Halle Berry is a Bond girl for life.

The actress, 55, reflected on her role as American spy Jinx Johnson in the 2002 James Bond film “Die Another Day” in a new interview with Vogue spotlighting some of her most iconic fashion moments.

Berry said that her character’s memorable orange bikini was chosen very carefully after much consideration.

“We tried on so many bathing suits,” she said. “So many bikinis and so many belts.”

The bombshell added that though the simple cut and bright white belt appeared “effortless,” there was “a whole situation” involved in picking the right pieces.

“We had a knowing that it would maybe, because it was in a Bond movie, become an iconic situation … something that would live a very, very long time,” she said.

And while the end result was nothing short of stunning, shooting the scene was no walk on the beach for Berry.

“The biggest acting challenge I had was to make it look like the water was warm and I was having a grand old time when I was freezing my butt off,” she revealed.

Nearly two decades on and the sunny look still holds a special place in Berry’s heart; last year, she recreated the look with a similar, strappy orange two-piece for a sultry Instagram post.
