London, July 21 : Current 007 Daniel Craig was forced to add a few inches to his shoes while filming the new James Bond movie, for his female co-stars ended up being taller than him every time they wore heels.
Co-star Gemma Arterton reveals that though Criag, at 5ft 10in, is not short by any standards, he still didn't quite measure up to her when she put on her high heels.
"Daniel is 5ft 10in, but when they put me in heels I was taller than him and it didn't look good on screen," the Daily Star quoted her, as saying.
"The whole point of Bond is that he is masculine and hunky and he has to be taller than his girlfriend.
"Daniel had to wear shoes with a lift in them and stacked heels for a few scenes - but he took it very well. He thought it was funny," she added.
However, she's quick to add that Craig doesn't wear stacked shoes throughout the movie.
"Daniel is the sexiest Bond ever. He didn't have to wear the special shoes during the whole film, just for the scenes where they wanted me in stilettos."
he actor is a bit touchy about his height, knowing that he is the only Bond not to break the 6ft barrier.
He previously refused to talk about his height, telling one interviewer: "Let's just say I am somewhere between 5ft and 6ft."
Sean Connery, 77, and Timothy Dalton, 62, were both 6ft 2in, while Roger Moore, 80, and suave Pierce Brosnan, 55, were just a shade shorter at 6ft 11/2in.
