James Bond actor Daniel Craig explained that he did not want to leave great sums to his children and why it should be like this.
The Bond actor, who has children with his ex-wife Fiona Loudon and his current wife Rachel Weisz, explained why he does not want to leave his fortune to his children in a new interview with Candis magazine.
The 007 star, who is worth an estimated $160 million, said:
“Isn’t there an old adage that if you die a rich person, you’ve failed? 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.”
“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.”
It arrived while fans were waiting for the release of Craig’s latest Bond movie, No Time to Die, which is currently set to hit theaters on September 30 as it has been delayed multiple times due to the pandemic.
