The James Bond movies have a formula - gadgets, guns, car chases, fight scenes, and, most importantly, beautiful women whom Bond (improbably, it has to be said) seduces at every turn. It's this very formula that has helped turn Ian Fleming's super spy into a household name and global brand. The 'honour' of being a Bond girl is bestowed upon few, and while they become part of a legacy, it can be hard for the actresses who portray the 'girls' to maintain a level of mainstream success. It's all too common, sadly, to see women of a fine acting calibre unable to find new material, or to break out of the objectified roles altogether - actresses such as Britt Ekland, Lois Chiles, Barbara Bach, and Izabella Scorupco for example, failed to maintain the global success and exposure that a Bond film gifts. However, fortunately, more and more Bond girls are finding success following their turns in the franchise, and the 'Bond Girl Curse', as it is known in certain areas of popular culture, seems to be lifting. To prove this point, here are ten former Bond girls who have beaten off the curse and moved forward to have amazing careers away from 007.
