Actor Sir Sean Connery has been honoured in Hollywood with the American Film Institute's annual lifetime achievement award in Los Angeles.
Sir Sean Connery rose to fame playing James Bond
The former James Bond star was cheered by director George Lucas and actor Mike Myers at the Kodak Theatre ceremony.
Sir Sean is the 34th recipient of the award, which is the Institute's highest honour for a career in film.
Past recipients include Bette Davis, Alfred Hitchcock, Sidney Poitier, Elizabeth Taylor and Clint Eastwood.
Sir Sean, who also starred in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, The Hunt for Red October and The Untouchables, thanked the audience.
"I got my big break when I was five years old, and it's taken more than 70 years to realise it," he said.
"At five I learned to read, and I would not be standing here without the books, plays and scripts."
Speaking before the ceremony, Star Wars director Lucas parised Sir Sean, saying he was "extremely professional" and "very talented".
