LOS ANGELES (AP) _ It’s easy to guess who Halle Berry’s favorite James Bond is.

Berry, who plays an American agent in the new Bond movie ``Die Another Day,″ leans toward her co-star, Pierce Brosnan, now in his fourth outing as agent 007 since taking over the role with 1995′s ``GoldenEye.″

``Pierce is my Bond,″ Berry said in a recent interview with The Associated Press. ``Really, when I started to watch Bond movies, Pierce was the man.″

Berry’s runner-up is the original Bond, Sean Connery, whom she found charming for the ``lightness and silliness that he brought to it. He didn’t take himself too seriously,″ she said.

Her favorite of the past Bond movies is ``GoldenEye.″ And Berry’s favorite past Bond girl?

``I really like Pussy Galore (Honor Blackman in 1964′s ``Goldfinger″), and I’m not sure if it’s the name I still love so much or if it really was her,″ said Berry, 34. ``I also like Michelle Yeoh (from 1997′s ``Tomorrow Never Dies″). That was to me the next step in the evolution. She was stronger, she was tougher than past Bond women, but still very beautiful.″
