LONDON (March 12) - Sean Connery has undergone surgery for a kidney tumor and is now recovering at home, his spokesman said Sunday.
The 75-year-old Scottish actor underwent surgery a few weeks ago in New York and is recuperating at his house in the Bahamas, spokesman James Barron said.
"He's very fit - he's 100 percent plus," Barron said of the former James Bond actor, who won an Academy Award in 1988, as best supporting actor, for his performance in "The Untouchables." In 2000, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II.
Connery told The Sunday Times that he "was opened in five places."
His brother, Neil, told the newspaper that "as far as I'm led to believe, the tumor was benign. He seems to be quite upbeat about it."
