Daniel Craig: I'm trying to quit Bond

Daniel Craig

Daniel Craig claims he has been "trying to get out of" playing Bond from the moment he signed up.

The British actor has portrayed suave spy James Bond since the 2006 movie Casino Royale. He is currently promoting his latest outing as 007, Skyfall, which has been a box office hit around the world.

Despite his huge success in the role, Daniel apparently wants out of the franchise.

"I've been trying to get out of this from the very moment I got into it," he told Rolling Stone.

Daniel is signed up to appear in another two films after Skyfall, meaning he will have portrayed Bond five times.

"They won't let me go, and I've agreed to do a couple more, but let's see how this one does, because business is business and if the [bleep] goes down, I've got a contract that somebody will happily wipe their ass with," he added.

The New York premiere for Skyfall was postponed until Monday due to Hurricane Sandy. Daniel was unable to make the red carpet event, but he sent a message imploring guests to enjoy themselves.

"I know it's Monday night, but I beg you please, get drunk," he joked.

You're tired of compromising for the sake of a demanding partner. Being more assertive is critical to the survival of your relationship. You should have your desires met, too.More
