I liked the fact that Monica Belucci was a Bond woman in the last one. Older than typical but probably even more stunning. And Michelle Yeoh was not a typical Bond girl in one of Brosnan's outings but she sure did kick ass.

The best Bond girl has a certain exoticism or foreigness about her with sex appeal and a bit of danger. The American (eg. Jill St John) or the British (eg. Diana Rigg) just don't have those qualities. Ursula is the Ultimate Bond Girl but I liked Daniela Bianchi.

They are nearly all beautiful and also show different types of beauty, from exotic to classic to sexual. I'd forgotten Barbara Carrera but yep, she was a stunner too. Others high on my list would be Maud Addams and Barbara Bach. Tanya Roberts was a Bond girl too (View to a Kill) and she was also a very good looking woman. And Joanna Lumley makes the list twice, in a way: On Her Majesty's .... and Bond Does Black Emmanuelle.

I haven’t watched many James Bond movies, but I remember seeing one when I was very young and if you could help me find the actress, it would be awesome.

I remember a scene on a boat and a beautiful woman (maybe in a bikini?) with very very long hair. That’s about it, and I don’t know why I just remember that, but I think it left me with a fascination for long hair. Any idea who it could be and in which movie?

Assuming you’re not kidding R53

For Your Eyes Only, Never Say Never Again, Thunderball, and The Man With The Golden Gun all have long haired women in swimwear at least boat adjacent.

R50 Probably Thunderball, circa mid 1960s. Does that match your childhood?

by Anonymousreply 5309/17/2018

R52, oh no, I’m not kidding. I think I’ve seen maybe two JB movies from beginning to end and one of them was Casino Royal...

I tried searching for various James Bond girls with very long hair, but the only one that seems to match that description is Carole Bouquet. Were there other actresses in the franchise with hair down their back?

R53, I was a child in the 80’s-early 90’s, but it was definitely a movie from the 60’s-70’s!

Carole Bouquet by a landslide.

If you get a chance, watch "Trop Belle Pour Toi" where Carole Bouquet is a scorned wife because she's so perfect in every aspect of her life, that her husband, Gérard Depardieu, goes for a homely woman, to whom he can relate and disrespect in the good sense of "disrespecting" if that actually makes sense.

I never could sit through James Bond.

by Anonymousreply 8610/25/2018

When Eva Green was announced as the new James Bond girl, my first impression was, “What? That girl from ‘The Dreamers’?” But she was lovely in the film, and gave a TERRIFIC performance — the producers were smart to cast someone who was capable of bringing an emotional resonance to the role (and I know that might sound absurd about a Bond film, but if you’ve seen “Casino Royale”, you know what I mean!

That said, my all-time favorite remains the breathtaking, iconic Ursula Andress.

And in defense of Denise Richards, it cannot be denied that she was beautiful and extremely sexy in “Wild Things”. The producers of “The World is Not Enough” did her no favors by saddling her nuclear scientist (!) character with a ridiculous name (Dr. Christmas Jones) then introducing her by unzipping her uniform to reveal hot pants underneath.

This is a great thread. These women were so beautiful, in different ways, and any differences we are having is more based on our own tastes versus right/wrong.

Lois Chiles was a very smart girl. She was supposedly Bill Paley's mistress and went on to marry Richard Gilder, a Wall Street Tycoon who has given so much money away, he has a block in New York named after him. (West 77th between CPW and Columbus). Luciana Paluzzi married a TV Mogul who was one of the heads of Lorimar and lives in a mansion in Beverly Hills. Barbara Bach is Mrs. Ringo Starr. Does anyone know what happened to the rest of the Bond girls? I agree that Berenice Marlohe is spectacular. I am sure she will be snagged by someone Super Rich if she hasn't been already.
