The actor went on to describe the Bond-esque qualities he saw in Charlize while filming with her:

She's smart as hell. She's physically able. I worked with her on Snow White and the Huntsman. Watching her in those fight scenes, doing it in high heels, by the way, and an eight-foot-long gown was even more impressive.

Honestly, how perfect would this be? She's already played an MI6 spy in her upcoming film, Atomic Blonde, where she drinks a lot, takes home beautiful women, and low-key saves the world. SOUND FAMILIAR?

Plus, Daniel Craig is currently playing James Bond, and he pretty openly hates it. TIME TO TAG IN CHARLIZE, CRAIG.

As for Charlize, she seemed pretty touched when Entertainment Tonight told her about Hemsworth's dream casting.

“Oh wow,” she said. “That's so insanely generous and nice. I don't even know what to do with that. That's really sweet.”Still, it sounds like she isn't quite sure what to make of the possibility just yet, adding: "All of the talk around it I find very flattering, but it's a little overwhelming. you know? All of it is really great, but overwhelming."
