Relax, Twihards, he kids, he kids. (Come on, didn't you see him on Saturday Night Live
?) Craig promptly returned with a very devilishly Bond-like smile, "I have no problem with Kristen Stewart being in Twilight;
I'm being nasty. I'm only saying that because [The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2
is] coming out this weekend, so we're in direct competition with them. I'm sure she'd make a great Bond girl." Well, she's definitely got a look
that could kill.
Stewart's franchise flick Breaking Dawn — Part 2 bested Craig's Skyfall at the box office last weekend when the vampire drama bumped Bond from the top spot with a staggering $141.3 million intake. To date, Skyfall has brought in $161.3 million at the U.S. box office alone.
The Stewart-as-a-Bond-girl exchange starts around the 2:20 mark, but you might want to stick around to hear Craig say "I wouldn't know a One Direction
song if it sat on my face" a little later in the clip. This guy loves him modern pop culture
, doesn't he? Watch the interview here
Do you think the two massive franchises should cross-pollinate and consider having Kristen Stewart as a Bond girl? After all, Jennifer Lawrence has pulled off double franchise duty with The Hunger Games and X-Men. Or should Stewart, who clearly grew weary of doing Twilight promotion over the years, stick with smaller projects for everyone's sake? Share in the comments section below.
