Ears pinned back

"As soon as someone tells me: 'You're rather sexy,' I wish I could disappear." Daniel Craig 

I WILL admit to two things concerning Daniel Craig.

1) I found his movie Skyfall rather boring. Our friend Terry Lebo exclaimed, "What?!? How could you possibly have found it boring when it was a thrill a minute?!"

Don't know. Just did. There was the whole repeatedly violating the laws of physics thing, and predictable violence. Except for the end, I just thought the movie was somewhat slow — although I have to give props to Javier Bardem for being a thoroughly grotesque and creepy villain.

There was one thing, or perhaps I should say — two, that kept me completely riveted: Daniel's ears. I couldn't stop staring at them. I'm afraid I kept up a running commentary to Paul throughout the movie. "Would you get a load of those ears?!" "Yikes, what a pair of wings." "All I can see are those ears!!!" 

So naturally I laughed raucously when I learned that someone else felt the same way I did — Daniel Craig

Paging through junk magazines is my favorite thing to do while I get my hair cut, and contained within a tabloid was this little snippet:

“Daniel’s always been oversensitive and self-conscious about his protruding ears. He recently confessed to the director of his super-successful Skyfall movie that all he could see while watching the film was…his ears! So he’s finally going to fix them for good,” a source said.

Hey, did I call it or what?

2) Paul and I can't help but like him for being embarrassed about all the attention his gets. Check out some of his other quotes. 

"If somebody says: 'You were voted the world's sexiest man,' I have no idea what that means. How do I respond?" 

"My mother gave me a real kick toward cooking, which was that if I wanted to eat, I'd better know how to do it myself."

"I've been very lucky." 

"I don't care about how much other actors get. I don't care what other people are doing." 

"Things need shaking up politically, culturally." 

"I'm not trying to be macho, I promise you." 

"It's not like I was trying to be sexy, but I had to get fit because I had to be able to do stunts."

"I take my work seriously." 

"My family and friends treat me as they always have." 

"It's not like I go out there to be a sex symbol. I mean, it's nice of course — but embarrassing." 

"The genuine truth, and I do think about this a lot, is that I'm one of the least competitive people you'll ever meet. Except with myself."

"I know in my life there's stuff that will come back because I haven't dealt with it, and it's the same with everybody."

"I love that my friends are all freaks." 

"I stopped worrying about being desired a long time ago." 

"I'm a really bad liar." 

"There's always going to be someone with a bigger toy than yours." 

"You need to impress me, outwit me, compete with me? Go ahead, knock yourself out, I have no problem with that at all." 

"I think there's a lot to be said for keeping your own counsel." 

"I want people to treat me as normally as they can. Anybody who doesn't, I feel awkward with."
