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?”

    Satsuki Says:

    Mitchell, 32, and Craig, 43, became engaged in 2007 and even bought a penthouse together in New York last spring. But after their split, her father says she was so down that he became concerned that she had an eating disorder.

    “‘I have suggested to her on a number of occasions that she might have (a disorder),” he admits. “Yet whenever we’re together she eats like a horse.”

    Satsuki Says:

    Daniel Craig’s sudden marriage to fellow actor Rachel Weisz has left behind a devastating trail of broken hearts, according to the father of the James Bond star’s ex-fiancée Satsuki Mitchell, right.

    Christopher Mitchell says that his producer daughter is so torn up over the actor’s covert wedding to Weisz that she has forbidden anyone to even mention Craig’s name in her presence.

    Satsuki Says:

    His sudden marriage came out of nowhere,” the elder Mitchell tells The Daily Mail. “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.”

    And, he says it’s a shame because she was JUST beginning to get over their split from last November.

    “Satsuki has only JUST reached a happy place. She has since said, more than once, that the breakup was the best thing for her,” her father says. “She knew he was not the man she wanted him to be and there was something wrong in the relationship.”

    Why do you care? what they think , they haven’t been on this board for awhile, why bring them up. I just want to enjoy the new pics.
    and to 95, I think Rachel style is just fine, she looks good.

    Calm down! Everyone is disgusted at You and your sob stories! I also thought Daniel was disgusted at your persistence.

    How do you know that?

    maybe you should read some literature about that matter instead getitng educated through tabloids

    Mrs 007 Says:


    He cheated on her many times and he will do it again. He will get bored and move on give it a year of two. Sats will get her day of satisfaction.

    to Mrs 007 Says:

    What now, you wretch? You thinking of still protecting her?
    What a bad loser!
    No one has regard for her feelings because Satsuki is only acting to get sympathy of people.
    She has the criminal record that volunteered the false information to Daily Mail last February.

    Simon Says:

    @to Simon:

    Excuse me? Educated through tabloids? What the hell are you talking about? Just asking on how this person knows about hand holding?

  12. 112
    to Simon Says:

    Your question how this person knows about hand holding is quite silly. Make an educated guess! There are millions of books and other informations about body language published. But if you have to aks it’s save to assume you only get your knowledge through gossip boards and tabloids.

  13. 113
    Simon Says:

    @to Simon:

    Actually its not silly, just looking for infomation. I’m just asking this person on how they knew this knowledge because its sounds interesting and if they answered, could they give a direction to where i may find this information. Not everybody knows about body languages and some people might be interested in knowing.

    Is that OK with you? Or are you going to continue to attack me for asking a question and say that i only get my information from gossip boards? Are you the keeper of this site or are you its bully? Just asking….I thought this board was for everyone, not the selected few.

    Enough! Satsuki is no longer part of Daniel’s life. he has moved on with Rachel who is now his wife.

    Hi Guinness

    “Yo Mend–hall? you best be having fun! see ya sunday. ”

    Oh, is Sunday over already??? So much to catch up with!!!

    to Fio

    “Dan’s Bond – he’s one of the sexiest men! The thing about Dan is women obviously all want to sleep with him…”


    Hi Guinness

    “phone hacking! scary stuff that they deleted info for the sake of a story? money money money is such a double edged sword.”

    The sh*t is really hitting the fan here! There are more revelations every day, and even a cynic like me can still be surprised about the murky world of press, power and politicians…

    to Fio

    “poor Hugh Grant!! No wonder he turn his back on the world…”

    No, that man has been seriously kicking butt here. He’s been on various news programmes and political programmes, speaking on behalf of those whose phones have been hacked, and he was brilliant! He spoke so well, asked politicians some very uncomfortable questions, and exposed the dirty business for what it was. As one Tweeter said ‘the nation fell in love with Hugh Grant all over again.’ Honestly, I never thought he had it in him…

    “Naomie Harris Will Play Moneypenny In ‘Bond 23″

    If that’s true, what an excellent choice!!!

    Thanks for the video clips and the latest pic.

    Hi Guinness

    “he may have a second home established soon Mendel—sorry”


    However, according to Amy, he’s back in London, na na na…

    beautiful weekend here…hope it is in the UK for everyone!! our pool broke and we found it after our power nap was over. apparently the girls were too interested in the internet to notice the draining of thousands of gallons of WATER!!! ahhhhhh. if it aint one thing, its another.

    And celebrate, you have the man back in town–for a littte while Mendel. Did you go to the Potter red carpet? We were just making plans for next weekend–need a babysitter for the youngest or she will have nightmares seeing the snake and voldemordt and the rest.

    oh, Dan thread, right. ah, so, he is still sexxy, no? like my caption?

    Naomie Harris in Bond 23, definitely. i’m all in favor; she’s is very good at what she does. i think she’d be good as the bond girl. However, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny; no way!

    Mt Prickles Says:

    I should be Miss Moneypenny :-)

  20. 120
    No Harris Says:

    Hmmmm, I really hope she doesn’t get any part in Bond. And I highly doubt it. Eon doesn’t like it when actors and actresses talk about being approached and beind screentested and other things, before it is confirmed by Eon. So she better had kept her mouth shut!

  21. 121
    Mt Prickles Says:

    @Mt Prickles:

    Actually I think Billie Piper or Kate Winslet would make a good Miss Moneypenny.

    Mt Prickles Says:

    If I did get the part I would wear this dress to work :-) LOL

    Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig ‘want a Bond baby’

    The newlyweds could shock us all again with exciting news
    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.’

    Read the full story about Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz in Now magazine dated 11 July 2011 – out now!

    body, face, hands Says:

    @Body Language of Hand Holding:
    By the way, if you started talking about body language, especially hand holding so now you would focuson ‘face expression’.
    No one must be an expert of body language because people themselves show their feelings through gestures and face expressions.
    I saw photos which show Daniel and Rachel at the airport and I too noticed the way of their holding hands, they seem to me like a 18-old year couple going to the cinema to watch the movie Godfather, she’s the pretty girl and he’s a dandy. Nice for this couple if they are 40 and 43 old. I like his belt is ok. (:-
    But looking at their face expression makes me doubting they’re married.
    I don’t think that every freshly married couple must smile necessarily but Daniel seems a bit nervous, mad or confused, he’s looking down and puts face in that tone he’s not comfortable. Rachel seems excited, smiling lightly but still something nervous in her too. I have to laugh how she moves her hair in that attitude like she wanted to say something but cannot. Daniel sometimes is able to put a smile and being ok but these airport photos aren’t showing him in good spirits. His bad mood never changes if there is Satsuki or Rachel or someone else, that’s simply him. One note more, Daniel and Rachel look rather like the couple who date just so and rather being friends in bed and that is why they hold hands each other this way. I think they “like each other” than “love each other”. Tabloids make huge stories to sell a newspaper, first marriage, then baby, house, holiday and so on while Daniel never says how the things are set in fact.
    He had a secret wedding with Satsuki last year and break up came instead. I don’t think Rachel is last woman of his line, he can meet another different woman yet. Don’t buy tabloid newspaper and rather focus on Daniel’s face expression which tells you even he won’t talk.
