Los Angeles - Daniel Craig thinks James Bond is a lonely, "sexist and misogynistic" man.

The 47-year-old actor - who is about to return to the big screen for the new Bond movie Spectre - hopes his version of the British spy is not the worst, but believes the womaniser has always discriminated against women and ended up a "sad" and unhappy character because of it.

He said: "Hopefully my Bond is not as sexist and misogynistic as (earlier incarnations). The world has changed.

"I am certainly not that person. But he is ... There's a great sadness. He's got these beautiful women but then they leave. It's sad. And as a man gets older it's not a good look. It might be a nice fantasy, that's debatable, but the reality, after a couple of months..."

Daniel - who's married to actress Rachel Weisz, 45 - thinks the handsome agent isn't someone he could be friends with in real life.

He said: "I don't know if I'd like to spend too much time with him. Maybe an evening but it would have to be early doors. What goes on after hours I'm not so sure about."

Meanwhile, the star revealed he's set to pack away his revolver and hang up his dinner suit because he wants to get on with life after James Bond.

When asked if he's staying with the franchise, he told Esquire magazine: "At this moment, no. I have a life and I've got to get on with it a bit. But we'll see.

"You know, it sounds awful but I've been left a wealthy man by doing this. I can afford to live very comfortably... I'm incredibly fortunate. But the day I can walk into a pub and someone goes, 'Oh, there's Daniel Craig' and then just leaves me alone, that'll be great."
