During an appearance last week on the Today show, the actress — who once played a Bond girl herself in the 2002 film “Die Another Day” alongside Pierce Brosnan — revealed who she thinks would make a great 007 after Daniel Craig, who, according to People, will give up the role following “Bond 25.”
“A woman!” she first said in response. “No, just kidding. Queen Latifah!”
She continued: “Who should take it? I’d want to see Hugh Jackman or Idris Elba — I’d go for him,” Berry, 52, said, referring to Elba.
But Elba recently expressed he’s not interested in the role.
“Bond is one of the biggest franchises in the world, and for that reason, whoever ends up playing it, lives it, You’re that character and known as that character for many, many years. I’m creating characters now that can still live alongside Idris. Not ones that take over me and solely define me,” he told the Daily Mail in March.
Separately, Berry made headlines last week after she took to Instagram with a photo of herself in what appeared to be nothing but a tank top.
This wasn’t the first time she’s posted a steamy snap of herself, however. The actress often takes to the photo-sharing platform with sizzling photos of herself. In March, the actress showed off her toned figure, posting a close-up photo of her abs while wearing a black bra and faux fur coat. In April, Berry again posted a racy snap — posing in an unbuttoned denim jacket with nothing underneath. Later that same month, she shared a risqué photo of herself immersed in a bubble bath.
