Queen Elizabeth II and James Bond Parachute Into Olympic Stadium
Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle came up with plenty of eye-catching visuals for the opening ceremony of the London summer Olympics, but none more surprising than enlisting Queen Elizabeth II herself for a James Bond adventure alongside 007 star Daniel Craig. The highlight was the moment that the superspy and the unflappable 86-year-old monarch appeared to parachute into the stadium from a helicopter. Who knew that the queen had such a sense of humor -- or was such a badass?
