Today was supposed to see the UK cinematic release of Daniel Craig’s fifth and final James Bond movie No Time To Die. However, the coronavirus pandemic has meant the film has been postponed to November 12. Nevertheless, the stars gave interviews in advance of the original date and the latest sees a very candid interview with Léa Seydoux who reprises Madeleine Swann from Spectre.
The 34-year-old French star has revealed to Harper’s Bazaar UK that No Time To Die reflects the changing attitudes for a post-Me Too world.
She said of No Time To Die’s leading ladies: “We are not here to please Bond’s sexuality.
“My character is not a stereotype. It’s not clichéd.
“She’s a real woman, and an interesting woman. That’s what we needed.”

Nevertheless, Seydoux feels there was much “hypocrisy” in the Me Too movement.
She said: “There is a lot of hypocrisy. Because people knew!
“And they take advantage now to say ‘Yes, I’ve been a victim’, and they become heroes.
“Come on! A hero, for me, would forgive. We need forgiveness, right?”
The Bond star admitted she’s hardly PC and unashamedly believes women see Bond as sex symbol.
Seydoux continued: “I don’t want to be classified… I hate the politically correct.
“And I hate morality. The judgement.
“The world has become so polished now, I find it very scary. We’re not allowed to commit any mistakes.”

As for the sexualisation of the women in 007 movies, Seydoux points out that women have no problem seeing James Bond as a sex object.
She added: “I think what we forget is that James Bond is also a sexual object.
“He’s totally a sexual object. He’s one of the few, maybe one of the only, male characters to be sexualised.
“I think that women, they love to see Bond, no? To see his body. No? Don’t you think? I love to see sexy men in bathing suits.”
The No Time To Die trailers have revealed that Bond has retired with his lover Swann.
However, she has a terrible secret from her past with Spectre that sees the couple break up.
No Time To Die hits UK cinemas on November 12, 2020.
While the May issue of Harper’s Bazaar is on sale from April 2 available here.
