Daniel Craig has said that he won’t be passing his money on to his children, claiming that inheritance is “distasteful”.

The Bond actor, who has children with his ex-wife Fiona Loudon and current wife Rachel Weisz, opened up in a new interview with Candis magazine.

The 007 star, who is worth an estimated $160 million (£116 million), said: “Isn’t there an old adage that if you die a rich person, you’ve failed?Advertisementnull

“I think Andrew Carnegie gave away what in today’s money would be about 11 billion dollars, which shows how rich he was because I’ll bet he kept some of it, too.”

Craig added: “I don’t want to leave great sums to the next generation. I think inheritance is quite distasteful. My philosophy is get rid of it or give it away before you go.”

His comments come as fans await the release of Craig’s final Bond film No Time To Die, which is currently set for release on September 30 having been pushed back multiple times due to the pandemic
