Timothy Dalton has suggested that the newest James Bond film Skyfall is deserving of winning one of the major Academy Awards.

The 68-year-old actor played James Bond twice in the 1980s in the feature films The Living Daylights and Licence to Kill.

Speaking to The Sunday Express, Dalton backed current 007 Daniel Craig’s performance.

“It is absolutely time for Bond to get proper attention at the Oscars,” he stressed. “On almost every level this Bond movie [Skyfall] is right at the forefront of what cinema is capable of.”

He went on to say: “[Skyfall] is an absolutely modern James Bond, a movie truly of its time. Daniel Craig is fantastic and it feels very real.

“It has also got a great story about M with a nice streak of cynicism. I thought the film was fabulous.”

Dalton went on to suggest that his own Bond films may have been “a forerunner” for the more serious Bond films of the current Craig era.

“A lot of people have said Licence to Kill was a forerunner of Bond today and in a sense that is what [producer] Cubby [Broccoli] and I were trying to do,” he said.

“The Bond movies were becoming pastiches of themselves but they were still successful and people were not ready to embrace a new formula. There was a lot of innate resistance to change.”

Los Angeles: Daniel Craig starrer ‘Skyfall’ has become the most successful James Bond film in the 007 spy series by crossing the USD 1 billion mark worldwide. Directed by Sam Mendes and marking Craig’s third turn as the iconic spy, the movie reached the milestone yesterday when its worldwide tally hit USD 1 billion, by far the best showing of any Bond picture, not accounting for inflation, the Hollywood Reporter said.

“It is truly thrilling to reach this incredible milestone,” said MGM chairman-CEO Gary Barber.

‘Skyfall’ is also the third movie of 2012 to cross USD 1 billion in worldwide ticket sales after Disney and Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’ (USD 1.51 billion) and Warner Bros’ ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ (USD 1.08 billion). Only 14 films have grossed USD 1 billion or more so far.

‘Skyfall’ has grossed USD 289.6 million domestically and USD 710.6 million internationally, becoming the highest grossing film in Sony’s history and the first to jump USD 1 billion.

“To see a film connect with audiences is always gratifying, but the success of this film is nothing short of extraordinary. After 50 years of entertaining audiences all over the world, Skyfall is the most successful James Bond film

of all time,” Sony’s vice chairman Jeff Blake said.

The film, from Eon Productions, is the 23rd installment in the iconic British spy franchise. Skyfall also stars Javier Bardem, Judi Dench and Ralph Fiennes

His body have provided one of the most iconic Bond scenes in recent years as he emerged from the sea wearing nothing but tiny blue speedos, but actor Daniel Craig insists too much exercise is bad for you!

The actor has revealed he relishes his time away from the gym when he’s not preparing for a role. The 44-year-old even admits to over indulging at Christmas, he’s just like us!

“I like going to the gym every day because I’m in physiotherapy every day,” he revealed to OK! magazine. “But when I go on [vacation], I eat and drink what I want. I just try and get normal because I think too much working out is bad for you.”

We’re pretty sure that body takes a bit of working out though. His physique has helped propel the Brit star to sex symbol status, something that Daniel isn’t too keen on:

“I don’t know [what being a sex symbol means to me]!” he exclaimed. “It’s not like I go out there to be a sex symbol. I mean, it’s nice of course – but embarrassing.”

This super cute couple have been friends for years but made their relationship official after working together on The Dream House in 2010.

The couple played on screen man and wife and their romance blossomed beautifully from there.

So much so, that they married in secret earlier this year and have stood by each other ever since!

The made reason behind them winning Cutest Couple of the Year was down to a glorious moment at the Sky fall premiere in October.

James Bond himself had come down with a bit of a cold, yet his braved the cold English weather to launch one of the biggest films of the year.

His beautiful wife was by his side and on hand to dab the sweat from his brow and comfort him throughout the premiere – awwww!

The gesture made international news and filled offices, including ours, with coo’s for days afterwards and that is why this beautiful couple have been given this title!

We can’t wait to see what their future holds and hopefully they’ll make the shortlist again next year!
