Daniel Craig Covers 'Men's Journal' January 2012

Daniel Craig Covers 'Men's Journal' January 2012

Daniel Craig shows off his piercing blue eyes on the December 2011/January 2012 cover of Men’s Journal, on stands now.

The 43-year-old British actor, whose new movie The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is in theaters now, had this to share with the mag:

On the upcoming third James Bond film: “The script is better than Casino Royale.”

On training for Bond: “I’m a bit of a gym bunny. But the truth is it’s f–king boring. I do light weights and lots of reps… There was a class I heard someone talk about — spinning yoga — which is an hour and a half of spinning, then an hour and a half of yoga, hot f–king yoga. (smirks) What are you doing with your life where you can spend three hours on that?”

On Dream House, which was released earlier this year: “The movie didn’t turn out great. But I met my wife (co-star Rachel Weisz). Fair trade, don’t you think?”

On the age of the Internet: “Something like Blade Runner, nobody knew what the f–k that was. There was no fanfare behind it — nothing. You went in to see it and were like, ‘What the f–k is this about?’ It was great. You can’t do that now. I mourn it, I really do. Now, everything is explained. Now there’s Rotten Tomatoes, with 120 reviews and your Tomatometer. Just aesthetically, I have a flicking problem with Rotten Tomatoes’ graphics. I mean, what the f–k? I really hate the expert opinion. If you were a f–king expert, you’d be doing it.’

And our favorite line from the article: “Images of Craig/Bond’s torso emerging from the Nassau surf in Casino Royale provide prime self-pleasuring material for millions of women and a sizable number of men the world over.”

    So many F-bombs! Why Daniel? I don’t like him. He’s too ugly. I’ll watch the tattoo movie because the film looks interesting, but not because of Daniel.

  • bedds

    *Drool*. Those eyes! Love him!

  • susan

    so Daniel uses a lot of F-bombs; so what? at least he’s real not some phoney. you may think he’s ugly but i don’t.

  • gl

    why does it sound like he’s complaining about everything? If he just hates it all, why doesn’t he just become a hermit, build a time machine and go back to pre-Internet times when he was a nobody.

  • Candy

    What are you doing with your life where you can spend three hours on that?”
    ————————————
    Lol. Indeed!!

  • susan

    to gl

    daniel loves being an actor what he doesn’t like is the public invasion of his private life

  • RC2012

    @gl–I don’t think he is complaining, he is just questioning things. He’s thinker. However, thank you Jared. Best Christmas present ever!

  • patz

    Saw this movie!! Daniel in his underwear was sooooo yummy!! And his cat and glasses deserve for Oscar supporting performance!!

  • Yuri

    Lisbeth and Blomkvist.. they were HOT TOGETHER. EVER!!

  • Erik

    Banne, totally agree with u. All men should dress like Daniel ALL OF THE TIME, especially a sweater!!

    AHAHAHA. I couldn’t agree with you more!!!!!!!!!! TO HIT THE NAIL ON THE HEAD

  • YAAAS HONEY!!!

    bitter much?

  • Mike

    Yes, it’s BETTER much than the Swedish version lol.

  • Rie

    I haven’t seen this yet. Because of my DAMN country :(
    Anyway…. I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

  • meh

    No way! JustJared with actual personality/real commentary as opposed to PR niceties?! What is this world?

  • to meh

    I worry about your persecution complex.

  • dasda

    He certainly likes to b*tch about things. I have no problem with the cursing, but he seems like a pretentious man who has way too many issues with things. Wonder how his wife puts up with all of that.

  • Didi

    He’s right. You had no idea what a film was going to be like when you went to the cinemas 15 years ago. It was always a surprise. That’s why the 6th Sense is such a talked about movie. Now you can find so much info on a film that there is almost no curiosity to see it.

  • Elle

    @dasda. Rachel knows well him since they were young. And she was head over heels in love with Daniel while they were filming. She said recently – ”I am in love. I still am a Blushing Bride.” I mean, she loves more and more him.
    Enough said? xD

  • whatever

    @Elle.;yeah and I guess there was no problem for her to fall in love while she was still married.

    I’m so sick of the Hollywood actors doing this and pretending that it’s a normal thing.

  • Elle

    I think its ’things’ are not especially with Daniel. However, I am so sick of his ex’s supporters still walking around here. Lol

  • RC2012

    @whatever: For the last time, Darren and Rachel were never married. And like my mother told me, unless you’re married, you’re single.
    @ Elle – why would his ex’s supporters be on here? she has moved on, right?!! (complete sarcasm).

  • to whatever

    or should we say questions of a fan

    Darren and Rachel were never, repeat, never married. in any case, their relationship is long over. Rachel is married to Daniel. now move on

  • SDJi

    He’s just pissed because Rotten Tomatoes slays just aout every one of his movies.

  • Fio

    Hi, all
    HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!
    Enjoy the special moments of the holiday Season! :)

  • Alex

    I still love him even if he has not such a blue eyes. He’s not a pretty BOY, he’s just a rugged handsome MAN. So he is the man who seductiveness always oozes out.

  • Mendel

    To all,

    Merry Christmas and lots and lots of Danness!!!

    Guinness and Fio, if you pull a Christmas cracker, Dan might jump out (nekkid? in briefs? in speedos?)

  • susan

    Aw, still ugly @ 12/25/2011 at 5:26 pm

    you’re entitled to your opinion. however, if Daniel were single and decided to come my way i would grab on to him with both hands and never ever let go. i know a good man when i see one.

  • to 36

    Like I said
    ————————
    When? lol
    To be honest, I cannot get why you return here many and many a time. You never know why we/Rachel love him. No wonder, you have a strong prejudice against him always. Let Daniel/Rachel alone. Grow up!!

  • to 37

    Calm down. Why do you keep on crying for Satsuki/Darren?
    ”Those ugly “crater faces” have been trying to pursue me all my life.”
    lol WTF? Nobody is concerned about you as much as you are!! You keep on stalking his/his wife life. Go to a hospital. You need to be analyzed by a psychiatrist.

  • to 39

    Unfortunately I do not think him to be ’ugly’. And I love Jude Law, Michael Fassbender, too.

  • to 42

    That’s YOU, not ME!
    —————-
    Yes, that’s us, not you. No problem, eh? I love ALL of his, not only his appearance. I am very happy to see/meet him in my life. THANK GOD!

  • jiji

    I LOVE HIS BI**HY FACE!!!!!! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYY!!!

  • to 45

    LOL
    Yes, so do I!

  • Amy

    ”If he weren’t Bond or if he hadn’t acted with Angelina Jolie, you’d all see it too.”
    What a typical suggestion! No, Lala croft never worked for me. I rather like Daniel in Enduring Love, and I’ve paid great attention to Daniel since the Our Friends in the North. You seem to have a stereotyped thinking, no human taste is simple.

  • Elle

    @RC2012
    (complete sarcasm).
    ————————————————————————–
    Lol. Well, normal people moved on but ‘obsessioner’. Although they dislike Daniel, they always chase him, read an article or listen an interview, then they claim we don’t want to see him, he’s so bad! Is this some kind of joke? xD

  • JUDE LAW & FASSBENDER

    @ #41: I don’t know much about Daniel Craig except he’s got gorgeous blue eyes, he’s not bad looking for an older man and he’s a good actor but I wanted to comment on your other celeb crushes – JUDE LAW & MICHAEL FASSBENDER. You need to watch out for yourself in real life because you are clearly attracted to azz holes, especially if you have kids. Jude Law is a MANHO who cheated on his wife with the freaken nanny and then on the nanny with Sienna Miller. LOL. He impregnated some college girl from Florida and is now a paycheck daddy to her kid but he hardly ever sees that accidental baby. He’s just a paycheck dad. Micheal Fassbender has alcohol addiction problems and violent aggression problems. His ex girlfriend (an asian gal) tried to get a RESTRAINING ORDER against him because he beat her after he came back drunk from an awards show. I think he convinced her not to go through with the restraining order because it would make him look bad as an actor and she dropped it. You can find all this info online. Just looking at their faces I can tell they are jerks. If you look closely at people’s faces you can tell A LOT about their personalities. I don’t think Daniel is a jerk but he does seem to have a STRONG personality which is why some women that have been posting here are turned off by him, But Jude and Micheal really look 100% like azz holes. Be careful with the type of man you are attracting.

  • karen

    Sony’s much-hyped The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo opened in fourth place with a mediocre start grossing an estimated $19.4M over the four-day holiday weekend and $27.7M since debuting on Tuesday night. Directed by David Fincher, the R-rated remake of the hit Swedish film averaged $6,658 from 2,914 locations and like other films is hoping to pick up solid numbers during the holiday week ahead. Reviews were quite good and the Daniel Craig starrer has even scored some notices during awards season, however the dark and violent subject matter coupled with intense competition for the attention of mature adults led to an underwhelming result over the happy and cheery yuletide holiday. Still, a DOMESTIC FINAL of $100M CANNOT BE RULED OUT THIS EARLY in the run as moviegoers continue to catch up on films they are interested in.

    as for an Oscar nomination; on Tuesday, December 27 the nomination ballots will be mailed out. Friday, January 13, 2012, Nominations polls close 5 p.m. PT. Tuesday, January 24, 2012 Nominations announced 5:30 a.m. PT, Samuel Goldwyn Theatre. so tell us all, how do you know that Daniel will not be nominated. while i think of it, do you now get that Daniel and Rachel are married? last time I checked you had a problem with that concept.
