Daniel Craig recalls the time Desmond Tutu made him speechless

2015-08-28 12:01

Los Angeles - Daniel Craig did some male bonding with DuJour magazine and much to our surprise, he admits to being starstruck by his own heroes and gives us his "life and death" hangover cure.

Who knew Mark Wahlberg had a killer hangover cure to share and that our very own Desmond Tutu could silence 'James Bond'.

The Skyfall actor found himself on the same plane as South African social rights activist Desmond Tutu as well as award-winning singer Alicia Keys, yet was too overcome with nerves to approach either one of them.

He recalled: "On a flight to New York recently, Alicia Keys and Desmond Tutu were on the plane. I didn't go up to them.

"I smiled at Alicia Keys, but I couldn't look Desmond Tutu in the eye. I wanted to go up to him and fall at his feet. It was one of those situations where I blew it completely."

Meanwhile the 47-year-old also admitted to mourning' his days of going to pubs, but let us in on his secret hangover cure.

He said: "Bars are hard [for me to go to], but that's more because of mobile phones. I'll do autographs all day long, and I'll even do a picture at the end of an evening. But if I'm being photographed all night long in a bar, that pisses me off.

"If you ask, I may say yes, but come up to me and say, 'Would you like to take a photograph with me?' If you're fucking sneaking photographs of's human nature, you're sneaking something"

Nevertheless Daniel still loves drinking and has discovered a fail-safe hangover cure!

''There's this thing called Pedialyte. It's basically a diuretic; you give it to kids who are dehydrated. If you wake up in the morning and you've got one of those on standby and you down the whole can carry on drinking!

“[I learned it from] Mark Wahlberg. Who I don't know, but I was told that's what Mark swears by. It's the difference between life and death as far as I'm concerned.”
