Here’s what the 47-year-old Spectre star had to share with the mag:
On how his Bond differs from earlier incarnations: “No disrespect to what happened before but this is completely different. Because I don’t know any other way to do it. However big and grand it is you look for the truth in it and you stick to that… and if you can have that and you have the car chases and the explosions as well, you’re quids in.”
On his feelings about James Bond: “I don’t know if I’d like to spend too much time with him. Maybe an evening but it would have to be early doors. What goes on after hours I’m not so sure about.”
On Spectre: “It’s Skyfall times ten! A celebration of all that is Bond.”
