Daniel Craig Shuts Down Interviewer Who Called Monica Bellucci an “Older Woman”

Daniel Craig took a stand against one of Hollywood’s most egregious double standards while promoting the latest James Bond film, Spectre.

In an interview with The Red Bulletin (the official publication of Red Bull), Craig was asked about Bond “succumbing to the charms of an older woman” in Spectre. Craig’s co-star Monica Bellucci, at 51, is four years older than Craig.

Craig had the perfect response to the cringe-worthy question. “I think you mean the charms of a woman his own age,” he said. “We’re talking about Monica Bellucci, for heaven’s sake. When someone like that wants to be a Bond girl, you just count yourself lucky!”

This isn’t the first time Craig has flown the feminist flag. In March, he dressed in drag to film a video about gender inequality in honor of International Women’s Day. Watch it here, and read Craig’s full interview with The Red Bulletin here.

Spectre is scheduled to be released on Nov. 6.

  1. Terrible double standard. Older woman? Really? Monica is a beautiful woman, truly beautiful but just because she is past 30years, she is not desirable? Hollywood has to stop this their obsession with young ladies, the viewers has to stop it.
