Olga Kurylenko Talks Tom Cruise Dating Rumors with 'Complex'
Here’s what the 32-year-old actress had to share with the mag:
On the paparazzi photos of her kissing Tom Cruise: “Those shots were clearly from the set. There was a spaceship next to us!”
On money being the driving force of her career: “When you grow up without it, you want to have it. It’s funny, in America some people say, ‘Why do you want to make money so much?’ And I say, ‘Well, I guess you didn’t starve as a kid.’”
On trying to breaking out of her Bond Girl image: “Everybody was telling me, ‘Now you’re going to get stuck in this Bond Girl image.’ Suddenly my goal was to not stay a Bond Girl my whole life. So I was very careful, and I rejected a couple offers where I didn’t want to play another sort of Bond Girl character. I don’t know what was a better choice: to take those roles after Bond where I’d just be the sexy, pretty girl, or to not take the jobs and not appear in the public eye at all? I chose the second option. I think I did the right thing. I could have been more visible right after that movie, and maybe I’d even be a bigger star at this point, but I didn’t want that.”
