Things We Saw Today: Daniel Craig Ran Away After Breaking Dave Bautista’s Nose on Bond Set

Imagine you’re Daniel Craig. You’re James Bond and you’re above average height, but you’re not the 6’4″ former wrestler known as Dave Bautista. You’re in a scene, you’re being the Bond we’ve come to know and love, and then you accidentally punch Bautista in the face and break his nose. What would you do?

Because I’d do the exact same thing that Craig did and hightail it out of there and send some chocolates after the fact. While filming Spectre, the actor accidentally hit Bautista, who he says was very sweet about the entire situation. “I threw a punch and hit him on the nose,” Craig said on a recent appearance on The Graham Norton Show. “I heard this crack and I was like ‘Oh God no’ and ran away. I thought he was going to come after me, but he was so sweet.”

Talking to Graham Norton about the moment, he made it clear that fellow No Time to Die star Rami Malek is also team “run away.”

The moral here is quite simple: Dave Bautista probably won’t care if it’s an accident, but that doesn’t mean the rest of us are going to risk going toe to toe with him if we accidentally punch him. Daniel Craig might have gotten his knee blown out by Bautista, but he was right to turn and run.
