Daniel Craig is the booziest James Bond ever, knocking back an average of 20 units per film, new research reveals.
The Martini-loving spy has been played by six different actors across more than five decades but none of them have consumed as much alcohol as the current 007.
Craig’s average units are eight more then the next James Bond on the list, Pierce Brosnan (with 11). Sean Connery and Roger Moore’s both average out at 11 units each.
George Lazenby’s Bond, in the one film in which he starred as 007, on her majesty’s secret service in 1969, drank 9 units. Timothy Dalton, who played Bond in two films, averaged 4.5 units.
The researchers believe that much of this could be down to the increasing muscle of the franchises sponsors. Luxury Vodka Brand Belvedere will be sponsoring the upcoming film.
Despite playing the booziest Bond on camera, Daniel Craig, has previously lamented his inability to drink in public since taking on the role.
The Grocer’s Rob Brown said, “We can exclusively reveal that Daniel Craig is by far the booziest Bond the world has ever seen, having knocked back an average of 20 units of alcohol per film since his debut in 2006’s ‘Casino Royale’.
“This matters, for a number of reasons. Bond is the most powerful film franchise on the planet. The previous instalment of 007, ‘Skyfall’, was the highest-grossing British film, ever”.
Spectre will be Craig’s forth performance and will feature Django Unchained actor Christoph Waltz as his arch rival.
It is scheduled to be released on November 6.
