Britt Eckland became famous first as the wife of comic genius Peter Sellers, whose troubled and unstable inner life eventually drove her away. Then she became a Bond girl and international sex symbol, and hooked up with one of the world’s biggest rock stars, Rod Stewart. Together, they led a life of wild excess, but true contentment eluded her under Rod’s reluctance to commit and wandering eye.
