[Video] You Da One! Daniel Craig thinks Rihanna would make a good Bond girl…because ‘she’s dirtier’
He recruited both the director Sam Mendes and villain Javier Bardem to join him in the latest 007 installment, Skyfall.
And now Daniel Craig has revealed his top pick for the next Bond girl.
While being interviewed on Globalgrind.com the British star revealed he can see singer Rihanna playing the MI6 agent’s love interest.
After a moment’s hesitation, Craig, who is playing the legendary spy for the third time replied: ‘Rihanna, I think.’
Questioning Craig’s choice as to why he would choose the Diamonds singer he said: ‘She’s dirtier.’
But when the same question was put to Skyfall’s leading ladies, Naomie Harris and Bérénice Marlohe, shortly afterwards they went for Beyonce.
Upon being told their co-star had picked the 24-year-old Barbadian recording artist on the basis of her being ‘dirtier’, the pair looked shocked.
‘Is that what you need to be a Bond girl?’ asked Naomie, who plays Miss Moneypenny in the new film.
On hearing the news Rihanna, who made her acting debut earlier this year in the sci-fi blockbuster Battleship, tweeted: ‘Daniel Craig Says Rihanna Would Be An Ideal Bond Girl.. this makes me happy :)’
Over the years the coveted role of James’ leading lady has gone to a range of actresses including Honor Blackman as Pussy Galore in Goldfinger, Jane Seymour as Solitaire in Live and Let Die, Halle Berry as Jinx in Die Another Die, and Ursula Andress as Honey Ryder in Dr No.
Daniel, who has just signed up for another two James Bond movies, recently revealed on the Jimmy Kimmel show that he had recruited both the director, Sam Mendes, and co-star, Javier Bardem, to sign up for Skyfall, the 23rd film in the 007 franchise.
