Priyanka Chopra wants to play James Bond -- not a Bond girl


Priyanka Chopra is a boss in more ways than one. She recently came to Meghan Markle's defense when Wendy Williams referred to her as "Prince Harry's girlfriend." She's outspoken about race and female sexuality depictions in entertainment. Oh, and she wore this iconic, long-ass trenchcoat to the 2017 Met Gala. Chopra pretty much has a glittery halo above her head at all times. She's a queen—or, as the youths would say, #queen #yas #goals. (Am I cool yet?)

And the Quantico actress is still delivering the life-giving quotes. In a recent interview with James Corden on The Late Late Show, Chopra addressed rumors that she wants to play a Bond girl in the next 007 film. Spoiler alert: It's not true. She doesn't want to a play a Bond girl; what she does want, though, is far more epic—and necessary.

"I've always said I would prefer to play Bond," Chopra said. "I think I hope, in my lifetime, I get to see such iconic parts be played by women in a genderless [way]—even if it's not me." Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales star Kaya Scodelario was asked the same question, and her response was equally as great. "I'd much rather be the one that finally gets to kill Bond and doesn't have to sleep with him," she said. "I think that'd be much more fun." The audience appropriately applauded both of these answers.
