Daniel Craig says he won't leave his fortune to his children when he dies.

The James Bond star, 52, has said that he's got other plans for his money.

The popular actor is said to have made a rather large sum of money thanks to the Bond franchise, and is rumoured to be worth over Sh15 billion (£125 million).

Despite his hefty earnings, the proud father-of-two has no intention of leaving it to his next of kin.

Instead, he hopes to blow it all before the day eventually comes when he pops his clogs.

The 52-year-old star also welcomed a baby girl with partner Rachel Weisz in 2018.

Speaking to Saga Magazine, the Bond star confessed: "I don’t want to leave great sums to the next generation."

"I think inheritance is quite distasteful. My philosophy is to get rid of it or give it away before you go."

The surprising admission comes after the actors insisted that the next James Bond film will be Daniel last.

In 2015, after filming Spectre, Daniel declared he would rather “slash my wrists” than reprise the role of 007.

He then sheepishly retracted the comment when he signed up for another movie.

But now he reckons Bond is set to peak with No Time To Die... thanks to Fleabag’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

And with that in mind, Daniel is planning to go out on a high.

"This James Bond film is going to be my last," he claims - again.

"But it’s one of the best, because we got Phoebe Waller-Bridge from Fleabag to come help with some of the dialogue.

"It’s not going to be that different - every so often I will turn to the camera and I will say, ‘The name’s Bond, James Bond. Is it bad that I fancy the Pope?”’

The actor looked comfortable playing comedic roles on US sketch show Saturday Night Live, after Bond’s release date was pushed back until November due to the global spread of coronavirus.

He played the spy getting rowdy at a casino craps table, and joked: "Everyone assumes that because I play James Bond I’m a suave and sophisticated guy... and I am.

"I’m James Bond - I’m not a nerd."
