God, Daniel Craig is furiously hot. Almost unprecedented. His chiseled visage and gargoyle glare add up to a ton of palpable sexuality, and in these ten hot moments, he proves why he was sexy and savvy enough to redefine the image of James Bond forever.
10. Craig is young and chivalrous in A Kid In King Arthur’s Court
The movie may as well be called Medieval Times with Thomas Ian Nicholas and Kate Winslet, but Craig is smokin’ with his chainmail and shaggy blondness. I love a man who can joust. Sexually.
9. Flashbacks of a Fool is giving me flashbacks of pornography
Daniel Craig also produced this little-seen 2008 effort, but here’s what he achieved in one glorious still: After years of “sideboob” from Hollywood’s slinky ladies in low-cut tops, Craig just innovated “side-abs,” where we can see a perfectly chiseled profile of his torso. It’s a breakthrough!
8. Craig leaves the today show looking dapper (and gay-cute) as hell.
Yes, denim! Yes, that complicated scarf!
7. Cowboys and Aliens gives you Craig at his craggiest.
It’s an awful movie with the drippiest Harrison Ford performance since, God, Regarding Henry? But Daniel Craig in tight-fitting cowboy gear is surely a victory for any of us with a good ol’ American Brokeback Mountain fantasy.
6. We have reason to be jealous of Gemma Arterton’s back in Quantum of Solace.
Quantum of Solace isn’t an essential 007 caper, but this sex scene sure is: Gemma Arterton, your Single White Female haircut and naughty aloofness should be given Nobel prizes.
