Saldana said even her husband Marco Perego – the father of her twin sons Bowie and Cy, 19 months – agrees with her assessment of the hunky star, reported Glamour magazine.
“I think Idris should have been Bond a long time ago… why wouldn’t he be Bond? I love him and adore him and honestly believe that he is one of the sexiest men alive – and my husband won’t mind me saying that because, trust me, he agrees with me,” Saldana said.
