James Bond star George Lazenby quit role after one film to ‘get laid’

The actor, who was Bond in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service in 1969, said he walked away from the franchise after just one film to “get laid”.

He said playing the secret agent in the 1960s was a turn off for women who wanted men in bell-bottom trousers and flowered shirts.

They never thought that I could have walked away from it.

“My manager told me James Bond was over.

“Easy Rider was in, hippies were in.

“People were going around in bell-bottom trousers and flowered shirts and I was going around in a suit.

“I’d walk into a restaurant and people would stare. Way out of date, you know?

“That wasn’t rebellion – that was to get laid!”

After quitting as Bond he struggled for roles and appeared in several steamy Emmanuelle flicks in the 90s.

The twice-wed dad-of-five, whose second wife was US tennis player Pam Shriver, 56, said he does not think he will “be with another woman” in his lifetime even though his pals insist “girls still come on” to him.
