Pierce Brosnan ;Updated Biography

Pierce's Bio

source;

WWW.piercebrosnan.com

Brosnan was born in County Meath, Ireland and moved to London at age 11. At 20, he enrolled in drama school and while in London, performed in several West End stage productions including Franco Zeffirelli’s “Fulimena” and Tennessee Williams’ “The Red Devil Battery Sign” at the York Theater Royal. Before landing the role of James Bond, Brosnan had achieved worldwide recognition as private investigator Remington Steele on the popular television series of the same name. He lives in California and Hawaii with his wife Keely Shaye and their two children Dylan and Paris.

PIERCE BROSNAN is recognized internationally as one of the most dashing and skilled dramatic actors in Hollywood today. In 2005, Brosnan received a Golden Globe® Award nomination for Best Performance by an Actor for his role as Julian Noble in the critically acclaimed film “The Matador.”

Brosnan recently completed filming "Marriage," written and directed by Ira Sacks. Co-Starring Chris Cooper, Patricia Clarkson and Rachel McAdams, “Marriage” is a 1940s-set drama about a married man who cheats; to spare his wife the shame of a divorce, he plots to kill her.

In addition to his work in front of the camera, Brosnan has always had an interest in the art of filmmaking. Having achieved international stardom as an actor, Brosnan expanded the range of his film work by launching his own production company, Irish DreamTime in 1996, along with producing partner Beau St. Clair.

Apart from “The Matador,” Irish DreamTime has produced four films to date: "The Nephew” (1998), “The Thomas Crown Affair” (1999), “Evelyn” (2002) and “Laws of Attraction” (2004). The company's first studio project, “The Thomas Crown Affair,” was a critical and box-office success and one of the best-reviewed and highest-grossing romantic thrillers in years. “Evelyn,” directed by Bruce Beresford, opened to critical acclaim at the Toronto and Chicago Film Festivals and also garnered rave reviews. “Laws of Attraction,” a romantic comedy, which teamed Brosnan with Julianne Moore, focused on dueling divorce attorneys who fall in love.

In early 2007, look for Irish DreamTime’s sixth production “Shattered” in which Brosnan stars with Maria Bello and Gerard Butler. The psychological thriller, centers on a happy couple with a seemingly perfect life whose daughter is abducted. Over the course of a day, the kidnapper dismantles the family's lives with brutal efficiency.

Perhaps best known worldwide as James Bond, Brosnan reinvigorated the popularity of the Bond legacy in box-office blockbusters such as “Goldeneye” (1995), “Tomorrow Never Dies” (1999), “The World Is Not Enough” (1999) and “Die Another Day” (2002). Brosnan's first three Bond films earned over a billion dollars at the international box-office. His most recent Bond film, “Die Another Day,” was the most successful Bond film ever, garnering nearly a half-billion dollars worldwide. In addition to his four Bond films, three other Brosnan film -- “The Thomas Crown Affair,” “Dante's Peak” (1997) and “The Lawnmower Man” (1992) have earned hundreds of millions of dollars internationally, cementing him as one of the world’s most bankable stars.

Brosnan's other film credits include John Boorman's critically acclaimed film from the John LeCarre novel, “The Tailor of Panama” (2001), Bruce Beresford's “Mr. Johnson” (1990) and Sir Richard Attenborough's “Grey Owl” (1999). In addition to “The Matador,” Brosnan has also shown his comedic skills in such films as “Mrs. Doubtfire” (1993) and “Mars Attacks!” (1996). He also had a supporting role alongside Barbra Streisand in “The Mirror Has Two Faces” (1996).

Some of his many accolades include a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2002 Chicago Film Festival, the International Star of the Year at the Cinema Expo in Amsterdam, an Honorary Doctorate of Arts from the Dublin Institute of Technology, an Honorary Doctorate from the University College Cork and an Order of the British Empire bestowed by Her Majesty the Queen.

Personal life

source; www.wikipedia.org

Brosnan married Australian actress Cassandra Harris in 1980 and adopted her two children, Charlotte (born 27 November 1971) and Christopher (born October 6, 1972) after their father died in 1986. Brosnan and Harris had one son together, Sean (birth 13 September 1983). Harris died of ovarian cancer in 1991. In 2001, Brosnan married American journalist Keely Shaye Smith,  and they have two sons together, Dylan Thomas Brosnan (birth 13 January 1997) and Paris Beckett Brosnan (birth 27 February 2001).

Brosnan supported John Kerry in the 2004 Presidential election and is a vocal supporter of gun control and same-sex marriage. An outspoken environmentalist, Brosnan was named 'Best-dressed Environmentalist' in 2004 by the Sustainable Style Foundation.Brosnan first became aware of nuclear disarmament at the age of nine when worldwide condemnation of the 1962 U.S. nuclear tests in Nevada headlined international news.

 During the 1990s, he participated in news conferences in Washington, D.C. to help Greenpeace draw attention to the issue.Brosnan boycotted the French GoldenEye premiere to support Greenpeace's protest against the French nuclear testing program. From 1997 to 2000, Brosnan and wife Smith worked with the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and Internationa l Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) to stop a proposed salt factory from being built at Laguna San Ignacio. The couple with Halle Berry, Cindy Crawford and Daryl Hannah successfully fought the Cabrillo Port Liquefied Natural Gas facility that was proposed off the coast of Malibu and would cause damage to the marine life there; the State Lands Commission eventually denied the lease to build the terminal. in May 2007, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed the facility. Brosnan is also listed as a member of the Sea Shepherd's Board of Advisors.

Brosnan also raises money for charitable causes through sales of his paintings. He trained early on as an artist, but later shifted to theatre; during his first wife's terminal illness, he withdrew from acting to be with her and took up painting again for therapeutic reasons, producing colorful landscapes and family portraits. He has continued painting since then, using spare time on set and at home. Profits from sales of giclée prints of his works are given to a trust to benefit "environmental, children's and women's health charities." Since Harris's death, Brosnan has been an advocate for cancer awareness and, in 2006, he served as spokesperson for Lee National Denim Day, a breast cancer fundraiser which raises millions of dollars and raises more money in a single day than any other breast cancer fundraiser.

In May 2007, Brosnan and Smith donated $100,000 to help replace a playground on the Hawaiian island of Kauai, where they own a home. On  7 July 2007, Brosnan presented a film at Live Earth in London. He also recorded a television advertisement for the cause.

"Married Life"

official site

http://www.sonyclassics.com/marriedlife/

story 

source ; seattle weekly

Film noir and melodrama cast a long shadow over Ira Sachs' look back at the rotting heart of the '50s nuclear family, but his movie rarely breaks a sweat. Slow, deliberate, and russet to a fault, this quietly controlled chamber piece, based on a 1959 murder mystery by British writer and spy John Bingham, applies more surveillance than carnality to the couplings and decouplings of upstanding citizens in a Pacific Northwest suburb. The cast is top-drawer, if strangely muted: Chris Cooper is a drab company man seeking "true happiness" in the arms of a demure platinum blonde (Rachel McAdams) coveted by his best friend (Pierce Brosnan), but who can't bring himself to divorce his wife, the seemingly happy homemaker Pat (Patricia Clarkson). This perfectly presentable film lacks the passion and radical vision of Todd Haynes' Far From Heaven, to which Sachs and co-writer Oren Moverman owe their biggest debt. Where Far From Heaven continually renews itself by expanding and deepening each character's pent-up longings, Married Life sews them up too neatly; where Haynes' lush cinematography bespeaks a world bursting with deflected desire, Married Life's is punctiliously period-correct. And where Haynes insists on the ineluctably American pursuit of individual happiness, however dissident, Sachs seems undecided about whether he wants us to giggle at this benighted crew or purse our lips.

Pierce Brosnan is famous for many outstanding film roles in his career.  But the handsome Irish thespian knows his way around a kitchen, too. Brosnan dished about his favorite foods.The actor revealed his comfort food cravings: "Potatoes-baked, mashed, roasted and boiled, or fried with cold sliced tomatoes. I could eat them every night of the week.  I can't live without a good potato.  And Irish soda bread, hot from the oven with lashings of butter." The actor is keenly proactive in areas of conservation and practices green kitchen consciousness.  Brosnan shared his eco-tips with reporter Bekah Wright in the February 2008 issue of Bon Appetit."Compost scraps - from banana peels to coffee grounds - and green waste.  Purchase a turntable composter and start a gree waste pile that can fortify your garden naturally.  Purchase all-natural organic cleansers, recylced paper products, organic cotton, and non GM) (genetically modified organism) food products.Brosnan delights his family with a special treat he whips up for them. "Crepes with Meyer lemon juice and raw brown sugar on Sunday mornings."

Dear Friends,

Happy New Year and may it be a healthy and prosperous one.

The first trailer for "Mamma Mia" is now playing in theaters. It is always a shock to see the work for the first time, even if it is in one-second shots. I hope the pure joy we felt while making the movie shines through.

Since the completion of "Mamma Mia" at the end of summer I have been in Hawaii with my family, making the commute back and forth to Los Angeles for various meetings on future projects. We were present for the first onslaught of terrible fires in Southern California, which were vicious in their speed and assault on so many homes. My sincere thanks to each and every firefighter who risked life and limb to save so many of their fellow Californians lives and homes. And to those who lost their world in a matter of minutes, I send my heartfelt prayers as you move on and rebuild.

Thomas Crown 2 is in full swing with various location scouts completed in Dubai, Berlin, and Istanbul. Paul Verhoeven is set to direct.

Before I set sail with the second installment of TC2..... I'm off to South Africa to make "Vanilla Gorilla," an adventure film about an albino gorilla that has the capacity to speak through sign language. It's the story of a father and daughter who find themselves on an adventure of a lifetime, as they try to restructure their relationship after the loss of their mother / wife. Visit the Gorilla Foundation Website at www.koko.org to find out more about these magnificent animals and in particular “Koko” who learned to speak using sign language. I would like to think that the film, apart from being exciting, funny, and tender, will shed some light on the urgent need for all of us who care about the animal kingdom, to speak out against the senseless slaughter of the great silver backs, the brutal killing of whales, and the mindless butchering of the tigers and elephants. (It is not, mind you, a film that beats you over the head with all of this.)

The script has been written by Craig Gardner and Terry Loane, who will direct. Terry, a fellow Irishman from Belfast, has also made a fantastic feature film about two young boys called "Mickybo and Me" you may wish to see. "Vanilla Gorilla" begins production in mid February.

"Married Life", an ensemble piece, written and directed by Ira Sachs and starring Christopher Cooper, Rachel McAdams, Patricia Clarkson and myself is due for release March 7th.

2008 is a time for change. May it come with grace and dignity, and above all, peace. Here's to more compassion, hard work and the good times ahead.

Love and only love,

Pierce Brosnan's wife applauded for flaunting her curves

http://www.goodtoknow.co.uk/

Pierce Brosnan's American wife Keely Shaye-Smith is being applauded for her fuller figure.

Harriet Olivia – who runs website Too Fat For Fashion – reckons the 43-year-old is brave to put on weight in image-conscious LA.

Less than 10 years ago, journalist Keely was a typical superslim Hollywood wife (left), but she has become more curvaceous (right) after giving birth to sons Dylan, 11, and Paris, 6.

Harriet insists Keely is helping change attitudes towards bigger women.

'Keely isn't the typical Hollywood size zero but she is still gorgeous, intelligent and doing her thing,' Harriet tells the Daily Express.

'She is stylish, unique and very classic. She reminds me of golden age pin-ups like Rita Hayworth and Jane Russell.'

And Keely is also proud of her figure.

'I never shy away from colour or my curves,' she's said in the past. I like to play up my neckline and shoulders. If a jacket is pulling in the bust, I might just move the button an inch. But I never hide in baggy clothing.'

Pierce, 54 – who married second wife Keely in 2001 – has also spoken out about loving his missus whatever her size.

And that's the way it should be.

The Thomas Crown affair 2

Pierce Brosnan is back as the world's most debonair thief in "The Thomas Crown affair 2", entertainment industry press reported.

The Irish actor best known as superspy James Bond starred in a successful 1999 remake of the classic Steve McQueen thriller about a corporate tycoon who steals priceless works of art for the kick.

The sequel will be set in Europe and the Middle East.

 

Pierce Brosnan escapes

 Former James bond, Pierce Brosnan can take a sigh of relief as Los Angeles prosecutors announced Tuesday(27th) that no criminal charges would be filed against him for a dustup with a paparazzo in Malibu. 

In the statement of Deputy District Attorney James Garrison there was no sufficient evidence to forward this case to a jury.

Brosnan could have possibly been infringed with a battery charge for allegedly throwing photographer Robert Rosen outside a Mexican hotel.

The incident took place Oct. 26 about 6:15 p.m. as Rosen confronted the 54-year-old actor and his young son at the entrance of the Malibu eatery Casa Escobar.

Neil and Abby Warner have the perfect life and a perfect marriage. With their beautiful young daughter, Sophie, they are living the American dream... until today. When Sophie is suddenly kidnapped, they have no choice but to comply with the abductors demands. The kidnapper - Ryan (PIERCE BROSNAN), a cold and calculating sociopath takes over their lives with the brutal efficiency of someone who has nothing to lose. In the blink of an eye Neil and Abby's safe and secure existence is turned upside down. Over the next twenty four hours they are at the mercy of a man who wants only one thing.

With time running out on their little girl, Neil and Abby realize their nightmare is about to take its most deadly turn: They will have to face Ryan's final, horrifying challenge - would they kill an innocent man to save their own child? In the far distance a solitary light burns in the window of a lodge as the car glides to a halt - and Neil knows it is a question only he can answer - when Ryan hands him the gun...

Pierce Brosnan accused

source ; The daily Telegraph

FORMER James Bond star Pierce Brosnan is being investigated for his alleged involvement in a scuffle with a photographer in Malibu, police confirmed today.

The Irish-born actor, 54, who played British superspy 007 in four films before passing the baton to Daniel Craig, was alleged to have struck the photographer in an altercation last Saturday, a spokesman said.

"We are investigating Mr Brosnan, who is alleged to have committed a battery," Los Angeles County sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore said.

Celebrity news website TMZ.com reported that the scuffle was triggered after Brosnan, who was accompanied by one of his children, took exception to being questioned by the photographer, identified as Robert Rosen.

Witnesses reportedly alleged Brosnan reacted by swearing at Rosen and punching him in the ribs before the photographer responded by kicking the actor in the stomach.

Mr Whitmore said results of the "ongoing investigation" will be referred to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office for review.

Dear Friends,

Greetings. Hope wherever you are you are taking some time for yourself and enjoying the sunshine.

I'm currently in the Greek islands, filming Mamma Mia, which is being directed by Phyllida Lloyd who also directed the original musical stage production in 1999. I saw Mamma Mia in London and New York with my family and found it a joyful experience. Both shows played to packed houses and both casts brought the house down. I’m thrilled to be working with one of America’s most talented and beautiful actresses, Meryl Streep, whose work has always inspired me. Other gifted cast members include: Colin Firth, Stellan Skarsgard, Julie Waters, Christine Baranski, Amanda Seyfried, and Dominic Cooper.

Married Life, an ensemble piece, written and directed by Ira Sachs and starring Christopher Cooper, Rachel McAdams, Patricia Clarkson and myself is due for release this fall. The film was accepted to the Toronto Film Festival and will premiere on September 12th. Married Life is a period piece set in Seattle in 1949, and is a story we can all relate to, one of love and marriage, secrets and sorrows.

For anyone who missed Seraphim Falls, an epic action/thriller set against the backdrop of the American Civil War starring Liam Neeson and myself, it is now available on video and DVD. The film was written and directed by David Von Ancken, and is a visceral study of revenge and the aftermath of war. Shot entirely on location in Taos and Santa Fe, I hope the raw brutality and savage beauty Seraphim Falls will leave you on the edge of your seats.

Great news on the environment front. NRDC has won a federal court ruling blocking the U.S. Navy from using mid-frequency sonar during nearly a dozen upcoming training exercises off the southern California coast.

The court concluded it was a "near certainty" that the use of deadly sonar in the upcoming exercises would cause harm to the environment, including to endangered and rare whales that live in southern California's rich waters. The court also called the Navy's proposed protections for whales "woefully inadequate and ineffectual." NRDC is demanding that the Navy take common-sense measures to protect the region's blue whales, migrating gray whales and other marine mammals as it blasts thousands of square nautical miles of ocean with ear-splitting, mid-frequency sound.

The court's injunction is "preliminary," which means that this fight is far from over. Nevertheless, it is a stunning win for our oceans, and it supports our contention that whales should not have to die for military practice. If you'd like more information on this campaign or on the NRDC, click here.

After completing Mamma Mia, I will be taking a much needed holiday on the Italian and French Riveria.

Stay tuned for more movie news!

Love and only love,
