London, April 5 (IANS) New Bond girl Olga Kurylenko grew up poor in the former Soviet Union. And she says her struggle is what helped her succeed. She grew up in a cramped four-room flat shared by six adults and several children, reports

She said: “Maybe the fact I had to fight and struggle in the Ukraine is how I succeeded. You can’t sit around. I still have that survival instinct. It’s great now to support my family, my mum, and to help out.”

Her mother left her father just after Olga was born and she did not see him until she was 13.
