Curvy model Kate Upton says she has what it takes to be a Bond girl.
But while the 20-year-old has the face and figure to appear in a 007 movie she admits that she might need to brush up on skills needed to play opposite Daniel Craig.
The Sports Illustrated swimsuit model said playing a Bond girl was a tempting prospect.
‘It’s a very prestigious title, and it would be a very cool role,’ she said.
Upton made her film debut in the comedy this year in The Three Stooges where she appeared as a nun in a cutaway black swimsuit that showcased her stunning figure.
Upton also had a minor role in the comedy Tower Heist opposite Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy.
The model said if she were to be signed to star in the next 007 movie she would need some training.
I would need to go through some intense training to learn all the Bond girl moves, Upton told the New York Post at the premiere of Everything or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007.
Upton, who has become a sensation in less than two years thanks to her bikini photo shoots, appeared at the New York premiere demurely dressed in white blouse, black pencil skirt and black pumps.
The model, who is rumoured to be dating Detroit Tigers baseball player Justin Verlander, has recently made the leap from bikini cover girl to more high fashion publications including former French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld’s new magazine.

Upton, from Melbourne, Florida, admitted that her favourite Bond girl is Halle Berry who appeared in Die Another Day.
Berry is best known for her first appearance in the film emerging from the ocean in a dazzling orange bikini that showed off her figure.
