James Bond actor Daniel Craig seemed to have been star-struck not by Hollywood but rather war journalism:

The actor admits a boozy night with war correspondent pals made him think about reporting from conflict zones.

He tells Men’s Journal magazine, “They’d asked me to come along with them. We had late-night drinking sessions where Beirut was an option. Over a couple of drinks it seemed like a good idea at the time.”

Now what bothers me about this article is that there is no time reference. When did he get piss-drunk and start discussing plans to don a press vest and hit the streets of Beirut? I’m getting the feeling that this is borderline “looks like Beirut”:

But Craig quickly saw sense: “That takes a level of bravery I don’t have.”

You don’t have bravery for Beirut of the 70s, 80s, 90s, now? Which one? I’m going to go with my gut and send a certificate to Craig.
