Daniel Craig, 52, Does GQ AND Dolly Parton, 75, Says She Wants To Do Playboy Again

Daniel Craig, 52, Does GQ AND Dolly Parton, 75, Says She Wants To Do Playboy Again

He said he never wanted to play the role again, however a reported $US25 million cheque has convinced Daniel Craig to play James Bond for one final time in the (just coronavirus delayed) No Time To Die.

Ahead of the film’s release, the 52-year-old has got the gear off for the latest cover of UK GQ magazine alongside the cover line: “His last Bond. His last interview.”

In the accompanying interview he admitted that 2015’s Spectre was supposed to be his last outing as the super spy, primarily because he didn’t believe his body could no longer handle the physical rigours of the role.

“I was never going to do one again,” Craig reveals in the accompanying interview. “I was like, ‘Is this work really genuinely worth this, to go through this, this whole thing?’ And I didn’t feel… I felt physically really low.

“So the prospect of doing another movie was just, like, off the cards. And that is why it has been five years,” he said.

In other magazine news, the indomitable Dolly Parton has revealed she wants to do Playboy magazine.

The 74-year-old first appeared on the famous men’s magazine cover way back in 1978 and said she’d like to reprise the cover for her 75th next year.

Parton telling Nine’s 60 Minutes: “I thought it would be such a hoot is they’ll go for it; I don’t know if they will.”

The famed US magazine has worked hard in recent times – well, certainly since founding father Hugh Hefner’s death in 2017 – to reinvent itself as a sophisticated read rather than a nudey magazine.

If Parton made the cover a second time (she had her first cover at 32), she would become the oldest woman to do so, after Jane Seymour, who posed at 67 in 2018.
