Original Bond girl Ursula Andress, who played Honey Ryder, is now 82 : See her through the years

Hey there, Honey!

It's been more than 50 years since Ursula Andress starred as the first-ever Bond girl, playing iconic bombshell Honey Ryder in 1962's "Dr. No" alongside Sean Connery. As hardcore Bond fans know, she actually returned to the franchise in 1967 for "Casino Royale" -- but Ursula became known for much more than the role that made her famous.

Ursula, who lists Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin among her A-list co-stars, was one of the most recognizable faces of the '60s, snagging role after role in blockbuster hits. And she was also known for her romantic exploits: The Swiss-born star dated James Dean just before his death, and later in life, she gave birth to Harry Hamlin's son.

Ursula is now 82 years old, and in recent years she's mostly stayed out of the spotlight. But she does make exceptions: In addition to occasional appearances at international film festivals, Ursula celebrated the 50th anniversary of "Dr. No" back in 2012.

Her most recent public appearance was in November 2017, where she looked ultra glamorous at a Rome Film Festival gala.

Take a look at Ursula's transformation in the gallery above.

Hollywood, California: Four talented young actresses (left to right) Debbie Maldow, Karen Balkin, Veronica Cartwright and Diane Mountford, take a refreshment break between scenes on a schoolroom set of The Children's Hour. Karen Balkin plays the role of Mary Tilford which is considered the best role written for a child and surely one of the most repellent. The film is being produced and directed by William Wyler.
