Barbara Bach: Star beat dangerous addiction with Ringo Starr - 'We used to get deranged'

Sunday, June 26, 2022

As well as being famous for playing Anya Amasova in tonight’s Bond film, she is also known for her eventful marriage to The Beatles drummer Ringo Starr – who she has been in a relationship with since 1981. In the foreword to a 1992 book by Derek Taylor – the band’s press officer – called Getting Sober, Starr depicted their relationship as riddled with alcoholism.

Starr, who met Bach in 1980 on the set of the film Caveman, wrote: "We used to go on long plane journeys, rent huge villas, stock up the bars, hide and get deranged.

"I came to one Friday afternoon and was told by the staff that I'd trashed the house so badly they thought there had been burglars, and I'd trashed Barbara so badly they thought she was dead."
