Daniel Craig: I'm entitled to quit Bond

Daniel Craig has "the right" to quit the James Bond franchise.

The 47-year-old actor revealed he's not contracted to stay on for the next installment of the spy-action movie series and he's allowed to decide whether he stays or moves on after 'Spectre'.

Daniel - who first played Bond in 'Casino Royale' in 2006 - said: "I have the right to change my mind any time I want. And sometimes I say things, like I did when I was asked two days after I just finished shooting for eight months, 'Would I do another one?'"

Despite the furor he caused when he admitted he'd rather "slash" his wrists than play 007 again, the hunk explained it's how he felt at the time and he doesn't "care" about the backlash.

He reflected: "That's what was on my mind, and I said what was on my mind. It's the way I've always spoken. But as I said, I reserve the right to change my mind.

"I don't go on the internet. I don't listen to gossip and I don't really care. This is my job and all I am thinking of."
