Mobbed by selfieseekers at pubs, Daniel drinks very fast
James Bond star Daniel Craig says that his level of fame has forced him to master binge drinking.
“I’ve got this window of opportunity in pubs of about 30 minutes,” the 50-year-old says, reports the Daily Star. “After that, things start happening and it’s not relaxing any more. I’ve got really good at drinking 18 pints in half an hour. I like to have a drink, and I love pubs and I love finding new pubs and places to socialise. But that has a limit on it now.”
Craig says that smartphones are to blame for ruining his nights out because he is constantly mobbed by fans asking him to pose for selfies, reports mirror.co.uk.
He has no problem with signing autographs all day long or for posing for the odd picture, says the star, but being photographed all night long in a bar “p****s” him off.
The actor says that people in the movie business all talk about the good old days when they could go to a bar and get so drunk that they’d fall over without worrying that someone was going to get pictures and videos of them.
Craig rues that he “can’t live a normal life” thanks to the fact that “everyone’s got a camera”.
I’ve got really good at drinking 18 pints in half an hour. I like to have a drink, and I love pubs and I love finding new pubs and places to socialise. But that has a limit on it now (because of the widespread fame).
