Brazilian model Ana Araujo rumored for James Bond 23 girl’s role

Although Aces Showbiz only cites a unnamed source, they are reporting that Ana Araujo (famed in English speaking countries for being the girlfriend of the Rolling Stones’s Ronnie Wood) is in the running for the same role as Brit Naomie Harris.

A source close to the movie project told the tabloid, “Ana is really excited.” The source added, “It’s all very new to her but she is optimistic about the prospect of landing the role. It’s very much a case of watch this space.”

“I’m now focusing on acting. I’ve got some major roles coming up. My ideal role would be to be a Bond girl and with Daniel Craig as my James Bond, he’s perfect and very handsome.”

“As Bond?” she responds, smiling. “I don’t know — I haven’t read anything, I haven’t seen anything yet, so I’m not sure about that. I’m not predicting anything. I cannot see the future.”

“If the character’s interesting and not just a cardboard cut-out — because I have a problem doing that. But I’d like to be Bond.”
