We are SO here for this! Priyanka Chopra knows that her fans want to see her as the next Bond Girl, but she has her eyes set on being the first woman to play James Bond!
Priyanka Chopra, 33, has no time for being typecast as the next sexy girl to ride James Bond’s coattails. In a new interview with Complex magazine, the Quantico star revealed her thoughts on the role, and even shared why she would rather play the super-spy instead.
Bond girl? Not so fast, especially if you were hoping for it to be Priyanka! Yes, she’s sexy as hell, she’s an incredible actress, and we already know she is capable of wielding a gun for the cameras. So, why would she want to settle for being a Bond girl when she could just be Bond?
“I get that all the time,” she shared in her Complex interview when the Bond girl idea popped into conversation. “But f–k that — wanna be Bond.” Um, yes please! If anyone could pull off a female James Bond, it’s definitely Priyanka.
The interview also mentions that her role as an “icy villain” in Baywatch was originally supposed to be a man, but she considers being cast as “another barrier broken.” Priyanka’s confidence is out of this world and totally inspiring. We love that she’s clearing a nice, clean path for the young actresses that will follow in her footsteps!
