SPY WHO LOVES TO BUY ART
By Cameron Robertson
JAMES Bond star Daniel Craig plans to spend his pay packet from the new 007
blockbuster buying paintings.
The actor, who was criticised for wearing a life jacket when he was unveiled as
Bond, is reportedly pocketing £1.5 million for Casino Royale.
Art-lover Craig, 38, confessed he couldn't wait to snap up some rare pictures when
he cashes in on Bond's global fame.
He said: "I'd love to get into buying art, though I haven't started making money yet."
But the craggy-faced blonde actor has not proved a popular choice as 007 in the
latest £60 million film due out in November.
Angry fans set up a website which asked: "Is the new Bond a sissy?"
Craig has revealed how he conquered a fear of heights during filming but was
forced to use stunt doubles.
Despite his new-found worldwide fame, Craig also hinted he will walk away from
007 after another two movies.
