Bond star Daniel Craig has told how he flew into a jealous rage after a man pinched his girlfriend’s bottom in a bar.

The actor said that, unlike his movie character, he tries to avoid violence.

But he admitted that he has always hated men eyeing up his girlfriends — and lost his cool when a perv tried it on with his girlfriend on holiday in France.

Craig, 47, who returns to screens next week in the 24th 007 film "Spectre," revealed: “I play a tough guy, but that’s not me. I’ve always been good at avoiding fights.

“But someone looking at my girl in the wrong way always got me going. I still get jealous, but not how I used to.

“I was in a bar in France once and this guy pinched my girl’s ass and I flew across the room and kind of lifted the guy up.

“These days I’m much more happy to have a quiet word with someone.

“I’m in love, I’m happy. And that’s as far as I’m prepared to go.”

He married "The Mummy" actress Rachel Weisz, 45, four years ago.

First review of new Bond movie Spectre

Before a "Spectre" preview in central London last night, Daniel recorded a radio interview with Nick Grimshaw — and revealed that director Sam Mendes was still making emergency edits to "Spectre."

The film also stars Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny.

And Craig revealed that Oscar-winner Mendes, who also masterminded the 2012 Bond hit "Skyfall," was working on the film just nine days before its world premiere at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

In the interview airing today on the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show, he said: “Sam finished editing the movie on Saturday, which is the wettest print — because we release next Monday.”

He added: “However long it takes to shoot 30 seconds, which can be a day, we have to have one suit for that day, one suit for the next day.

“Every stage of the fight has a different suit. We can get through 30 suits for one sequence.”

He went on to reveal that he had to completely give up on family life while shooting the movie.

He said: “I’m away from home for eight months so you have to. There’s no other way of doing it. My family hate me. They’re just starting to forgive me now.”
