As with his Bond Announcement Day fiasco, he's feeling the gnawing fangs of the daft press all over again. First the life-jacket. Now the swim trunks. What is it with DC and water oriented options?
The UK press just know that Daniel sells papers at the moment - hopefully he can just get used to it.
I've had the same thought going round my head for quite some time now.
There's been loads of articles about him in the tabloids just in the past 7 days - one silly one about his gilrfriend always looking miserable because she is worried he's going to run off with someone else because he's so good looking......
Now THAT is a worrisome thought, indeed.
I know I shouldn't look at these things - but I worry that as he's obviously sensitive it'll put him off being James Bond and wish to be anonymous again!
DC seems a level-headed sort, so while this will no doubt piss him off, I'm sure he'll do the smart thing -- ie., chalk it up to becoming a marketable commodity and use his newfound power to make the smaller art films and other projects he prefers. It's exactly what PB did and there's no reason DC can't do it as well if not better. If he's smart, he won't waste his time worrying about this stuff and just get on with his work, just as he's done since Eon announced his casting.
PB was a C-list actor before Bond and now he can produce his own films and do interesting work instead of drudgy-for-the-paycheck crap.
And if the UK media drives DC crazy, he can afford to move to a secluded villa in the South of France to hide from it all!
