Is Jennifer Lawrence suitable Bond girl material? FHM certainly thinks so – in their “15 Sexy Starlets who should be Bond girls”, Lawrence comes in the tenth spot, with her Bond girl ‘name’ being Katy Everfitt, and in the section under why she should be a Bond girl, it’s written, “In the first Hunger Games film Lawrence managed to dodge traps, kill villains and look good in a dress. That was also on fire. Hell, forget being a Bond girl, we’re going to send Jennifer the Jane Bond script we’ve been working on for the past 50 years.”
Other names in the list include [in order from #15 to #1] Scarlett Johansson, Megan Fox, Lindsay Lohan, Jessica Alba, Elisha Cuthbert, Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Biel, Mila Kunis, Kate Beckinsale, Sienna Miller, Keira Knightley, Ludivine Sagnier, Sofia Vergara, Marion Cotillard, and Christina Hendricks coming in first place.
Most of the actresses on this list are too high profile to take a Bond girl role – usually, Bond girl roles go to actresses establishing themselves or actresses who have not yet broken out in the mainstream, with the one exception being Halle Berry. For example, this year – neither Naomie Harris nor Berenice Marlohe are well known internationally, but known as strong actresses in Hollywood. Likewise, when Casino Royale was first cast, Eva Green wasn’t as well known internationally as she is now.
