Daniel Craig reveals the present `M` had waiting for him

23-Nov-2006 • Casino Royale

Dame Judi Dench - who plays secret service boss M in the new film "Casino Royale" - suspected the new James Bond actor was sick of the food being served on set, reports PR Inside.

So when the film was completed Dench gave the 38-year-old actor a few bottles of Guinness and a pork pie.

Craig said: "She got me six bottles of Guinness and a pork pie and said, 'Go on, enjoy yourself.'"

Craig previously praised a regular Guinness routine helped him prepare for filming as much as the hours spent in the gym.

He joked: “I’m not obsessive about fitness. I work out three or four times a week but I take the weekends off and drink as much Guinness as I can get down my neck.”
