Daniel Craig's Children Won't Be Getting A Penny Of His Fortune: 'Quite Distasteful'

Last week, celebs' bathing routines was the talk of the town (we're still thinking of Jason Momoa in the shower...).

Now, the discussion has shifted to whether celebs are sharing their fortune with their family or not.

Keep reading to learn why the James Bond actor won't be giving his kids a piece of the pie.

Director Quentin Tarantino was the first one to kick this controversial discussion off.

In a recent episode of The Moment podcast, hosted by Billions co-creator Brian Koppelman, he shared that he's never given his mother money.

This is part of a promise he made when he was 12 after she allegedly tried to discourage his writing career.

"My mom always had a hard time about my scholastic non-ability," he told Koppelman.

He said that she especially had an issue with him writing screenplays when he was in school.

His teachers weren't too happy about this, either. "They looked at it as a defiant act of rebellion that I'm doing this instead of my school work," he said.

At one point, his mother allegedly tried to end his writing completely.

"She said, 'Oh, and by the way, this little 'writing career,' with the finger quotes and everything. This little 'writing career' that you're doing? That [expeletive] is over.'"

It was then that he made a promise to himself.

"When she said that to me in that sarcastic way, I go, 'Okay lady, when I become a successful writer, you will never see one penny one from my success," he shared.

"There will be no house for you. There's no vacation for you, no Elvis Cadillac for mommy. You get nothing. Because you said that.' "

When asked if he really stuck to his word, Tarantino said yes.

"I helped her out with a jam with the IRS. But no house. No Cadillac, no house."

Tarantino isn't the only celeb to withhold money from family members. In the past, Ashton Kutcher shared that he won't be leaving his fortune to his kids.

Celebrity chef, Gordon Ramsay, said the same thing.

"It's definitely not going to them, and that's not in a mean way; it’s to not spoil them," he told The Telegraph.

"The only thing I've agreed with [my wife] Tana is they get a 25 percent deposit on a flat, but not the whole flat."

"They don't sit with us in first class," he added.

"They haven't worked anywhere near hard enough to afford that. At that age, at that size, you're telling me they need to sit in first class? No, they do not. We're really strict on that."

Another celeb whose kids won't see a dime is Daniel Craig.

The James Bond actor has two children: a 29-year-old daughter, Ella, with his ex-wife, Fiona Loudon, as well as a daughter with wife, Rachel Weisz.

In a new interview with Candis magazine, he said he finds inheritance "distasteful" and wants to give his fortune away.

For reference, his fortune is reportedly $160 million, according to celebritynetworth.com.

A vast majority of this he's earned from the James Bond franchise, in addition to the Knives Out franchise.

“Isn’t there an old adage that if you die a rich person, you’ve failed?" he told the mag.

"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," he continued.

He went on to say that he doesn'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."

We wonder what his kids think of that! In the meantime, share your thoughts with us below. Are celebrities right to keep their fortune from their loved ones?
