C’mon guys, what comes to mind when you think of Bond girls?
Sexy, tall, blonde, seductive, smart, splendid figure, beautiful?
Off all, one Bond girl caught my attention lately.
At least not from any recent James Bond’s movies.
In fact, I don’t really know her until I read an article about her.
Once again, not her half-naked picture that caught my attention but what she said and how she lives her life.
Not only about Bond girls, but almost all celebrities live extravaganza lifestyle.
But not for Olga Kurylenko.
Surprise. Surprise. This Bond actress that I think of so highly is no spendthrift. She is not the kind of girl that spends all her “husband’s money”.
The Ukraine-born beauty would not waste her hard-earned money on unnecessary things.
Here’s what the 33-year-old said, “I look at something and I think: do I really need it’ No. Do I want it’ Yes. I’ll have some friends who are like, ‘I’ll get this and that,’ and now they have zero in their bank account. How can that even happen’ I’m not that kind of person.”
Starring as Camille in 2008’s The Quantum of Solace, unlike other Hollywood stars, Olga finds that too many people in the movie industry lack “heart” and are obsessed with material things.
In fact, she shuns the showbiz lifestyle.
She acknowledged, “I don’t have that many girlfriends. I’m not friends with people from the industry; my friends are from when I was nobody, they’re not friends because I did a Bond film.
“True happiness is about nature and people who have heart and want to talk about stuff rather than buying bags.”
I think how she approaches life is what we need to teach our children. Not only that, Olga also has some pointers for parents:
She credits her hard upbringing with making her indifferent to materialism and she believes her background has made her tougher and more aware of the important matters in life.
Coming from a Bond girl, you have a very important role to play here parents! Teach these values to your child.
