A debriefing from 007: Roger Moore has written a memoir.
In “One Lucky Bastard: Tales from Tinseltown,” Roger Moore recalls his friendships with everyone from Frank Sinatra to David Niven to Peter O’Toole. It’s a breezy memoir filled with amusing anecdotes, including a delicious one about Joan Collins.
The British actor writes that years ago, Collins was seeing Arthur Loew Jr. (from the Loew theater family) and was late for a ball. Her boyfriend, brooding about her punctuality, snapped, “You are f——- boring,” to which the future “Dynasty” gal immediately retorted, “And you are a boring f—!”
The octogenarian also recalls hanging out with Peter Sellers, who married his fourth and final wife, Lynne Frederick, when he was 52 and she was 23. Moore’s first encounter with her was when Sellers called Moore at his home in Tuscany, saying he was coming into a nearby port with his yacht and wanted to meet up.
When the ex-James Bond drove down to the harbor, he found Sellers leaning against the railing of the boat while “Lynne was busy massaging his member, which in turn was popping out of his swimming shorts to say hello.”

THE STAR WAS RATED PG
Even though as a teen he filmed a deflowering scene in “Almost Famous,” Patrick Fugit wasn’t quite so lucky in real life. The 31-year-old actor, who walked the red carpet for his latest film, “Gone Girl,” sadly admits life did not imitate art. “I wish,” he told [email protected] “I had a parental guardian, there for most of the time because I was underage. It was my mom, and she had a very keen eye and (director) Cameron Crowe didn’t want anybody messing with my virgin status.”
