Kurylenko Defends 'Artistic' Topless Photos
Actress Olga Kurylenko is unfazed that topless photos of her during her youth have surfaced - because they were taken "artistically".
A series of half-naked snaps of the new Bond girl, 28, have emerged since she was cast in Quantum of Solace, but Kurylenko is not bothered by the photos, insisting they are not "unusual".
She says, "There are no actresses who haven't appeared naked. These things are not unusual.
"All the magazine pictures are artistic. I didn't do any pornography. It was all done in silhouette. It was advertising stuff.
"It's something I have done but it's not what I enjoy doing. It was part of the job. I haven't been modelling for a few years now. I don't have to. Movies are my passion.
"I always have respect towards people and I do everything with love and respect. There are much graver things in the world to worry about."
