Freida Pinto as the next Bond girl?
Rumour has it that Freida Pinto is being considered for the role of the next Bond girl.
The Slumdog Millionaire starlet seems to be on a roll. After clinching a plum role in a Woody Allen film, she’s now rumoured to be among the top contenders to bag the female lead in the next James Bond film.
According to reports, Freida was invited to a screen test for the next 007 movie.
The 'Sun' quotes a source, as saying: “Freida came to the attention of the Bond team when they were casting Quantum of Solace. She was too young at the time to have a part as a love interest for a secret agent.
“But she has blossomed into an incredibly stunning young woman and would look perfect on Daniel Craig's arm,” the source added.
With the Oscar sweep of ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, Freida has become a hot property in Hollywood. The 24-year-old beauty now plans to settle in New York and chalk out a career in Hollywood.
