Olga Kurylenko: 'Bond wasn't my goal. It just happened'

Actor News - 25-02-13
The Ukranian star of "Quantum of Solace" recently reflected on her career and her brush with Bond in an interview with Metro.

Although, in contrast to Berenice Marlohe's well-documented campaign to become a Bond girl, Kurylenko says that becoming a Bond girl wasn't a big dream, she does admit that she was keen to make the move from modelling to acting as quickly as possible:

ĎWith modelling, you go somewhere for 24 hours and you donít even see the city, you donít talk to people or see the culture. I didnít keep any friends, because you canít make friends. Itís very difficult. Also, apart from work, they all hang out in modelling crowds and parties. I never did. I didnít feel I belonged there.í

She's becoming a recognised face in Hollywood, but despite this, Kurylenko prefers to make her life outside of America. "When Iím in America, I feel like Iím so far away from my roots, and here I donít Ė Iím European. Just walking on the street in London makes you feel like everything has a meaning," she says of London, her new adopted home.
