Sean Connery, "James Bond" star turns 90, spotted in public for first time in three years

Even with his thick, trademark eyebrows hidden by a pair of shades there is no mistaking the superstar smile of Sean Connery.

The man who James Bond fans say has never been bettered as 007 turned 90 on Tuesday, August 25, 2020,  and will be celebrating away from the glare of the cameras.

Not seen out in public for three years, Connery has become a virtual recluse, determined to have nothing to do with show business or the fictional spy who made him both rich and famous.

He rarely leaves a gated community in the Bahamas where he lives in splendid retirement with his second wife Micheline Roquebrune.
To celebrate the industry titan, Hollywood stars offered up birthday wishes.

"Happy 90th birthday Sir Sean Connery," wrote fellow Bond star Pierce Brosnan on Instagram alongside a black-and-white photo of himself posing with Connery. "I was eleven years old in 1964, just off the plane from Ireland when I saw 'Goldfinger' at the ABC cinema on Putney high street. You were my Bond of inspiration."

The official Twitter account for the Bond franchise shared a montage of some of Connery's finest moments in the films.

"Happy Birthday to our original 007, Sean Connery, who turns 90 today. With love from [producers] Michael [G. Wilson], Barbara [Broccoli], everyone at EON and all your fans."

In total, Connery appeared in seven Bond films: "Dr. No," "From Russia with Love," "Goldfinger," "Thunderball," "You Only Live Twice," "Diamonds are Forever" and "Never Say Never Again."
