Sean Connery Collects Cinema’s Top Honor

Scottish star Sean Connery was thrilled to be honored with The American Film Institute’s lifetime achievement award last night, especially when comedian Mike Myers appeared sporting a kilt as a tribute.

The legendary James Bond actor arrived at Hollywood’s Kodak Theatre to collect the gong as a galaxy of stars, including George Lucas, Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford cheered him on.

Connery told the crowd, “I got my big break when I was five years old, and it’s taken more than 70 years to realize it.

“At five I learned to read, and I would not be standing here without the books, plays and scripts.”

Myers quipped, “Men want to be him, women want him, and in my case I both want to be him and want him.”
