Sean Connery's pissed off letter to Steve Jobs after Steve tried to make Connery the Apple spokesperson:
Steve Jobs, a lifelong fan of James Bond (he’d originally wanted to name the revolutionary computer “Double-O-Mac”), instructed his agency to begin work on a special celebrity Christmas ad featuring 007 himself, Sean Connery — even though Connery had yet to be signed.
An exasperated Sean Connery gives Steve Jobs a piece of his mind.
“The ad was of dubious quality, clearly not one of the agency’s finer moments,” says Woods.
Though Steve had a thing for Sean Connery, the feeling was not mutual. Connery was appalled by the “advert” Jobs sent across the pond and declined to participate in the misadventure on at least three separate occasions.
Connery’s final rejection was accompanied by a note revealing one mightily peeved film star (see letter on right).
