Speaking about the character, who is famous for his womanising, Craig said, “He’s very fucking lonely. There’s a great sadness. He’s fucking these beautiful women but then they leave and it’s … sad.”

“And as a man gets older it’s not a good look. It might be a nice fantasy – that’s debatable – but the reality, after a couple of months …” the actor added. However Craig does feel that improvements had been made in Bond’s attitude to women since he took over the role.

“Hopefully, my Bond is not as sexist and misogynistic as [earlier incarnations],” the actor said. “The world has changed. I am certainly not that person. But he is, and so what does that mean? It means you cast great actresses and make the parts as good as you can for the women in the movies.”

When asked if he planned to continue on as the secret agent after Spectre Craig revealed, “At this moment, no. I have a life and I’ve got to get on with it a bit. But we’ll see.” But as for what he’s enjoyed about being Bond, Craig was honest about the perks the role has brought him.

“You know, it sounds awful but I’ve been left a wealthy man by doing this,” Craig said. “I can afford to live very comfortably. Things are taken care of. Family and kids are taken care of and that’s a massive relief in anybody’s life. I’m incredibly fortunate.”
