Sir Roger Moore, the handsome British actor known for playing James Bond in such films as "Live and Let Die" and "The Spy Who Loved Me," has a memoir coming out in the fall.

"The time is right to tell my story," the 80-year-old Moore, whose book is called "My Word Is My Bond," said in a statement released Tuesday by publisher HarperCollins.

Moore will not only write about his work on the Bond films, but his friendship with Audrey Hepburn, his encounters with Cary Grant, Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor and other stars, and his struggles with his health.

"For the first time, he will share his recollections of playing some of the worlds most famous roles, his fears of serious illness, including his own bout with prostate cancer (which he beat), and how his neighbor Audrey Hepburn got him involved in UNICEF, a charity he is still involved with today," according to HarperCollins.
