James Bond actor Daniel Craig has said he cannot understand why he is bombarded by selfie-hunters.

The 47-year-old, due to reprise his role as the British spy in the forthcoming Spectre movie, said he could "do without" people approaching him for photographs.

He told The Sunday Times' Culture magazine: "If me and my mates went out and all got sh*t-faced, and someone started taking photographs, they'd get thumped.

"The other thing I don't get is, people are happy to take pictures of me without asking. But things have changed so rapidly.

"Nobody really gives a f*** what I think about the modern world, but that part I can do without."

Questions remain about Craig's future as Bond - a character, by his own admission, who is deeply flawed and misogynistic - and said he does not care who takes on the role.

He said: "The right person for the job should do the job and I don't give a f*** what colour their skin is.

"It shouldn't be an issue. We should have moved on."

Spectre reunites Craig with director Sam Mendes after 2012's Skyfall became the highest-grossing Bond film in history.

Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw and Rory Kinnear return for Spectre, alongside newcomers to the franchise such as Christoph Waltz, Andrew Scott, Dave Bautista and Bond girls Lea Seydoux, Monica Bellucci and Stephanie Sigman.

Spectre opens in cinemas on October 26.
