Not many have expected ex-Bond Sean Connery to pose nude for a picture, but now a previously unseen photograph of the 007 star has emerged in which he's wearing nothing but an underwear.

The black and white picture was bought from a private collection and shows the legendary star on the set of 1963 Bond flick 'From Russia With Love' wearing a skimpy pair of white underpants.

The picture in question was bought by Graham Rye, editor of Bond fanzine 007 magazine, from a collector, reports Contactmusic.

Now, Rye is more than happy to share this rare image with the public and has published it for the first time since it was taken.

"It's not the sort of picture you would expect to see of him (Connery), even then, and hopefully he will see this again and have a good laugh," he said.
