Daniel Craig, or James Bond as he is famously known has said that his eight-figure Hollywood paychecks won’t go to his children. The millionaire actor who received $25 million for his role as James Bond in the “No Time to Die” said he won’t share his fortune with his kids.
Craig had reportedly made $100 million to make an appearance in the sequels of “Knives Out”. According to Candis Magazine, the 53-year-old actor explained his philosophy on inheritance saying that he won’t be leaving many bucks to his children by the time he dies.
“Isn’t there an old adage that if you die a rich person, you’ve failed?” Craig said in the interview, according to the Times of London. “I think Andrew Carnegie gave away what in today’s money would be about $11 billion, which shows how rich he was because I’ll bet he kept some of it, too.”
Craig argued that it’s “distasteful” to leave his kids with this exorbitant amount of money. The millionaire actor has two children, a 29-year-old daughter, and a 2-year-old daughter. Meanwhile, his wife, Rachel Weisz who also happens to be an actor has a teenage son.
