Actress Olga Kurylenko is keen to settle down and start a family after years of ruling out becoming a mother.

The former Bond girl has been single since her second marriage, to American businessman Damian Gabrielle, ended in divorce in 2007, and she previously insisted she had no interest in walking down the aisle again and having kids because she didn't want to take time out of her career.

She said, "I think I'll be single my whole life. It's entirely possible I'm going to end up alone. Because I don't want to make any sacrifices for my own development and achieving what I want to achieve and I don't want a family to get in the way of that. I feel I'm not ready for that and I don't know if I ever will be."

However, the Ukrainian actress, who has been romantically linked to her Magic City co-star Danny Huston in recent months, has since had a change of heart, and now she's 33, she is starting to rethink her plans for the future.

She tells the New York Daily News, "I'm now at a point when I want to have children. I never wanted a family or kids. I never wanted it when I was 20. Now I understand it, and I do."
