This Tuesday, December 14, 2021, viewers will find Sean Connery, on C8 in the film Shalako. He, who was one of the greatest actors of his time, had a magnificent career and was able to raise millions of euros. A sum that the actor never wanted to share with his only son Jason, born of his marriage to actress Diane Cilento. The reason ? He wanted his son to make a name and a fortune without his help. He then decided to cut his food off: “I want Jason to earn a living on his own and not at the expense of his father,” he told the actor to the Daily Mail. “He doesn’t know what it’s like to have a hard time, but it’s not too late for him to learn life.”
His wife also supported this decision and she too had stopped the financial assistance she was giving to her son. “One day, Sean said to his son, ‘You are an actor because your name is Connery.’ To which Jason replied, ‘Well, I’m going to change my last name!’ But my ex-husband was very threatening: ‘If you do that, I will kill you’, “Diane Cilento told the Sunday Times in 2008. The two men could no longer discuss:” Jason loves him but Sean has problems with relationships, as with anyone who knows him. Jason is a very devoted son, when Sean is sick he goes to him. They play golf together, “Sean Connery’s ex-wife added .
