Former JAMES BOND icon SIR SEAN CONNERY is far from the best 007 - according to the man himself.
The modest 70-year-old film star is often voted the fans' choice for the best big screen special agent, but has shocked fans by saying he wasn't the best in the all-action role. Connery believes other actors, such as ROGER MOORE and PIERCE BROSNAN, are better in the part.
The Scotsman made his confession at the BERLIN FILM FESTIVAL, Germany, yesterday (18FEB01). He said, "I prefer to look at the others rather than myself." (RP/WNTST/MCM)
