When asked about landing on several shortlists for the role, the Mad Max: Fury Road star said, “I think I’m a little bit too young to be honest,” explaining that Bond is typically in his “30s or 40s.”
“Yeah, but that’s getting a little stale,” Kristen quickly interjected, calling her co-star “modest.”
The celebs then called the outrage surrounding a black or female Bond “silly.”
“We’ll walk into the screen test and I’ll see you dressed in a tuxedo,” Nicholas cracked. “I’ll be like, ‘Kristen, what are you doing here?’ I’ll just turn around and walk straight back out.”
Kristen then took it one step further and pitched a pretty interesting marketing strategy to introduce the new Bond.
“You start off as the Bond girl and then you think it’s just the girlfriend and then you’re like, ‘She’s actually [Bond],'” she said. “In the trailer, it’s him and then [a] bait and switch.”
Nicholas quipped, “I’ll be like your Q.”
