Who knew that James Bond was such a stingy daddy? So THAT’S why Daniel Craig wanted to stop making 007 movies. He was trying to soften the blow and make it easier for his children for when he chops them from his will and instead leaves all of his shaken not stirred monies to charities (like, The Association of Extra Hot Daddies).
According to the The Daily Mail, Daniel is the latest celebrity to graduate from the Leona Helmsley School of Hard Knocks, earning a Master’s degree in IDGAF––by claiming that he will not be leaving any money to his two daughters: one from a previous marriage, and the two-year-old he shares with his wife, Rachel Weisz. However, unlike Leona, Daniel is not leaving everything to the dog. In fact, he doesn’t even want to have a dime to his name by the time he’s gone. Daniel said this to Saga Magazine:
‘I don’t want to leave great sums to the next generation… I think inheritance is quite distasteful. My philosophy is to get rid of it or give it away before you go.’
There’s a lot to be said about rich people who don’t leave their millions to their kids after they croak. But “inheritance is distasteful” is the classiest, most British excuse I’ve ever heard. And I can absolutely get behind it. Apparently, Daniel is currently worth about $150 million––not including what he’ll net from the upcoming Knives Out sequel, or the latest Bond movie, No Time to Die. And what a title! Daniel is going to have to put those words to good use soon because there is absolutely no time to die with all the shopping he’s got to do.
In the end, I’m pretty sure the kids will be alright––especially the two-year-old. She’s still got Rachel Weisz money to look forward to. And as for the older one, if she’s really hard up and needs some coin, I’m sure she can get her hands on a sweaty towel or a pair of those iconic James Bond Speedos from her dad’s closet and sell it on eBay.
