Daniel Craig's Early Hollywood Experiences Weren't So Memorable (VIDEO)

Daniel Craig, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Daniel Craig is one of the biggest stars in the world today, but that wasn't always the case. In fact, his first movie went so far under the radar, that when he mentioned it on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC), the audience didn't even give him a courtesy clap.

It was as if they were all sitting there scratching their heads. 'The Power of One'? 1992 ... Well, we know who Stephen Dorff and Morgan Freeman are, but this one's not ringing a bell. We don't remember this one either, in all honesty.

The silence was so palpable in the studio that Kimmel actually stopped Craig's story. "Usually a couple of people will clap like they really know what it is and love it," he joked.

When the applause then came, Craig shouted, "No, no. Sympathy I don't need."

Apparently, though, Kimmel's audience weren't the only ones who forgot about the movie. Craig visited LA when it was coming out, and even though his trip was supposed to be on the studio's dime, they wound up "being cheapskates," according to him.

So, he tried to go through customs with no money, credit card or driver's license. When asked how he was planning to support himself, he genuinely said he had no idea, and nearly got turned away.

Imagine that. If Craig hadn't have been here to help promote 'The Power of One,' we might have all forgotten ... Oh wait. Apparently, we already have.

At least nobody's forgetting about Daniel Craig's work nowadays.
