Daniel Craig wanted to get out of the role of James Bond from his first appearance as the famed British spy, he said in an interview published as the latest 007 movie was released in the US Friday.

The 44-year-old British actor, known for being tight-lipped with the media, also admitted that he has trouble stopping himself Googling his own name and has no problem with performing full-frontal nude scenes.

"I've been trying to get out of this from the very moment I got into it," he told Rolling Stone magazine.

"They won't let me go, and I've agreed to do a couple more. But let's see how this one does, because business is business," he added.

The interview was given before the new Bond film "Skyfall" became a hit. It took over $320 million worldwide and expected to make over $75 million on its US debut weekend, according to box office tracker Exhibitor Relations.

Over a few beers with the magazine, known for winkling indiscretions out of interviewees, Craig opened up about his obsession with himself online.

"I really try not to," he said when asked if he Googled his own name. "I really, truly try. But then I can't help myself."

"I mean, I could probably put a lock on the computer, but yeah, anyway, it's a sickness. But that's it. Except for maybe I'll look up some porn occasionally. Hey, I'm only human."

He has no problem with full-frontal nudity, having bared all in a number of films including "Some Voices" in 2000.

"Being naked has never been an issue for me," he said. "Whether it's male or female, I don't have a problem with a naked body. I've done it onstage and I've done it in a number of films. But no, I won't be doing it in a Bond movie."
