George Lazenby jokes Connery is too rich to bother with Oscars

24-Feb-2013 • Bond News

Former James Bond actor George Lazenby has joked that his predecessor in the famous 007 role is too rich now to bother turning up to the Academy Awards.

Speaking on BBC Radio 5Live, Lazenby said: "I’m not going to be at the Oscars. I don’t think they got that close to reuniting all the Bonds."

"I was at the 40th anniversary and Sean Connery didn’t show up, so why would he show up to the 50th?"

"He doesn’t need the money. I don’t think he could spend the money before he goes."
