Australia’s one and solely James Bond, George Lazenby, now 80, has boasted about bedding a thousand girls in his 007 heyday after showing within the franchise’s 1969 movie.
The previous automobile salesman is the one Australian to have ever performed 007, with the coveted position his first-ever performing gig.
Speaking of his promiscuous life at that time, the 80-year-old told The Herald Sun on Sunday he has likely slept with more than a thousand women in his time, adding: ‘I would go through six girls a week in London.’
He added: ‘It was the time of the capsule, mini-skirts, the ladies had been loopy. You needed to run and conceal after some time.’
He stated the hearsay of him bedding a thousand girls was most probably true, explaining: ‘There wasn’t something higher to do. I do not know, I by no means counted but it surely went on from 1964 till 1980 when AIDS got here in. I did not wish to die for it.’
Describing one shocking sexual encounter on the 1969 film set, George said: ‘I was messing with the receptionist at the hotel in the stuntman’s tent and she [co-star Diana Rigg] was walking up the path and the boys lifted the side of the tent up and there I was on the job. That blew it with Diana and me’ he recalled.
