Brit’s Mad on Bond
Diamonds may be for ever but a pop career sure isn’t – which could explain why Britney Spears has set her sights on becoming a Bond girl.
And what a surprise… it just so happens that her mentor, Madonna, played a baddie in the last Bond flick, Die Another Day.
According to The Mirror, Britney fancies herself as a lithe-limbed lovely opposite Pierce Brosnan in the next 007 movie, due out in 2005.
The 22-year-old copycat is in talks with film-makers after instigating a meeting with Bond producer Barbara Brocolli.
“Britney’s desperate to carve out a name for herself as an actress and loves the idea of being a Bond girl,” reveals our insider. “She’s in great shape and thinks she’d be brilliant. She has seen what it’s done profile-wise for Halle Berry and she wants a slice of the action.” But we can understand why they may be reluctant to sign her. Britney was widely panned for her starring role in Crossroads, a sickly-sweet teen road-trip movie.
And since then her acting experience has only extended to a new Pepsi advert, where she appears alongside Pink, Enrique Iglesias and Beyonce Knowles.
In an recent interview she said: “I want to take my acting very seriously because that’s what I’m going to be concentrating on over the next few years.” Sources close to Britney say they hope she will get the part as she needs to have something worthwhile to focus on: “Ideally Britney wants to have a main role as a beautiful villain but nothing has been signed yet.”
Let’s just hope that if she does managed to land her dream role, Britney doesn’t take acting lessons from Madonna, too..
