Sandra Bullock, Emilia Clarke and Elizabeth Banks have all revealed they would love to play the first female James Bond.

Sandra Bullock says the next James Bond needs a good butt.

Speculation is rife about who will next portray the iconic suave spy, after current 007 Daniel Craig admitted he would “rather slash his wrists” than return to the franchise. A series of Hollywood stars were quizzed on their top choice for Bond, with Sandra highlighting the importance of finding the right physique for the role.

“There has to be an elegance there, no matter who plays it,” she told “He has to have a good butt, all the James Bonds seem to have a nice tush.”

Sandra then threw out a challenge to totally transform the character for the next Bond film. “What about Jane Bond?” she pondered.

The 51-year-old Oscar winner isn’t the only leading lady pitching the idea of a female filling the shoes of the secret service agent. Games of Thrones beauty Emilia Clarke is clearly keen on the idea of portraying the ruthless killer.

“Can I be the female Bond?” she squealed. “Yes, oh my god, please yes. You heard it here first! Yes, yes, yes, definitely!”

Emilia may have to join a long queue of Hollywood actresses keen to get in on the action. Elizabeth Banks has also shown an interest in trying out for Bond.

“I would like to play the next James Bond,” the 41-year-old said. “I’m putting myself into the pot right now.”

Stars such as Zac Efron, Emily Browning, Emily Ratajkowski and Jason Clarke all revealed Idris Elba was their frontrunner to play 007, while Nicholas Hoult claims he feels too young for the role just yet. Tom Hardy was reluctant to name any favourites, before revealing he would like to play Bond himself.

“If I’m to stand any chance of playing Bond myself I better not talk about it,” he laughed.
