The Take That star has heaped praise on the James Bond actor, saying he's got some rare qualities that few entertainment stars can boast.
He told the Daily Star newspaper: ''He's got that look about him. He's just super-cool.
''And he never used to be as big, did he? I'm sure it's just weight training but he's a big guy now.''
Gary also said the 'Spectre' actor is someone who audiences struggle to peel their eyes away from.
He explained: ''He used to be in the pub my dad drinks in. He was a little boy, he was like five. He's one of those people you want to look at a lot.''
Gary's remarks come shortly after fellow pop star Sam Smith - who's also penned the tune to the new movie - revealed Daniel isn't his favourite incarnation of Bond.
He told NME magazine: ''When I went back and watched them all, I realised that it's [Sean] Connery and [Roger] Moore I love the most.
''I love how classy and clean-cut they are. I'd like the next Bond to be more of a return to that.''
