Daniel Craig & 'Skyfall' Cast Cover 'The Hollywood Reporter'

Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Naomie Harris, and Sam Mendes cover the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter.

“Obviously, financially I am pretty sound, and that is a wonderful thing; my family is secure. It is very strange — you’ve got no point of reference for something like this. I’ve spoken to Pierce Brosnan, but nobody can warn you. I love the collaborative process of moviemaking. But going out for a cup of coffee? That’s the price you pay,” Daniel said of how the film franchise has changed his life.

Also pictured inside: Javier Bardem receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday (November 8) in Hollywood. He was joined by Sam and his co-star Berenice Marlohe (in an Elie Saab dress) for the ceremony. More Here! »

Daniel recently talked about dieting for the shirtless scenes in Skyfall.

“I don’t look like that all the time. I start training about six months before we start shooting,” Daniel revealed. “What’s lucky is that we plan out the shirtless scenes quite carefully, so I can de-carb and all that boring stuff. The rest of the time I eat and drink what I want and just try to stay in shape.”
