Actor Daniel Craig chose Tom Ford to create costumes for James Bond movie Spectre.

(Cover) - EN Star Style - Screen star Daniel Craig has thanked Tom Ford for being “incredibly accommodating” with the James Bond suits he designed.

The British actor is back as the super spy in the latest movie in the franchise, Spectre. The character is famous for his dapper look, and so Daniel was excited to have his ideas heard when it came to the costume.

“Yes, we discussed it a lot,” he told Britain’s Hello! magazine. “We went to Tom Ford and he was incredibly accommodating. They made 13 copies of each outfit. The suits are fabulously made - they don’t split and don’t break.”

In fact Daniel loved them so much, he managed to bag a few for himself. They aren’t the only big screen outfits he has at home either.

“I’ve got a few,” he laughed. “And the black turtleneck is back (this time). I brought it back. I like it.”

As famous as the character is the buff physique Daniel sports when he’s playing him. His first outing as Bond was in 2006’s Casino Royale, when he was famously seen striding across a beach in a pair of barely-there, tight blue swimming trunks.

It may look like his physique comes naturally, but beefing up is getting harder and harder for the 47-year-old star.

“Nothing special – the usual exercising, working myself to death,” he replied of his fitness routine. “No secret method involved, just sheer hard graft that I’m used to. It’s getting harder I will admit, but such is life.

“I’m not strong and macho. It’s so funny that people have this image of me as the hard man when that’s really not me. Just an actor, folks – it’s acting.”
