Daniel Craig won't be giving his kids any inheritance

Daniel Craig won't be leaving his fortune to his kids, insisting he plans to live life large and then leave what's left to charity.

The James Bond star, who has an estimated $145 million (£125 million) fortune, won't be giving his children hand-outs, and instead claimed his philosophy is to "get rid of it or give it away before you go".

The 52-year-old, who has a 28-year-old daughter from his marriage to ex-wife Fiona Loudon and a young child with his current partner, actress Rachel Weisz, told Saga magazine that he thinks leaving money to family members is in bad taste.

"I don't want to leave great sums to the next generation. I think inheritance is quite distasteful," he shared. “My philosophy is to get rid of it or give it away before you go. Isn’t there an old adage that if you die a rich person then you’ve failed?”

His Bond cash will dry up this year following five 007 adventures after telling fans No Time to Die, which hits cinemas at the end of the year after the original release date was postponed over the coronavirus outbreak, will be his last movie for the franchise.

During a recent appearance on Saturday Night Live, Craig, who also played Ian Fleming's beloved secret agent in Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre, said, "This next James Bond film is going to be my last but it's gonna be one of the best."
