When asked about the rumors, the 32-year-old replies in an interview with Vanity Fair: “It’s really very flattering.” And although he takes the speculation about his alleged Bond successor as recognition, the Golden Globe winner emphasizes that he doesn’t take praise for himself that seriously. Because negative things can be spread about you just as quickly, he continues. “You just want to stay grounded and be with the people you love and who love you,” adds Aaron.

The debate about the future James Bond actor remains exciting. Insiders told Puck News last year that Aaron was already filming audition scenes for the role.
