According to new reports, ‘No Time To Die’ actor Daniel Craig is now the highest-paid actor in Hollywood according to variety, he recently earned more than $100million (£73million) thanks to the sale of two Knives Out sequels to Netflix.
Craig beats Dwayne Johnson, Will Smith, Denzel Washington and Leonardo DiCaprio to sit on top of the list, speaking on his new fortune, it seems he plans to give most of it away.
“Isn’t there an old adage that if you die a rich person, you’ve failed?
“I think Andrew Carnegie gave away what in today’s money would be about 11 billion dollars, which shows how rich he was because I’ll bet he kept some of it, too.”
Craig added: “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.”
With all that money in the bank, his children with his ex-wife Fiona Loudon and current wife Rachel Weisz won’t be inheriting the entire fortune after his gone but would rather leave them with just enough to do “do anything” but not “enough that they can do nothing”.
“After much observation of super-wealthy families, here’s my recommendation: Leave the children enough so that they can do anything, but not enough that they can do nothing,” he said in a note to shareholders, adding that his own adult children “pursue philanthropic efforts that involve both money and time.”
