'Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' Star Daniel Craig: Politicans Are All 'Sh**heads'

Hollywood actor Daniel Craig recently told Men's Journal that politicians are "sh**heads" who "stab you in the f**king back."

In an interview that appears in the January issue of the magazine, the James Bond and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo star said, "Politicians are sh*theads. That's how they become politicians, even the good ones. We're actors, we're artists, we're very nice to each other. They'll turn around and stab you in the f**cking back."

Craig said politicians too often try to befriend celebrities in order to be seen as cool. "Tony Blair started it much more than anybody's ever done," he said.

Share your view: Do you share Craig's feelings about politicians? Does politics only attract bad people? What would it take to restore the public's confidence in our leaders in 2012?
