Daniel Craig: 'Let's not forget Bond is a misogynist'

New, 64 comments

With early reviews of Spectre rolling in, star Daniel Craig has been kept busy with almost daily interviews to promote the film.

In an interview with Red Bulletin, Craig takes a moment to shed some light on his character, often applauded by a large audience for his iconically suave "way with the ladies" as the reporter pointed out.

"But let's not forget that he's actually a misogynist," Craig said.

The actor noted that while the blatant disregard for "Bond Girls" has certainly improved over the course of the past few movies, it's only because they fought for stronger female characters.

"We've surrounded him with very strong women that have put him in his place," he said.

Still, Craig's best moment in the interview happens not too long after, when the interviewer comments that Bond has "succumbed to the charms of an older woman."

"I think you mean the charms of a woman his own age," he corrects. "We're talking about Monica Bellucci for heaven's sake. When someone like that wants to be a Bond girl, you just count yourself lucky."

Craig's been making waves recently in his interviews for the movie, including this one from a couple of weeks back in which he admitted he'd rather "slash his own wrists" than do another Bond movie right now. Although, the actor recently rebutted that statement, saying that he's extremely tired and allowed to change his mind if he so pleases.

Spectre will be released in theaters on Nov. 6.
