Bérénice Marlohe smoulders in the
latest issue of GQ Magazine and talks about her 'part
part black panther'
Bond girl character...
Bérénice Marlohe Does GQ
4th July 2012
The new Bond girl Bérénice Marlohe
is already making waves, months before she will make her big
performance as Severine opposite Daniel Craig in the upcoming
007 adventure "Skyfall".
The French-Cambodian actress is splashed
on the cover of the August edition of GQ Magazine in the UK.
Inside the latest
edition, she poses with a classic Aston Martin DB5 in a stylish
raincoat wearing only lingerie underneath. The outfit in photoshoot,
which is not a costume from "Skyfall", echoes the one
worn by Gemma Arterton as Agent Fields in the previous film, "Quantum
"With the Bond movies, you never really see nudity - they're
quite chaste, actually. Which is, to me, the best way. Nowadays
you see too many naked women, all the time, everywhere. In video
clips. It's so boring! You lose this magic and suddenly a woman
that is dressed seems way more attractive."
Some tabloids have already misinterpreted this
to mean that Marlohe said 'no' to doing nudity in the film. According
during filming, fans need not worry and will get to see plenty
of the starlet on the big screen.
What has been well (and accurately) reported
is that Marlohe went to extraordinary lengths to land the role,
with little help
of an agency. Perhaps this is down to her experience in her native
France. "All the French agents told me, 'No, you don't look
like a French actress, this will not work.' Even people who saw
me in acting workshops and wanted to introduce me to people;
when those people considered my picture, they said, 'No, she
will never work in France.' I don't know what to say. I was not
in the mould."
