James Bond and his CIA friend Felix Leiter go way back, but now it turns out that Daniel Craig was hanging out at the actual CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, last month to learn about what being an American spook is really like.

The CIA's Office of Public Affairs hosted Craig at one of its Reel Vs Real events, which aims to "humanize the workforce" of the CIA and make clear that they're not that malevolent, honestly, and don't go around planning Bay of Pigs-style invasions all day long.

"Mr Craig met with our leadership and workforce, who explained that real life espionage is a lot more 'cloak' and a lot less 'dagger' than presented in the entertainment world of spy vs spy," the CIA's blog says.
