What is so striking about Scottish actor Sean Connery, a.k.a. Bond, James Bond, is probably that he appears bare-chested much more often than any other actor playing James Bond. There might be a reason. Could it be that he embodies some perfect version of what physical manliness can be ? Hairy and muscled without being too animal or too muscular, neither skinny nor plump, simply perfectly manly in a way old generation women and new ones might love it. And men.
