In her new memoir, “Boys in the Trees,” Simon claims that in 1965, when she was 20, she and her 22-year-old sister, Lucy, met Connery aboard the SS United States traveling from England to New York.
The sisters became friends with the then-35-year-old actor, and after having drinks with him one night, met him in his cabin.
There, he proposed having the ménage-à-trois — or as one of Carly’s friends called it, a “Simon sisters sandwich,” the book says.
They turned him down.
Lucy, however, spent the following night with Connery, who was married to actress Diane Cilento at the time, and didn’t come back until 5:15 a.m. the next day, Carly Simon writes.
