What the what??
On Tuesday, Halle Berry revealed that she’s totally against the idea of a woman playing James Bond in future installments of the spy franchise. Say it ain’t so!
The former Bond girl admitted to Entertainment Tonight:
“I want women to be tough but I don’t know if Bond should be a woman. I mean, that series is steeped in history, you know from Ian Fleming’s stories. I don’t think you can change Bond to a woman.”
We’re actually really disappointed in Miz Berry’s take on this issue. While Daniel Craig is slated to appear in the next Bond movie in 2019, we shouldn’t rule out a future where Bond is played by a woman. We mean, if Dr. Who can become a woman, why can’t 007??
Nonetheless, the 50-year-old seemed resolved in her opinion as she continued:
“We can create a new Bond character that’s a woman, and give her a new name, based on that theory, but I don’t know if Bond should be a woman.”
But how would that be different from the Kidnap actress’ character in the Pierce Brosnan driven Bond flick, Die Another Day?? In case you forgot, Halle played NSA agent Giacinta “Jinx” Johnson in the 2002 film.
Regardless, we want to know what you, our Perezcious readers, think about this debate. Are you all about a female Bond??
