Ukrainian actress Olga Kurylenko enjoyed two days in the sun so she could top up her tan for the new James Bond movie.
The pale actress insisted her Bolivian character Camille should be much darker - and Bond producers agreed to pay for an all-expenses two-day beach holiday, so she could do nothing but sun worship.
She tells WENN, "We spoke about the accent and I was learning all these fighting skills but nobody was talking about her skin colour.
"Some South Americans have such dark skin, so I felt I'd be much more believable as the character if I was darker. I said, 'Look, I think she should be darker,' and they said, 'OK, just don't burn yourself,' so I spent two days in the sun and I became black.
