Hottie of the Day: Bérénice Marlohe


BÉRÉNICE MARLOHE

The latest “Hottie of the Day” comes courtesy of the latest Bond Girl and making her appearance on the latest James Bond film: Skyfall.

Bérénice Marlohe is a French actress of French, Khmer and Chinese heritage. It’s a powerful combination that truly makes her one of the most exotic Bond Girls (Kissy Suzuki doesn’t count). Prior to landing the role of the femme fatale Bond Girl, Ms. Marlohe spent much of her acting career in small roles for French tv. The disadvantage of her exotic looks which kept her from getting roles outside of TV has now made her an almost perfect choice to play Severine. I think she has more than earned her spot in many “best of…” lists for Bond Girls with not just her looks but her acting skills as well.

  1. “The disadvantage of her exotic looks which kept her from getting roles outside of TV has now made her an almost perfect choice to play Severine.”

    Yeah, I feel really terrible for that poor woman being at a disadvantage with her looks. I bet she never gets any attention from the fellahs. Gee whizzle sticks, she fits the prototype of every other “Hottie of the Day”. If she looked like, say, Rossy De Palma (now SHE is an exotic beauty all too often derided as “ugly”) then I would agree.

    Maybe the real reason why she hasn’t gotten many roles outside TV is because there’s a million better actresses out there. 33 years old and not much in the way of credits. To make excuses for her being shunned due to her looks is ludicrous. I’ve seen enough French film in my time to know that they take all sorts (not that BM looks so different from a million other women in French cinema–just your standard airbrushed Cosmopolitan covergirl).

  2. Well, I’m not going to get into the debate about the relative merits of her hotness vs. the hotness of others and what effect that hotness may have had on her career (beyond to say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder) but I will say that Berenice Marlohe’s performance in Skyfall was one of the highlights of the film. She may be 33 and not with many credits but I think the same can be said of a lot of good actresses. To judge on the basis of her performance in Skyfall, she’s got the talent to be known for a lot more than just her looks.

    (Though I always seem to get in trouble whenever I say this, being considered ‘attractive’ is actually a double-edged sword because, often times, nobody seems to be willing to look past the way you look and consider that you might have other talents beyond being aesthetically pleasing.)
