Daniel Craig has made quite a fortune for himself starring as 007 in the “James Bond” franchise. His fortune is reportedly worth £125 million (approx. RM643.5 million).
However, the 52-year-old Brit would rather give it away than hand his massive fortune down to his children. Surprising right?
Daniel has 2 children. His eldest is daughter Ella, 28 (with ex-wife Fiona Loudon, 51) and 2-year-old baby girl (with his current Oscar-winning spouse Rachel Weisz, 50).
Speaking to Saga magazine, the Bond actor expressed, “I don’t want to leave great sums to the next generation. I think inheritance is quite distasteful. My philosophy is to get rid of it or give it away before you go.”
In the same interview, Daniel also got candid that the dream was never to play James Bond but to portray a superhero. “I dreamed of being all sorts of other things – Superman, Spider-Man, the Invisible Man, even a good old-fashioned cowboy,” he told the publication.
He added, “But (with) Bond, which seems ironic now… I’ve been lucky enough to land one of the best roles in movies. There’s no downside to playing Bond.” Feeling hopeful about the future, the action star suggests that he’s capable of taking on various roles instead of being typecast by his Bond status.
“No Time To Die” was supposed to hit theatres in April but has since been postponed to November due to the coronavirus outbreak.
