Video: Daniel Craig Dressed as Drag for Women Equality

March 8, 2011 (4:41 am) GMT
The hunky actor took part in a short clip to air at British cinemas on International Women's Day.

Movie tough guy is showing off his feminine side after dressing in drag for a new film supporting women's rights. The "James Bond" star begins the two-minute short as the suave superspy, receiving a lecture from his secret service boss M about gender issues, pay inequality between the sexes, and domestic violence.

He then dons a blonde wig, patterned dress, black tights, high heels and earrings as M - played by Dame - reels off a series of harrowing examples of sexism and the poor treatment of women around the world. The clip, directed by Sam Taylor-Wood, will be shown in cinemas in Britain and streamed online to highlight International Women's Day on Tuesday, March 8.

"" director Taylor-Wood says, "Bond is challenged by M to think about gender inequality, and I hope that the film encourages viewers to do the same."
