Throwback Thursday: Sean Connery on Slapping Women

In this interview with Sean Connery, Barbara Walters reminds him of a time he said, “It’s not the worst thing to slap a woman now and then.” Mr. Connery becomes seemingly agitated and goes on to describe when he thinks the situation “merits” a good open-handed smackdown. Essentially, Connery argues that if you’re having an argument and you’re trying to get the last word in and the woman won’t let you have it…then “it’s absolutely right.”

Obviously playing James Bond got to his head, so it’s only right that we watch a clip with some of 007’s more sexist moments:

      Agreed, I believe there was a big “keep the pimp hand strong” movement among his culture.

      The ass slap is to reward good behavior. The face slap is to punish bad behavior.

      The hand is always the mainstay, but there’s no reason you can’t switch it up and use a sack of oranges or a switch or something.

      “People say there’s no reason to hit a woman. There’s a reason to hit everybody. Just don’t do it. There’s a reason to push an old man down the stairs. Just don’t do it.”
