    Washington (ANI): Daniel Craig says that he does not like being projected by the media as a moody actor because this image almost cost him James Bond's role in Casino Royale. The British actor says that film bosses at MGM Studios had reservations about hiring him after the press labelled him a "difficult" actor. Craig says that the filmmakers were afraid that he would refuse to fulfil promotional duties for Casino Royale.

    "When I was making Bond (Casino Royale), the film company were nervous that I wasn't going to any press, as that's my reputation for some reason," Contactmusic quoted him as saying. The 39-year-old star, who is reprising Bond"s role in Quantum Of Solace, insists that he is a friendly person. "I don't think that's true, it's just lazy journalism; they want to paint me as someone difficult. I think I'm quite nice, but maybe I'm delusional. There is no point making Bond if you're not going to sell it," he said.
