'James Bond' star Daniel Craig is appalled by the recent rumours of a "curse" on the set of forthcoming 007 movie 'Quantum of Solace' - dismissing the idea as "offensive".
The production of the film was marred by accidents, including a crash which left stuntman Aris Comninos critically injured and an Aston Martin sportscar being accidentally driven into a lake.
Craig also suffered his fair share of injuries - the actor was rushed to hospital after slicing off the top of his finger; he suffered a bruised eye and fractured arm, as well as requiring eight stitches to repair a gash in his face caused during a fight scene.
All of the disasters led internet gossips to speculate about a film curse, but Craig insists the mere suggestion of it is ridiculous.
He tells Britain's GQ magazine: "The thing about the Curse of Bond thing is that it's offensive, really. Let's be honest.
"There's a risk in everything we do and we literally have the best people in the world who do this and every precaution is taken to minimise the risk. But there is a risk. And there's no blame. Taking my finger as part of a 'curse', that's offensive. This is what we do but it gets magnified and taken out of context."
