While Daniel Craig may be among the highest-paid men in Hollywood, the five-time James Bond actor recently stated that he doesn’t plan on leaving the entirety of his wealth to his children. Speaking to the UK’s Candis Magazine, Craig revealed that he finds the concept an inheritance “quite distasteful.” “Isn’t there an old adage that if you die a rich person, you’ve failed?” Noting that industrialist Andrew Carnegie gave away most of his wealth before and after his death, which would be billions in today’s currency.

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

Craig will also earn $100 million USD as a result of Netflix’s acquisition of the Knives Out franchise. Based on a report from Variety, Craig portrays detective Benoit Blanc in the mystery movie. They began filming the sequels earlier this summer.

The BAFTA-nominated actor isn’t the only celebrity who doesn’t fancy the concept of giving money to family members.
