The Glorious True Face of James Bond Comes to Light

Remember when we all had some major funzies peeping what Batman, er, Bruce Wayne's true face looked like? Well, another fictional gent of debonair composure has now been exposed... This time, it's Bond, James Bond.

Unlike some heroes of his blockbuster caliber, Bond isn't in the global villain decimation game for popularity's sake. And all he needs in the way of costuming is a ridiculously well-tailored tuxedo, a shaken-not-stirred martini in his left hand and the keys to the latest automotive miracle of Her Majesty's Secret Service in his right (or a Walther PPK; that'll work also).

Why Can't My New Year's Eve Be Like the Movies?

When Harry Met Sally MGM

Ah, New Year's Eve — a magical evening filled with champagne, kisses at the stroke of midnight and, of course, a fresh start to the year ahead. Too bad in real life it's so much more often filled with overpriced dinners, obnoxious drunks and broken resolutions. (Yes, we often do manage to break our resolutions before even crawling into bed.) In other words, New Year's Eve almost always blows … yet somehow in the movies it's so damn perfect. Get More »

And what does he think of its star, Daniel Craig?Has he surpassed Sean Connery as the gold standard of Bond? Get More »

Diane Cliento, the flaxen-haired Australian actress best known for starring in the 1963 hit "Tom Jones," (a role which earned her an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress) has died at age 78 after a long battle with illness.

The star was born into a medical family in Mooloolaba, Queensland, in 1933, but picked up and moved to London to train at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London in the 1950s. Her talent and stunning looks added up to success, and she quickly began to land work both on stage and in film.

In 1963, she married Sean Connery and gave birth to their son, Jason, before the couple split about a decade later. Then, in 1985 she married writer Anthony Schaffer, who penned "The Wicker Man," a film in which Cliento also appeared, The Hollywood Reporter recounts. Get More »
