Hollywood star, Daniel Craig says he finds inheritance ‘distasteful’ hence he is not going to leave his fortunes for his children.
The James Bond actor made this known during an interview with Candis Magazine in the United Kingdom, and according to him, he does not want to “leave great sums to the next generation” and intends to give his fortune away instead.
Mr Craig cited Andrew Carnegie, a wealthy Scottish-born American industrialist who gave out his fortunes before he died and he intends to share his wealth to the poor.
“Isn’t there an adage that says if you die rich, you’ve failed?”
“I believe Andrew Carnegie gave away what would be about $11 billion in today’s money, demonstrating how wealthy he was because I’m sure he kept some of it as well.
“However, I don’t want to leave large sums to the next generation. I find inheritance to be quite repulsive. My philosophy is to get rid of or give away everything before you leave.”
The 007 actor has two children: Ella, his ex-wife Fiona Loudon’s daughter, and Rachel Weisz, his wife. He also has a teenage stepson, Henry, from his previous relationship with Weisz.
