Live to the fullest and die without a penny. This is the plan Daniel Craig.
The actor of Knives Out, 53, has revealed that he does not intend to leave any legacy to his children because it finds the practice “in bad taste“:
“I don’t want to leave large sums to the next generation. I think inheritance is pretty bad taste“, recently told a Candis Magazine. “My philosophy is to get rid of it or give it all away before you die. “
He added: “Isn’t there an old saying that if you die rich, you have failed?“
Daniel continued, explaining: “I think Andrew Carnegie [un industriale americano] gave away what would be around 11 billion dollars in today’s money, which shows how rich he was because I bet he kept some too. “

We did not understand this reasoning well, but we hope that the children of the actor understood it.
Craig has one 29 year old daughter, Ella, with his ex-wife Fiona Loudon, with whom he was married from 1992 to 1994. The British actor then married Rachel Weisz in 2011 and welcomed theirs daughter in 2018.
Rachel Weisz, 51, also has a 15-year-old son, Henry, with director Darren Aronofsky.
However, it appears that none of Craig’s – or Weisz’s – children will be able to rely on heritage of the father, which reportedly should amount to 160 million dollars, if he can throw all his money away before he dies.
On September 30th we will be able to see at the cinema for the last time Daniel Craig take on the iconic shoes of James Bond in the new movie of the franchise No Time To Die.
Having previously stated that he would have preferred “cut his wrists“rather than wearing the tuxedo again, the 53-year-old clearly confirmed (and a little melodramatically) that he has no intention of getting back behind the wheel of the Aston Martin. 5 movies gone out between 2006 and 2021 – the accounts are easy: 15 years of James Bond is enough for anyone.
So the question everyone asks is: who will be the next James Bond?
From Tom Hardy to Henry Cavill, passing through Harry Styles And Regé-Jean Page, there are a lot of candidates who may soon order one Vodka Martini; agitated, not stirred.
Who I am? We have collected them in this video. Go with the play and discover them all:
