I love this business, and I don’t mind talking to journalists  “But I just grew up in an era when, if you were trying to be an artist, you didn’t look for approval You didn’t look for likes. You just did your thing. And this? This is what I do.  “It’s social media There is a constant looking, in life, for approval, and it really jars with me.  “But I’m a 51-year-old man Nobody listens to me. Or they will stop listening to me sooner rather than later, so it doesn’t really matter what I think   “But I grew up when punk rock was on the scene. You want approval? That’s anathema to me It doesn’t make any sense to me, in art. It’s anti-art. It’s anti-creativity.”  Craig, who is married to fellow Hollywood star Rachel Weisz, also admitted he makes a conscious effort to keep his private life as private as possible   The actor added: “Who am I personally?   “It has nothing to do with anybody, except for the people in my life ”  Craig will be back on screen as 007 in April for the new film, No Time To Die, his fifth and final outing as Bond   The movie co-stars Lea Seydoux, Rami Malek and Ralph Fiennes.  He first starred in the franchise in 2006 hit Casino Royale   Craig added: “We’re trying to make the best Bond movie we can.”
