Freida Pinto Has One Request Before Considering Playing a Bond Girl

Freida Pinto Has One Request Before Considering Playing a Bond Girl

Freida Pinto has very little interest in ever playing the love interest to James Bond in an upcoming film of the British spy.

While promoting her upcoming show Guerrilla, the 32-year-old actress shared that she once auditioned to play a Bond Girl after raising to fame in Slumdog Millionaire and has no plans to audition again.

“I’d just come on the scene with Slumdog Millionaire and this is what I hear, is that any actress who just gets their first bit of fame, the Bond rumor is almost like an initiation ceremony,” Freida told Cosmopolitan UK. “It was flattering, but to be really honest I was 24 years old when Slumdog came out and I would have felt totally out of my depth playing a Bond girl.”

Freida went on to say that she would want more in a role than just being the girl that James Bond is attracted to in the film.

“Now I am much more aware of what I want to do in film and what I don’t want to do,” Freida said. “I wouldn’t want to play a Bond girl if she did not have her own voice.”

However, Freida isn’t opposed to gearing up and playing the female version of James Bond if the time were to come.

“Why shouldn’t there be a Bond woman? I think it would be fantastic.”
