Fox not interested in Bond role

Megan Fox isn’t interested in becoming the next Bond girl.

The 23-year-old beauty was reportedly lined up by producers to play one of the suave British spy’s conquests but she didn’t believe the part would further her career.

A source said: “Megan might be interested in a villainous role if it was a central part of the movie but she is not interested in being just your usual type of Bond girl.

“She did consider an approach but she won’t be doing James Bond while she’s so busy with other projects. She might consider it again in a few years time.”

Earlier this year, Megan – who recently denied claims she will replace Angelina Jolie in the new ‘Tomb Raider’ movie - was linked to the role of She-Hulk.

The ‘Transformers’ star is favourite to portray the giant green female in the big screen adaptation of the popular comic book series about The Incredible Hulk's cousin.

A source said: "'She-Hulk' comics are popular so it's only natural that the character makes the transition to the big screen.

"The idea is to make She-Hulk sexier but even more savage than the Hulk, which is why Megan is the big favourite for the lead. She'll be green of course and will have to hang on to a few more pieces of clothes than the male version when she transforms!"
