Top 20 Hottest Bond Babes

James Bond may have a licence to kill – but it’s the Bond girls who provide the license to thrill.

Picking the right girls to appear alongside 007 is probably the second most important factor in the success of any Bond project – behind who is going to play the man himself, of course. They can make or break a film. They are as much a part of the Bond mythology as his gadgets, his cars or his vodka martinis.

So choosing the top 20 hottest Bond babes was never going to be easy. There are the odd exceptions, but Bond girls tend not to be ugly. Plus everyone has their own favourites. But hecklerspray has never been one to take the easy road – we love a challenge. But to make it simpler, we have just gone for the Bond girls who were the sexiest, rather than the ‘best’.

Trying to judge who was the best leads us to all kinds of questions such as ‘acting ability’ and ‘suitability to the role’, which, to be honest, we are far too shallow to judge. We wanted the girls who made you shake rather than stir.

Anyway, sit back, pour yourself a vodka martini and pay attention. You can disagree later.

20. Kristina Wayborn (Magda)
Octopussy (1983)

Forget Maud Adams, Magda was the real Octopussy.

19. Luciana Paluzzi (Fiona Volpe)
Thunderball (1965)

A fiery temptress and a personal favourite.

18. Tania Mallet (Tilly Masterson)
Goldfinger (1964)

Like her screen sister, did not last long, thanks to Oddjob. But hats off, she still made quite an impression.

17. Jane Seymour (Solitaire)
Live And Let Die (1973)

We’d all like to have played our cards right with Jane Seymour in her heyday.

16. Michelle Yeoh (Wai Lin)
Tomorrow Never Dies (1997)

Beautiful actress who also kicks serious ass.

15. Sophie Marceau (Elektra King)
The World Is Not Enough (1999)

Still sizzles despite having manky ears and starring in a terrible Bond film.

14. Halle Berry (Jinx)
Die Another Day (2002)

Let’s face it, she provides the only memorable moment in Die Another Day.

13. Caroline Munro (Naomi)
Spy Who Loved Me (1977)

A big favourite with Bond fans, despite the fact she gets killed off pretty quickly.

12. Izabella Scorupco  (Natalya Simonova)
Goldeneye (1995)

Unfortunately, spent most of the film being overshadowed by Famke Janssen while dressed in a rather unflattering sweater, but certainly deserves a mention.

11. Shirley Eaton (Jill Masterson)
Goldfinger (1964)

Eaton sparkles as the ill-fated Jill Masterson, and not just because she is painted gold from head to foot.

10. Akiko Wakabayashi (Aki)
You Only Live Twice (1967)

So beautiful you almost forget that Sean Connery has been ridiculously made up to look Japanese. Almost.

9. Diana Rigg (Tracy Di Vicenzo)
On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1967)

She was admittedly sexier in The Avengers, but still sparkles as Mrs Bond.

8. Eva Green (Vesper Lynd)
Casino Royale (2006)

Would have been higher if it was not for her odd voice.

7. Barbara Bach (Anya Amasova)
The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)

Forget the dodgy accent and the fact she has been sullied by Ringo Starr, Barbara Bach brings the X-factor to her role as Agent Triple X.

6. Carole Bouquet (Melina Havelock)
For Your Eyes Only (1981)

Stunning actress who is always overlooked in the ‘Best Bond Girl’ lists.

5. Britt Ekland (Mary Goodnight)
The Man With The Golden Gun (1974)

Why on Earth did Bond choose Maud Adams over her? Great in a bikini, but a terrible actress.

4. Claudine Auger (Domino Derval)
Thunderball (1965)

Rubbish Bond girl but the former Miss France is certainly one of the prettiest.

3. Honor Blackman (Pussy Galore)
Goldfinger (1964)

Incredibly sexy and still the greatest character name in film history.

2. Ursula Andress (Honey Ryder)
Dr No (1962)

The original Bond girl and still arguably the best. The scene in which she comes out of the sea remains one of the sexiest moments in movie history. What a sweet ride that would be.

1. Famke Janssen
Goldeneye (1995)

Forget the risks, we’d all like to be between those thighs.


  1. Shooty* says

    Yeah, I’m largely with you on this. Surprised you didn’t crowbar a Salma Hayek reference in. for example: live and Let Die had lots of snakes in it. Salma danced with a snake. Therefore, that kind of counts.

    Anyway, thanks for including Barbara Bach. She’s criminally often overlooked.

    And well done on not including Eukranian street-walker-a-like, Madonna. (description (C) Tonightly, all rights reserved)

  2. Sicha says

    Halle Berry! You put Halle, come on you got to find taste. I disagree, I could live with every other one but come on Halle almost does’nt even count as a female. Hahahahaaha cant belive actualy that people like her. hahahahahaha

  3. phinn says

    You put that girl as #1 meanwhile the girl that was in From Russia With Love didn’t even make the list? What crap. The rest of it is good though but thats a big miss.

  4. says

    I agree with phinn. Tatiana Romanova 100% belongs in the top 5. And if you’re putting in pop star trash like Halle Berry who was one of the most annoying Bond girls ever, you have to put in Denise Richards.

  5. john says

    Danielle Bianchi deserves to be on this list. I’d put her in top five personally but the fact that you never watched from russia with love and hoped nobody would notice shows in how you made your list.

  6. mst3kster says

    Thank you for not including Teri Hatcher in your list. My keyboard doesn’t work too well when covered in vomit.

  7. Riklanim says

    If I wanted a slightly mannish Bond girl, I’d certainly replace Eva Green with Carey Lowell in “License to Kill”. I’d also nix Halle Berry in favor of Danielle Bianchi in “From Russia With Love”.

  8. Jeff Evans says

    Thank you including Honor Blackman. She was a stunning actress in her day and a graceful woman currently.

  9. bbbond says

    “pop star trash like Halle Berry” is right!! It’s a friking shame she was put in a Bond movie.

  10. Halle2DBerry says

    Sounds like someone is bitterly jealous. Cant leave Halle alone. Halle has the most perfect hourglass figure. She is thin, tall, graceful, yet has nice, naturally big breasts. She also has a nice butt. Face-wise, she might not be the prettiest, but she is pretty. Since its not a pretty competition (though she’d still hold her own), it would be a travesty if she were’t on the list. Are you freaking joking? Do you even have eyes? I hope 3 yrs have taught u some sense lol
