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?”

    Hi mend &Fio. New work is kicking my azz. Computer training this week. BLAH! always fun to learn new stuff tho.

    And yes, nekkid dan will do better than leotard Dan. Can you say bathtub picture. or Dan with strewn garbage all over road with nekkidness. that is a fantastic dan.

    and yesterday I posted a new pic with comments…it posted, i saw it, and then today—it was not there. Did anyone see it. Fio–you complimented me on the link, or was that the fixation site? interesting. But Mendel–I wrote you a big long very important response that I can’t remember, but it musta been detrimental to our being because jjjjjj deleted it. and that is why i posted a sorry to Fio in the next post. weird. it was a new poster of Dan on the alien. was it a hoax, or what? ho hum. no biggie *’cept for Dan*.

    holey carp—IMAX Dan? I think I would have to put a seat protector if I wet to see that. *your welcome cheeky Brit*.

    Hi, susan. I don’t know. But Harrison Ford lives in Livingston, Montana.
    He has a ranch there, doesn’t he?

    That’s what the doctor at the ER said after she was thrown from a horse on the set of Cowboys & Aliens and bounced back without missing a beat. She was as tough as they come. She was one of the most experienced riders in the cast and volunteered to try whatever the stunt team deemed safe, including a cable pull from a crane out of the saddle, mid-gallop.

    In this third installment of the Cowboys & Aliens Interviews, I sat with Olivia Wilde whom I got to know very well over the course of the movie. These conversations are a snapshot of what life is like for a star on the rise. This is one of those wonderful moments where you get a sense of who a person is developing into at the cusp of a prolific career. We cover a variety of topics including not only her growing body of work but also where her passions lie outside of show business.

    Hi Guinness

    “New work is kicking my azz.”

    New jobs always do. If they don’t, and you are already bored in the first week, that’s a bad sign…

    “Can you say bathtub picture. or Dan with strewn garbage all over road with nekkidness. that is a fantastic dan.”

    LOL, yes, that is a fantastic Dan!

    “I posted a new pic with comments…it posted, i saw it, and then today—it was not there. Did anyone see it.”

    No :( I only saw the link to the fixation site.

    “But Mendel–I wrote you a big long very important response that I can’t remember, but it musta been detrimental to our being because jjjjjj deleted it. and that is why i posted a sorry to Fio in the next post.”

    Ah, that explains the ‘surry’ – it didn’t make sense at all! It must have been SOME post to have been deleted! I wish I had seen it!

    “no biggie *’cept for Dan*.”

    *grin*

    “I think I would have to put a seat protector if I wet to see that.”

    LOL! And wear Wellies…the floor is getting a bit too moist…

    to Fio

    “They are going to camping in Montana! How cool!!”

    Brilliant! Just like real cowboys – and girls ;)
