Kim Kardashian is back on the cover of a magazine, and this time, she manages to keep her bikini on, as she splashes around in the ocean for FHM magazine. Is Kim auditioning for a James Bond film?

Halle Berry set the big screen on fire when she donned a smoking orange bikini and frolicked in the water as a Bond girl Giacinta “Jinx” Johnson in 2002’s “Die Another Day” with Pierce Brosnan as Agent 007.

Could Kim fill her shoes? She would love to try.

“I would love to be in a Bond film – a Bond Girl! That would be the ultimate,” Kim told reporters at the Screen Actors Guild Awards.

For now, however, Kim is confined to cheesy reality television. She got her latest show, “Kourtney and Kim Take New York,” off with a bang after throwing a major diva fit about appearing nude in W magazine.

Kim wailed that the editors tricked her into taking off her clothes by promising not to publish her fully naked.

Oops! They did, and so did Playboy, which released naked photos of Kim from their 2007 photo shoot.

You’d think Kim would never shed her clothes again. But you would be wrong.

FHM magazine, once again, asks the question on everybody’s mind; how did Kim become famous when her career began with a sex tape?

We’ll have to wait until the magazine comes out to find out the answer; in the meantime, check out Kim’s photos. She looks good in and out of a bikini. Click the photos to enlarge.
