London (ANI): Former James Bond girl Honor Blackman has hit back at the claims that her role 'Pussy Galore' was that of a bimbo, insisting that the character was a strong feminist. In an interview to TV Times, the 80-year-old actress described her kung-fu kicking character in Goldfinger as a career woman who ends up collapsing into Bond's arms.
"In so many of the films, the girls just looked at James and fell flat on their backs," the Telegraph quoted her, as saying. "Yet Pussy Galore was a career woman - a pilot who had her own air force, which was very impressive. She was never a bimbo," she added.
She says that Pussy was a realistic depiction of a modern woman. "Pussy's flying a plane, so she's got to be a strong feminist, but then she collapses into Bond's arms at the end. "Deary me. Unfortunately women do do that. We're good at our jobs, but if we fall in love, we're a bit stupid," she added.
