Learning the language for new movie one of his hardest jobs

JAMES BOND star DANIEL CRAIG had difficulties learning Russian for his new film - and nearly gave up because he found it so difficult.

The British actor had to learn the language for his role in upcoming World War II movie Defiance, in which he plays a Polish character.

And Craig admits that it was one of his hardest jobs to date, because he couldn't get to grips with Russian words.

He says, "It was a nightmare for me because I'm just the worst student in the world - I left school at 16. I had to do it phonetically, learn it and understand it."
