Not even James Bond can escape the dangers of virtual interviews.

As part of Variety's Actors on Actors series, Daniel Craig sat down for an interview with close friend Javier Bardem to discuss movies, future roles and the industry as a whole. But toward the end of the interview, Javier had a burning inquiry that he had to get off of his chest.

"Let me ask you my friend a last question," he shared while pointing at his own forehead. "What happened to you?"

Caught off guard, Daniel began flipping his hair and trying to figure out what his friend was talking about. "Did I bash my head?" he asked. "DI I have sandwich on my head?"

As it turns out, Daniel's forehead was bleeding throughout the interview, and an innocent injury was to blame. "I cut my head," he said after running off to check himself in the mirror. "You know what that was? They sent me this wonderful ring flash, which I've set up with an iPad in the middle of it and it just fell on my head just before."

Ouch! Injured Celebs

As Javier began laughing out loud, Daniel was quick to assure viewers he's not "bleeding to death." It's just another example of relatable work-from-home struggles.

"This is 17 years playing Bond!" he joked. "No wonder I get f--king injured every time I do a movie. If I don't get injured when I film, it's because I'm not doing it properly."

While filming 2008's Quantum of Solace, Daniel tore the labrum in his right shoulder during an aerial stunt. While making Skyfall in 2012, the actor ruptured both of his calf muscles. And in the process of making Spectre in 2016, Daniel injured a ligament in his knee.

Perhaps that's why Daniel is shifting to stage combat instead of dangerous stunts: He's set to appear in Macbeth on Broadway later this year.

"We start rehearsals in February. Yeah, something a little simple to do," he said. "It's one of my favorite plays. It's short—relatively—which is always good."
