Actor Daniel Craig has reportedly said that politicians try to look cool but stab in the back.

In an interview to Men's Journal, the James Bond star said: "Politicians too often try to cosy up to celebrities hoping to be seen cool. Tony Blair started it more than anybody's ever done."

According to the Herald Sun, Craig told the Men's Journal that, "Politicians are s---eads. That's how they become politicians, even the good ones. We're actors, we're artistes, we're very nice to each other. They'll turn around and stab you in the f---ing back."

Criag doesn't have his expertise on politics unlike his fellow actor Gorge Clooney. He said, "George has his finger on the political pulse, and he's one of those guys who can get up and talk, and I don't have that. If someone shoves a microphone in your face and says, 'Explain yourself,' you have to have a 100 per cent understanding of why you're doing it, and unless you're 100 per cent, don't f---ing do it, leave it alone, let your work speak for itself."

"I'm not a politician - you don't need to know everything about me, you don't get to see my tax returns," he continued. "If you sell yourself and give yourself up and share your innermost secrets, don't be surprised when that bites you in the end," he added.

Craig, 43, began his career with the Bond movie "Casino Royale" in 2006. He played memorable roles in movies like "Defiance", "Cowboy and Aliens", and "The Adventures of Tintin". His latest film "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" is running successfully in theatres.
