Playing Daniel Craig Calls Monica Bellucci a 'No Brainer' for 'Spectre'

For Daniel Craig, age ain't nothing but a number when it comes to Bond girls.

At 50 years old, actress Monica Bellucci (now 51) became the oldest Bond love interest in the history of the franchise when she was cast for the highly coveted role in Spectre. During the film's U.K. premiere on Monday, ET caught up with 007 himself, who never thought twice about the decision.

"She's Monica Bellucci. It's a no brainer," Craig said.

Bellucci silently proved Craig's point by dazzling in green velvet on the red carpet of the premiere, which took place at London's Royal Albert Hall and was attended by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton, as well as Prince Harry.

Craig commented on the presence of the royals at the event, telling ET, "It makes it extra special for everybody who comes to see it."

Back on the red carpet, Lea Seydoux sparkled in a gold Prada gown as she dished on her steamy love scenes with Craig.

"I was not the only one to be a little anxious," Seydoux said. "It's always something strange and we have to do it. It's part of the job, but it's not the worst part."

The question on everyone's minds is whether Craig is hanging up his Bond shoes for good or if he'll continue playing the iconic character. That answer seems to be up in the air.

"I don't know," Craig simply said when asked about his future as Bond. "I don't know."
