Barbara Bach - Bond Girl: Anya Amasova “Agent Triple X” ('The Spy Who Loved Me,' 1977)
In "The Spy Who Loved Me," Barbara Bach played Anya Amasova—a Russian agent who teamed up with Roger Moore’s 007 to stop another plot for world domination. At the time, film critic John Simon said that Bach “may just be the most beautiful woman to ever enter the Bondian universe.” But Bach had fewer kind words for her co-star, calling Bond “a chauvinist pig who uses girls to shield him against bullets.” Grossing $185.4 million worldwide, the movie reignited the Bond franchise—but Bach’s career didn’t exactly catch fire. She appeared in Playboy throughout the ‘70s and ‘80s (and, again in 2008) and married Ringo Starr in 1981, with whom she appeared in the eminently forgettable Caveman. (Photo: MGM)
