Daniel Craig Clarifies “Slash My Wrists” Comments, Says Making ‘Spectre’ Was “Massive Amounts Of Fun”

Daniel Craig Clarifies "Slash My Wrists" Comments, Says Making 'Spectre' Was "Massive Amounts Of Fun"

With “Spectre” opening in North America tomorrow after doing gangbusters business for over a week overseas, Daniel Craig is probably beyond thrilled that his press duties for the movie are almost over. He’s been particularly grumpy in various interviews, and when the subject of doing another Bond flick arises, he becomes exasperated, infamously saying last month, “I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists” than make another 007 movie. But hitting “Today,” he explains to Matt Lauer what he actually meant by that.

“If you’re 200 yards from the end of a marathon, and someone comes running up to you and says, ‘Are you going to run another marathon?’ there’s two words you use, and not on a morning show,” Craig said. “So that’s really what that was about. And I’ve had massive amounts of fun making this film. Probably more fun on this film than I have on all the others put together.”

Basically, Craig is tired and doesn’t want to think about having another license to kill, drinking a martini, or bedding beautiful ladies. He’d frankly do anything but, which is his right, but not the greatest way to promote a movie.
