Where Are They Now?: James Bond And His Beauties

Original 007 Sean Connery starred in seven spy adventures and defined the role. But the once-smooth operative, 85, is now a miserable Bond-basher and is so frail his main mission in life is surviving another day!

Sean spends most of his time in the Bahamas, but looked so ghastly at a recent New York event that friends were shaken, not stirred — and fear he’s near death! The macho actor, who has shocked fans by insisting it’s okay to slap women, says he hates the character he created and refuses to promote the films. 

Meanwhile, Honor Blackman, 90, the leather-clad lesbian Pussy Galore — who turned straight after romping with Bond in “Goldfinger” — is battling the spine-curving disease scoliosis in London. Honor confesses she’s becoming a hunchback — and thinks current Bond Daniel Craig does it better than Sean, who portrayed 007 in seven films from 1962 to 1983!
