Daniel Craig Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2016

Daniel Wroughton Craig is a famous English actor and one of the richest celebrities nowadays, best known for his famous role as James Bond in the last three movies. D. Craig has estimated net worth as amazingly huge as $45 million. He became extremely famous after portraying James Bond in movies “Casino Royale” released in 2006, “Quantum of Solace” released in 2008 and “Skyfall” released in 2012. Only from these three famous movies, Craig’s net worth has increased considerably, as he received more than $27 million for these roles.

Daniel Craig Net Worth $45 Million

Daniel Wroughton Craig was born on March 2, 1968, in Chester, Cheshire, England. Together with his sister Lea, Daniel was raised in a family of landlord and art teacher. There he attended Holy Trinity Primary School located in Hoylake. At the age of 16 Craig together with his parents moved to London, where he attended the National Youth Theatre. Daniel Craig started to make an investments in his net worth as an actor in 1992, when he had an opportunity to act in an American drama film called “The Power of One”. Four years later he was invited to play in “Our Friends in the North”, and that made another great investment to Daniel Craig’s net worth.

However, the popularity of James Bond does not only make him happy, but also causes a lot of trouble too. For example, now Daniel Craig usually complains about the extremely high attention of paparazzi, as he can’t live his life as it was before the James Bond franchise took over. Now everywhere he walks there are at least several people who try to take a photo of him, and Daniel can’t even simply get drunk while hanging out with friends. However, that exposure in photographs only increases Daniel Craig’s net worth as it has made him even more popular among the viewers.

Talking about Daniel’s earnings, we should mention that he received $5 million for taking part in filming the famous “Dream House”, and in the same year he was paid $6 million for “Cowboys & Aliens”. Surely, one more popular Craig role was in the movie “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” together with Rooney Mara, Steven Berkoff and Christopher Plummer. Of course, no single movie was so rewarding for Daniel Craig as “Skyfall”, which increased Craig’s amount of net worth immediately and made his name actually a household word. It was nominated for many different awards and furthermore, Craig received an award from Critic’s Choice for The Best Actor in an Action Movie.

Craig has increased his net worth even more as he has ‘played’ James Bond in several video games too. His debut as a voice actor in the games was in 2008, when he played in “007: Quantum of Solace”. Two years later he played in two games in the same year: “Golden Eye 007” and “James Bond 007: Blood Stone”. The last game in which Craig appeared as James Bond was released in 2011 and entitled “Golden Eye 007: Reloaded”.

So now you know how rich Daniel Craig is.

#Quote
1 Everybody always moans, 'Where's Bond gone? Where's all the jokes?' Well, give us time! I always had a master plan in the back of my head that with the third movie - if I ever got there - it would be time to take the gloves off and bring the gags back in'.
2 [on being asked to perform with Queen Elizabeth at the opening of the 2010 Olympics] My first reaction was 'How many people will be watching? A billion and a half?'! I guess I'm doing this!' She was great, a really good sport. When they brought it to me, they'd already told her that I'd be doing it. I didn't have much of a choice. It was literally a Luca Brasi situation from 'The Godfather' - an offer I couldn't refuse.
3 [on the evolution of James Bond in his movies] Sexual politics has come a long way since '62, unless you want us slapping ladies on the ass and telling them to go and wait in the other room because the men are talking and that kind of stuff. Bond remains a little bit of a chauvinist, which I think is good, because it means if you stick strong women in front of him, then shit happens. It doesn't take the sexiness out of it. The fact is he could die in any minute, and therefore he might as well jump into bed with somebody.
4 Most people who behave in a macho way, it's bluster. Most of the time we're all bullshitting our way through life. There are strong people on this planet, but it's all the swan technique: it looks beautiful on top and the legs are going like this, underneath, you know? Someone like Bond, it's 90 per cent confidence.
5 [on independent film] Sometimes shooting on a smaller scale, as long as things don't blow out of proportion, is very liberating. But I wouldn't like to self-consciously go out and look for some nice small project just to get a chance to prove my acting chops. It's like, I think I've... done enough of that.
6 [on product placement and the controversy over "Skyfall's" featuring of Heineken and not a martini] Now, product placement, whichever way you look at it, whether you like it or you think it's disgusting, or whatever, it's what it is. . . . Heineken gave us a ton of money for there to be Heineken in a shot in a bar. So, how easy is that? Just to say, O.K., there's Heineken. It's there-it's in the back of the shot. Without them, the movie couldn't get sold, so that all got kind of blown up. 'Bond's new drink is a Heineken.' He likes a lot of drinks-Heineken, champagne; it's all in there. I'll drink a beer in the shot, I'm happy to, but I'm not going to do an 'Ahhhhh' [pantomiming an actor looking refreshed]. And I would say this because they're paying, but they're kind of respectful about it. They don't want to screw the movie up.
7 [on how the character of James Bond has matured over time] What I'm doing is not what Pierce was doing, and Pierce wasn't doing what Roger Moore was doing, or what Sean was doing, or what Timothy [Dalton] was doing. Things have changed. It's just kind of the ride of it. Pierce used to say that it's like being responsible for a small country. It's kind of like you have to look after it diplomatically. I kind of get that, but I can't really say that's my deal. I'm not going to be the poster boy for this. Although I am the poster boy. It's amazing how many times I've sat in interviews like this in a bar or a hotel, and it's 11 o'clock in the morning and someone sends a martini over [laughing]. And it's like, Really? It's 11 o'clock! Cheers! I'm not going to drink it.
8 You talk to people in the movie business who have been doing this 40 years and they all say the difference is that, back in the day, you could go and have a drink in the bar, get drunk, fall over, have a good time, relax, whatever, and no one would know about it. But now everyone's got a camera. Not that all I want to do is get drunk in a bar, but that's an example. So you can't live a normal life anymore. Because it will become public knowledge that you've whatever-gotten drunk in a bar or skinny-dipped on a beach or something. Things that normal people do occasionally. And in a way that's kind of-I've got to be high-class. I've done a lot of things in my life. But you have to think in that way. Which is sad, because I like bars.
9 I think there's a lot to be said for keeping your own counsel. It's not about being afraid to be public with your emotions or about who you are and what you stand for. But if you sell it off it's gone. You can't buy it back - you can't buy your privacy back. Ooh, I want to be alone. Fuck you. We've been in your living room. We were at your birth. You filmed it for us and showed us the placenta and now you want some privacy? Look at the Kardashians, they're worth millions. I don't think they were that badly off to begin with but now look at them. You see that and you think, 'What, you mean all I have to do is behave like a fucking idiot on television and then you'll pay me millions.' I'm not judging it - well, I am obviously.
10 [on the delayed sequel to Quantum of Solace (2008)] The new Bond movie is on hold but I am champing at the bit to get going on it as quickly as possible. I love playing Bond - I don't want to be away from it for too long.
11 [remarking on an injury he sustained on the set of Quantum of Solace (2008)] I lost my fingerprint, so now I can go out and commit all sorts of crimes.
12 [on first hearing he had the role of James Bond) When [Bond producer Barbara Broccoli] rang me to tell me I'd got the part, I was buying dishwashing tablets in Whole Foods. I promptly dropped them and went and bought a bottle of vodka!
13 Well, competition is so important, even when you're an artist. And if you deny that there's competition, then you're a liar. That's what gives you your ambition.
14 Method actors suggest that you do sense memory exercises every time you do a scene. I use every method I can. Whatever works, I'll use.
15 I always wanted to be an actor. I had the arrogance to believe I couldn't be anything else.
16 [on preparing for his second James Bond performance] Last time I did a lot of weights to bulk up. This time I'll do more running. I won't be as "no-neck". But when this guy takes his shirt off, he should look like he could kill someone.
17 [interview with David Giammarco, Hello! magazine, 11/27/06, on on being approached to take over the James Bond character] [Pierce Brosnan] and I had a few drinks over it and we discussed it. And his advice to me was, "Go for it!"--which I think is the best advice I could've gotten.
18 [on-set interview with David Giammarco, The Globe and Mail, 3/27/06] I got a personal trainer for Casino Royale (2006), which has been an absolute godsend. I knew I had to be in the best shape I could be, otherwise I would never survive it. Because at the end of the day, there isn't any painting-it-in for this movie. These stunts aren't going to be helped by CGI . . . what you're seeing is the real thing. And I've got the bruises to prove it!
19 [interview with David Giammarco, Hello! magazine, 11/27/06, about the plot for "Bond 21"] What we've done is set in process the idea that there's an organization out there and Bond is now after them. That's where we will pick up the next film. There's going to be a real element of revenge.
20 Sean Connery set and defined the character. He did something extraordinary with that role. He was bad, sexy, animalistic and stylish, and it is because of him I am here today. I wanted Sean Connery's approval and he sent me messages of support, which meant a lot to me.
21 I was affected by it - of course I was. What bothered me was that I was being criticized before I had done the work. I wasn't going to get into an argument with these people, so my only response was, 'See the movie and then you have the right to criticize, but first see what I am trying to do.' It strengthened my resolve. I was hurt by it, but it just made me try harder. The pressure was there. I know a lot of people feel very passionate about the Bond movies, but so do I, so I just got on with it. What I tried to achieve was just making a movie people will want to go and see, and I think we have made a great movie. One of the things I was criticized for was that I looked like a bad guy, but I was happy with that because I think true good guys have to step into the dark side to do their job. I wanted people to question Bond's morals and his judgment.
22 I wanted to do as much of the action work as I could, so that the audience can see it's me and it's real. I feel like I became a sportsman of sorts, and that meant acquiring injuries and carrying on and bashing through to the next level of pain. Although the stunt team did fantastic work to make sure that everything was as safe as possible, if you don't get bruised playing Bond, you're not doing it properly. I had black eyes, I had cuts, I was bruised, I had muscle strains, and I took a lot of painkillers. But it was part of the job. As much as I was hurt, the stuntmen were in much more pain.
23 I hope it's going to be liberating. I'm not putting any negative spin on this because to be typecast as James Bond is a very high-class problem for an actor, and I'm certainly going to try to get as much out of it as I can. Of course I am always going to think about whether it is going to limit what I do. I plan for it not to, but if it does, I'll approach that problem when it comes.
24 [interview in Entertainment Weekly magazine] They [diehard James Bond fans] hate me. They don't think I'm right for the role. It's as simple as that. They're passionate about it, which I understand, but I do wish they'd reserve judgment.
25 [interview in Entertainment Weekly magazine] If I went onto the Internet and started looking at what some people were saying about me - which, sadly, I have done - it would drive me insane.
26 [on the backlash from Bond fans] I didn't expect this backlash. You take it in, you can't help it. I've been trying to give 110% since the beginning, but after all the fuss, maybe I started giving 115%.
27 I just wanted to see him [James Bond] make a few mistakes. I want to make the audience believe that it's all going to go wrong and then when it goes right it's much more exciting. Every day you pick up an injury and you're battered and bruised. If you're not physically fit then it's difficult to get through. I'm a Bond fan. If I go and see a Bond movie there are certain things I think should be in it. And they're there. We've got them in spades. Nobody knows more than I do how important this is, and it's my job to get it right.
28 I kind of feel that if you look at the track record of most Bonds - I mean Sean Connery obviously defined the part, and even he struggled for a while to get rid of the mantle. That's the pitfall and it could happen to me. I've been working so hard, for however long it is I've been doing this, to try and stick to doing stuff I totally believe in and that would be wiped out. I thought, God, this is all right: I'm doing what I want to do. And that was a huge weight off my shoulders.
29 I hate handguns. Handguns are used to shoot people and as long as they are around, people will shoot each other. That's a simple fact. I've seen a bullet wound and it was a mess. It was on a shoot and it scared me. Bullets have a nasty habit of finding their target and that's what's scary about them.
30 It's something else. I'm speechless. I've just got to step up to the plate and deal with it. I had a confidence about it but then that's because of the people around me who made me feel good about it. I knew positively on Monday. I was in Baltimore when I took the call. My first reaction was I needed a drink.
31 As far as I'm concerned, I want to be nowhere else. It's difficult in film because everybody wants to make a safe bet with roles. But if you are going to do stuff then you should be getting strong reactions. I don't want audiences to be going, 'Yeah, that's all right.'
32 People always say, "That stuff you did in Love Is the Devil: Study for a Portrait of Francis Bacon (1998) must have been difficult . . . but I say, "No, it wasn't really; that was some of the easier stuff to do", because it was always clear and made a lot of sense. It's when things are unclear and when you don't know what you're doing--that's when things are difficult.
33 I don't believe in self-promotion, really I can't be arsed.
34 I go through life thinking it's all going to end tomorrow.
