Daniel Craig Talks Bond's Homosexual Past, Charms Our Pants Off

When Daniel Craig confidently strides into the hotel room at the Mandarin Oriental Miami to meet with us, he is wearing a perfectly tailored suit with a pocket square, not unlike how James Bond dresses in Skyfall, the latest installment opening Friday.

He adjusts his watchband in a way that hints it may have slipped out of place while snapping the neck of a would-be assassin out in the hallway. The watch is an Omega, the same kind James Bond wears, and though there's probably some sort of contractual obligation here, the watch looks just right on Daniel Craig. Everything about him looks right. His eyes are bluer than they are on film and when he takes a seat across the table from us, there seems something so cool about sitting that we silently vow to never stand again.
