After dismissing the idea of joining up for networking applications, Daniel Craig is emphatic that he won’t be pursuing a blue tick on social media anytime soon.
The actor, 54, is adamant that he won’t get an account on any social media sites because he worries about saying something he’ll later regret.
He insisted that wild horses couldn’t draw me to a social media account.
Despite Daniel’s insistence that he was “not above” using the applications, the famous face doesn’t want to make a mistake online in front of the millions of followers he would undoubtedly amass.
According to the Knives Out actor, “I could learn it, we could all learn it; I mean, I’m not above any of it.”
‘I would say things that I would regret saying, and I don’t want to do that,’ is probably one of the reasons I avoid social media.
“I kind of want to try and think some before I talk,” you say.
The former 007 agent decide to be cautious because he had previously acknowledged difficulty adjusting to fame after being cast as James Bond.
The actor made his Bond debut in the 2006 film Casino Royale. Still, he admitted that he initially found adjusting to his newfound popularity difficult, feeling “physically and mentally under siege.”
In the Being James Bond documentary, he said, “Being so famous all of a sudden had an impact on my personal life.”
“I used to shut myself up and close the curtains, I was in cloud cuckoo land,” Daniel continued. Both physically and mentally someone was attacking me.
I was uncomfortable with my newfound degree of popularity. Hugh Jackman was instrumental in assisting me in accepting and appreciating it.
Daniel also admitted that he had been hesitant to take on the role of Agent 007.
The Logan Lucky star acknowledged: “I did not have a cool persona, so as far as I was concerned, I was already more successful than I would ever be as an actor.”
When Pierce [Brosnan] and Roger Moore portrayed James Bond in Remington Steele and The Saint, respectively, people exclaimed, “That’s James Bond.”
