CANNES, France (AP) — Where better than Cannes, the current epicenter of international glamor, to find a Bond girl?

Berenice Marlohe is at the film festival to introduce the "Skyfall" trailer, in which she stars alongside Daniel Craig and Naomie Harris.

The smiley French actress is also the new face of Swarovski, so she chats while picking her jewelery for the 007 event Monday, a public screening on the beach.

Marlohe says she's just excited as fans to see the finished movie: "I know the actors, I know what we've done, but I don't know what they will do with it. So I'm very curious about it."

As for what James Bond is really like, Marlohe reveals that Daniel Craig doesn't deserve his serious reputation.

"He's very, very funny," she says. "He's like a clown."
