Hugh Jackman reportedly assisted Daniel Craig in coming to terms with the celebrity he gained after portraying James Bond.

During an interview, the actor said that he felt “physically and mentally under siege” while playing James Bond.

Craig, who has played British secret agent 007 since 2006, admitted that the stardom that comes with the character was hard to deal with.

“My personal life was affected by being that famous all of a sudden,” he said adding “I used to lock myself in and close the curtains, I was in cloud cuckoo land. I was physically and mentally under siege.”

Craig admitted to the newspaper, “I didn’t like the newfound level of fame.” It was Hugh Jackman who assisted me in coming to terms with and appreciating it.

His most recent outing as James, “No Time To Die,” is set to hit theatres in late September, despite industry speculation that the film’s release could be postponed for a fourth time due to the coronavirus outbreak.

According to a tweet from the official @007 Bond Twitter account, the red carpet world premiere for the Universal Pictures and MGM film will take place in London on September 28, ahead of its scheduled release date in U.K. theatres on September 30.

It will be released in the United States on October 8.
