Priyanka Chopra Makes the Case for a Female James Bond

Prinyka Chopra shows off her boxing skills for Refinery29’s (Un)Cover photo shoot!

Here’s what the 34-year-old Quantico star had to share:

On a woman being able to play James Bond: “Look. It’s a story about a British guy who happens to be a white dude. There’s nothing wrong with that, whoever came up with it. And not Jane. She should be James Bond, and she should be able to sell it. Why not?’”

On diversity in Hollywood: “I know everything is about diversity right now. But I think it should be about humanity. It’s 2016. It’s so easy to separate ourselves and become smaller and smaller pieces of humanity… I don’t like the phrase ‘woman of color.’ I feel like that puts women in a box. I’m a woman, whether I’m white, Black, brown, green, blue, or pink — whatever. I think we need to start looking beyond that. It would be a big win for women, period.”

On her role in Baywatch: “I’m this gorgeous bombshell in couture on the beach. This was so much fun, because it was not like a badass villain who’s getting into a fight. This was a woman using her woman skills to be a villain.”
