James Bond actor Daniel Craig is not one to bow down to public expectations.

When asked about his signature Bond move while talking up his latest movie Skyfall in Sydney this week, he told the interviewer he'd rather 'suck pus out of an abscess' than perform on cue.  

In the video posted on Aussie site News.com Craig continues giving journalist Alison Stephenson a hard time with dead-pan answers that make for some truly awkward moments.

While he seems a bit over promoting Skyfall - which premiered in the UK in October and opens here this Thursday - it has just been reported that the 44-year-old has signed on for two more films as the famous British spy.

His latest outing as 007 - will be paid $61 million to star in two more titles of the 50-year-old franchise, The Sunday Times reports.

As Skyfall continues to prove itself a box office scorcher around the globe, plans are under way for a 2014 release of the next 007 instalment, followed in 2016 by Craig's fifth turn in the tuxedo.

Craig's pay packet has taken a steep climb since he first appeared as Bond in the 2006 flick Casino Royale, for which he received $6 million, the newspaper reported on Sunday.

Quantum of Solace, 2008, brought in $14 million for the MI6 tough guy role, while Craig has collected $33 million for his latest appearance.

Craig's 007 predecessor Pierce Brosnan earned up to $20 million for his third and final Bond film, Die Another Day.

Off Bond topic, a unforgettable photo of the young Daniel Craig is causing some buzz on the social media pages. Here, have a look. We know you want to.
