Sean Connery’s widow Micheline confirms he was struggling with dementia

Rest in peace Sir Sean Connery!


From working as a milkman, a lorry driver and a coffin polisher in his young days, to being knighted in 2000, the first ever secret agent James Bond had an incredible life. Born to parents who were poor, he left school at the age of 13 to be able to work and help his family make ends meet.

Sean Connery, one of the most charming men on the planet, who was named the sexiest man alive twice by the People magazine, passed away at 90. He always won each battle on the screen, but lost the most important one just a few days ago when he left the world mourning him.

Sean, the 007 agent who played in seven Bond films and won an Academy Award for The Untouchables, once said that his favorite movie was From Russia with Love.

After playing James Bond, Sean maintained a very successful career and landed roles in a number of famous movies like  Alfred Hitchcock’s Marnie , The Hill, Murder on the Orient Express, The Man Who Would Be King, Highlander, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, The Hunt for Red October, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and a lot more.

Sean was married two times. In 1962, the actor married Diane Cilento with whom he had son Jason Connery, his only biological child. In 1975, he tied the knot with Micheline Roquebrune and stayed together with her until the rest of his life. Their relationship and marriage withstood time despite Sean’s well-documented love affair with Lynsey de Paul during the late ’80s.

Wife Micheline told Mail on Sunday that her husband was suffering from dementia and added how the condition affected his life.

“It was no life for him,” she said. “He was not able to express himself latterly. At least he died in his sleep and it was just so peaceful. I was with him all the time and he just slipped away. It was what he wanted,” she continued. “He had dementia and it took its toll on him. He got his final wish to slip away without any fuss.” 

Rest in peace Sir Sean Connery, you were a legend!
