The wannabe pop star has now set her sights on becoming a Bond girl

Kim Kardashian has come a long way since her, ahem, intimate on-screen debut with ex-boyfriend Ray J.

But despite earning a mint from her reality TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kimis desperate to kick off a film career – and has her heart set on being the next Bond girl.

‘She’s really eager to branch out into movies and she’s been campaigning to be cast in the next James Bond film,’ a source tells Now.

‘She knows her limitations and is aware she’s not a great actress, but she’s hoping her figure will make an impact on studio bosses.’

Kim, 30, is taking things so seriously she enrolled in acting classes last year with Hollywood‘s top acting coach Catlin Adams.

‘She’s dying to do a movie, but she doesn’t want to get cast in cheesy films just to get on the big screen,’ a pal says.

‘So she started taking private lessons last August with Catlin, who’s considered to be the best.

‘Even though Kim doesn’t party, she knows it’s important to be seen out and about and network in order to be considered for a role in the next Bond flick.’

Wonder what Daniel Craig‘s new squeeze Rachel Weisz has to say about it all…
