Daniel Craig Once Roughed Up a Guy Who Hit on His Girlfriend

Don’t expect to hit on Bond’s lady and get away with it.

Although Daniel Craig may seem cool, calm and collected, but the actor will stand up to creeps who lurk around his dates. “[S]omeone looking at my girl in the wrong way always got me going. I still get jealous, but not how I used to,” he tells The Sun.

Although he’s been married to Rachel Weisz since 2011, Craig says back in his dating days he once had to stand up to a guy who pinched his girlfriend’s behind.

“I was in a bar in France once and this guy pinched my girl’s ass, and I flew across the room and kind of lifted the guy up,” he recalled. “These days I’m much more happy to have a quiet word with someone.”

The actor assured the publication he’s not like the secret agent he plays on the big screen. “I play a tough guy, but that’s not me. I’ve always been good at avoiding fights,” he said.

Unfortunately, the Spectre star was unable to avoid an awkward interview recently. A reporter for ITV really, really wanted him to do the ‘Daniel Craig pout.’

Watch the cringe-worthy interview below:

Wonder if he had a ‘quiet word’ with her after the interview was over.
