Bond: It takes a Guinness to get to the gym

September 19, 2007

Daniel Craig is JACKED.  He got this way for his role as 007 in Casino Royale, and is in the process of muscling back up for the next Bond film.

However, A source at Bond producers Eon says that Craig isn’t finding hitting the gym easy, and the only comfort he finds is in the regular pints of Guinness after a workout.”

This just isn’t any weight loss drug, this is the first over the counter pill manufactured specifically to help people lose weight.
