Daniel Craig nearly went James Bond on a man in a New York supermarket who tried taking a photo of Craig and his wife Rachel Weisz.

The fan reportedly took out his phone to grab either a photo or a video of the couple when Craig yelled, "Is watching me food shopping with my wife really all that interesting to you?" and grabbed the phone out of the fan's hand, reports Daily Star.

Then he pulled out his pistol with silencer, shot the man in each knee, quickly shook himself a martini and escaped via rope ladder attached to a waiting helicopter.

Well ... it could've happen that way.

In reality, Weisz stepped in to calm her husband down.

"Daniel was really angry, and it looked at one point like he might even destroy the phone," a source told Daily Star. "But Rachel was much more calm, and quickly stepped in to give the guy a stern but polite lecture on privacy. She really defused the situation, which could have got out of hand."

"All right, then, luv," Craig said, turning to the man. "You win ... this time, mate. Cheerio. Now off with you ... until we meet again."

OK, that didn't happen either.

Craig returned the phone to its owner but asked him to delete whatever photo of theirs he captured on there. The fan reportedly agreed, and apologized.

According to the Huffington Post, in an interview with British GQ in 2012 Craig said his privacy is important.

"I think there's a lot to be said for keeping your own counsel," Craig said, months after he married Weisz with only four other people in attendance. "It's not about being afraid to be public with your emotions or about who you are and what you stand for. But if you sell it off it's gone. You can't buy it back -- you can't buy your privacy back."
