Kristen Stewart would like a female James Bond

Los Angeles, July 12 (IANS) Actress Kristen Stewart has come up with an idea for a female James Bond, something which her “Equals” co-star Nicholas Hoult backs.

The 26-year-old actress would back Hoult to take over from Daniel Craig as the iconic British spy, but he thinks she would be an equally good choice, reports

Dismissing critics who say Bond should be a white male, Hoult said: “We will walk into the screen test and I will see you dressed in a tuxedo. I’ll be like, ‘Kristen, what are you doing here?’ I’ll just turn around and walk straight back out.”

Kristen added: “What? Is this weird?”

The “Twilight” star even has an idea as to how a female Bond could be introduced.

“You start off as the Bond girl and then you think it’s just the girlfriend and then you are like, ‘She is actually (Bond)’. In the trailer, it is him and then (a) bait and switch,” she said.

Meanwhile, despite being repeatedly linked with the iconic role, Hoult believes he is “too young” for the part and is backing actor Idris Elba to be Craig’s successor.

“I think I’m a little bit too young to be honest. He’s like 30s or 40s. (Bond) was a hero growing up, I loved watching the films and I enjoyed Daniel Craig, but I don’t think I’m really in the running for it. My vote would be for Idris Elba,” he said.

It was recently claimed British Tom Hiddleston is the new favourite to play Bond and has already started working hard to bulk up for the role.
