    I remember at the time of it's release that the Bond Girl (Carole Bouquet) in For Your Eyes Only (1981) was rumored to be a transsexual, and even though her bio at IMDB states that she had a son with someone, I was wondering if there was any validity to these rumors.

    I only ask because Spike TV aired it tonight & I have to admit that she does have some rather..umm...androgenous features.

    Ah, I just answered my own question with just a bit more in-depth searching.

    HERE IS THE STORY, right movie, wrong girl.

    It was Caroline Cossey (aka Tula, born Barry Cossey); just as well for Roger Moore's image she wasn't his main love interest. It shows how inaccuracies spread and can do damage, e.g to Carole Bouquet. Actually i read Cossey's book in the 80's; in those days sex changes were less common. The guys who picked her for the film must have felt pretty embarrassed.

    Hey Jason, that's a nice pic but that isn't what she looked like in many scenes from the Bond film, I stick by my opinion.....maybe it was her wooden acting.[​IMG]

    BTW the rumor I heard was from back in 1981 at the time of the films release.
