A clip from Connery that interviewed Barbara Walters in 1987 was quickly put back into rotation.
“I do not like it [to slap a woman]“He said to Walters.
“I don’t think it’s that bad. I think it all depends on the circumstances and whether it deserves it. ”
The comments are further from an interview he gave Playboy in 1965.
“I don’t think hitting a woman is particularly wrong – although I don’t recommend doing it the way you would hit a man,” Connery said at the time, the year Thunderball was published.
“A slap in the face with open hands is justified when all other alternatives fail and there are many warnings.
“If a woman is a slut, or hysterical, or constantly bloody, then I would.”
In the 1987 interview, Walters pulled him on it. Had he changed his mind since then? Playboy was published?
Not at all, he said.
He would go on to say 20 years later that the comments were taken out of context, but it wasn’t the only dark side the public saw for Sir Sean.
His first Australian wife, Diane Cilento, claimed Connery abused her physically and mentally during their 11-year marriage.
Cilento, an actor, wrote in her 2006 autobiography that she believes Connery couldn’t handle the fame James Bond brought him.
She said he would get furious and beat her once in a hotel room in Spain until she was forced to lock herself in the bathroom for security reasons.
“I was a little drunk,” she said, remembering the incident The daily mail.
“When I was in our room in the dark, I felt a slap in the face and was thrown to the floor and passed out for a few seconds. Then I screamed, we both screamed. I got up and tried to fight back, but another blow let me fly.
“I managed to get through the bathroom door and lock myself in. I spent the rest of the night spread out on the bathroom floor, covered with towels and whimpered. ”
Her book claims Connery was jealous of her career, which came with the help of an Oscar nomination, and wanted her to become a homemaker.
He forced her to turn down roles and did not allow them to hire housekeeping – she was supposed to do all the housework herself.
They had a son, Jason, during their marriage.
Cilento died in 2011.
Connery married the French artist Micheline Roquebrune, who has never spoken of abuse by the actor.
