Beyoncé or Rihanna? Daniel Craig’s Pick for Bond Girl Is…Published by Natasha Fierce on Tuesday, November 13, 2012 at 10:00 am.
If Daniel Craig could pick the next Bond girl, he would pull straight from the Roc Nation family. But it’s not crown jewel Beyoncé that the Skyfall actor is after.
“Rihanna,” Craig declared to GlobalGrind.com after being asked which Roc-a-Fella babe would make a better Bond Girl. Why? “She’s dirtier.” The “Diamonds” singer, meanwhile, was pleased as punch at being Craig’s hand-picked choice. “This makes me happy,” she later tweeted.
But the current Bond gals, Naomie Harris and Berenice Marlohe, swung a different way. They both chose Bey to take over the storied role, and were surprised at their co-star Craig’s criteria. “Is that what you need to be a Bond girl?” Harris asked incredulously.
Is it too soon to start fantasizing about Idris Elba and Rihanna taking over the Bond franchise, with Bey as Miss Moneypenny?
