'Pirates' star Naomie Harris could be next Bond girl

Tuesday June 14, 2011

Naomie Harris has confirmed she is in the running for the role of Bond girl in the next 007 movie.

The Pirates Of The Caribbean star, 34, was reported to have been in talks with film-makers to star in the long-delayed 23rd film.

Naomie told the Radio Times she had no issues with a Bond girl role - despite demanding a body double for sex scenes in Miami Vice and telling Michael Mann, the director of the 2006 film, she would not do nudity.

She said: "What makes them (Bond movies) work is that they are responsive to the times.

"(Former Bond girl) Eva Green's character in Casino Royale was not scantily clad. She was an intelligent, strong, modern woman.

"The older idea of the Bond movie is in the past. Now it appeals to all generations, ages and sexes."

She said of her role: "Nothing is confirmed, but I would love to be part of the Bond movies."

Asked about her views on female nudity in films, The White Teeth and Small Island actress added: "It's the objectification that I don't like. I didn't sign up to be a stripper.

"I'm very anti the pressure that is put on women to take their clothes off."

Casino Royale and Quantum Of Solace star Daniel Craig is returning to star in the as-yet untitled Bond adventure, directed by Sam Mendes, which is due to open next year.
