Daniel Craig believes he has "lost touch with reality" since he began playing James Bond
Daniel Craig has "lost touch with reality" since he began playing James Bond.
The actor - who reprises his role as the British spy in upcoming movie 'Quantum of Solace' - has struggled to cope with the intense interest in his private life since accepting the part in 2005.
He said: "By doing Bond I've lost touch with reality quite a lot. I've become a bit of a commodity and I've got security guys around me most of the time."
Daniel - who is dating American film producer Satsuki Mitchell -insists those closest to him keep him grounded and don't allow him to let fame go to his head.
He added to the Telegraph magazine: "Fortunately, I've got a great family and really close friends and they give me a hard time. But it's something I encourage them to do, because otherwise I'd disappear up my own a**e! I mean, for six months of the year, six days a week, all you're doing is Bond, all you're talking about is Bond. For nearly three months before that, you're doing pre-production on Bond, and when the movie comes out you're promoting Bond."
