During her appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Billie Eilish spoke about her Oscar nomination for No Time to Die and admitted that lead actor Daniel Craig is a “DILF.”
Eilish received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song for “No Time to Die,” the theme for the James Bond film of the same name. Reflecting on the prestigious nod, Eilish said she was 17 when she wrote the track (since the movie faced many COVID-19 related delays) and is 20 now. She explained that she and brother/co-writer Finneas O’Connell, had to audition to write the song. Once they were lucky enough to land the gig, she was nervous to meet with Craig.
“He’s James Bond, he’s a DILF,” she said, to full agreement from Meyers. “Those eyes?” she added.
“You have beautiful blue eyes; I have beautiful blue eye—but we can’t even be in the same room as that man’s eyes,” joked Meyers.
“You would not believe them. They look crazy,” she replied. “When I met him, I was like, ‘Whoa.’” Eilish encouraged Meyers to pursue a “hall pass” arrangement with his wife, just in case the opportunity to be in the same room as Craig’s eyes comes up again.
Elsewhere in the chat, the pop star called Saturday Night Live and the Oscars the scariest experiences of her career so far. “It was intimidating, I’m very nervous,” she said of the upcoming Academy Awards.
Billie also spoke about the tradition of fans writing signs for her, and admitted that while she loves it, she can’t always read them while performing. “I can’t do it,” she said. “I try to because I want to read their signs. They work so hard on them. They color them in.” Meyers highlighted one sign from a fan that read, “Billie sign my body and I will tattoo it on me.” In response, she said, “That’s crazy pressure, man, right in the middle of a show.”
