“Of all the half-baked trends and fads excreted by the diet industry, ‘clean eating’

“My jolly on the high seas with Ewan McGregor was
like National Lampoon meets Captain Pugwash,” says Craig of this month’s cover shoot. “It involved cigars, golf balls, distress flares, fishing tackle and a frozen octopus.

Esquire covers include Idris Elba, Paul McCartney
and Sean Penn.
