Idris Elba's Fiancée Explains Why She Really Doesn't Want Him To Be The Next James Bond

Sabrina Dhowre has a pretty specific reason.

Published March 13, 2018

For years, Idris Elba's fans have been campaigning for him to take on the role of James Bond in one of the franchise's future films. However, the person who may be closest to him, his fiancée, wishes that dream would never become a reality.

In an interview with The Sun, Sabrina Dhowre said she doesn't want him to fulfill the iconic role because she would have more time alone, meaning the brunt of the housework would be left on her.

"He supports gender equality but we don't always share all the chores at home because he works so much," she said. "I can't imagine what it would be like being married to the next James Bond, but I'd imagine he'd be 10 times as busy as he is now. I didn't realize how busy he was. But we both do what we can. He's the perfect guy."

The gorgeous couple got engaged when the actor popped the question at a screening of his directorial debut, Yardie, last month. Dhowre said she was "so shocked" by his proposal, and didn't see it coming, at all.

"It's a bit jarring being thrust into the spotlight, but I support everything Idris does and it's nice to be able to be with someone who you can go through all these experiences with," she said.

Also, for those who thinks she's "just a model" or an actress, she added, "actually, I'm in PR."
