There has been a rising trend in which women are demanding to take over popular roles that were always reserved for men, such as James Bond in the 007 series. Ana de Armas took a stance on the issue, insisting that there's no need for a woman to take over the role of James Bond.
In the latest James Bond film featuring Daniel Craig as the agent 007, Ana de Armas played the role of Paloma. While she's supportive of having strong female roles in movies like No Time To Die, she has a clear message for anyone who is flirting with the idea of turning James Bond into a woman.
Ana De Armas Insists "There's No Need for a Female Bond"
Without beating around the bush, Ana, 34, insists that "there's no need for a female Bond." She would love to see women "given a more substantial part and recognition" in Bond movies because that's "more interesting than flipping things," but she's not at all interested in seeing a woman replace Daniel Craig.
"There shouldn’t be any need to steal someone else’s character, you know, to take over," she said. “This is a novel, and it leads into this James Bond world and this fantasy of that universe where he’s at.”
She would much rather see "female roles in the Bond films brought to life in a different way."
Ana also opened up about deleting her Twitter and staying off Instagram for the most part. She doesn't miss the action on social media; instead, she's enjoying life with boyfriend Paul Boukadakis, the vice president of Tinder, and her dogs.
