Daniel Craig isn’t expecting to be quite as buff for next year’s Bond 22 as he was for his debut as James Bond in 2006’s Casino Royale.
The Daily Express cited a recent GQ Magazine article where Craig mentioned that he didn’t think he’d be bulking up as much for his next appearance as 007.
‘I think Barbara is going to have a word about that,’ says Craig, before mimicking a whinier version of himself in conversation with producer Barbara Broccoli:
“‘I’m not going to take my top off.’
‘Yes, you are.'”
Craig adds: ‘We’ll see. There are no plans. Bond might have to take a shower, what can I tell you?’
‘I’m probably not going to bulk up as much as I did last time,’ he says. ‘It was an exercise that worked and I’m very happy we did it.’
Speaking about his upcoming film, the WWII Polish Resistance epic Defiance, Craig adds: ‘A couple of weeks into filming, Simon my trainer will come over and we’re going to get straight back into it, which is the way it goes. The weird life that I live now!’
