Movie star Daniel Craig finds the auditions for Bond girls "weird" because they involve him trying to connect with a string of beautiful ladies.
The producers of the Bond films have always insisted their stars play a major part in picking the suave superspy's leading ladies - but Craig admits he feels uncomfortable choosing a film partner in a room of hopefuls.
He says, "They build a set, and you get the cameras in; then you're introduced to 10 girls. You have to act out a scene with them.
"It's kind of weird and awkward and strange, but you know if something's working almost immediately."
So far, Craig has helped select Eva Green for Casino Royale and Olga Kurylenko for new 007 adventure Quantum of Solace.
