Daniel Craig returns as James Bond in "Spectre," the latest in the series, but could this be his last time playing the iconic role?

After starring as 007 in the last four films, Craig recently said he was done with the role. Now, he's setting the record straight with "Extra's" Jerry Penacoli.

"I got asked two days after I finished an eight-month shoot whether I'd like to do another one and I gave a fairly blunt answer… I'm a straight talker, I usually speak my mind," he said.

"The truth of it is I just don't know. I don’t want to think about it. It's been an amazing ride doing this movie and we've had incredible fun. It's been a lot of hard work, but it has taken up all of my life for two years, and so maybe a little bit of my life back would be nice."

Craig has played Bond for 10 years now, but told Jerry, "It seems about 20." He went on, "It's flown by, it's flown by. I don't reflect much, I'm not one for looking back too much because I think you have to move on in life and you've got to keep going."

Regardless of whether or not he comes back, the actor is happy with his work. "I'm just incredibly proud of the movies we've made."

“Spectre" opens in theaters on Friday.
