    Considering he made so much money from the franchise, wondering why he would **** in his own nest, go figure.

    Also mentioned no one makes movies like this these days, find that strange. There are so many franchises that regurgitate similar stuff, don't get it.

    Oh well, I am not a Bond fan, but my husband is, nothing will stop him watching this stuff.

    MTR:)

    Wonder if it's just publicity for the upcoming release, how could anyone be as ungrateful for such an opportunity. Maybe he's getting too old for such a physically demanding role and has been wearing his grumpy pants?

    Couldn't believe this- James Bond actor Daniel Craig was paid $US5 million ($6.49 million) to hold a Sony mobile phone in a 007 movie, according to new leaked emails.

    "Plus he hasn't had a big hit movie outside of the franchise, and he blames that on Bond."

    Why would he blame Bond for that? Weird.

    It could be "just a job" for him. Like everyone else, he is allowed to be a grumpy and unhappy with his.

    Dr Phil here:)

    why do some people always blame others?? Because they can not take responsibility for their own actions.

    No one held a gun to his head when he got offered the role as Bond.

    Bet his loving his holidays in the Bahamas on his yacht, sipping margaritas, with a bunch Bond babes.... Good on him, just stop complaining, its not a good look and wont be invited back to the Bond gig anytime soon

    MTR:).

    It says something like the interview was conducted straight after a demanding scene where he fell badly and had to get a knee surgery! I guess I'd be a grumpy too. But yeah, to go this far... his ego I guess. "He thinks he's better than Bond." LOL what the?

    That's right. He is ungrateful.
    I had a quick look at his filmography, I only remember him as a baddie in The Power of One before the Bond role.

    He would have known before doing the first one that he would get a bit type-cast from it...although; Sean and Roger and Peir ce seemed to have gone ok since.

    But; who cares if you get type-cast?; the money is fabulous and he can always go back to live theatre acting as many do, and disappear for a bit...still be doing what he loves and be super-rich in the process.

    Bit of a whinger.

    Yeah, can't remember any of the others complaining.
    As you say, with all that money he'd have the opportunity to do his wanky pet projects.

    From most interviewers Ive seen since casino Royale he wanted out. Qos he even had to help write due to the writers strike. He also just seems like a jerk from most interviews I've seen with him. A lot of better actors could be bond. Should be happy with what he has. Just on a side note I'm a massive bond fan and Dalton was the best bond.

    Not sure i understand your bitterness here.

    There are thousands of highly paid but unfulfilled people out there unless you are one of those money is everything people surely it isnt that hard to understand that he might not enjoy this role despite the prestige and likely huge payday?

    Someone take the jam out of your doughnut this morning?

    I don't think folks are bitter; just annoyed. Sorta like a parent who gives their kid a bike for their b/day, and they whine because they got a red one and wanted a blue one, or something else, etc...ungrateful.

    I think the point is; most folks are never going to have an opportunity like he has had/is having, he would know this (maybe he doesn't and therein lies the problem - out of touch with the real world), and he should have just bitten his lip, thanked one and all for the opportunity to be Bond, thanked everyone for his wealth and success, and move on...that is the professional thing to do.

    It's the insensitivity and lack of empathy with the average folk, Sanj.

    Like folks who say; "Bloody hell; my CBA shares have dropped 10% this month; now I've lost another $50k!" in a crowded room at a party in Frankston North. How sympathetic (or angry) do you think the listeners are likely to be at your "plight".

    It's the timing of the comments that is wrong, too; years later, after you have stopped being Bond and someone else is that man, then spill the beans in an interview about how less than fantastic it all was, and folks might be a bit more accepting..."Oh, really; I never knew he didn't really like to do that role!?" is what folks would then say.

    His attitude all just seems a bit ungrateful, spoilt and "first world problem" to most folks..

    I would say lack of humility, his personality, and impact of fame n fortune.

    Are you sure your not thinking of lazenby? Dalton was Living Daylights and Licence to Kill. licence to kill is one of the best in the series. If your going by the original books Dalton is closest to the source material :)

    No- Dalton...Living daylights was IMO one of the best- had all the authentic ingredients necessary- suspense, double crossing, action scenes, the plot I found was good... etc.
