Daniel Craig slammed for 'slash his wrists' comment

ELLEN Pompeo says Daniel Craig needs a reality check.

The 'Grey's Anatomy' actress slammed the British actor after he joked that he would "rather slash his wrists" than do another James Bond movie.

Ellen, 45, tweeted a link to an article with Daniel's comments and wrote: "This dude needs a reality check."

The 'SPECTRE' star, 47, has portrayed the legendary MI6 agent for nearly a decade but admitted he can't wait to hang up his gun and luxury tuxedo.

Asked if he wants to play the leading role again, Craig told Time Out magazine: "I'd rather break this glass and slash my wrists. No, not at the moment. Not at all."

He added: "That's fine. I'm over it at the moment. We're done. All I want to do is move on."

However, the handsome star, who became the highest-paid actor to play James Bond after he was handed a reported $10.7 million for 'Skyfall', has said he would consider signing up for the next movie "for the money."

Meanwhile, although Craig is adamant he's ready to quit the franchise after the upcoming movie, he recently claimed he'd signed a contract that may require him to make another.

He said: "It's getting harder. But such is life. I'll keep going as long as I'm physically able. I'm contracted for one more - but I'm not going to make predictions."
