Kate Upton says she wouldn’t mind being a Bond girl: could she pull it off?

Kate Upton

As far as models go, Kate Upton is a sweet, fun girl with a lot of ambition, and she showed up at the James Bond documentary, Everything or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007, looking rather magnificent and sophisticated (for her). Kate wore a floaty white blouse with a black leather pencil skirt and black pumps. She’s had such a busy year so far between covering the SI swimsuit edition, doing the “Cat Daddy” dance for creepy Terry Richardson, giving some pretty good first date advice, and trying her hand at high fashion while declaring her intention to “bring back the supermodel.” Now she’s talked to Page Six from the red carpet about how she wouldn’t mind, you know, being a Bond girl too. Hint, hint:

Could Kate Upton qualify as a future Bond Girl? The busty Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl certainly has the body for the job. But she says she doesn’t have the butt-kicking skills to match. “I would need to go through some intense training to learn all the Bond Girl moves,” she told us at a premiere of the doc Everything or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007.

Though, she added, “It’s a very prestigious title, and it would be a very cool role.” Upton — who wowed the crowd in a sheer white top and tight leather skirt — named Halle Berry from Die Another Day as her favorite Bond gal. The 007 doc debuted ahead of Daniel Craig’s Skyfall, which hits Nov. 9, with Berenice Marlohe as the babe.

Her favorite Bond girl is Halle Berry? I find that hard to believe, but maybe she’s just thinking from the perspective of a swimsuit model, and Halle did look great in that orange bikini. What else did Halle’s Bond girl do? I can’t remember. Even compared to the likes of Ursula Andruss, my favorite Bond girl will always be Eva Green.

Seriously though, I think Kate probably could have pulled off a Pierce Brosnan-era Bond girl. With Daniel Craig, the movies are more serious, and so are the girls, but with Pierce, there was still a dash of the humor left in the franchise. If Denise Richards could (sort of) pull off a nuclear physicist Bond girl next to Pierce, then Kate Upton could probably (sort of) do it too.

    She needs to not talk so much. She’s starting to look a little grasping.

  2. Jackie O says:

    she is such a mall girl.

    bond? good god, no.

  3. samanthalous says:

    As long as she doesn’t open her mouth, or maybe the arm candy that dies after sleeping with James.

  4. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Of course she could. You don’t have to be an actress to be a Bond girl, you just have to be hot.

    • V4Real says:

      I agree. Hey Denise Richards did so why not Kate. As for Halle being her favorite Bond girl I’m going to assume she said that becasue she hasn’t seen all the bond movies. The one with Halle is more in her era. She probably never saw the ones with Connery and Dalton.

    • Lurkeelee says:

      I don’t believe Bo Derek was ever a bond girl. Perhaps you are thinking of Ursula Andress? She was John Derek’s first wife and Bo resembled her very much. In fact all of John Derek’s wifes looked alike. Ursula played Honey Rider in Dr. No with Sean Connery. She was the one who came out of the ocean in a bikini and sold sea shells. IMO, best bond girl ever or at least the most beautiful.

  5. boka says:

    yes,why not!

  6. B says:

    Famke Janssen as Xenia Onatopp (squeezed her victims to death with her thighs) will forever be my favorite Bond girl. If Denise Richards could play a nuclear scientist in a Bond flick, I don’t see why Kate Upton wouldn’t qualify. That said, I don’t know if she’d fall into the memorable Eva Green/Maud Adams/Jane Seymour category, I haven’t seen her act before.

  7. heatheradair says:

    Maybe it’s because she looks SO much like my little sister, I just can’t harbor anything but warm-fuzzies toward this girl — she’s young, she’s ambitious, she’s cute — who care’s if she doesn’t have the same look that “high fashion” is used to parading around: I think it’s hard not to like her.

    Or — the mall girl in me feels protective of her, or something.

    Looks great here, by the way. Love the skirt.

  8. Reece says:

    “If Denise Richards could (sort of) pull off a nuclear physicist Bond girl next to Pierce” –No, not even sort of.

    I agree. She wouldn’t fit Craig’s Bond. Too serious for her.

  9. shewolf says:

    I love her and she is gorgeous but she’s good for dancing around in a bikini.

  10. Cam S says:

    I tend to think she won’t age well. She is pretty, but I’ve seen hotter. Would LOVE to know who she slept with for the SI cover. Let’s be realistic

  11. BreeinSEA says:

    I’m sorry but her make up is terrible in these pics. I think shed make a cute Bond girl though… or a less serious bubbly sexy time buddy.

  12. dooliloo says:

    Huh? Um… No. Please no. And true the Denise Richards comments, reminds me that my biggest fear is that they call that Rosie Huntington W., she’s a walking disaster acting wise! Kate no please stay away!

    I hope the next Bond girl is to be a mix between Grace Jones and Famke and Eva, oozing craziness and fierceness and sexiness and elegance all in one…

  13. linlin says:

    Ursula Andress not Andrews.

  14. ruby says:

    Could she pull it off ? No.

  15. Lurkeelee says:

    IDK why the media is still trying to make this one happen. If the guys like her for the giggle fest thing, then fine, put her in a show like maybe a Baywatch remake, but Bond girl, um no.

  16. mollination says:

    Halle is the easiest to come to mind for younger people who haven’t recently refreshed/familiarized themselves with the brand, she was probably just thinking on her feet. I constantly do that just so I don’t have to say “I can’t remember” or “I dont know” and then five seconds later I have a better answer.

  17. dahlianoir says:

    No. She doesn’t have the “OOPH” factor to pull it off. And she looks like too many past james bond girls. We need novelty, we need… Adele <3

  18. V says:

    No. She is at best plain.

    Famke Jensen and Bo Derek? Really? They had amazing bodies, this one is flabby and saggy.

  19. Hm says:

    She has a cute baby face, mesmerizing jubblies, and seems sweet and fun. I don’t see her as a mall girl and def not “plain” (which means somewhat homely, not just “average”). She needs to tone up if she wants more work, but I could see her as a Kathy Ireland kinda model.

  20. samira25 says:

    I doubt she was being serious about being a bond girl. People always make these type of sound bites at these events. Then the media blows it up to be more than it is.

  21. Chelley says:

    Physically, I can see her being a Bond girl. I’m not familiar with her acting skills so I can’t say whether or not she’d be good at acting in the film. I’m inclined to believe no because there aren’t a lot of models who can act.

    • deehunny says:

      that’s exactly what I was thinking. She looks like one but like Bedhead said, the Bond films are darker and more serious now, so her acting would have to be up to par

  22. Kellie says:

    Good God this is too stupid for words…A lot like her! She’s a legend in her own mind, and doesn’t have that certain je ne sais quoi to pull off being a bond girl! If the day were to ever come that this bitch would be a bond girl is the day the 007 franchise goes down in a burning ball of flames!
