What Is George Lazenby Net Worth and Earnings As James Bond Star?

According to Celebrity Net Worth, George Lazenby has a $20 million net worth.

To follow a woman he had fallen in love with, Lazenby relocated to London in 1963. He started selling used vehicles in Finchley and then sold new automobiles in Park Lane, where a talent scout noticed him and convinced him to become a model.

He rapidly made £25,000 yearly (equivalent to £515,00 today). He was well-known for appearing in a Fry's chocolate bars commercial, and he was named Top Model of the Year in 1966.

Producer Albert R. Broccoli and Lazenby first crossed paths in 1968 while getting their hair trimmed at the same barbershop after Sean Connery had retired from the James Bond role.

Nevertheless, even before the film's release, Lazenby had made up his mind he would not return to the Bond franchise, despite numerous people in his life urging him to do so. He did, however, occasionally reprise the role of Bond in various parodies and unofficial Bond productions, though not in full-length James Bond movies.

After Bond, he abandoned acting in favor of a variety of commercial and real estate ventures, presumably where the majority of his $20 million net worth comes from.

George Lazenby Recent Controversy Regarding His Comments on Recent Interview 

George Lazenby took part in The Music of James Bond, an Australian tour. It was the third show of a multi-city tour.

The 83-year-old Australian actor has been dropped from the concert tour's last leg after a significant response resulted from the tribute to the film franchise veering into unsettling terrain.

Perth audience members were offended by remarks and vivid anecdotes that they deemed "homophobic." Lazenby expressed his sadness at learning that his stories had offended some of his fans.

Only simply wanting to "share some anecdotes" and "entertain," he claimed. A second caller backed the actor to 6PR, who claimed that his stories were purposefully "exaggerated" for comedy effect.

The West Australian Symphony Orchestra provided live musical accompaniment for Lazenby. Lazenby's recollections, according to WASO, were "personal beliefs" that were "completely unacceptable."
