Legendary American gossip columnist LIZ SMITH loved interviewing SEAN CONNERY - because he had no clothes on.
The quick-talking writer remembers meeting the JAMES BOND star - because he left such an impression.
She says, "I interviewed him on the set of THUNDERBALL. As I was ushered into the room where the incredibly sexy Connery was being massaged, he sat up and the tiny towel slipped of his loins. "He was as unselfconscious as a beautiful animal."
And years later, when the movie legend rang Liz to complain about something she had written, he angrily said, "I would like to stick your column up your a**." To which she replied, "That's the best offer I've had all day."
