Daniel Craig has admitted having plastic surgery to fix injuries sustained on the set of the latest Bond film.
The star, 40, severed his fingertip and had eight stitches on his face after being accidentally kicked by a 'Quantum of Solace' co-star.
Craig, who was recently pictured sporting an arm sling, told Elle magazine: “It’s a stupid inconvenience because we had to stop filming. But they gave me an excellent plastic surgeon.”
The heartthrob also admitted having a crush on 007’s boss.
He said all men fancied M, played by Dame Judi Dench, 73, in the Bond films.
Craig said: “M’s gorgeous. All men have thought about her at least once in their lives.
“The great thing about Judi Dench is that she’s the matriarch of British film.
“She has an innate power about her. And yes, Bond needs a woman like M to contain his nonsense and say, ’Look, 007, you’ve been an idiot!’
“But they won’t sleep together. Not unless the cupboard gets very bare in terms of storylines.”
The actor said: “I think it’s true that narcissists, thrill-seekers, and liars breed and survive in the gene pool because some women find them attractive.
“But I think James Bond has changed. He’s not a shallow brute.
“I wanted some fallibility. It’s no good if Bond is a cocktail-swigging sexist pig with no interior struggle. Bond is often upset and I wanted to bring that out.”
The actor, whose long-term partner is film producer Satsuki Mitchell, added: “I won’t play Bond forever. But I’d like to think I’ve added something to the lineage of how the man has changed.”
