Daniel Craig poses in front of a naked woman on the new cover of Vanity Fair!

Daniel Craig opens up in the new issue of Vanity Fair about the troubles of being famous. The Bond actor talks about his disappointment in not having a normal life anymore, and being under the ever-watchful eye of the public.

“You talk to people in the movie business who have been doing this 40 years and they all say the difference is that, back in the day, you could go and have a drink in the bar, get drunk, fall over, have a good time, relax, whatever, and no one would know about it. But now everyone’s got a camera,” Daniel Craig tells Vanity Fair writer Juli Weiner of the challenges of being Bond. “Not that all I want to do is get drunk in a bar, but that’s an example. So you can’t live a normal life anymore. Because it will become public knowledge that you’ve whatever—gotten drunk in a bar or skinny-dipped on a beach or something. Things that normal people do occasionally. And in a way that’s kind of—I’ve got to be high-class. I’ve done a lot of things in my life. But you have to think in that way. Which is sad, because I like bars.”

On the eve of the release of his third turn as Bond in the upcoming Skyfall, Daniel Craig reflects on the iconic character and how the franchise has matured. “What I’m doing is not what Pierce was doing, and Pierce wasn’t doing what Roger Moore was doing, or what Sean was doing, or what Timothy [Dalton] was doing. Things have changed. It’s just kind of the ride of it. Pierce used to say that it’s like being responsible for a small country. It’s kind of like you have to look after it diplomatically. I kind of get that, but I can’t really say that’s my deal. I’m not going to be the poster boy for this. Although I am the poster boy.”

“It’s amazing how many times I’ve sat in interviews like this in a bar or a hotel, and it’s 11 o’clock in the morning and someone sends a martini over,” he says, laughing. “And it’s like, Really? It’s 11 o’clock! Cheers! I’m not going to drink it.”

Of the controversy first kicked up in May over Skyfall’s featuring of Heineken, meanwhile—notably not a martini—Craig says: “Now, product placement, whichever way you look at it, whether you like it or you think it’s disgusting, or whatever, it’s what it is. . . . Heineken gave us a ton of money for there to be Heineken in a shot in a bar. So, how easy is that? Just to say, O.K., there’s Heineken. It’s there—it’s in the back of the shot. Without them, the movie couldn’t get sold, so that all got kind of blown up. ‘Bond’s new drink is a Heineken.’ He likes a lot of drinks—Heineken, champagne; it’s all in there.” Craig explains that “I’ll drink a beer in the shot, I’m happy to, but I’m not going to do an ‘Ahhhhh’ [pantomiming an actor looking refreshed]. And I would say this because they’re paying, but they’re kind of respectful about it. They don’t want to screw the movie up.”

Of seeing some of Bond’s softer side in Casino Royale—one scene in particular where he sheds a tear for his deceased girlfriend who betrayed him—Craig charmingly defends the machismo of his character: “He didn’t sob. There was, like, a tear in his eye. No snot coming out of his nose, you know.” This sense of humor is, co-star Judi Dench says, crucial to playing Bond: “The glorious thing about [Craig] is he has a great sense of humor. That’s essential—the whole essence of Bond is that he doesn’t take himself so seriously.”

Daniel Craig has looooooooong been one of my favorite celebrities. He seems so down-to-earth, and this interview really proves that. He’s just very open and honest about things, in a way I find refreshing. You don’t get the impression that he’s saying things just to “say the right thing”.

I can’t wait to see ‘Skyfall’!

Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz drop $11.5 million on a NYC penthouse!

Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz married six months ago in an impromptu wedding in New York, and now the couple have decided to move there!

The couple reportedly dropped $11.5 million on an upscale New York penthouse!

According to the New York Post, Daniel, 43 and Rachel are set to buy the three-bedroom, three bathroom apartment in the SoHo area of Manhattan.

They are said to have settled on the plush looking building after an exhaustive property search of the city.

The apartment boasts 4,350-square-foot of floor space and was listed at $11.5 million before being taken off the market last week.

Daniel and Rachel will also enjoy 2,000 square feet of outdoor space consisting of a private roof garden with its own kitchen, along with a media room with woodburning fireplace.

Brokers involved in the deal declined to comment to the newspaper.

Rachel used to live in New York with her former partner, director Darren Aronofsky. The two share a son, five-year-old son Henry. The couple split in November 2010, but sources say the pair remain close for the sake of their son.

Daniel and Rachel became close after filming ‘Dream House’ together.
