The Kardashians are “fucking idiots.”
That’s what Daniel Craig thinks anyway.
The James Bond star takes aim at the First Family of Reality Soaps in a chat with the January issue of Britain’s GQ. While Daniel insists he “isn’t judging” the TV family, he says he can’t condone selling your soul in the name of good television. Daniel, whose hotly anticipated new film, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, opens Dec. 21, also blasted celebrities who share their personal lives and then plead for privacy.
“It’s a career, I’m not being cynical. And why wouldn’t you? Look at the Kardashians, they’re worth millions. Millions! I don’t think they were that badly off to begin with, but now look at them. You see that and you think, ‘What, you mean all I have to do is behave like a fucking idiot on television and then you’ll pay me millions?’ I’m not judging it. Well, I am, obviously.”
In Daniel’s estimation, there’s “a lot to be said” for keeping your private affairs to yourself:
“There’s a lot to be said for keeping your own counsel. It’s not about being afraid to be public with your emotions or about who you are and what you stand for, but if you sell it off it’s gone. It’s precious.”
“You can’t buy your privacy back. Ooh, I want to be alone. ‘F**k you. We’ve been in your living room. We were at your birth. You filmed it for us and then showed us the placenta, and now you want some privacy?!’”
Think Daniel’s got a point? Either way, 007 is about to become the poster boy for thousands of Kardashian-haters!
