Ahead of his fourth turn as James Bond in Spectre later this year, Daniel Craig has spoken about performing his own stunts and how he copes with the international stardom he now enjoys.

The 47 year old actor, who has found global fame with his three well-received performances as 007, was speaking to DuJour magazine that he still sometimes struggles with the public attention that his position has brought over the last ten years.

“Bars are hard, but that’s more because of mobile phones,” Craig admitted. What annoys him most is that he wishes people would simply approach him and ask for photographs, instead of surreptitiously snapping away from a distance.

He recalled an occasion on which he woke up on a flight with somebody standing over him filming him sleeping. “That happens to me so often, you wake up to a phone in your face and you go, 'What the f***!'”

However, Craig is perfectly prepared to do celebrity duties the old-fashioned way. “I’ll do autographs all day long, and I’ll even do a picture at the end of an evening. But if I’m being photographed all night long in a bar, that pisses me off… But people don’t see it as a problem. Maybe I’m delusional.”

One of the biggest things he misses is being able to get drunk in public! “I mourn it slightly. I like to have a drink, and I love pubs and I love finding new pubs and places to socialize. But that has a limit on it now.”

Craig, who is married to Rachel Weisz, also spoke about performing stunts in Spectre. “You always get nervous a bit,” he said. “There was this part where I’d f***ed up my knee halfway through shooting, which curtailed a lot of the serious action stuff. I’m so f***ing gung ho about wanting to do every stunt I can, I had to ask, ‘What can I do, and what can’t I do?’”

Spectre is released in cinemas on October 26th.
