He recruited both the director Sam Mendes and villain Javier Bardem to join him in the latest 007 installment, Skyfall. And now Daniel Craig has revealed his top pick for the next Bond girl.
While being interviewed on Globalgrind.com the British star revealed he can see singer Rihanna playing the MI6 agent’s love interest.
Craig, who was promoting the 23rd Bond movie on the web show, was asked by interviewer Ben Lyons: ‘Who makes a better Bond girl: Rihanna or Beyonce?’
After a moment’s hesitation, Craig, who is playing the legendary spy for the third time replied: ‘Rihanna, I think.’
Questioning Craig’s choice as to why he would choose the Diamonds singer he said: ‘She’s dirtier.’
But when the same question was put to Skyfall’s leading ladies, Naomie Harris and Bérénice Marlohe, shortly afterwards they went for Beyonce.
Upon being told their co-star had picked the 24-year-old Barbadian recording artist on the basis of her being ‘dirtier’, the pair looked shocked.
‘Is that what you need to be a Bond girl?’ asked Naomie, who plays Miss Moneypenny in the new film.
On hearing the news Rihanna, who made her acting debut earlier this year in the sci-fi blockbuster Battleship, tweeted: ‘Daniel Craig Says Rihanna Would Be An Ideal Bond Girl.. this makes me happy :)’
