Naomie Harris reminds herself she was a Bond girl whenever she feels ugly.
The actress portrayed Eve in 2012 movie Skyfall and was praised for bringing a little more substance than is traditionally found in the franchise’s sexy Bond girls.
She still marvels that she won the role at all and admits it did boost her body confidence.
“I have to say, it does make me feel pretty darn good. When you get those moments when you feel, ‘Oh God, I look like such a minger today,’ then you think, ‘I was cast as a Bond girl… you can’t really be that much of a minger, Naomie!’” she laughed to Total Film magazine.
The 37-year-old can be seen portraying Winnie Mandela in Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom and her red carpet style while promoting the release has been praised.
At the New York premiere she wore a show-stopping Valentino dress with sheer panels, which showed off her toned abs and arms to perfection.
Despite her stellar style choices, Naomie has previously admitted feeling nervous before stepping out in front of people.
“I find the red carpet quite stressful,” she explained. “Sometimes you’re so pinned into dresses, you can hardly breathe and you feel awkward, but then when you find that amazing dress, it can change your whole experience.”
