Britt Ekland recalls in a new interview that Bond movie producer Albert "Cubby" Broccoli put her on double rations on the set of "The Man With the Golden Gun" to give her a fuller figure.
The filmmaker first spotted the Swedish beauty in 1973's "The Wicker Man" and was so impressed with her curves he immediately hired her as his next Bond girl.

Ekland tells British magazine S, "Albert Broccoli, our producer, had seen me in 'The Wicker Man' and thought how voluptuous I was. What he didn't know -- and I didn't either at that time -- was that I was pregnant. So when I met up with him a year later to talk about the Bond role, he thought I'd got thin.
"He kept feeding me spaghetti. Every Saturday night, no matter where we were, we would find an Italian restaurant and he would give a dinner for the cast and crew. He always served me two servings."
