British actor, Daniel Craig, 53, has said he will not leave his children a fortune of sums made from his acting career as he finds the idea of inheritance “distasteful”.
The James Bond star previously referred to the idea of inheritance as “distasteful” in an interview last year, insisting that he would not leave his Hollywood riches to his children.
“I don’t want to leave great sums to the next generation,” he told Saga Magazine.
Craig has two daughters. The youngest, whom he had with his wife, the actor Rachel Weisz, was born in 2018. His eldest daughter, Ella, is from his previous marriage to Fiona Loudon.
Craig who has amassed a fortune over his acting career, portraying James Bond and appearing in other movies told Candis magazine that he plans on giving a lot of his money away rather than passing all of his money to his children.
“Isn’t there an old adage that if you d*e a rich person, you’ve failed? I think Andrew Carnegie gave away what in today’s money would be about 11 billion dollars, which shows how rich he was because I’ll bet he kept some of it too.
But I don’t want to leave great sums to the next generation. I think inheritance is quite distasteful. My philosophy is: get rid of it or give it away before you go.”
