For those of you who are old enough to remember the James Bond “reboot” of the late 1990’s, James Bond “The World is not Enough”, you might remember Denise Richards who shared a role in the flick. Nearly 30 years after the film’s release, Denise has been reduced to tears regarding. But why?
As per a recent article put forth by The Express, Denise Richards has admitted how she would often cry in her hotel room during the press tour for the Pierce Brosnan “The World is not Enough”.
In recent times, Pierce Brosnan’s co-stars have opened up on the difficulties they faced after playing James Bond girls in his 007 blockbusters of the 1990s.
Famke Janssen, who portrayed Xenia Onatopp in GoldenEye, felt “thrown to the wolves” by the “onslaught of attention” she received from the press. Meanwhile, Michelle Yeoh, who starred as Wai Lin in Tomorrow Never Dies, believes she wasn’t offered proper roles after playing a Bond girl. And now Denise Richards has opened up on her struggles after portraying Dr Christmas Jones in 1999’s The World Is Not Enough.
Speaking with SpyHards Podcast this week, Richards admitted before being cast as a Bond girl she’d never seen a 007 movie and was totally unaware of just how big the franchise was. Despite struggling with anxiety through auditions and a screen test with Pierce Brosnan, she did her homework by watching the older movies. And when cast as Dr Christmas Jones she was pleasantly surprised to find the role to be brainy and athletic with a depth of character compared to what had come before.
