Lost amidst all of the talk of the huge financial success of Skyfall is the nearly unanimous declaration of Daniel Craig as having the most amazing ass of any actor to play Bond. Easily passing former favorite George Lazenby, Craig’s ass has been described as “fine” by over 98% of the women who have seen his movies.
While not did not do as strongly with men, 67% of males polled did admit that Craigs ass was “pretty nice.” Another 20% insisted that they “never noticed” his ass. ”Seriously,” they said, “that sort of thing doesn’t interest me at all.”
They went on to say “sure, his abs are nice. I mean, who wouldn’t want those abs? But his ass? No. I never noticed his ass. Not once.”
Craig’s ass actually has it’s own Facebook page, something that cannot be said of the tush of Pierce Brosnan or Roger Moore.
Bethany Mills, webmaster of lookatdanielcraigsass.com says that by any objective standard, Craig’s ass is perfect. ”Especially compared to Sean Connery,” she scoffs. ”Sure, he may have been one of the best Bonds as an actor but I think we all know the Conner of The Hunt for Red October was way more fuckable than the Conner of Thunderball.” She contrasts this with Craig who, she says “has been fuckable since day one.”
While most movie critics have been overly focused on Skyfall’s great action, tight storytelling and solid performances, a few of them did credit Craig’s ass at least in part. Paul Nordness of the Seattle Bugle Herald observed:
A few words must be said about Daniel Craig’s physique. He is in far better shape than any previous actor and ample shots of his backside should excite female viewers who were dragged to the theatre with their boyfriends. I won’t deny that I found myself admiring Mr. Craig’s keister on more than a few occasions.
Several viewers were so distracted by Craig’s rump that they have trouble recalling the film’s plot. Studio heads aren’t concerned, however, as they observed the same phenomenon in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace. Many viewers returned to the theatre two or three times because they couldn’t remember anything except Craig’s butt.
Actually, most female viewers remembered his butt. Most male viewers couldn’t remember anything beyond the scnene where Bond gets hit in the testicles with a rope.
Reminded of the scene in question, Mills’ response was “oh – is that the scene where he was tied to a chair completely naked?”
While there have been many impressive asses in film, Craig’s ass is close to becoming the top box office draw in film history. Film historians have expressed surprise that Criag’s behind has risen so quickly. From his early film roles, most analysts expected his duff to become one of the most popular of all time. Most thought it would take another 5-10 years to surpass truly impressive butts including Bruce Willis and Elizabeth Taylor.
Certainly some of the success of Skyfall can be attributed to skilled filmmaking but experts agree, whithout the fine ass of Daniel Craig, it would have enjoyed far less success than it has seen so far.
