The 53-year-old James Bond star was asked about leaving his two daughters money and said, “Isn’t there an old adage that if you die a rich person, you’ve failed?”

Daniel continued in his quote to Candis magazine, “I think Andrew Carnegie [an American industrialist] gave away what in today’s money would be about 11 billion dollars, which shows how rich he was because I’ll bet he kept some of it, too.”

He added, “But I don’t want to leave great sums to the next generation. I think inheritance is quite distasteful. My philosophy is get rid of it or give it away before you go.”
