'Quantum of Solace' actress Olga Kurylenko has revealed she was divorced twice in four years, before she landed her role as a Bond girl
Bond girl Olga Kurylenko got divorced twice in four years.
The 'Quantum of Solace' star has no regrets about her two failed marriages and insists the break-ups were just the "end to a story".
Olga said: "I don't see divorce as a failure. I see it as the end to a story. In a story, everything has an end and a beginning. We were born and we die. In between I think we try to live as best we can.
"It's the same with a marriage. Maybe when the story starts, we know it is going to end. Those people who are together when they are 100 years old, even they know it will end."
Olga was originally spotted by a modelling agent in Moscow, but left for France aged 16, where she quickly became established as a top model.
She was married aged 19 to French photographer Cedric Van Mol in 1999, but their union broke down after four years. She then tied the knot with American entrepreneur Damian Gabrielle in 2006, but they parted a year later, just before she got her role in 'Quantum of Solace' opposite Daniel Craig.
The 28-year-old beauty added to Britain's The Sun newspaper: "I am glad to have spent a part of my life with my two ex-husbands. My divorces were not a sad experience. It's just communication.
"I learned I had differences from them and they were different people from me. My ex-husbands were different nationalities but were both very interesting people."
'Quantum of Solace', Daniel's second outing as British secret agent 007, is released worldwide from Friday (31.10.08).
