BACK ON HOLLYWOOD

Craig has turned his back on Hollywood, because
he feels more at home making smaller British films.
The star - who was recently linked to supermodel
Kate Moss- has ventured across the Atlantic ocean
to shoot major roles in LARA CROFT: TOMB RAIDER
and ROAD TO PERDITION. But, although he enjoyed
the experience, he insists he felt more at home
back in Britain to make new film LAYER CAKE.
says, "A film like that (Tomb Raider) is just
not my bag. "I've not really got any ambitions
towards Hollywood because I think we make quite
good movies here, but it's silly not to go and
do their films, because they make them on such
a big scale." Craig insists he thought only about
the big payday when he agreed to star in Tomb
Raider, and turned down offers to appear in the
sequel - which turned out to be a critical flop.
adds, "I prefer working on good jobs and my heart
is in the UK. I'd like to think I'd take a job
in America for the same reasons as I'd take a
job here - at least I'd like to think I would."
