Daniel Craig has been speaking his mind a lot lately, and the sharp-tongued actor recently took aim at politicians, who he branded as “sh*theads,” in the latest issue of Men’s Journal.
“Politicians are sh*theads,” Craig declared. “That’s how they become politicians, even the good ones. We’re actors, we’re artists, we’re very nice to each other. They’ll turn around and stab you in the f*cking back.”
Although Craig doesn’t have a soft spot in his heart for politicians, he does offer up a name he’d like to see more of in the political sphere: George Clooney. “George has his finger on the political pulse, and he’s one of those guys who can get up and talk, and I don’t have that,” he said. “If someone shoves a microphone in your face and says, ‘Explain yourself,’ you have to have a 100 percent understanding of why you’re doing it, and unless you’re 100 percent, don’t f*cking do it, leave it alone, let your work speak for itself.”
