Monica Bellucci prefers to be called a Bond lady

London: Actress Monica Bellucci, who will play the James Bond’s new love interest in “Spectre”, says she wants to be called a “Bond lady” instead of “Bond girl”.

The 50-year-old, who will star opposite Daniel Craig, 46, in the film believes the youthful term “Bond girl” is no longer applicable to her character, reports

“My first thought was, 'How can I be a Bond girl at 50?' After my audition (director) Sam Mendes told me that, for the first time in history, he wanted a woman of a similar age to the actor playing Bond," she said.

"I told Sam he would be a hero among women for casting me in 'Spectre'.

“Compared to the Bond girls who have gone before me, I am so much more mature. I’d prefer to be called a Bond woman or perhaps a Bond lady,” she added.

'Spectre' is slated to release Nov 6, 2015.
