Daniel Craig kept taking the blame whenever Naomie Harris messed up a scene in 'Skyfall'.
The pair hit it off while filming the latest instalment in the James Bond franchise and Naomie explained Daniel - who plays the suave spy - was a gentleman in real life too as he tried to hide her mistakes.
She said: "Daniel is really hot but he's also a nice guy. Whenever I would mess up, he'd say 'Actually that was me, I didn't hit my mark.'"
Naomie loved working on the movie and credits it with improving her driving skills after she took lessons for a particular scene.
She said: "I can parallel park and do three point turns. Before, I had six car accidents. I'm much better now."
Naomi, 36, also enjoyed how physical the role is although she admitted to still hating the gym.
She said: "For someone who doesn't do any exercise. Having to do physical work for two months, five days a week of combat training and running, was hell. Once I got past the pain I started to love the benefits but I still hate exercising."
