Daniel Craig Covers 'Esquire UK' October 2012

Daniel Craig suits up for the cover of Esquire UK‘s October 2012 issue, on newsstands now.

Here is what the 44-year-old Skyfall actor had to share with the mag:

On the 007 series: “I think what’s always fantastic about the Bond stories is that there’s always a darkness involved, but it’s a darkness with a sense of humor. A black humor. It’s about danger, but a good danger, because you’re in the hands of somebody who’s saying ‘F–k you’ to risk, ‘F–k you’ to dying.”

On the pressure of playing James Bond: “Bond movies live or die on their popularity. They force you to care about what people think. And I’m involved [in the films] on a very deep level. I have it in my mind all the time… So there’s that kind of pressure, and that’s an enemy in any art form, acting especially.”

On Skyfall director Sam Mendes: “It’s a very showbizzy story. I was at Hugh Jackman’s house in New York. It was a soiree – we were in a play together – and Sam was there. I’d had a few too many drinks and I went, ‘How do you fancy directing a Bond?’ And he kind of looked at me, and he went, ‘Yeah!’ And it snowballed from there.”
