Léa Seydoux, star of upcoming James Bond film No Time To Die, has spoken out on what a Bond girl is in 2020.

And what she’s said is right on.

First, some context: the actress will reprise the role of Dr. Madeleine Swann in the film, out later this year.

She played the same role in the last movie, 2015’s Spectre.

Speaking to Harper’s Bazaar, Léa insisted her character and the film’s other female characters are not there to please Bond’s sexuality.

‘What we forget is that James Bond is also a sexual object,’ Lea proposed.

‘He’s totally a sexual object. He’s one of the few, maybe one of the only, male characters to be sexualized.

‘I think that women, they love to see Bond, no? To see his body. No? Don’t you think?’

This is nothing if not food for thought.

‘We are not here to please Bond’s sexuality,’ she added.
