He may have just signed up for another two 007 movies but Daniel Craig admitted on Friday night he prefers to take the backseat when it comes to Bond’s daring stunts. The 44-year-old actor was appearing on the Jimmy Kimmel show to promote his new film Skyfall, out in theaters now.

Wearing a black suit and skinny tie, the buff Brit also stopped to signed autographs for fans after his interview in Hollywood.

Daniel told the late night TV host: ‘I don’t do all my stunts—I’d be lying if I said that. But I like the fact that occasionally that you’ll see on screen that it’s my face and it’s me.

Daniel added: ‘And I think audiences hopefully appreciate that. At least, I really hope they do.’

Car lover Craig also talked about the thrill of getting to drive the iconic Aston Martin DB5 but admitted he prefers to be driven by the profession on-set stunt drivers than handle the automobiles himself.

‘On the movie I get taught to drive by these really great drivers,’ he said. ‘Every time we do one I drive a bit, spin it around a bit but the biggest thrill is having a really good driver take you on a course.’
