The top secret ceremony itself took place in Sydney, Australia, the home town of Whishaw’s new husband.

    “Ben has never hidden his sexuality, but like many actors he prefers not to discuss his family or life outside of his work,” said a source close to the couple. “Due to speculation, I can confirm that Ben and Mark entered into a civil partnership in August 2012. They were proud to do so and are very happy.

    So production could begin sooner than later? Could this mean that Mendes signed up secretly to Bond 24 and Bond 25 way before ‘Skyfall’ finished production? Has the recent Mendes news all just been a very brilliant publicity stunt by EON? More news will be revealed soon, so keep checking back for more updates.

  8. All 6 Bond actors for Oscar Tribute?

    3bonds1As a special Bond segment has been already been confirmed for this years Oscar Ceremony, Bond fans could very well be in for another brilliant treat. According to Daily Record, all 6 James Bond actors are set to take to the stage to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of James Bond. Speaking to an unknown Oscar source, the news came in that Sir Sean Connery may even make an appearance.

    “Sir Sean has been invited to take to the stage along with Daniel and the other 007s. As yet, we’ve not had a no from him. Normally he is quick to turn things down.

    “Sean’s relationship with the Oscars is good and we’re hoping he’ll appear.

    “His issues with the Bond producers are not our business and we hope he will overlook that as we pay tribute to what he has done.

    “It would be magnificent to see him up there with the other actors – and quite a coup.”

    If true, then this will mark the first public appearance of all six James Bond actors, since Daniel Craig took over the role in 2005.
