Sean Connery made "crazy" love to his the woman who would later become his wife 24 hours after they first met.
Sir Sean Connery, 82 embarked on a passionate affair with French artist Micheline Roquebrune while still married to Australian actress Diane Cilento, and Micheline will never forget their first time between the sheets.
Describing their first romantic tryst in March 1972 in France's Gala magazine, Micheline wrote: "The key is in the door. He's reading a newspaper, lying down, naked. In one step, I jump on the bed, undo my leather belt and pretend to whip him with it while dancing.
"He grabs hold of me and kisses me passionately. Almost brutally. Animalistically. His skin releases a scent, not of hot sand, but more like Silex, a warm and intoxicating smell like stones rubbing against each other. I'm transported.
"The four days that follow, we continue to play golf like strangers then we meet to make love like crazy people. The reality is even better than the fantasy. No man has ever had this effect on me."
Micheline went on to recount how it was love at first sight when the pair first met at the Mohammedia golf club in Morocco.
She said: "For the whole world, he's a huge star, but for me, he is, above all, the man of my dreams."
Once back home the pair returned to their respective partners and Micheline didn't hear from Sean until two years later, when she received a message inviting her to join him in Marbella, Spain.
She explained: "[I think to myself] 'Who does he think he is?' ... [But once there] he locks his eyes on mine and says, 'I've missed you ... I can't stop thinking about you and I can't forget you.' "
