Well, HELLO Hottie! British bombshell Naomie Harris is showing off her sex appeal for Esquire magazine. Check out how the newest 'Winnie Mandela' is reminding us of her Bond Girl behavior....
Naomie Harris stripped down and opened up--literally--to shoot the Esquire January Film Special. In sheer black & blue lingerie and heels, the 37-year-old Skyfall actress turned Mandela star is doing a whole lot of talking...without saying a word.
But she did actually speak a few words...about her equally sexy co-star Idris Elba. She admitted she was the one who started the rumors about Mandela star Idris becoming the first black James Bond.
'A journalist once asked me, ‘Who do you think is going to be the next Bond?’ I said, ‘I’ve just finished working with Idris so, if I had the chance, I would vote for him’.
'The next thing there were headlines going: Naomie Harris says Idris Elba to be the next Bond’. And Idris has had to live with that ever since. Now, nearly every time he does an interview, he gets asked about it.'
And she also told Esquire about being terrified about what the real Winnie Mandela would think of her movie portrayal:
'She loved it. I was over the moon — she was the one critic I was really scared of. But she’s seen it, she likes it, my job is done.'

Loves her! The full interview with Naomie is in the January 2014 issue of Esquire on stands now.
This season of "Scandal", we get to meet a pre-teen 'Olivia Pope' as the ultimate Fixer has some major flashbacks about her mysterious mother. Meet the talented YBF chick who plays 'Young Olivia' inside...
Been wondering who's that YBF chick playing 'Young Olivia' on this season of "Scandal"? Meet super adorable teen actress Yara Shahidi!
Yara is 13-years-old and is already co-starring on one of television's biggest, history-making shows. And we think she makes for the perfect young Kerry Washington/Olivia.
This budding actress is taking the fabulous opportunity very seriously, and constantly tweets about her on-set education she is receiving from the vets in the business. Yara posted about how gracious she was that Kerry made a special trip to the set just to say Hi.
And about her on screen mom and dad (Khandi Alexander & Joe Morton), she looks to them like her personal on-set acting coaches. She says "Ms. Khandi" is "a talented, stunning, amazing role model" for her. And she says she's "learning while working" with Joe.
Gotta love a kid who realizes & utilizes the resources they have at their fingertips.
She's also been sharpening her acting chops as a First Daughter on the Centric network sitcom "The First Family".
And she previously starred with Eddie Murphy in Imagine That, popped up in Angelina Jolie's film Salt, and co-starred in Tyler Perry's Alex Cross film.
And by the way, she's got a super famous cousin to boot: Nas! The rapper tweeted about his little cousin's appearance on the show last night, and they recently snapped a pic together with Nas' daughter, Destiny.
R&B crooner Ne-Yo and his COMPOUND Entertainment teamed up with the Boys & Girls Club of America to party with a purpose last night. See him alongside Kandi Burruss, Keshia Knight Pulliam and more inside....
Last night, Ne-Yo (posing above with Monyetta Shaw and their kids Madilyn Grace Smith and Mason Evan Smith) was a Do Gooder along with the Boys & Girls Club of America. He and his celeb friends had an evening of giving that touched the lives of nearly 500 underprivileged children.
DUring the event, Ne-Yo, whose Compound Foundation has been a longtime partner with Boys & Girls Club, was presented with an award from Toys For Tots by the US Marines.
Ne-Yo's mom, Loraine Smith, oversees the Compound Foundation. (This is a positive post so we will stick to the script, OK.....)
He recently spoke about his mom, revealing how she inspired his sense of giving.
"She is the person who taught me if you are given blessings you can be a blessing to someone else, and if you can help – you help. It’s not about cameras flashing or someone patting you on the back, it’s not about what you get in return, it’s simply about helping because it’s the right thing to do."
Atlanta celebs came out to support, including Bobby V and RHOA star Kandi Burruss.
Keshia Knight Pulliam was also on hand to sign autographs and spread holiday cheer.
During a recent interview, Ne-Yo was asked about his rewarding work with the organization, "Just the looks on the kids’ faces and knowing that I have given a kid who didn’t have a reason to smile, a reason to smile."
Author and former reality tv star Toya Wright was also a part of the event. She had her daughter Reginae Carter there too.
Toya joined Monyetta to help pass out gifts.
Kandi, Monyetta, Keshia and Toya all posed for a holiday pic.
Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed supported the event.
And Black Santa was there in full force. Gotta love it!
