Daniel Craig is ‘naked throughout almost the whole movie’ in his last stint as James Bond

Daniel Craig is ‘naked throughout almost the whole movie’ in his last stint as James Bond

DANIEL Craig says it took him a year to get into shape for his final outing as James Bond – four times longer than normal.

The 007 actor revealed his age took its toll on his preparation for the film, which comes six years after his last foray as Bond in Spectre in 2015.

Daniel, 53, said: “Getting into shape for it was a lot harder than 15 years ago. Back then, I did it in three months, but this time, it took me about a year.”

The Chester born star has played the leading character in the spy franchise for 15 years and has now completed five films.

Daniel’s most iconic scene from Bond films remains the moment in his first ever outing as 007 – when he emerges from the sea in bright blue trunks.

He said purposefully chose the outfit because he wanted to emulate the iconic moment Ursula Andress walked out of the sea in Dr No in 1962.

Daniel explained: “I knew what I was doing. They showed me some shorts, some swim trunks, and I went, ‘Those’. Because of Ursula Andress, and because of that look, I wanted to flip it on its head.”

Speaking to Radio Times Magazine, out today, with Bond boss Barbara Broccoli, the pair also discussed changes they’d made to the gender balance in the films.

'He’s more naked than the women'

When quizzed on whether fans of the films would see female nudity in No Time To Die, he quipped: “Oh, I’m naked most of the way through the movie.

“He’s more naked than the women; I’ve designed it that way. I mean, look at Casino Royale.”

Daniel also said those working on Bond now were loath to use the old term “Bond girls” to describe the latest film’s stars, Léa Seydoux and Ana de Armas.

He said: “Call them that at your peril. With Léa Seydoux and Ana de Armas we leave it up to the audience to decide, but we know where we stand.

He’s really flawed. He’s got a real problem with relationships.

“There are certain things attached to Bond of which we would say: ‘No, you can’t do that any more.

“His attitude towards women and how the women are treated in the films.

"But I don’t make apologies for the character I play. He’s really flawed. He’s got a real problem with relationships. But I think that’s interesting.”

No Time To Die will be released in cinemas on September 30.

It was supposed to come out last year but was pushed back because of the coronavirus pandemic.
