I knew Sean,” said the 75-year-old. “I had met him years ago. My boyfriend at the time was [film producer] Jerome Hellman who was friends with Sean. We were invited to dinner at his house and I remember him being fun. He was very magnetic. He was very charismatic and we just had a terrific evening. I felt so comfortable with him. I was completely at ease. So when I saw Sean walking through the lobby on the first day on set, I was delighted. I was a nervous wreck so I felt like I at least had one friend.

According to Wood, Connery was no-nonsense when it came to filming as he yearned to dedicate his free time to golf. Para entonces, Connery had grown weary of playing the British secret agent and feared he wasn’t being taken seriously despite his dramatic performances in Alfred Hitchcock’sMarnieand Sidney Lumet’sThe Hill.

He had such a dedication to golf,” ella dijo. “quiero decir, I knew he liked it, but every day?”

But their on-screen chemistry proved to be the real deal, said Wood who claimed they had a brief, private fling. She chuckled when told how fellow Bond girl Barbara Carrera gushed to Fox News en 2020 about Connery beingan absolutely great kisseron the set of 1983’sNever Say Never Again.

Despite her attraction to Connery, Wood claimed it was she who ended their affair.

At the time I had a really lovely relationship with Leslie Bricusse,” she recalled. “Leslie had gone back to London. And I just felt that I really had to tell Sean that this relationship would not continue because I was very much in love with Leslie Bricusse. I thought Sean was absolutely wonderful, but I couldn’t see him anymore. I had to tell him. So when I told him, él dijo, ‘I understand completely.’ And that was it. We were in the hallway leading to the casino getting ready to shoot. And I walked away. I finished the take and then went back to hair and makeup.

I just needed him to know,” Wood continuó. “And then many years later, all of a sudden, caí en la cuenta. He probably thought, ‘What a silly girl! Por supuesto, we weren’t going to have a relationship.’ I just thought it was funny that I had to say something to him. But I had to be honest with him.

Despite the film’s iconic status, Wood admitted that she felt typecast after playing O’Toole.

Very much so,” Ella explicó. “I was always just the sexy bad girl. So I was delighted to play an Irish indentured servant on a Disney film. That was lovely.

En 1972, Wood appeared inJustin Morgan Had a Horse,” which was based on a children’s historical novel. It starred Don Murray, R.G. Armstrong, Whit Bissel and Gary Crosby among others.

Everybody used to ask me at the time that I was filming, ‘Do they know you were in Playboy magazine?’ Do they know you were a Bond girl?’ It didn’t matter. I was thrilled to do it because it was another character to play.

Despite her success as an actress, Wood’s life wasn’t easy in recent years. En abril 2017, Inside Edition reported she was homeless and staying in a motel room outside of Los Angeles with her daughter Evan, her son-in-law, three grandchildren, and two dogs.

We’re just an average family and we always do the best we can,” ella dijo. “I have a little house with dogs and cats. Everybody’s good.

When asked if growing up, she ever felt overshadowed by her famous sibling, Wood replied that the answer wasn’t so simple.

Natalie passed away in 1981 a la edad 43.

I looked at Natalie’s life and she was always concerned about where she was going, how she looked, who she was going to be with,” said Wood. “There’s this party, this premiere and this press agent. And boy, I didn’t want that… It isn’t that my mother compared us vocally. It’s just that she was very involved with Natalie and not with me. Pero mirando hacia atrás, I must say it may have been a very good thing.
