It turns out that 007 is a big admirer of Thanksgiving.
After becoming a U.S. citizen in 2019, James Bond star Daniel Craig disclosed that his favorite holiday is Thanksgiving.
The 54-year-old followed in the footsteps of his British wife Rachel Weisz, who became a U.S. citizen in 2011 – the same year the couple married.
Craig was questioned on Monday’s “Late Show With Stephen Colbert” if he understood Thanksgiving.
“I do understand Thanksgiving. According to my understanding, it’s about giving gratitude,” he said.
Colbert then asked the “Glass Onion” actor how long he had observed the yearly event at home.
“I have, and we celebrate that fact. In reality, I have American friends, so I’ve been celebrating for quite some time,” he replied before Colbert pressed him for further information.
“I believe that is my favorite holiday,” he continued.
In a 2019 interview with People, the actor stated, “Everyone in this nation is an immigrant. This is the nation’s foundation. It cannot be forgotten.
“We cannot simply disregard it… However, it is complex, requires thought, and requires intelligent people to think about it instead than splitting people along party lines and animosity that builds up. It must be discussed… because that is difficult.”
“Doing good things is difficult. He said, “I am quite proud to be a part of this, to hold an American passport, and to name myself an immigrant in this nation.”
I’m happy to be a part of the incredible historical time that gave birth to this country.
In 2011, the actor married the Oscar-winning actress Weisz. Together, they have a four-year-old daughter.
Henry is Weisz’s kid from a prior relationship with ex-boyfriend Darren Aronofsky. Craig is currently the father to Ella, whom he shares with his ex-wife Fiona Loudon.
