First of all, I feel utterly ridiculous for having for a celeb crush. I'm 43 fucking years old, for Christ's sake, not 13. At least Daniel Craig isn't young enough to be my son. On the other hand, he's basically my age and I'm not sure if that's any better.
Years ago, when they first announced that he would be the new James Bond, I scoffed, "Him?! More like Blond. James Blond." When had there ever been a blond Bond? I grew up on Roger Moore's Bond and stopped watching when Timothy Dalton took over. And Pierce Brosnan? Yeah...no. (I like Brosnan, just not as Bond and I don't care what Mindy Kaling says in her book.) So yeah, I never watched the Craig-as-Bond films.
Then I saw him in the English version of Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and thought, "Wow, this guy's a pretty good actor. And he's not bad looking, either." My husband agreed, although maybe not to that last part. We watched more of Craig's work and were impressed.
When I saw the trailer for Skyfall, I was pretty psyched. In order to prepare seeing it, I watched Casino Royale, Craig's first Bond film, and when I saw this, I realized I had never before come across a man whose [insert NOUN here] I wanted to [insert VERB here] (i.e., zits; pop). But then I came across this. Welcome to reality.
So maybe it isn't Daniel Craig that I have a crush on but Bond. James Bond. But ok, yeah, I still think Daniel Craig is hot. I just hope he doesn't double dip. Or at least doesn't share his bag of chips with anyone else if he does.
