Probably the leggiest movie star to hit Hollywood in a big way is a Texas-born beauty named “Rosie”.
Her real name is Dugesiella Lentzi and she happens to be a real, live tarantula. She’s already had bit parts in several movies.
Here, in a scene from, Dr. No, the sinister-looking insect appears to be doing a good job
of scaring the daylights out of actor, Sean Connery, who portrays the famous British Secret Service agent, James Bond.
“Rosie” was planted on the pillow by Bond’s arch enemy Dr. No.
Talk about strange bedfellows!
