Daniel Craig says he is wrong to leave behind an inheritance, and it is for this reason that the James Bond star plans to give away his money or spend them while he is alive.
Craig said this in an interview with the UK’s Candis Magazine. “I don’t want to leave great sums to the next generation. I think inheritance is quite distasteful,” he said. “My philosophy is get rid of it or give it away before you go.”
He further added, “Isn’t there an old adage that if you die a rich person, you’ve failed?”
He also talked about how steel industry magnate Andrew Carnegie gave away billions prior to his death in 1919. Craig said that those charitable act(s) showed “how rich he was because I’ll bet he kept some of it too.”
Craig, who allegedly worth $160 million, has a 29-year-old daughter with an ex-wife, and a three-year-old daughter with his current wife, Rachel Weisz.
