Maybe you know Daniel Craig as James Bond from his five films… maybe you know him from the ‘Ladies and Gentlemen, The Weeknd’ twitter account … but his kids will know him as the guy that wouldn’t set them up with a trust fund.
Now, listen, we all know plenty of shitheel legacy assholes… and we probably hate all of them… but, deep down we all kinda want that generational money that means we can huck more dice without the worry of grades or expectations because our future is already set.
Craig recently said his kids are going to have to pay their own way.
“I don’t want to leave great sums to the next generation. I think inheritance is quite distasteful,” he told something called Candis Magazine. “My philosophy is get rid of it or give it away before you go.”
Get rid of it?
Give it away?
Daniel… venmo me.
Craig, is worth a hell of a lot of money — seriously, a reported net worth of $160 million — and he has a few kids out there. His oldest is a 29-year-old daughter (Ella) that he had with his ex-wife Fiona Loudon. The British actor also wed Rachel Weisz in 2011, and they had a daughter together in 2018.
Not sure if this counts, but he is also giving a middle finger to Weisz’s 15-year-old son, Henry, whom she had with director Darren Aronofsky.
Again, most of Craig’s bankroll has come from his turn as James Bond. It has been reported that he will make his final appearance in the role for “No Time to Die,” slated to hit theaters in October.
He got $25 million for that film… not that it matters to anyone but him.
