

    ‘Don’t be surprised if they shock us all again with another announcement of a Bond baby sometime soon,’ says our source.

    ‘Dan’s a real traditionalist and they both want a baby eventually, but he wanted to make them official before that happened.’

    TGWTDT is gonna be intense. I cried, I actually cried during the Swedish version–not sure about the book, but I remember being completely saddened by it–but I don’t know, I may have to wait for the dvd so I can skip bad parts. And i understand how Dan describes the idea of knowing what happens without showing it… they did that so well with Rapace. aaaahhhh.

    I seriously love how he uses the f-bomb. Imma gonna check out fixation site. see you peeps later!~G

    thanks for the article. i hope that Rachel and Daniel do have a baby. both have already proven that they are wonderful parents. but just wait! the trolls like Questions of a Fan, Gina, and Western Front (who claimed that their romance is a fake) will come out of the wood work to make more claims that aren’t true. like this is another story planted by their PR people so it will all look real. better yet,, one of these trolls will claim that Rachel and Daniel can’t have a baby without outside help.

    Cuz honestly you turned out to be the best thing I never had
    You turned out to be the best thing I never had
    And I’m gon’ always be the best thing you never had
    I bet it sucks to be you right now

    So sad, you’re hurt
    Boo hoo, oh, did you expect me to care?
    You don’t deserve my tears
    I guess that’s why they ain’t there

    You showed your ass and I saw the real you

    Thank God you blew it
    Thank God I dodged the bullet
    I’m so over you

    Yo yo yo Fio!
    thx for the articles. I just got the pic of them too going off in airplane!
    http://www.usmagazine.com/celebritynews/news/pic-daniel-craig-rachel-weisz-resurface-after-surprise-wedding-201197

    He looks so cute when focused on getting thru the hullabaloo! His jeans look undone, AND he didn’t roll them up. yey. AND she looks gorgeous with all that hair.(stats show men love longer hair on their women—-lucky me too!! ) They also hold hands diff than him and Sats. Interesting. That always bugged me. i am strange like that.

    Dan looked silly in the car, like he wanted to be nice and give the guy a compliment, but didnt know what to do.
    AND his body guard is a hoot. Did the dj/gun shack owner say, “as american as apple pie?” wow. and then his BG dropped the f’bomb excited about touring around with an AK40, in a red power car—IN NEW JERSEY. This could have ended more interesting folks. Sooo, Let’s reveiw…
    Dan got hooked up with a disc jockey for gun training for Bond, with a guy who owns a private gun shootin gallery–IN NEW JERSEY—AND a private bar with a running tap of Guinness, and who likes to show other men his red, “powerful, roaring” engine car? damn, dan. How do you get yourself into these situations? You must have a reallll interesting life. how do you practice and have fun when you said such great things about guns and how they are dangerous and kill people…(or something like that).
    And…..btw, did he say ella is schooling in ny in my reading catching up? he may have a second home established soon Mendel—sorry. I didnt want to bring that subject up to keep it secret, but hell, i got to get my info straight if i am on a gossip site, right?
    anyhoo. fixation site is looking seeeexy! ~G

    Questions of a fan Says:

    Actually I really like that song. And no Isabella it doesn’t get me started on anything thank you very much! Even though that’s probably how Sats feels right about now. And are you master and commander of who post what on this board? Hmm….I think not little lady. ;)

  22. 97
    Guinness Says:

    apologies about my rant…it seems as tho Dan’s friend brought the guns to a range to practice, rather than someone’s private back yard. IN NEW JERSEY. and they had a good time. the guy looks scary. and all this is my opinion. I would rather see the t0rture scene of Dan’s then this article.

    i will move onnnnnn

    Body Language of Hand Holding Says:

    @Guinness: Excellent observation, Guinness.

    By looking at the body language of handholding can reveal which partner is the “dominant” one. There are 3 main ways we can hold hands:

    1. Holding hands with your palm facing backwards (Daniel held Satsuki’s hand this way which means he’s the dominant one)
    2. Holding hands with your palm facing forwards (Daniel holds Ella’s hand this way which means he’s being submissive to her)
    3. Holding hands with your palm facing towards your body (Daniel and Rachel hold hands this way which means they’re equally dominant)

    Satsuki Says:

    CRAIG’S MARRIAGE TO WEISZ STUNS EX-FIANCEE
    DANIEL CRAIG’s shock wedding has left the family of his ex-girlfriend floored.

    The James Bond star married fellow Brit Rachel Weisz in New York last month (Jun11), and the nuptials that stunned Hollywood also served up a huge surprise for the actor’s ex-fiancee Satsuki Mitchell and her folks.

    Her father Christopher Mitchell has opened up to Britain’s Daily Mail, explaining his daughter has forbidden family members from mentioning Craig’s name.

    He says, “His sudden marriage came out of nowhere. We heard about it like everyone else – by reading the newspapers. She doesn’t mention his name now and tells me off if I do.

    “Satsuki has only just reached a happy place. She has since said, more than once, that the break-up was the best thing for her.

    “She knew he was not the man she wanted him to be and there was something wrong in the relationship.”

    Mitchell, 32, and Craig, 43, became engaged in 2007. They split in November (10).
