007 Daniel Craig: ‘Rihanna would be a better Bond Girl’

…but it's not for her acting skills

James Bond actor has said that Rihanna would make a better Bond girl than Beyoncé. The reason? ‘She’s dirtier’.

Craig made the purely hypothetical when asked to pick between the two by website Globalgrind.com. Both Rihanna and Beyoncé have acted before: Beyonce in 2006’s Dreamgirls and Rihanna in 2012’s Battleship.

Rihanna will this week begin a tour of seven countries in seven days, kicking off the string of dates in Mexico City on November 14 before heading to Toronto, Stockholm, Paris, Berlin, London and concluding New York on November 20. Dubbed the 777 tour, Rihanna will travel on a special plane for the shows, accompanied by members of her fan club and international press. NME will be reporting from the tour daily.

Rihanna releases her new album ‘Unapologetic’ on November 19. ‘Unapologetic’ is Rihanna’s seventh album and features her Number One single ‘Diamonds’. Last week the singer announced that a £155 deluxe box-set of the LP will be available to buy – which will feature a host of extras including a vinyl remix album, fan poster and T-shirt and a personal note written to fans.
