Bond, James Bond— in Goldfinger, played by Sean Connery
Like many people, I’ve had a love affair with James Bond for years. I only chose Goldfinger, because it was my very first Bond movie.
I mean, c’mon—who doesn’t love a suave, sophisticated and sexy secret agent? The character oozes charm and exceptional taste in everything, including his greatest passion: beautiful women.

But, what gives this classic movie character top marks in kickass confidence is Bond’s laser focus on his mission—to protect his country. This type of dedication takes guts and nerve, and that’s what I think I love the most about him.
Make no mistake: Bond is 007 first and foremost, with a license to kill—and, luckily for us–a license to thrill!
