Heart patient Sean Connery refuses to give up red wine

London, Oct 11 (ANI): Veteran actor Sean Connery has refused to give up his favourite red wine even after been diagnosed with a heart condition.

The former James Bond star has been warned to stop drinking alcohol by medics but he refuses to give up, as he believes it is good for his health.

“I do drink red wine because of my friend David Murray, who owns two French wine estates. He showed me the evidence that it was good for the health,” the Daily Express quoted him as telling Wine Spectator magazine.

“I favour Merlots from Chile for their value and I keep a good deal of California wine in my cellar. I have one that cost me USD 2,000 for two cases, which I think is rather steep,” he added.

Meanwhile, the actor is likely to return as Professor Henry Jones in the fifth ‘Indiana Jones’ movie.

The Oscar winner had turned down the chance to reprise his role as the father of the daredevil archaeologist, played by Harrison Ford, in last movie ‘Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull’, which hinted that his character had passed away.

However, according to the sources, the movie execs are planning to bring Henry back. (ANI)

heartbroken maybe. He is an icon and it will be a shock when he eventually dies. Who know maybe this wine thing is better than his Drs' think. The medical research community are constantly waffling on what is good for ya.

Chief of Staff, 007's gone round the bend. Says someone's been trying to feed him a poisoned banana. Fellow's lost his nerve. Been in the hospital too long. Better call him home.

Yes, I always thought red wine was supposed to be good for the heart, in moderation of course.
