British Actor Daniel Craig’s Weakness for Jewish Food Revealed as Reason for Fuller Face
British actor Daniel Craig’s frequent visits to a kosher restaurant in London are the reason for his recent weight gain, the UK’s Daily Mail reported on Thursday.
After the 49-year-old Craig, best known for his role as British spy James Bond, came on stage to present an award at the British Academy Film Awards last week, viewers took to social media to comment on his fuller appearance. The Daily Mail said the extra pounds should be attributed to a kosher restaurant in London called Harry Morgan, where the actor regularly dines with his wife, Jewish actress Rachel Weisz.
A diner at Harry Morgan’s told the publication, “Daniel joked with me that the hardest thing about playing Bond isn’t the stunts or nookie scenes, it’s the fact he has to largely stick to a boring diet of health food. But he must have a gap in his diary at the moment as he’s just mad for Jewish food. Daniel asked for all the trimmings with his salt beef sandwich including sauerkraut and latkes [fried potato cakes].”
Craig has signed up to film his fifth Bond movie, called “Bond 25,” which will be the 25th 007 movie made.
