ms.petra (mspetra) Sean Connery is 80 yrs old today. I LOVE Sean Connery. Entrapment, The Hunt For Red October, and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade are my favorite non-Bond movies. Diamonds are Forever, Goldfinger, and From Russia with Love, my favorite Bond movies. What about you?

Jonathan Lopez | 4728 comments The best James Bond by far. Happy birthday SC.


message 4: by Barb (new)

Barb Although he was very easy on the eyes when he was young, I'm not really a fan.


message 5: by [deleted user] (new)

I really liked him in Finding Forrester, and he is pretty good in The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. He did set a high standard for James Bond.

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments He doesn't seem like an 80 year old man. Yowza.

He's much better looking than Sean Hannity, Sean Penn, or Sean Combs.

Make the accent Irish or Australian ... waaaay sexier than Scottish IMO.


message 25: by [deleted user] (new)

Ha, I can't hear the Australian accent. It doesn't sound sexy to me.

Give me an Irish or Scottish accent. Or even a Californian accent.

Californians have accents? (Not counting Schwarzenegger here.) Are we talking Valley Girls?


message 27: by [deleted user] (new)

Valley Girls? I have no idea.

I have to ring the US occasionally for work, California to be precise. The chap I speak to has a gorgeous accent.


message 28: by ms.petra (new)

ms.petra (mspetra) gail said chap! I love you Aussies and I can't wait to visit there and drink up the language!


message 29: by [deleted user] (new)

Look me up when you do!

Misha (ninthwanderer) I used to love Sean Connery until he told Barbara Walters he thought it was okay to hit a woman, 'cuz, ya know, they try to get the last word in sometimes.

That spoiled his attractiveness for me.

See, that just confirms the willies he kind of gives me as a human being.

Hey Gail, you've got a sexy accent and you don't even know it! I've never heard an accent in someone from California, so I can't comment on that. Southern US accents are drool-worthy, but that's pretty much it for North America.
I'm pretty sure the Canadian accent isn't sexy either. Eh.

You're not a Southerner, Jim... just stating the obvious.

I am to Barb :-)

Barb Not by much ...

Now I need to hear a Canadian accent.

I can watch him as an actor, but I never want to know anything more about him as a human since I saw that Barbara Walter's special. Now, Clint Eastwood was pretty darn flirty with Barbara!


message 41: by Misha (new)

Misha (ninthwanderer) Yeah, I'll still watch something he's in if a movie comes on TV, but I no longer consider myself a fan.


message 42: by ms.petra (new)

ms.petra (mspetra) well you all are ruining it for me ::sighs:: please tell me he is not another Mel Gibson!


message 43: by Misha (new)

Misha (ninthwanderer) He is not Mel Gibson. His first wife apparently made allegations of abuse in a book she wrote, but he's been married to his second wife since the early 70s and she's never made any allegations that he hit her. Make of that what you will.

Connery's more of a dinosaur, and the hitting women thing seems to be part and parcel of his idea of what it means to be a manly man. It's certainly part of the James Bond narrative through the Connery and Moore eras - Bond doesn't hesitate to smack a woman around if he needs information, or if she's obstructing him from something he needs for his mission.

If the allegations made against Gibson end up being true, I think there's something very different going on there.


message 44: by Jonathan (new)

Jonathan Lopez | 4728 comments I wasn't aware that Sean Connery had made those comments. That's really a shame.
