Kurylenko and British newcomer Gemma Arterton have been chosen as the sexy sidekicks for Daniel Craig's James Bond in the forthcoming movie.
Unknown Ukrainian model-turned-actress Kurylenko has beaten scores of Hollywood stars to land the female lead in the new film.
Kurylenko will be well-prepared for any love scenes with Craig after appearing full-frontal nude in 2006 movie Le Serpent.
In the Eric Barbier movie, Kurylenko plays a model who gets caught up in a blackmail plot.
In her careers as a top European model, Kurylenko has appeared in numerous advertising campaigns for such designers as Kenzo, Helena Rubenstein and Just Cavalli. Her magazine covers include US Glamour, French Elle and Marie Claire.
Kurylenko recently starred in the movie Hitman with Elijah Wood and also in a segment of the movie, Paris Je T'Aime.
A mere six months after graduating from Rada, 21-year-old Arterton has been named as MI6 agent in the movie, codenamed Bond 22. (Daily Mail)
