Multimillionaire Sir Sean offers no financial help to sonJuly 20th, 2008 - 7:39 pm ICT by ANI
London, July 20 (ANI): Scottish actor Sean Connery does not believe in sharing his wealth with his own son.
The reason the once upon a time milkman of Edinburgh refused to let his son, Jason Connery, take advantage of his wealth was because he wanted his son to be able to stand on his own two feet, as revealed by his former wife.
Connerys former wife Diane Cilento said that the actor told their son several years ago that he would never receive a penny from him, as he wants him to pursue a career and earn his own living.
Connery, who now has a personal fortune of 85 million pounds, had very humble beginnings, and he grew up in a two-bedroom house in the industrial end of Edinburgh.
The family had no bathroom, only the use of a communal toilet outside. He had limited education, leaving school at 13 to go to work.
Even though it is clear that he would like his son to make it on his own, it is not known if Connery will include his son in his will.
I just dont have a comment, Times Online quoted Jason Connery as saying. (ANI)
