The Pope 'Approves' Of New Bond Flick, Skyfall

Despite all that sex and alcohol

The James Bond films are famous for its sexy girls, drinking and violence, however the Pope has given his own seal of approval for the new film 'Skyfall'.

Pope Benedict doesn't like Harry Potter or the 'The Da Vinci' code, but the Vatican is partial to James Bond having dedicated five articles to the film in the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano.

It seems the newspaper has nothing to say about Bond's philandering and murderous lifestyle, writing that the film had: "adrenalin-pumped action to exotic locations, beautiful Bond girls, and the inevitable vodka Martini - shaken, not stirred."

It also lauded the performance of Dame Judi Dench, observing she portrays "the fragility of a woman who hides behind the cold mask of the boss of the powerful MI6, rendering her less distant and more appealing".

The newspaper was founded in 1861 and is a mouthpiece for the Vatican, previously typical articles published would be about religion and the Pope however it has since branched out into more popular areas.

The Pope isn't alone in his love for 'Skyfall', the film has been embraced by critics and audiences alike, with the film earning $100 million world-wide.

Who will be Daniel Craig's next Bond girl?

Keira Knightley's perfume ad for Coco Chanel was, basically, a showreel audition for a role as James Bond's female companion. Maybe Daniel Craig's post-Skyfall outing will see the British actress' dreams come true? October 24 2012 (Splash News)
Kelly Brook made every attempt to divert attention away from the ACTUAL Bond girls of 'Skyfall' at the red carpet premiere when she stepped out in THAT dress. We wonder if the glamour-model-turned-actress caught the eye of Bond producers? October 24 2012 (Splash News)
There's no denying that Kristen Stewart is busy trying to shake off her good girl 'Twilight' image (nobody mention Rupert Sanders!) so we think she'd be a shoe-in for the standard Bond bad girl. Could she be Daniel Craig's next leading lady? October 24 2012 (Splash News)
'Casino Royale', 'Quantum Of Solace' and 'Skyfall' have all had a very film noire feel to them - so maybe Daniel Craig's James Bond is about to scoop up 'Mad Men' actress Christina Hendricks for his next adventure? We think the curvy redhead would be a fantastic Bond girl! October 24 2012 (Splash News)
Frieda Pinto is known for very carefully selecting her movie roles, but we think the 'Slumdog Millionaire' actress would jump at the chance of becoming Daniel Craig's next Bond girl in his first post-Skyfall film... October 24 2012 (Splash News)
Li Bing Bing is fast becoming one of THE best known actresses in China, so it makes sense that James Bond producers give the beautiful star a stint as the next Bond girl. We bet Daniel Craig would approve! October 24 2012 (Splash News)
Go with us on this one... cougars are ultra-fashionable at the moment (just look at Caroline Flack!) so it makes sense that the Queen of Hollywood, Helen Mirren, should be given the opportunity to woo Daniel Craig's James Bond. We bet this silver-haired siren would have him shaken AND stirred in minutes! October 24 2012 (Splash News)
Downton Abbey may be over for Jessica Findlay-Brown, whose character Lady Sybil tragically died in childbirth during a recent episode, but her acting career is far from over. We bet she'd make an amazing Bond girl alongside Daniel Craig in the super spy's post-Skyfall film... October 24 2012 (Splash News)
Jennifer Larence is seriously hot stuff at the moment. An Oscar nominee, an action star and a general all-rounder, we bet the stunner would look amazing alongside Daniel Craig as a young American Bond girl. Whaddaya reckon? October 24 2012 (Splash News)
Jordin Sparks may have dazzled us in 'Sparkle', but we want to see her inject some of her sassy attitude into James Bond's next post-Skyfall outing. We bet her and Daniel Craig would make an amazing team! October 24 2012 (Splash News)
