Bond - Honor Blackman Slams Sean Connery Over Tax
Former Bond girl Honor Blackman has taken aim at her Goldfinger co-star Sir Sean Connery, insisting she "strongly disapproves" of his decision to leave the U.K. for financial reasons.
Connery, who lives in the Bahamas, has previously attracted accusations he's living as a 'tax exile' even though documents prove he's paid $5.9 million (£3.7 million) to the British government since 1997.
Blackman, who played 007's love interest Pussy Galore in the 1964 blockbuster, has now spoken out to slam Connery for accepting a knighthood while choosing to reside overseas.
She tells Britain's Seven magazine, "I disapprove of him strongly now... Because I don't think you should accept a title from a country and then pay absolutely no tax towards it. He wants it both ways. I don't think his principles are very high."
