World Premiere of Spectre Will Be a Royal British Affair

It's quite possible that Daniel Craig's fourth turn as 007 will be his best and his last turn to play the secret agent who's more like a superhero. Craig, who gives some incredibly candid replies when being interviewed, said he'd rather slit his wrist than play James Bond again, and if he did, it would be only for the money. His co-star, Naomie Harris, who played Eve Moneypenny opposite Craig's secret agent in Skyfall and will be reprising her role in the upcoming Spectre, told BBC News that Craig was "just being sarcastic." She said that his sense of humor doesn't translate well to print and that Craig is definitely immersed in being Bond and will do another Bond flick.

How to pick the right moisturizer

Picking the right moisturizer can be a hard task. What works as a deep-acting smoother for some leaves others' skin clogged and greasy. Similarly, a light cream will leave certain skins glossy and glowing, but won't penetrate others enough. Once you've worked out whether you face is dry, greasy or a combination of the two, you still need to decide whether to invest in a top-of-the range jar, or plump for a cheaper option. To take some of the stress out of moisturiser shopping we've picked some of the best in a variety of ranges, and are confident there'll be something for everyone.
