    Daniel Craig Said He Doesn't Plan On Leaving His Children An Inheritance And Called It "Quite Distasteful"

    "My philosophy is: Get rid of it or give it away before you go.”

    Daniel Craig is a lot of things, but wasteful with money is not one of them.

    The legendary actor has had a long and successful career spanning more than two decades, and with all those huge box office hits, he's bound to have saved up a pretty penny.

    In a new interview with Candis magazine, the actor revealed whether he had any plans to give his kids an inheritance.

    "Isn’t there an old adage that if you die a rich person, you’ve failed?" He shared about leaving his two daughters money.

    He continued on about how important he thinks it is to put your money to good use once you're gone.

    He said, “I think [American industrialist] Andrew Carnegie gave away what in today’s money would be about $11 billion, which shows how rich he was, because I’ll bet he kept some of it too.”

    "But I don’t want to leave great sums to the next generation," he said. "I think inheritance is quite distasteful. My philosophy is get rid of it or give it away before you go."

    Honestly, not a bad philosophy to have. If you're looking for a person to give some of that money away to, Daniel, I'm available!
