Daniel Craig is redefining the term, “Bond Girl”. He is appearing in drag to publicize International Women’s Day (March 8).The appearance is set to make the handsome actor even more popular with adoring female fans.
The Bond star dressed up to support the annual event, appearing in a short film made Sam Taylor-Wood. Its theme is gender inequality throughout the world. The 2-minute film also features a voice-over by Dame Judi Dench, who plays “M”, James Bond’s boss in the movies, highlighting the harsh reality of a life of violence and employment inequality that many women face.
A wily Casanova, James Bond may not always have had the best reputation for knowing how to treat women, but he soon gets to try life as a woman, as “M” offers,
“For someone with such a fondness for women I wonder if you’ve ever considered what it might be like to be one.”
Daniel Craig then swaps his smart suit for a dress, high heels and a blonde wig. And he makes a pretty good-looking woman, let us assure you. For your chance to see the Bond hunk getting in touch with his feminine side, and if you can’t wait for the film to appear in cinemas, check it out at: www.weareequals.org
This is an historic occasion, the first time Bond has ever been directed by a woman. The lucky lady this time is Jane Russell, who has worked on hit movies such as “Kick-Ass”.
The idea is that if M successfully challenges an old-style womanizer like Bond to consider gender inequality, then viewers may do the same.
“Despite great advances in women’s rights, statistics show that when it comes to the balance of power between the sexes, equality is far from being a global reality.”
Let us know what you think. Is the short film a success? Is it just good to see the mighty fine Daniel Craig in a dress?
