Sean Connery turns 90. Yes, you read that correctly

The very first James Bond turned 90 on Tuesday, as challenging as that is to feel.

It’s accurate: Connery was born August 25, 1930, in Edinburgh, Scotland.

The beloved actor, who starred as Agent 007 in the 1st Bond movie “Dr. No” in 1962, has not been on the Hollywood radar for years, but that will not signify he is not even now a big star.

Social media celebrated his milestone birthday and The Guardian’s Peter Bradshaw celebrated the actor and his career in a piece headlined “Sean Connery at 90: a dangerously seductive icon of masculinity.”

“As a great deal as the Beatles, it was Connery’s charismatic Bond who saved alive Britain’s postwar amour-propre,” Bradshaw writes. “Does Britain show up to be waning pathetically on the planet phase? Oh no. Britain is continue to impressive — but in key, you see, like 007.”

Connery’s career extended a lot much more past the seven Bond movies in which he starred.

He also appeared in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1964 traditional movie “Marnie “and gained a very best supporting actor Academy Award for his position in the 1987 mob/criminal offense film “The Untouchables.”

His final credited position was voicing the main character in the 2012 animated movie “Sir Billi.”

In 2003 Connery gave an job interview to Michael Parkinson and reported he and his spouse, Micheline Roquebrune, then in their 70s, “felt closer to three [years old].”

“Factors occur out in the paper and people today speak about the ‘elderly’ and what have you and they are in their sixties,” Connery explained. “Effectively where does that set us?”
