The Johannesburg-born model ditched her squeaky clean image for the movie, Flashbacks of a Fool, sniffing cocaine and quaffing champagne as Craig’s on-screen junkie lover, Apple.
The film, which was shot around Cape Town last year, premiered in London last week.
Athans described the love scene between Craig and herself as “very, very intimate”. “We were filming and Daniel just kissed me, we never even rehearsed it … We just kind of went with the flow and did it so well that we didn’t have to redo the scene once,” she said.
The actor, who bowled audiences over as the suave super-spy James Bond in Casino Royale, took time out from filming his latest 007 movie, Quantum of Solace, to attend the movie premiere, which saw thousands of fans flock to Leicester Square.
Athans glowed in a sequenced black Diane von Furstenberg gown, and appeared in high spirits – six months after her divorce from Jordanian billionaire, Eyhab Jumean. The couple’s split was announced after Jumean was photographed frolicking with Paris Hilton on the eve of their second anniversary.
“I’m back on track and proud that I walked away with my head held high,” said Athans.
Anyway here’s the trailer for the movie:
