HALLE BERRY IS NOT HERE FOR A FEMALE JAMES BONDAugust 4, 2017
Halle Berry famously played a Bond girl in the 2002 film Die Another Day, but the Oscar winner is not down for the role of James Bond to be turned into a female character.
“I want [women] to be tough but I don’t know if Bond should be a woman,” the 50-year-old told Entertainment Tonight. “I mean, that series is steeped in history, you know Ian Fleming’s stories. I don’t think you can change Bond to a woman.”
But Halle still thinks the franchise can sfind a way to diversify with a strong female lead at the helm.
“We can create a new Bond character that’s a woman, and give her a new name, based on that theory, but I don’t know if bond should be a woman,” she added.
While Daniel Craig is reportedly set to reprise his Bond role for the 5th time in the as-yet-untilted 25th film in the series, Charlize seems like a logical choice should producers decide to feminize the character.
Although Charlize may not be interested in taking up the franchise, she definitely proves she can kick ass playing a fierce British spy in her latest film Atomic Blonde. TICKET IT!
She’s gotten us shaken & stirred!
