Craig shuts down 'excruciating' interview

NZH

DANIEL Craig will quickly become a difficult interview subject if you ask him to perform.

Just ask Alison Stephenson. She asked him to perform a "gun draw" in 2012, and he replied: "I'd rather suck pus out of an abscess."

So one would think it's best to avoid this line of questioning, right? Not so for UK showbiz reporter Sarah Powell who, in an excruciatingly awkward interview, repeatedly asked him to pout.

Facing the barrage of 'pout' requests, Craig starts by saying he doesn't know what she's talking about, to giving a blunt "no", to finally stating "I think it's time to move on."

Powell also asked why he didn't strip off: "There's no swimwear, there's no tearing of the shirt off. What happened, why haven't you got your kit off?"

"It just didn't happen" he replied.

She then asked if Bond had gone "shy" and he replied: "He's going shy now."

The interview took a turn for the surreal when she attempted to gift Craig a giant car sticker with his wife Rachel Weisz's name on it, before the clip abruptly cut out catching the morning studio hosts unawares.

This is a guy who recently said he'd rather "slash his wrists" than perform as Bond again. Clearly the reporter didn't do her research. Either that or she had a brief aneurysm.
