Let's take a look.

1Britt Ekland Net Worth: $22 Million

Movie: The Man with the Golden Gun (1974)

Role: Mary Goodnight

Britt Ekland wasn't an unknown actress before she played Mary Goodnight in the Bond movie, The Man with the Golden Gun.

The Swedish movie star had already starred in a number of hits such as the horror movie The Wicker Man and Get Carter.

In a star studded line up with James Bond played by Sir Roger Moore and Scaramanga by Sir Christopher many had high hopes for this installment of the Bond franchise.

However, critics deemed the movie a failure with too many comedic moments and Ekland was seen to be a ditzy blond agent.

Ekland went on to have roles in movies like King Solomon's treasure and in more recent years has made lots of appearances in reality TV shows like The Real Marigold Hotel.

2Halle Berry Net Worth: $90 Million

Movie: Die Another Day (2002)

Movie: Diamonds are Forever (1971)

St John has been married four times and even dated co-star Sean Connery and former James Bond George Lazenby.

In fact her former sister-in-law is Lana Wood, another Bond girl, who was in Diamonds are Forever and the two have had very public falling out which stifled the promotion of the film as the pair didn't take any photos together.

St John made appearances on TV shows like The Love Boat and Magnum P.I before eventually retiring from acting and going into cooking and entertainment.

7Grace Jones Net Worth: $7 Million

Role: May Day

Grace Jones didn't play the "damsel in distress" role in her appearance in A View To A Kill.

The iconic super model played May Day, who was a no-nonsense bodyguard of the movie's protagonist Max Zorin (played by Christopher Walken).

Jones was very much a pioneer in this role as she changed the audience's view of what a Bond girl could be.

Jamaican born Jones herself never really pursued acting as a career and only appeared in a handful of movies throughout her professional life.

The former model wasn't able to dedicate enough time to acting as she was also an artist, singer, songwriter and music producer.

Role: Eve Moneypenny

This may be a contentious inclusion as being a Bond girl but we couldn't leave out Naomie Harris from the list!

Most Bond girls appear just the once in the franchise and usually join Bond in his pursuit of the enemy.

Whilst Miss Moneypenny doesn't really fit the bill and is more part of the institution of James Bond, their flirtatious relationship in every movie means her inclusion is justified.

Naomie Harris first appeared as Miss Moneypenny in Skyfall as an agent 'in the field' and has appeared in the most recent additions of the franchise including Spectre and No Time To Die.

Harris herself has a had a number of roles in big movies including 28 Days Later, Pirates of the Caribbean, Miami Vice and more recently Venom: Let There Be Carnage (2021) but it is her role in MI6 that is what she is best known for.
