James Bond star Sean Connery turns 90 today, and fans all over the world are joining in wishing him a happy birthday! Sean Connery has definitely lived up to the status of being an icon (and sex symbol) in his near-century on Earth - most notably helping to pioneer the James Bond movie franchise (and the entire spy film genre, along with it). However, Connery's list of achievements on the screen runs much deeper than his seven Bond films: He's done everything from classic films (Macbeth), Oscar-worthy dramatic work (The Untouchables) to some of the most famous action/adventure flicks (The Rock), not to mention all kinds of cult-hit favorites (Time Bandits, Highlander, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Entrapment, Finding Forrester) - and of course, a few famous geek genre duds (The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, The Avengers).
In that sense, it's no surprise to see Sean Connery getting so much love on his 90th birthday.
With Love, From Fans

Even Cool at Breakfast
Happy Birthday to a wonderful actor and my favourite James Bond, who even managed to make ordering breakfast one of the coolest things I’d ever seen. My first Bond and the reason I became a fan, he’ll always hold that number one spot for me. #SeanConnery pic.twitter.com/YfNM1BNSyr— Carly (@007_CJBond) August 25, 2020
In a weird way, that's somehow some of the highest praise you can earn: making ordering breakfast look cool.prevnext
From Scotland, With Love
And let's certainly not forget all the love that Sean Connery has inspired as a proud son (and activist) of his homeland, Scotland.prevnext
Impossibly Handsome Icon
Many Happy Returns and 90th Birthday wishes to the IMPOSSIBLY handsome #SeanConnery
One of the few true movie stars. He can stand silently in a crowded room on screen and still command everyone’s attention. An iconic performer. pic.twitter.com/YQYmc7GvWZ— Calvin Dyson (@calvindyson) August 25, 2020
