Too blond! Too short! Too not Connery/Moore/Lazenby/Dalton/Brosnan!
What’s oh-so-much-easier to wrap your head around is the fact that the actor won the world over when he made a splash in those now-famous light blue swim trunks he wore in Casino Royale.
A star was born in that moment of cinematic glory.
And now that iconic piece of swimwear has gone to highest bidder.
Yep, the trunks were sold for almost $72,000 at a charity auction in London last week – and I am sure they fetched that much because of what Judi Dench said about them at the event.
“All I’m going to tell you is they’re unwashed,” she teased as she introduced the item.
Now that’s how you sell.
Skyfall, a.k.a. the next 007 adventure – with Craig once again branding that license to kill he’s earned – is set to arrive in theaters on Nov. 9. Keep your eyes peeled for another piece of his wardrobe you’d like to see hit the auction block in the future.
