Daniel Craig: Bond is popcorn hero

Daniel Craig says James Bond is a "popcorn" action hero.
The actor boasted that his portrayal of the spy is exactly how it should be. He revealed his James Bond is a modern man, who still has an edge of "macho killer".
"I play Bond like his inventor, the author Ian Fleming, wanted him to be: a macho, a killer and a stone-cold spy, who sells his own grandmother," Daniel told the German edition of Cosmopolitan magazine. "[He's a contemporary] action hero in popcorn cinema, absolutely!"
Daniel thinks the definition of macho has changed. The actor believes modern women are attracted to men who are more in touch with their feminine side, rather than those who display traditional masculine qualities.
"But I think that a real macho seems ridiculous to women today. A modern man has to get down to it when it's necessary. But at the same time he's sensitive and responsible," Daniel explained. "[Am I macho in real-life?] Enough to make it in the industry!"
Daniel admits he is quite dull in real life. He confessed his home life with his actress wife Rachel Weisz is relatively normal in comparison with James Bond's double life.
"If you really want to you can avoid any form of publicity. And to be honest: my private life isn't that thrilling! If I'm not working I try to sleep long and watch countless DVDs," Daniel revealed. "I mean, is there anything better then to lie on your couch on a rainy Saturday with your wife in your arms and your remote in your hand?"
