George Lazenby became the youngest person to play James Bond in 1969 at just 29.
And 50 years on from the Australian actor's one-off role as 007 in On Her Majesty's Secret Service, George claims it made him an instant hit with the ladies.
Now 80, he told The Herald Sun on Sunday he has likely slept with more than a thousand women in his time, adding: 'I would go through six girls a week in London.'
The former car salesman is the only Australian to have ever played 007, with the coveted role his first-ever acting gig.
Speaking of his promiscuous period abroad, George said: 'It was the time of the pill, mini-skirts, the girls were crazy. You had to run and hide after a while.'
He said the rumour of him bedding a thousand women was most likely true, explaining: 'There wasn't anything better to do. I don't know, I never counted but it went on from 1964 until 1980 when AIDS came in. I didn't want to die for it.'
However, the former male model's most astonishing sexual admission came from the set of the James Bond film.
'I was messing with the receptionist at the hotel in the stuntman's tent and she [co-star Diana Rigg] was walking up the path and the boys lifted the side of the tent up and there I was on the job. That blew it with Diana and me' he recalled.
The legendary star received a Golden Globe nomination for his portrayal of 007, but refused to make another Bond film as he thought the franchise was 'over'.
George previously told The Lady magazine that he had made the decision not to return for a second film, despite the misconception that he had been fired from the franchise.
'My manager told me James Bond was over,' he said.
