Daniel Craig, 53, has acknowledged that remarks he made to Time Out in 2015 regarding playing James Bond again, seemed “ungrateful”. Daniel candidly revealed all in a new interview.

I was joking, but it came across as ungrateful.

In 2015, after the filming had completed for his fourth Bond film, Spectre, Daniel spoke to Time Out about his future with the Bond trilogy.

When asked if he would consider doing another Bond movie, he replied abruptly: “I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists.

“I’m over it at the moment.

“All I want to do is move on.”

Daniel, along with Bond producer, Barbara Broccoli, 61, have now addressed these remarks prior to the release of Daniel’s last Bond movie, No Time to Die.

Speaking to this week’s Radio Times, he said: “To be completely honest, I was thinking: I don’t know if I can do another one of these.

“I finished Spectre with a broken leg.

“But a little bit more skill in the answer might have been better.”

He added: “I was joking, but it came across as ungrateful.”

Barbara herself also took part of the blame for that interview.

The Bond producer said that after his injury, Daniel was overworked with a week of press events.

This then led to Daniel to be very annoyed at the team, which escalated with the comments he made.

Daniel is best known for playing James Bond in the eponymous film series, beginning with Casino Royale in 2006.

Casino Royale premiered on November 14 2006, and grossed over £500million worldwide.

This made it the highest grossing Bond film until the release of Skyfall in 2012.

Development for Daniel’s latest Bond instalment, No Time to Die, began in 2016.

Danny Boyle was originally set to direct it, however he left due to creative differences in August 2018.

His departure, and the COVID-19 pandemic, led to the delay of the movie’s release.

The world premiere for No Time to Die will now take place at the Royal Albert Hall in London on September 28 2021.

It’s theatrical release will follow on September 30.
