Though actors are putting up their hands all the time these days to play superheroes, one of the world’s biggest stars has revealed she has a different goal in mind.
Jessica Chastain, who is out doing promotional rounds for the release of “Crimson Peak,” says that there’s one role she’s always wanted to have – to play a villain in a James Bond film. She tells W Magazine:
“One of my goals is to play a villain in a Bond film. People ask me if I want to be a Bond girl, and I say, ‘No, I want to be the villain.’ I’m waiting for that call!”
Chastain has reportedly been campaigning for the opportunity since 2013. She’s certainly not averse to playing a blockbuster villain either, the actress passed on playing the Maya Hansen role in “Iron Man 3” due to scheduling issues.
