While all eyes are on Daniel Craig as he reportedly mulls over returning as James Bond, Chris Hemsworth has an idea for his replacement should he not reprise his role as 007.
Hemsworth tells W magazine his Snow White And The Huntsman co-star Charlize Theron fits the bill because, “she scares the Hell out of me and I think she can beat me up [better than] most villains out there.”
The actor was in awe of Theron on Snow White, watching her tackle complex choreographed fight scenes with ease, even in a long gown and high heels.
“Watching her in those fight scenes, doing it in high heels, by the way, and an 8-foot long gown was even more impressive,” he says, calling her, “Smart as Hell.”
“She embodies every sort of ounce of strength and nobility and dignity and integrity that that character should have,” he says. “Why not? It’s time.” (Source)
When Entertainment Tonight caught up with the 41-year-old actress at the premiere of her new movie, Atomic Blonde, in Berlin, Germany, Charlize joked that she paid Hemsworth for the compliment.
“Chris – so, you got that check I sent you?” Theron joked. “Thanks, dude. I got your back.”
“Oh wow,” she continued, on a more serious note. “That’s so insanely generous and nice. I don’t even know what to do with that. That’s really sweet.” (Source)
