And, despite several incarnations, there’s no denying this Blofeld, Pleasance’s Blofeld, is still seen as the archetype. No, I stand by my original eight – giving Sir Sean ownership of 50% of the most significant films in the series. We’re talking spaceships, the threat of nuclear Armageddon, armies of henchmen (all in lovely colour coded uniform), armies of ninjas, volcanic eruption and the greatest lair in cinema.
The cat, the baldness, the scar, the lack of stature have all entered into (pop) cultural lore. There is also the first truly bonkers villainous scheme, courtesy of SPECTRE.
She revealed the deformity to British magazine Heat, explaining, “I had a tail when I was born. Then they chopped it off and stole my tail.”Kate Bosworth belongs to a small group of people with heterochromia iridium – two different eye colors.
Other celebrities with the unique condition include Mila Kunis, Kiefer Sutherland and Elizabeth Berkley.
Just before piranha-ing Helga Brandt, Blofeld congratulates two Asian gentleman on their “superb equipment” (for anyone who giggled: their response is “we congratulate you, sir, on the way you handle it”).
There is also reference to a satisfied “government” – and Blofeld later tells Bond how a new power will emerge, which I assumed meant SPECTRE but may actually be the mysterious government. You Only Live Twice pioneers the silliness that soon became emblematic of the franchise. The most interesting thing about Kissy Suzuki is the fact she isn’t called Kissy Suzuki.
Now of course you shouldn’t make fun of them because of these things, just let them serve as a reminder that these men and women are just like the rest of us — except maybe a little wealthier. Funnyman Damon Wayans was born with a clubbed foot, a fairly common birth defect affecting nearly one in 1,000 people.
As a child he underwent surgery to have the foot corrected, but before then he used to be teased by other kids because of the deformity.
Twenty-seven year old Ke$ha was born with a vestigial tail.
Also a terrible offender of ‘why don’t you just shoot him! I always thought SPECTRE were the sole baddies here.
But rewatching the film I realised this isn’t the case.
She is one of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood, As a child, Aniston lived in Greece for a year with her family.
They then moved to Eddystone, Pennsylvania, where they lived with her grandmother Stella Anastassakis in a three-bedroom home.
