'I'm too young to play Bond girl'

April 09, 2010 15:30 IST

Though constantly been linked to reports of playing the next Bond girl, Freida Pinto insists she's too "young" to be part of the 007 movie.

The Slumdog Millionaire star was recently reported to have signed up to play Daniel Craig's love interest in the next James Bond blockbuster, Bond 23 which will be helmed by filmmaker Sam Mendes.

The 25-year-old actress is convinced she would be the wrong choice for a role in the superspy franchise, Ok! magazine reported.

"It was very flattering. I don't know if I would have done it. I'm too young to be a Bond girl and you need someone more mature and beautiful than me," Pinto said.

A representative for the actress had earlier dismissed reports, confirming Pinto has "not been approached" by Bond bosses.
