Daniel Craig addresses the “slit my wrists” comments he made in the past regarding playing Bond again”
Back in 2015, after he wrapped up shooting his fourth Bond film, Spectre, he was ready to ‘slash his wrists’ before returning as Bond again.
In an interview with Time Out London, when he was asked about the chances of him playing Bond again, he said, “Now? I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists. No, not at the moment. Not at all. That’s fine. I’m over it at the moment. We’re done. All I want to do is move on.”

Craig doubled down, saying that the only thing that could bring him back is a fat paycheck. “At the moment, we’ve done it. I’m not in discussion with anybody about anything. If I did another Bond movie, it would only be for the money,” he added.
When No Time To Die eventually came out, early screenings had critics giving it favorable reviews. The Hindustan Times review of No Time To Die read, “No Time to Die is almost worth the wait. Overlong and often very silly; visually stunning from start to finish and, in its final act, unexpectedly emotional, director Cary Joji Fukunaga’s film isn’t so much concerned with reinventing Bond as it is with reshaping the world around him.”
The film also starred Rami Malek, Lea Seydoux, Ana DeArmas, Lashana Lynch, and others.
