Daniel Craig likes being an actor because he can "dress up and show off".
The 'Quantum of Solace' star pursued a career which gave him the opportunity to flaunt his talents and wear outrageous clothes.
He said: "You get into acting for the chase. It's dressing up and showing off. Let's be honest about it, at its basic level."
Even though Craig admits he is an exhibitionist, he insists he will never become self-obsessed or arrogant about his talent.
He explained: "When you start believing in all that, you're in deep trouble. People talk to me about, 'How's it feel being sort of looked at as being sexy?' And I'm going, 'I have no idea what you're talking about.' That sounds like false humility, but it's not. Anybody who starts to think they're sexy immediately becomes unsexy."
Craig - who reprises his role as ruthless British spy James Bond for a second time in 'Quantum of Solace' - also confessed he has been involved in several physical altercations during nights out.
He added to USA Today newspaper: "Bar-room brawls? I've done maybe two or three, and I've never been particularly successful at them. They're always very quick, and then suddenly you're outside and you don't know quite how you got there."
