Actress Gemma Arterton believes a female James Bond would be great.

The 31-year-old actress – who starred alongside Daniel Craig in the 2008 Bond movie Quantum of Solace – says film producer Barbara Broccoli is one of the biggest feminists in the world and she can, therefore, envision there being a female 007, reported Contactmusic.

“Barbara Broccoli is one of the biggest feminists in the world that I know, so I'm sure she would love to do that. Yeah, I mean why not, great,” Gemma says.

The actress says the roles she is offered have changed markedly over the years, especially as she's become more outspoken in her criticism of Hollywood.

“I'm approached with projects that are much more female- centric because I've spoken out about it so much, which is a good thing.

“But I don't necessarily look for these kind of feminist messages or anything like that, but it's always quite nice when there's a message in there. The future projects I have are all kind-of about women that are great, or not great, they're idiotic, or silly, they're just about women so that's a good thing.”
