London, Nov 11 : Hip hop and R and B singer Akon has revealed that he would borrow F1 champ Lewis Hamilton's girlfriend Nicole Scherzinger if he ever gets a chance to play James Bond.
Akon is determined to play the secret agent even if he is never offered the role, and he also knows that he would not hesitate to pick 'Pussycat Dolls' stunner Scherzinger as his love interest.
"My ideal Bond girl would be Nicole. I think she'd be perfect," the Sun quoted him a saying.
"Lewis wouldn't mind if I borrowed her for a minute. He seems like a pretty secure guy. He's handsome and a world champion. I don't think he'd be worried," he said.
Akon further stated that if Hollywood bosses refuse to sign him up as Daniel Craig's 007 successor, he would fund his own big screen version.
"A lot of people don't know that I'm heavily trained in martial arts. And when it comes to cars - that's my thing. I was raised on cars," he stated.
"I could do acting. It would probably take me six months to a year of training to make sure I'd get the role.
"I could handle that role, no problem. If I don't ever get the opportunity then I'm gonna shoot my own," he added.
