In a mere matter of weeks, minds will finally be made up over whether Casino Royale's latest Bond incarnation, Daniel Craig, has proven his many, internet-enabled naysayers wrong and was worthy all along of inheriting the superspy's mantle. Still, a little nudge of encouragement from a respected co-star never hurts, such as when Dame Judi Dench recently registered her awed surprise at having caught a sidelong glance at Craig's generously proportioned double-oh-seven.

James Bond actor Daniel Craig has a large penis, according to his 'Casino Royale' co-star Dame Judi Dench.

The British actress caught a glimpse of the hunky actor's impressive appendage as he was getting dressed in his trailer which was situated opposite her own.

Dench, who plays secret service boss M in the new movie, told Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "It's an absolute monster! Maybe I shouldn't have said that. How uncouth of me!"

Having some time ago laid our impressionable eyes upon the body part in question, we'll assume Dench's choice of the descriptive "monster" in this instance refers to a supernatural creature of the diminutive sort—a trembling, wet mogwai, for instance.
