You can't help it.
From the steel beast jaws to the man with the golden touch, these are the five Bond villains we’d most like to drink with — carefully, of course.
Ernst Stavro Blofeld
You Only Live Twice (1967) (multiple movies)
The gold standard to which all cinematic arch-villains have been measured since, Blofeld's iconic bald head, facial scar and cat fancy are so culturally ingrained that actor Mike Myers boldfaced copied him for his own memorable Austin Powers villain, Dr. Evil.
The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), Moonraker (1979)
Jaws is both (technically) a henchman and the least obvious Martini drinking partner: Steel teeth and super strength make short work of cocktail glasses. But Jaws’ disinterest in speaking guarantees he’s a great listener. Also, if you have a few too many, he'll definitely be able to carry you to a cab.
Dr. No (1962)
Not the most outwardly charming mad scientist — poisonous spiders and nuclear ambitions come to mind — Dr. No winds up on our list for building his dream lair on a beautiful Caribbean island. We assume that if his architects could handle a nuclear reactor, they also built a decent home bar with a sunset view.
