George Lazenby as Bond....
  Producers of the James Bond movies had some anxious moments when they hired George Lazenby to replace Sean Connery as the dashing 007---but then worried that he might be gay! 
  So they sent a girl up to his apartment to find out----and were reassured to discover that that he wasn't. 
  Lazenby, who had been a model and featured in television commercials before making his Bond debut in the 1969 release On Her Majesty's Secret Service, recalled: "They sent a girl up to my apartment to make sure I wasn't gay. A little while later they had their answer. I sure as hell wasn't."

 As the role brought stardom and numerous admirers, the actor went on to become known as the most notorious womaniser of all the Bond actors.
 "Suddenly I was James Bond and you can imagine what that did to me. I didn't want to brag but I had at least one girl a day," he said.
 "There was a tent on set where the stuntmen used to keep mattresses they fell on in fight scenes and it was a good place to take a chick if you were in a hurry.".
His comments come in the documentary Everything Or Nothing, which chronicles the 50-year history of 007 and has been produced to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the first Bond movie Dr No.
