Mobbed by selfie­seek­ers at pubs, Daniel drinks very fast

Hindustan Times (Gurugram) - City - - ENTERTAINMENT -

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).
