USA Today today has a feature on Quantum of Solace Bond girl Olga Kurylenko, and of course they go to great pains to point out that this time she’s more than just eye candy.

Bond star Daniel Craig says Kurylenko is part of a new breed of fearsome Bond actresses.
“As long as the women in his life are equal, that’s a far sexier and far more interesting thing to experience. If it’s a one-sided, chauvinistic thing, I don’t think that’s particularly interesting,” he says. “The world’s moved on, thankfully. What was right then is not right now.”
Kurylenko says Camille is “definitely different from other Bond girls.”
“Bond would use girls to get his way. In this movie, Camille does the same thing,” Kurylenko says. “She’s not just this candy a man walks around with. Definitely not that. … She’s not into that falling-in-love thing. It doesn’t mean she doesn’t have heart. She’s still a woman. But she’s very serious about what she does. She’s like a soldier.”

Yeah, totally, a soldier, looks just like one.  Look, you’ll know the world has actually moved on when they write in a female character who’s necessary to the story, not when they try to turn an underwear model into Hugetits McEinsteinegger to prove they’re not chauvinists.  In the meantime, try not to get PC bullshit in my masturbatory teenage fantasy world, thanks.
