CATEGORIES MoviesWhen he isn't blasting the Kardashians, Daniel Craig is taking out his anger on politicians. "Politicians are shitheads," Craig reportedly said in a new interview with Men's Journal (not yet online). "That's how they become politicians, even the good ones. We're actors, we're artists, we're very nice to each other. They'll turn around and stab you in the fucking back."
Craig takes out most of his aggressions on former British Prime Minister Tony Blair. "Tony Blair started it much more than anybody's ever done. 'Go and have tea at 10 Downing Street.' It becomes 'Mephisto,'" the 'Dragon Tattoo' star said, conflating political elbow-rubbing in the 21st century with the 1936 novel about an actor saddling up with the Nazi party to improve his career.
Of course, Craig is prone to speaking his mind. "Look at the Kardashians, they're worth millions. Millions!" he reportedly told the British edition of GQ last month. "I don't think they were that badly off to begin with, but now look at them. You see that and you think, 'What, you mean all I have to do is behave like a fucking idiot on television and then you'll pay me millions?'"
You can see a much more staid version of Craig onscreen now in 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.' He returns to the scren as 007 when 'Skyfall' is out in theaters next year.
