Daniel Craig enjoys exercise break

Daniel Craig

Daniel Craig believes doing too much exercise is "bad for you".

The British actor has portrayed James Bond in the popular spy franchise since the 2006 installment Casino Royale.

Despite being famed for his rippling physique in the 007 movies, the 44-year-old hunk makes sure he takes time out from his gym regime to enjoy himself over the Christmas holidays.

"I like going to the gym every day because I'm in physiotherapy every day," he revealed to OK! magazine.

"But when I go on [vacation], I eat and drink what I want. I just try and get normal because I think too much working out is bad for you."

Daniel features in some raunchy nude scenes in latest the Bond film Skyfall, which have helped elevate his status as a sex symbol even further.

However, the modest star isn't sure he enjoys the attention he receives thanks to his brooding character.

"I don't know [what being a sex symbol means to me]!" he exclaimed.

"It's not like I go out there to be a sex symbol. I mean, it's nice of course - but embarrassing."

Taking a nap, solitary walk or hot bath will revive your spirits. Get into the habit of spending more money on creature comforts. Treat such as gourmet food, beautiful clothes and intriguing books are investments in your happiness. Others may object at being put farther down on your list of priorities, but that's their problem.More
