James Bond

Australian actor, George Lazenby, who became the youngest person to play James Bond in 1969 at 29-year-old has revealed he slept with a lot of women when he was in his prime. 

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.”

Speaking of his promiscuous life at that time, George, who is the only Australian to have ever played 007, said: “It was the time of the pill, mini-skirts, the girls were crazy. You had to run and hide after a while.”

The legendary star said the rumour of him bedding a thousand women was most likely true, explaining: “There wasn’t anything better to do. I don’t know, I never counted but it went on from 1964 until 1980 when AIDS came in. I didn’t want 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.
