Spectre: Sam Mendes Talks About The New Bond Women Monica Bellucci & Lea Seydoux

Next to seeing Daniel Craig back in action as the famous MI6 agent 007, fans of the James Bond films always get excited to see the new Bond girls too. More appropriately, the Bond women.

For Spectre, director Sam Mendes had a few specifics that he was looking for in the ladies who would take up the two open roles, for the latest installment.

Monica Bellucci

That search led him to the seductive and very mature Italian actress – Monica Bellucci, and the younger French actress Léa Seydoux.

Monica caused quite a stir among fans and critics, being the oldest “Bond Girl” to catch the eye of the super spy at 51. As Sam Mendes points out in the behind the scenes video “The Women of Spectre”, Monica has “an incredibly seductive presence in life and in the movie“. Any hot blooded male would agree.
