Actress Denise Richards said that the criticism she received for playing a sexualized James Bond left her “heartbroken.”
The 52-year-old actress “panned” for her performance after appearing in “The World Is Not Enough” while sporting a crop top and a pair of teeny-tiny shorts,” according to mirror.co.uk. The actress portrayed Dr. Christmas Jones.
Denise Richards, who played Dr. Christmas Jones in the James Bond movie “The World Is Not Enough,” received criticism for dressing risquély for the role.
Denise, who co-starred with Pierce Brosnan in the movie, said that she often faced criticism from people who questioned why she was dressed so casually for a nuclear physicist.
In a recent interview, she remembered the criticism and said, “It broke my heart that people were making fun of me.”
I'm playing a Bond girl,” Denise said in response to the criticism. (Fans) would have been disappointed if I had worn a lab coat, trousers and a suit.
Since Daniel Craig announced his retirement from the role of the eminent spy four years ago, a new star is required to play the iconic role of James Bond.
Denise offered her opinions on the best candidate for the position in an interview with Variety.
“Sorry, but Bond is definitely a male Bond. And I might face a lot of criticism for this. But the truth is that the Bond movie series was based on a book series, and Bond was a man in the books,” she said.
“I do,” she said, “and people may s**t on me for it, but I believe it.”
The Hollywood celebrity pitched a sequel movie featuring a female version of Agent 007.
