Craig: I will need surgery after Bond films

James Bond star Daniel Craig is convinced the new 007 films are so dangerous, he will need plastic surgery within five years.

The British actor sustained numerous injuries while filming the forthcoming 'Quantum of Solace' - he was rushed to hospital in June after hurting himself on-set in South America, and was recently seen nursing a bruised eye and fractured arm.

Craig admits the dangerous stunts are all part of playing the superspy - but fears it won't be long before he will need to have plastic surgery to rectify his injuries.

"It's what happens when you do something like this," he said. "I got tagged in a fight sequence and needed eight stitches. Plastic surgery? Give it five years."
