Connery Eating 'Non-stop' On His Birthday

Subscribe to Sean Connery alerts

SIR Sean Connery is celebrating his 80th birthday by eating treats "non-stop" to bulk up again after losing weight in a recent health scare.
The former James Bond star turns 80 on Wednesday (25Aug10) and plans to spend the day with his wife Micheline and 15 loved ones at his home in the Bahamas.
The Hollywood legend has been lying low in recent months after undergoing surgery on his shoulder - but he insists he's on the mend and will spend his landmark special day indulging in his favourite foods.
He tells Britain's Daily Record, "I'm swimming every day and I'm even trying to get the golf swing working again - but that might take a little bit longer. During the summer, I wasn't in pain, but I wasn't feeling great. I came to the Edinburgh Film Festival in June then when I left for the south of France, I realised I'd lost a bit of weight and needed to change my regime.
"I've done that and the last few days have been pretty special with the family here. We've eaten non-stop and it has been a great celebration."
