Daniel Craig covers GQ UK, says the Kardashians are “f–king idiots”

Daniel Craig is a curmudgeon. I don’t know if he’s always been so surly, or if it happened to him over the past five-six years as his career exploded (when he became James Bond). I tend to think that pre-Bond, he had some surliness, but I remember seeing him in interviews pre-Bond, and he just seemed more… open. More easy-going. Not so f–king angry about everything. Nowadays, he seems to have a shorter fuse. Daniel Craig will verbally bitch-slap anyone and anything. His interviews are full of expletives, which I usually think is a sign of someone trying too hard, but with Daniel, it just makes me think that he likes to talk dirty, and I like that. Anyway, Daniel has a new cover interview with GQ UK, to promote The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Daniel verbally bitch-slaps the Kardashians, and really any celebrity who whores out their private life.

On famewhoring in general: “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.’ F–k 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?”

On the Kardashians specifically: “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 f–king idiot on television and then you’ll pay me millions.’ I’m not judging it – well, I am obviously.”

Having a quiet wedding with Rachel Weisz: “We got away with it. We did it privately and I’ve got a lot of people to thank for that. But that was the point, we did it for private reasons. Because we didn’t want it f–ked up, because that would be sharing a secret. And the whole point is that it was a secret. A secret is a secret in my mind.”

On his marriage and Rachel: “Look, I’m in love. I’m very happy. And that is as far as I’m prepared to go. Life is long, life goes wrong and I don’t want to say something now that might be thrown back later.”

On his career: “I’m definitely not satisfied about my career. I don’t know how you can be, it’s the very nature of things. I’m always trying to figure it out, and I’m kind of unsatisfied constantly. I always want to get it right and I don’t know what the answer to it is. But I do know that it’s out there and I do know it’s worth looking for.”

[From The Mail]

I don’t feel like calling Daniel out on whatever minor hypocrisies, mostly because I don’t really think he is a hypocrite. He’s never really been a famewhore, and he’s always played his personal life pretty close to the vest. I understand the distinction he’s making between “famewhoring your private life” and simply being honest about who you’re with. Daniel hasn’t had any problems walking the red carpet with girlfriends in the past, and I don’t think acknowledging his new wife or the fact that he’s in love is “famewhoring.” (Although I’m sure Dame Gwyneth would disagree.) Sigh… I wish Daniel was talking dirty to me right now. Rachel Weisz is such a lucky bitch.

PS… Did anyone else LOL at the delicious bitchiness of “I’m not judging it – well, I am obviously.” Daniel is such a judgy bitch.

    Well, he is right.

  2. brin says:

    Love him even more now! Everyone is calling out Karkrashians for what they are.

  3. Addie says:

    Don’t care if it is judgy, he called out the Kardashians and spoke the truth that many are thinking.
    Hopfully Rachel Weiz and he can get some fellow A-listers to make sure that family never “works” in Hollywood again.

    Off topic: Anyone know when the Bieber/Yeater dna results will be done?
    Will they be made public?

    • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

      “Off topic: Anyone know when the Bieber/Yeater dna results will be done?

      I think that’s totally ON topic. We’re talking about famewhoring and you brought up Yeater. 😉

  4. spinner says:

    He is spot-on. I love him!!

  5. toto says:

    wth is that Boris Becker the tennis palyer in the first picture?

  6. Teresa says:

    Spot on! So very true. Daniel gave a voice to everyone who has had enough of the Karkashian’s idiocracies. Way to go Daniel! Oh yeah!

  7. brin says:

    Oh krap….Kourtney’s knocked up….the koven is expanding.

  8. Linnie says:

    He won’t comment on his marriage because if it goes south, his remarks will come back and bite him in the ass. I don’t blame him for that. As for the Kardashians. They have one of the highest numbers for viewing audiences of all the reality shows out there. So they might be fucking idiots, but they aren’t stupid. Their viewers are, though.

    • tapioca says:

      I’d have agreed with you before August 20th(?), but a fake wedding cash-grab? They have to be immeasurably stupid to believe they could get away with that!

      • Linnie says:

        I think they did get away with it. They have never had so much publicity as they have since the marriage troubles and divorce were announced and to paraphrase some old wise fart “it’s all good publicity as long as they are talking about you” or some such thing anyway. They are still raking in the bucks and even if people say they hate them, they are still watching and commenting and can’t wait for the next tidbit of gossip. I should be so smart to know how to pimp myself out for a few years and make a killing off the curiousity of others. They aren’t stupid, they are just really gross.

      • Camille says:

        Linnie: I couldn’t agree with you more. Well said.

      • laurielou2 says:

        Linnie: If the American public in general were as intuitive as you, the Kardashians and their slimy ilk couldn’t exist. Trash, all of it.

  9. Quest says:

    I love Daniel even more now that he was outspoken about the K Klan. Let’s face it every one is fed up of these twarts.

  10. bea says:

    He seems like a really smart guy that’s plain spoken – I like it. It doesn’t hurt that he’s supa-fine. I cannot wait to see Dragon Tattoo!

  11. Zelda says:

    I’m not about to freak out on him for saying something we’re all thinking.

  12. ? says:

    LOVE LOVE LOVE it. For too long people have turned a blind eye to the deterioration of TV/Movies. No longer is talent and hard work valued – it’s strictly shock factor, ratings and fame whoring. The best and the brightest are eclipsed by snookie (wtf?) from the Jersey Shore, The Kardashians and the Hiltons. YUCK. I don’t even watch TV and still know what a snookie is – g0d help me. The high ratings for these shows prove that people w. a brain are tuning out completely and those who are watching simply want to feel superior to the trashy people they are watching….

  13. Fakey says:

    Really! Why is this twat even acknowledging their existence? Doesn’t he know any publicity is good publicity? I didn’t know, who the fuck Kardashians were until some celebs like Reese started acknowledging them. I get, it’s heartburning to see bimbos making a ton of money for nothing but legit celebs dissing them make them look petty.

    • Carlotta Love says:

      I believe it was P.T. Barnum who said, “There’s no such thing as bad publicity” or something pretty close to that. (The aforementioned “old fart.”)

    • jinni says:

      “Really! Why is this twat even acknowledging their existence? Doesn’t he know any publicity is good publicity?”

      Precisely! There are some people and situations that need to be discussed and confronted in order to handle them because in the end it will have the desired effect. Than there are other people and situations that just need to be ignored in order to deal with them because any attention given will only make things worse. The K clan is the latter type, these people need to be shunned and treated as if they don’t exist and only than will they go away. They have no shame so no amount of negative attention will make them go away, it only eggs them on.

      I do my part by not watching any of their shows or clicking/reading post about them (this post is the closes I’ve come to writing in a post about them). I wish more people would do the same.

    • Delta Juliet says:

      He is acknowledging them because they are EVERYWHERE! It’s not like you can pretend they don’t exist. Even if we wish they didn’t.

  14. CT says:

    His crankiness just makes him hotter to me. SIGH.

  15. Suzy says:

    ? says: those who are watching simply want to feel superior to the trashy people they are watching….
    Or want to be like them! I see too many young girls who think modelling themselves after the Kardashians or Hiltons are the way to be.

    I love Daniel Craig. I think he’s pretty down to earth, intelligent and straightforward about what he thinks. Love it! I hope they have a great marriage and stay happy and in love for a long time.

  16. Cathy says:

    I didn’t think much of him either way before this. Now he is number one in my book, fuk the Kardashians.

  17. Cindy says:

    I don’t think he’s a curmudgeon at all. I don’t understand how anyone can watch and/or enjoy their show. I saw a clip and OMG. their. voices. Those voices could drive Gandhi to go on a shooting spree. One apparently just had an enema on TV.

    • CindyBman says:

      “Ghandi on a shooting spree” — it’s gallows humor but I love it! The visual is amazing (not the victims but Ghandi in his sari with a big gun).

  18. mln76 says:

    He’s hot for sure and totally right about the Kartrash but I think he’s surly because his movies keep bombing. I bet he’s being forced to do as much press. as possible go GWTDT because if it does badly it’ll be his third bomb of the year.

  19. Linnie says:

    He’s so short he needs a stool to sit on a stool. I remember his little bandy legs in a scene from a Bond movie. Total gross-out.

  20. kells-bells says:

    He’s 100% right! Oh, and I love him & Rachel! BEAUTIFUL COUPLE & I wish them well~

  21. anemoneblue says:

    He is dead on!!! It helps the fact that he is so hot!!

  22. logan says:

    The man speaks the truth. Which is so much more than the Kards do. I guess it just all boils down to which master you want to serve. Having a decent life and doing the best you can with it or the all might dollar. We all know which master the Kards serve (besides momma).

  23. Mikamoo says:


  24. noircat says:

    Oh I love his directness. All these celebs who pretend to be nice are just hypocrites. He mentioned the K’s because they famewhored that fake wedding as opposed to him who kept his wedding private.

    He is absolutely right. Why are people afraid to point the obvious.

  25. Nev says:

    okay calm down Mr. Craig.

  26. fabgrrl says:

    He is right, of course. But I just hate that he stoops to their level. I’m saddened that he even knows who they are.

    • CindyBman says:

      yeah, but how can you NOT know who they are? I’ve never watched one of their shows, I don’t follow them and I’m not of their generation; yet, unfortunately I know who they are. You can’t escape it.

      My husband only watches sports and news, hates gossip and gossip sites and HE knows who they are.

      It’s like a modern day Bubonic Plague.

      • Stellax2 says:

        I have to agree Cindy. I have never even watched the show and neither has my husband. You cannot escape them. It’s mind boggling. However, you know they are laughing all the way to the bank.

        Does Craig sound a bit surly? I suppose but I see his points and he says it without caring who reads/judges him. I like him and think he and Weisz make a fabulous pair.

    • Lady D says:

      Didn’t your POTUS also diss the K’s? I remember something about him not wanting his girls to watch the show. At their age they shouldn’t be anyway but if the Pres can diss them and they are still here, I don’t think they will be going away soon.

  27. Dawn says:

    When your right, your right! How I wish other stars (people who actually HAVE TALENT) would come out in condemnation of this trash as well. Maybe then people would stop tuning in, stop buying any and all magazines that even mention the name Kardashian and maybe just maybe they would finally take their big fat bank accounts (thanks to all you YEE-HAWS) and just simply go away. I won’t however hold my breath.

    • T.C. says:

      Well other celebrities don’t say anything or judge because as they say those in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. Lots of other celebrities are big time fame whores. Sure Craig keeps his shit tight but he also needs to do that to avoid all those questions about ‘did you cheat on your girlfriend with your now wife?’ ‘Did your wife cheat on her ex with you?’ etc.

      • cool girl says:

        So true. He’s been there several times and been very lucky that he hasn’t been villified over his cheating like a lot of other actors. But you never hear that from the fanbots, who will in turn trash someone else for the very same thing, in a heartbeat.

  28. Tina says:

    Okay I really kind of love him now.

  29. bigorexia says:

    He is right, but we would all take the same opportunities that the Kardashians have taken if we could. They are rich because people buy their garbage. I would do everything Kim Kardashian has done if I could be that rich for it and if I could get away with it. Maybe they aren’t as stupid as they seem?

    • CindyBman says:

      Seriously? You’d live your life 100% publicly? Create fake family situations just for ratings? Fall fake in love and have a fake marriage? You’d lose yourself in the fakery and forget who you are. That just sounds like a really depressing life. It is true: Money does not buy love (family, friends, spouse).

  30. Jenn says:

    Funny that everyone is going “he is so right”. Yes he is, but who is getting the headlines. Does anyone know why he is on the cover, the movie he did? He used them, but they are the ones being talked about, not the movie. That family is creepy, yes, but why is this guy going on about them.

    They got exactly what they wanted, acknowledgement, bad though it may be, people are talking about THEM—not the movie Craig is in.

    • heather says:

      So true.

    • CindyBman says:

      DC was responding to a question from the interviewer. He didn’t just randomly bring them up. (please correct me if I’m wrong – seriously)

    • mln76 says:

      Yeah it reeks a bit to me. He needs this to be a hit remember how badly Cowboys and Aliens bombed and that other horror movie. He’s not above name checking even the trash to get some press.

      • cool girl says:

        True. Can’t he just say respond by saying “I have nothing to say about them? He’s generating his own hype because he needs a hit right now after his latest bombs this year.

    • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

      Yep. They’re probably thrilled that an A-list actor took a moment away from promoting his movie to promote their “brand.”

  31. ella says:

    Why doesn’t everyone think this way and stop watching their crap and possibly we can get rid of them please people!

  32. Delta Juliet says:

    I have loved Daniel for a long time. And I love him even more now 🙂 A crabby man in love. Can’t beat it lol

  33. LeeLoo says:

    Mmmmmm….Daniel Craig is so sexy, especially when he’s calling bitches out on their BS. I really do hope things with Rachel work out for him. They seem like a wonderful match.

    Let’s be clear here. Just because the Kardashians have high television ratings doesn’t mean they are doing well. There was an article that said the Kardashians have lost close to 80% of their endorsement deals since the wedding/divorce fiasco and their clothing line from Sears is not doing well. So at this point they are losing money instead of turning a profit. Either way, they’ll still be set for life. They need to realize that they have made the maximum amount of money that is possible from famewhoring and it will only go down from here. Kim is already going down the path of Paris Hilton where in 5 years she will be completely irrelevant.

  34. Micah says:

    I agree with what he said.

  35. Kiki says:

    Gotta love Daniel. And I’ve always adored Rachel – so cute to see him talking like that, saying he’s in love. More man should do that.

    • cool girl says:

      I don’t think it’s odd for newly married stars to admit they’re in love. DC isn’t special in this regard.

  36. Southern Belle says:

    *swoon* He’s so handsome, and so right about the Kardashians. Wish their 15 minutes would hurry up and end.

  37. Skins says:

    When I see them I just think “stupid”. They talk like teenage girls and just sound like idiots. Thats what bothers me the most about their “stardom”

  38. MellaYella says:

    He just made a fan out of me lol

  39. Jackson says:

    I lurvvve him. Such a manly man.

  40. midnightmoon says:

    The GQ photog should be fired-how could DC look any worse? Yipes. Seriously bad styling/angles/look. Oh well.

  41. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    I’ll bet Kim’s feet are bigger than his thats why Daniel’s so po’ed.

  42. Jover says:

    Ghandi on a shooting spree made my day – but since when is honestly answering a question “judgemental” we express judgements about everything, and just about everyone on this site agrees with dc. You’re spot on ? says – there is collusion by all the media – someone in influence needs to call out big time the supposed serious media for also publicizing these talentless idiots also instead of lambasting them.

  43. Str8Shooter says:

    I don’t think he’s a curmudgeon at all. It is refreshing to hear REAL celebrities….and by that term I mean actors and/or musicians who have paid their dues and have, you know…TALENT..call out these dumb famewhore robots.

    Keep the K bashing coming!!!!

  44. Cerulean says:

    I love this grouchy bitch. I love that he’s not above some good bitchery too. He’s on board the hate train with the rest of us.

  45. fedup says:

    DIDDO Daniel! Our thoughts exactly-&they are DISGUSTING!!!!~! We do not & have not ever watched reality shows, but the media no matter which channel you choose, the stupid-dashians are in our face-& oh, boy are they IDIOTS!

  46. Criss says:

    He’s not that insightful for an interview about himself except that he doesn’t have a problem being negative. Oh Daniel I thought you were cooler than that.

    • cool girl says:

      He’s quite uninteresting, actually. I don’t find his grumpiness sexy at all. My grandpa is grumpy – not sexy at all, I hate being around him.

  47. Jane says:

    Reading this made my day.

  48. Faye says:

    I don’t care what he thinks of the Kardashians, I love him. He’s so damn handsome. Also, he and Rachel Weiss are cute together.

  49. Gabrielle says:

    I’ll forever see him as a poor lovesick puppy over Catherine Tate after this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4AgzQvFNZs

    I’d say he’s probably half curmudgeon, half really dry sense of humor about the whole thing.

  50. cool girl says:

    Big deal, who DOESN’T think the Kardashians are a jar of Cheez Whiz? The bad part is, they’re probably earning more than he and his films have been earning. Probably why he’s pissed off.

  51. jasmine says:

    Kardashian family individuals looks like hoares and act like scum of society. Kim Kardashian’s butt looks grossly big and fat. Her face looks too made up. Why aer people giving them attention? Who cares? They are gold diggers. Please, please do not give them any importance AND DO NOT WATCH THEIR SILLY SHOW. brain dead faMILY

  52. Jen says:

    100% agree about the Kadashians BUT he shouldn’t forget that he cheated on his ex with fame wh*re Sienna Miller and also dated Kate Moss who is not a woman that you can introduce your mom.

  53. elaine says:

    Kaiser- I like that too. One of the reasons I like him.

  54. Vanessa says:

    *le sigh* I love him. I wish he and his gorgeous wife would do more (any) photo ops together.

  55. Kim says:

    LOVE his comments about the KarTRASHians! I think he is pissed about the fact they they consider themselves celebrities when they are not. They are reality stars – BIG difference.

  56. Orange Cone says:


  57. Sue says:

    I call him a coward. He was actually refering to many celebrities – ones who sell their baby pictures or their vacations etc. However since he knows some of them are big names he would never mention them. Instead he picks on someone who he knows will get him press and at the same time not get bad press because he used a big name. He used their names for attention. Without them no one would have cared about this article.

    I would love for him to be questioned about his affair with his now wife.

    He needs a hit movie and for people to pay attention to him – sad he has to use a group of sisters on reality TV to get his name out there. He might be right but I just lost all respect for him. What a yellow coward.

    Oh and you got away with a private wedding because no one cared!

  58. whatevs says:

    now i respect him a lot more given he’s saying it like it is without kissing any fameho ass-anyway every single person in these gossip sites seems to despise the kartrashians… so how come they’re still on air? do they own shares of e! or something?

  59. Jazz says:

    Team Daniel Craig! The E channel and Seacrest have a lot to answer for – maybe they should change their name to K.

  60. DebbieO says:

    Daniel’s ‘dead-on’ re: ‘Kardshian’s’. However, ‘Doc Martin’ (Martin Clunes) would be an awesome replacement as the newer Bond; someone who’s not only charismatic, funny, and may I add surprisingly adept in his charcter analysis. Somebody give this talented man a chance!!

  61. Victoria says:

    Love this man! Love him even more now that he’s said this!

  62. jane says:

    i love him even more
    his right

  63. jane says:

    i love him even more
    his right

  64. Shannon says:

    You know what? Sometimes the world needs someone who is brutal, blunt, and bitchy all wrapped into one. I much prefer this sort of personality to someone who is fake and attempting to pull the wool over my eyes and playing the victim over something they were responsible for creating in the first place.

    And the Kardashians deserve the scorn. Actually, a lot more people than the Kardashians do.

  65. Clarice says:

    I’m totally with sue on this one!!!! Love what she said…so true….he’s craggy and needs attention to have his movies succeed. All he’s know for is James Bond…He’s f-ing pierce Bronson right now…after bond no one will work with him! Hell in a year you all here will forget about him!

    • Lucifer says:

      Are you a moron? Daniel Craig does alot more than Bond, and probably will for a long time to come, unlike your heros the Kardashians, who I’m hoping will end up forgotten and dumped by their network like those losers with the 8 kids.

  66. Lucifer says:

    Good for Daniel Craig. He’s got it absolutely right, the Kardashians are effing morons, act like idiots, and I guess the truth hurts. I wish they’d take these losers off tv. I hate them, so do a crap load of other ppl, why are they still in our face. Get rid of those losers. Say NO to Kardashians.
