Penelope Cruz is rumored to be the new Bond girl!

June 4th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

Now that it looks like Sam Mendes is coming back to direct the 24th and 25th James Bondfilms, let the rumors begin on who will be the next Bond girl.

007 last faced off against perhaps one of his most memorable enemies, Javier Bardem in Skyfall. Now it seems he’ll have his hands full with Bardem’s real life wife in the next installment of the franchise

According to Yahoo! Movies UK, Spanish actress Penelope Cruz is set to be the next Bond girl, and at 40 years old (next April), she would be the oldest Bond girl yet. Which I guess everyone is making a big deal about. British actress Honor Blackman was 39 when she appeared in 1962’s Goldfinger as Pussy Galore

There’s no solid confirmation of this, but according to their source: “The producers have tried to get Penelope before, but she has never been available because of other commitments. The discussions have been going on for some time, and they are working out the contract details now.”

But the actress is currently pregnant with her second child.

The source goes on to address that very issue: “She got back into shape fast after the first baby and will no doubt regain her figure quickly this time. She’ll be a great Bond girl. Bond girls are always brainy as well as sexy, and that’s totally Penelope.”

What do you guys think?
