As the new Bond girl, Bérénice Marlohe couldn't feel luckier – except for one thing.
"Well, I missed Daniel Craig naked, unfortunately," she tells November's issue of Maxim about conflicting shooting schedules on the latest 007 caper, Skyfall, opening Nov. 9.
While she didn't get to see the handsome hunk who plays James Bond in the buff, the sultry French actress, 33, does reveal about the movie: "It's a terrific script.

"Hero was very focused and disciplined," director David Yates says in USA Today. "It was an advantage that he looked very similar to Ralph. ... But primarily I went for Hero because of this wonderful haunted quality that seemed to bring Tom Riddle alive on-screen for us."
