Keira turns down the Chance to play a Bond Girl

Keira Knightley has turned down the chance to be the next Bond girl because she fears she
wouldn't look good enough in a bikini.

The 19-year-old Londoner has appeared in a string of roles completely starkers but fears
she cannot compete with Bond girls who have included Ursula Andress and Halle Barry.

Keira was even recommended for the role by former James Bond Pierce Brosnan but she
told Empire magazine: "I don't think I have the assets to be a Bond girl.

"Anyway, I'm no good with bikinis. They always have to wear bikinis, don't they, Bond
Girls?"

Keira was last seen by fans romping while wearing next to nothing in King Arthur.

Keira is way too modest...

She should let her fans decide whether or not she looks good in a bikini .

WHAT A LIE!!! The only reason she's not in it, is because she would give Pierce a MAJOR heart attack

That's so obviously not the reason she turned down the role. But, no matter that the reason, Scarlett should follow Keira's example and change her mind about MI3.

From 28th August 2003 !!!!!!! :-

LDJW Films reports the unconfirmed news that Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl star Keira Knightley is being looked at for the female lead role in the 21st James Bond film which is due for release in 2005.
The site says Knightley became talk after Bond producers ended talks with Clive Owen who she co-stars with in the upcoming Jerry Bruckheimer produced King Arthur. Owen is the first contender for the Bond role after Pierce Brosnan leaves the series after the making of Bond 21.
The site recently reported that Knightley will also star in Jurassic Park 4.

UPDATE: MI6 contacted Keira Knightley's agent and publicist about the James Bond rumor who say it's false. This puts the site's claim that Knightley was cast in the fourth "Jurassic Park" movie in doubt as well.



As this has come from Empire I'm guessing one of those 'Public Access' questions we all submitted featured one about the Bond role. Either that or an Empire journalist didn't do much homework on Keira.

Uh, no. The last GOOD Bond girl was Denise Richards, and even that was mediocre. Before that, the girl from Goldeneye, but nothing in between. Unless she performes an act of God, Keira's bond girl role will not be that great. Sorry.

I can't believe she turned it down she would be great as a bond girl. Please take to role Keira I would love to see her in a film that's sort of a legend. I can't say I like bond movies but if she would be in it I would see it. I think it would be a smart move for her.
