Ashley Graham has become one of the most in-demand models in fashion in recent years, and now it looks like she’s eyeing up a move into the movie business.

The stunning model and body positivity icon has revealed that she’d love to star alongside 007 in a James Bond movie, but only on one specific condition.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Ashley said that she’d be more than happy to star as a Bond girl if Idris Elba was cast as the famous spy.

“The only way I would be able to be a Bond Girl is if Idris Elba was James Bond. He is just so fine,” she said.

Idris Elba has been linked with the James Bond role for years now, and he’s one of the favourites to succeed Daniel Craig.

Ashley is clearly a fan of his, saying: “He’s confident. He is sexy and he looks like the type of man that just takes charge.”

In fact, she likes the actor so much, she’d be willing to do the film for free.

She joked: “I would do it for free. Don’t tell my agent or my husband that, though.”

Graham and Elba – are they a match made in 007 heaven?

We’d love to see the pair star in a Bond film together. However, Tom Hardy, Jamie Bell and Tom Hiddleston are also heavily linked with the role, which could throw a spanner in the works.

We’ll keep out fingers crossed for some Graham/Elba action soon though.
