Actor loathes going to the gym five times a week


Daniel Craig admits he has to work hard to keep toned.

The James Bond star, 40, had to beef-up for the role of 007 and now maintains his beefcake physique.

‘I go to the gym fives days a week for 40 minutes at a time,’ he tells Weekend magazine.

‘I hate it but I have to do it, because apart from anything, James Bond has to look physically imposing.’

Daniel is the 6th actor to play James Bond and has starred as the spy in two films – Casino Royale and Quantum Of Solace.

‘I was big for Casino – that wasn’t a mistake,’ Daniel explains. ‘It was a definite statement. This guy, when he takes his shirt off, should look like he could kill someone.’
