Bond star reveals cosmetic surgery after set mishap
007 has admitted to having plastic surgery to fix injuries sustained while filming the latest Bond film, ‘Quantum of Solace’.
Daniel Craig reportedly servered his fingertip and had eight stitches on his face after a co-star accidentally kicked him in the face.
The star explained: “It’s a stupid inconvenience because we had to stop filming. But they gave me an excellent plastic surgeon.”
In the same interview he also said that all men have a crush on 007’s boss, M, who is played by Dame Judi Dench:
“M’s gorgeous. All men have thought about her at least once in their lives. The great thing about Judi Dench is that she’s the matriarch of British film. She has an innate power about her. And yes, Bond needs a woman like M to contain his nonsense and say, ‘Look, 007, you’ve been an idiot!”
“But they won’t sleep together. Not unless the cupboard gets very bare in terms of storylines.”
Craig, who is on his second Bond film after succeeding Pierce Brosnan to make “Casino Royale” in 2006, said he hoped he had brought something new to 007’s character.
“I wanted some fallibility. It’s no good if Bond is a cocktail-swigging sexist pig with no interior struggle. Bond is often pissed off or upset, and I wanted to bring that out.”
And he added: “I won’t play Bond forever. But I’d like to think I’ve added something to the lineage of how the man has changed.”
‘Quantum of Solace’ is in Irish cinemas from October 31st.
