Daniel Craig criticizes the Kardashian family and talks privacy

11/30/2011 by Kristina Lopez

Daniel Craig is well aware of the Kardashian family but it is unlikely he would be a fan reality family.

The actor recently spoke to British GQ magazine about being famous and keeping parts of his life private and cited the infamous "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" stars as an example.

"Look at the Kardashians, they're worth millions. Millions" the 43-year-old actor told the magazine for its January issue. "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 [expletive] idiot on television and then you'll pay me millions?'"

The Kardashians came up when the actor was asked about doing interviews and revealing aspects of his personal life. "I think there's a lot to be said for keeping your own counsel," he said."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. You can't buy it back -- you can't buy your privacy back."

"You can't buy it back - you can't buy your privacy back," Craig went on to say. "'Ooh I want to be alone.' [Expletive] you. We've been in your living room. We were at your birth. You filmed it for us and showed us the placenta and now you want some privacy?"

Craig and actress Rachel Weisz, 41, tied the knot in a low-key wedding in upstate New York in June. The couple kept quiet about their romance, but were first linked in 2010. Only four people attended the wedding including Craig's daughter Ella and Weisz's son Henry.

Speaking of his wedding, Craig told the magazine, "We got away with it. We did it privately and I've got a lot of people to thank for that. But that was the point, we did it for private reasons."

He added, "Because we didn't want it [expletive] up, because that would be sharing a secret. And the whole point is that it was a secret. A secret is a secret in my mind."

The actor starred in James Bond films "Casino Royale" and "Quantum of Solace" and recently appeared in the sci-fi western "Cowboys & Aliens."

It was announced earlier this month that Craig will reprise his role as Bond for the 23rd film in the franchise titled "Skyfall." The new movie will be directed by Sam Mendes. Javier Bardem plays a villain.

He will next appear in the Hollywood remake of "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" due out on December 21. Check out a trailer below.
