Who's really the f**king idiots are the people who watch the shows and buy the magazines. Without them, the Ks wouldn't be around. I wish people would boycott them. Go Daniel! Stick it to 'em!!!!!!
I hope he stays out of the ring and lets the subject drop. I have never understood the fascination with people who are famous for being famous :-k

How are they going to do that? E! will stop interviewing him or something? :roll: They are the f*cking idiots who are the butt of all jokes and even those in HW and the public have no respect for them. Can't wait for Ricky to skewer them further.
DC on the other hand is a well respected talented guy who is high profile enough. This will not go any further imo. Even if the Ks say something back I think DC will not be sparring cuz what he has said says it all (I hope he knows one can't argue with idiots as they will only bring you down to their level).

DC only said what we all are thinking. Even if DC said this in the interview totally unintentionally, he could have retracted it later on if he and his publicist really thought what he said would be detrimental to his image. So far the comments are favorable to him and what he said. I think he will get new respect for his words and can't be too bad for Tattoo either not that it needs this kind of attention.

It would only confirm their stupidity and be counter productive if the K’s were to have a pop at him, because their actions can’t really be defended. Although DC didn’t mince his words I think they got off lightly, he could have really Laid into them, part of their quest for fame involved debasing themselves especially when KK leaked her sex tape and there was more than a placenta on display for all to see. I suppose if you read between the lines this is metaphorically hinted at too.

One thing for sure, she won't bother with Bond girl quotes anymore :lol:

Somewhat I love this. He gets good press, so fine...on the other hand, he has one hell of a foul mouth :lol: Unpredictable as usual.

Re comments about a lasting marriage - he said the most important thing, which is, he is in it for the long run (no reason for RW to slap him) but he ain't no fool and knows, there is no guarantee for nothing, hence his words.

Its still going stron g on twitter and many, who say, they love him more now or at all, like thissupernino21 Supernino

Its amazing - he gets 1000's and 1000's of ratings, almost ALL posiotive and those, who are negative are being shut up big time :D Seems, for once, headlines about him are gaining some positive respond.

He has just gone up in my estimation by 1000%!

Daniel Craig has ‘personal’ tattoos (go figure :lol: )

Daniel Craig says his new tattoos are “part of a stage” he is in.

After spending years in the limelight the 43-year-old actor is keen to keep certain aspects of his life private.

Along with details about his recent marriage to actress Rachel Weisz, the hunk is content to keep the meaning behind his body art a secret too.

There a words inked on his right bicep and a mystery symbol on his left arm.

“There are mine. They are two very personal tattoos. Yes, they are [new]. They’re just part of a stage I’m in.

“You should see the rest of my body. Then you’d be intrigued. Oh boy. It’s been a very complicated couple of years,” he laughed to the January edition of GQ.

The actor is famous across the world for playing suave spy James Bond.

He is currently filming the new Bond film, Skyfall, and can soon be seen in the thriller The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Although Daniel dreamed of becoming a movie star he never believed he actually would make it.

“I didn’t get into this business to become famous. Genuinely,” he explained. “You know what, at the back of my head, there was probably always an idea, ‘God, I’d love to be a movie star.’ But honestly, I came from Liverpool. I thought would be fat chance of that happening. I just wanted to be an actor and do my thing and this has happened.”

The news channels here in the US are all lit up with Daniel's Kardashian rant. It was even on the local radio "Entertainment news" blurb, which is weird because DC is almost never mentioned in the US media like this. It's strange (and ironic) that he makes all these quality movies and gets no attention but as soon as he mentions the Kardashians all the news outlets are all over it. It totally proves his point. :roll:

I just hope it doesn't backfire on him and end up bringing him even less privacy of his own. :lol: All the reporters are going to be out there now hounding him for more comments like these because it creates a big story of a celebrity "showdown."

Craig, who managed to keep his marriage to Rachel Weisz under wraps in the summer, told the January edition of GQ magazine: '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*** 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?

Love the placenta bit :lol: :lol:

Daniel Craig on ‘Quantum of Solace’: ‘We were stuffed’
The actor on his hopes for 'Skyfall' and 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo'


Daniel Craig has spoken exclusively to Time Out about his upcoming role in ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' and his hopes for next year’s ‘Skyfall’, his third stab at playing James Bond, this time under the direction of British director Sam Mendes. The 43-year-old British actor has also expressed his frustration that the last Bond movie, ‘Quantum of Solace’, was not the rousing success it should have been.

Talking of ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’, which opens in cinemas this Christmas, Craig admits he’s confused by those critics who have interpreted Stieg Larsson’s novel as being sexist. The book – and the new film – tell of Lisbeth Salander (Rooney Mara), a young Swedish woman and top-grade computer hacker who is repeatedly abused by men. She is joined by a disgraced journalist, Mikael Blomkvist (Craig), in the hunt for a serial killer of women.

‘I get a lot of questions from people saying, “Do you think the film is sexist?” But I don’t see it,’ Craig says. ‘With anything like this that becomes a phenomenon, people analyse it up its own arse: “Ah, I see it now! It’s sexist!” People point out to me that the original book was called “Men Who Hate Women”, and ask, “Do you see anything in the title?” It’s like, no: it’s about men who hate women isn’t it? Just because he’s writing about misogyny doesn’t mean he’s a misogynist, does it? I don’t see it.’

Craig is full of praise for his co-star, Mara (‘The Social Network’), who won the role of Salander after fierce competition from well-known actresses and other lesser known names. ‘There was a whole shenanigans going on while she was being cast, and David Fincher was adamant,’ Craig explains. ‘When she puts the hoodie on and the leather jacket, she looks like a 14-year-old boy, she looks sexless. Which is perfect.’

Talking of the film’s director, Craig identifies ‘The Social Network’ as a turning point in Fincher’s career – a sign of a new maturing of the already-celebrated director of ‘Fight Club’ and ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’. ‘You see someone who is getting as good as they can be,’ suggests Craig. ‘That is exciting. It’s unusual. A lot of directors have a big splash and then slide rapidly. It’s like he’s changed his attitude to filmmaking, and that’s a great thing as an artist to do… Great artist? Fucking hell! He should be paying me money for this!’

Turning his mind to Bond, Craig admits that ‘Quantum of Solace’ (2008) was a frustrating experience, not least because the Hollywood writers’ strike meant they ended up filming with an incomplete script. ‘We were fucked,’ he says. ‘We had the bare bones of a script and then there was the strike and there was nothing we could do. We couldn’t employ a writer to finish it. There was me trying to rewrite scenes – and a writer I am not. We were stuffed.’

In contrast, Craig says he could not be happier with the script of ‘Skyfall’, which he is filming now with Mendes until the end of next May. ‘I’m genuinely really excited because we’ve got a script. I think this one is better than “Casino Royale”. I really do. It’s a totally original story. There’s a long thought process that’s gone into it. I read it and it just works as a story.’

Craig believes that the fact that both he and Mendes are British, roughly the same age and share the same memories of growing up with Bond, has greatly helped the planning and execution of ‘Skyfall’.

‘Early on, we sat down and we just rabbited for hours about “Live and Let Die” or “From Russia With Love”, and talked about little scenes that we knew from them. That’s how we started talking about it. That’s what we have tried to instil in the script.’

A full interview with Daniel Craig, in which he talks about ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’, ‘Skyfall’ and more, will appear in the next issue of Time Out London, dated December 8-15 2011 and on shelves from Tuesday December 6 2011

..and it goes on and on on twitter, I am wondering, he is not already tgren ding with it. But I see it as purely positive so far. He gets almost 100% good votes for it, but like you say, its ridiculous, these chicks make such a splash.
