Wine-loving actor SIR Sean Connery refused to give up his favourite drink - even when doctors advised him to quit boozing.
The former James Bond star was warned to stop drinking alcohol after medics diagnosed a heart condition.
But he refused to give up red wine - because he is convinced it is good for his health.
He tells Wine Spectator magazine, "I do drink red wine because of my friend David Murray, who owns two French wine estates. He showed me the evidence that it was good for the health.
"I favour Merlots from Chile for their value and I keep a good deal of California wine in my cellar. I have one that cost me $2,000 for two cases, which I think is rather steep."
