Way back when when James Bond was James Bond, and way before many of the new generations who watch the franchise even knew what a film was, Sean Connery, the bonnie Scott, portrayed the 007 spy character. Connery was an honorary (say that ten times fast) Bond who threw his weight around and didn’t mind if he slapped the face of a Bond girl here and there. Turns out while cameras weren’t rolling, Connery was pitching temper tantrums.
As per The Independent UK, After starring in five James Bond movies, Sean Connery quit the role that had defined his career. When shooting 1967’s You Only Live Twice, the 007 actor was far from happy. The Scottish legend became bored with the role, especially due to what he saw as a lack of character development across the films.
According to The Telegraph, Connery was getting fed up with the fan attention he was getting as a huge celebrity. During the filming of You Only Live Twice in Japan, the Bond star was followed into a public bathroom by a photographer and repeatedly pursued by a stalker. Understandably, both encounters left him furious.
Additionally, Connery was not exactly getting on with 007 producers Cubby Broccoli and Harry Saltzman. With tensions at an all-time high, their fights became so bad that the Bond star would refuse to leave his trailer if Cubby was on set.
