Brosnan & Keely spotted
Pierce Brosnan and wife, Kelly Shaye-Smith, were spotted leaving Malibu Colony Company at Cross Creek in
Pierce recently told ABC News how he would love to be in another Bond movie.
“I was wondering why the door closed on me! I thought everything was going so well! You know ‘Come back,’ they say, ‘Come back’ and there you go! We won’t talk about that.”
Brosnan Grateful For Second Wife Keely

PIERCE BROSNAN has heaped praise on his wife KEELY for encouraging him to continue to mourn his late spouse CASSIE, who died of cancer.
The GoldenEye star gave up his career to nurse his first wife, Australian actress Cassandra Harris, as she fought ovarian cancer - and he was devastated when she finally succumbed to the disease in 1991.
And the actor admits he was lucky to find love again with writer Keely Shaye Smith, who he married in 2001, because she understands his profound feelings for Harris.
Brosnan explains, "We talk about her (Harris). I am blessed with my wife, Keely, who has always been remarkably kind and compassionate. Cassie is remembered with great love, remembered dearly. Keely has always accommodated that, and we have now been together 17 years. You know, I have the luck of the Irish. I've had great luck in finding a partner.
"Cancer is a hard one to live with. To see someone suffer for four years, when the moment comes it's a relief that the suffering has gone. It's very hard to talk about death with somebody, but one day she said, 'It doesn't look so good for me.' We held each other and wept and had a cup of tea. A cup of tea always sorts things out, and then you sort out your priorities
Brosnan crazy for his wife
Pierce Brosnan loves his wife as much he did when he first met her.
The ‘Mamma Mia!’ actor started American journalist Keely Smith in 1994 and says the pair – who have two sons together, 13-year-old Dylan, and Paris, eight, and married in 2001 – are still smitten with each other and are determined to spend the rest of their lives together.
He said, “I’m in love like it was the first day. We complement one another. Keely is very good at what she does – as a mother, friend and partner. I know exactly when I have to say, ‘Yes, darling!’ We go together through thick and thin and – God willing – we will do that until the end of our lives.”
The couple are currently building their “dream house” in Malibu, California, and while they can’t wait to move in, Pierce admits it’s causing a lot of stress in their lives.
The 56-year-old star told Frau im Spiegel magazine, “We are building our dream house on the beach in Malibu. You can compare that with the chaos caused by a tsunami. But it’s the largest and most beautiful challenge of my life.
“I also think my age has physically and emotionally seen a real challenge. As I have become an old man I don’t have enough stamina sometimes.

Brosnan, global ambassador of whale conservation campaigns for the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), said he didn't meet President Barack Obama but was impressed by his first glimpse inside the White House. "I've always viewed it from afar so to be in the hallowed halls was ... truly an honor,” he said.

Brosnan building high-tech home

As James Bond, he handled his fair share of gadgets.
Now Pierce Brosnan is carrying his love of modern technology into his personal life.
The 55-year-old actor is building a £6.5 million mansion in Malibu, California, which will be packed with enough electronic wizardry to make Q’s eyes light up.
A source said: ‘Pierce has always loved technology and playing Bond only cemented that love. He says this will be his dream house and it will have every possible boy’s toy imaginable, plus a few for his wife.
‘It will have a high-definition home theatre which Pierce says will rival anything out there for clarity and sound.
‘And the security system is going to revolve around pressure sensors in the flooring and infrared lights.’
The two-storey building – on a stretch known as Billionaire’s Row, where neighbours include Cher and Mel Gibson – will have a basement gym, music room and games room.
The master bedroom will have blinds that rise at the touch of a button to reveal ocean views, with adjoining separate bathrooms and walk-in closets for Brosnan and his wife Keely Shaye Smith, 46.
The actor’s wardrobe will contain a separate compartment for his cufflinks and an electronic revolving tie holder.
There is also an Olympic-sized pool, an office, an art studio and a library that comes complete with a walk-in cigar humidor.
The entire compound will have wireless and Bluetooth connectivity and flatscreen televisions built into the wall of most rooms.
A touch sensor garage will store his Range Rover and £75,000 Maserati Gran Tourismo sports car.
The source added: ‘Pierce will be able to open the main gates and the garage doors while he is still driving down the freeway. Everything will be linked to a central computer that he can control even when he is outside the house.’
The house should also be green – Brosnan

Interview with Pierce & his wife Keely
@ Golden Globes 2009
Brosnan in Chicago
On November 20, Pierce Brosnan and his wife, Keely Shaye Brosnan, were honored for their environmental activism and inducted into the Hall. Anyways, Brosnan has been a force on the green scene over the years — contributing more than $1 million to various environmental initiatives. We’re happy to see him and his wife become inducted — along with 36 other honorees.
Pierce Brosnan came to Chicago to attend a dinner last night where he was inducted into the Environmental Hall of Fame at the Hotel Allegro. The 007 star attended the event with his wife Keeley Shay Smith and then headed to Carmine’s for an Italian dinner.Brosnan was nice enough to sign autographs for fans and take photos with them. He told fans that he thought the new James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace, was great and that Daniel Craig did an amazing job .
Pierce Brosnan Favors Charlize as Costar, Obama as President
Former James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan thinks that President-elect Barack Obama would make a good 007.
"He's cool enough. He's definitely got the walk and the talk, yes," the actor told PEOPLE at the second annual Jane Goodall Institute Global Leadership Awards Celebration in Washington, D.C., Friday night. "But I think he's going to make a greater president. And Mr. Daniel Craig is a great Bond of his time."
As far as casting goes, the actor also has filming the sequel to The Thomas Crown Affair on his mind. So who's on his wish list for a female lead?
"Charlize Theron is someone who I've always admired. I think she's someone who has acquitted herself grandly," Brosnan told PEOPLE. "Nothing against Angelina Jolie. I think she's a magnificent actress. But Charlize has a poise about her and has an inner strength and femininity which I really like to watch."
Jolie was reportedly in talks to play the lead this past summer.
Brosnan, 55, and his wife, Keely Shaye Brosnan, 45, received the award for Responsible Activism in Media and Entertainment for their active support of Roots & Shoots, the global environmental youth program that Goodall started.
"Keely and I are honored to be in Washington, D.C., at such an exciting time in this nation's history and to accept this award from our dear friend Dr. Jane Goodall," Brosnan told the crowd at the $500-a-plate fundraiser.
"I have a wonderful wife in Keely, who is very versed in the world of green," he told reporters. "This is a partnership now of 16 years and she has educated me on the environment and how to bring up children, whether it's the food they eat or the food that we grow at home in Hawaii – clean water, good vegetables, recycling." The couple has two sons, Dylan, 11, and Paris, 7, in addition to three grown children from Brosnan's first marriage.
Brosnan interview for "Parade"
13th of June 2008
More P.B. Parade pictures ; click on the button on top of the page "P.B. pics"
Welcome to paradise!’ Pierce Brosnan lifts his glass to toast me and his wife of six years, Keely. We’re at their oceanfront Hawaiian home, dining on salade niçoise and pasta with locally grown mushrooms. The setting is stunning, and the views of nature are spectacular. Brosnan is not kidding about lifestyle on the north coast of Kauai being bliss. In this glamorous atmosphere, he is looking movie-star handsome in seersucker shorts and flip-flops, and Keely’s hair is still wet from a swim in the sea.
“Living here has been very insular and rewarding,” Brosnan says with a smile. “It has allowed me to be a father who can sit quietly with my two young sons, Dylan and Paris [ages 11 and 7]. I paint, and they paint. And we play guitar. We play ukulele. My wife is an ace gardener, and the kids get in the mud with her. You can have a very simple life here.”
His onscreen life has been very different, given that he seems to have spent much of it in a tuxedo. The ’80s TV series Remington Steele helped create his reputation as a suave rogue, and playing James Bond in four hit movies established Brosnan as a jet-setting ladies’ man. The Thomas Crown Affair also helped seal his image as a first-class man of style.
“It’s a hard game, the movie game,” he says, relaxed now, with his dog sleeping at his feet. “You’re judged constantly. You have to be as tough as old boots. You have to keep up as an actor—physically, emotionally, spiritually, mentally—just to be there, because, when the opportunity comes around, the door can close so quickly. ‘Do you sing?’ Of course I sing. ‘Do you sky-dive?’ Of course I do. ‘Do you fight?’ Yeah. ‘Are you a lover?’ Are you kidding? ‘What are you?’ So that’s ingrained in me, as an actor, to be prepared, I suppose.”
But Brosnan wasn’t prepared when he got a phone call out of the blue about four years ago saying his tenure as 007 was done. Daniel Craig would take over the part of James Bond. “I didn’t see that coming,” he says. “I thought we were going to do a fifth film. And I was going to take a gracious bow off the stage. Instead of that, you are just told, ‘Goodbye.’ That’s the way it goes down in life. It’s as hard and as fast as that. I had done my contract. They had invited me back, and they changed their mind. It’s business.”
The implication was that Brosnan, now 55, was too old for the part. Women in the movie business are used to hearing that, but not a guy who’s still a leading man. “That was a shock, yes,” he says with a laugh. “I never thought of myself as being too old. It was startling to hear such things said about oneself, especially when you thought you were going down that particular avenue, and then the door gets slammed in your face.”
Shaken and stirred but not bitter, Brosnan now thinks passing the Bond baton was a blessing. “Oh, it turned out very lucky,” he says. “Within the space of the punch and the pain of being passed over or rejected or the bottom of your world falling out, within that same breath came this liberation of, ‘I’m free. I can do anything I want.’ It’s up to me to have the guts to make the next stage of my career as interesting and as exciting and unexpected as possible.”
Brosnan has Always kept his career varied, taking on roles from suave to seedy. He’s shown his range in movies like Evelyn, The Matador, and Seraphim Falls. Soon we’ll see the biggest stretch of his career (think sparkly blue spandex bell bottoms), when he serenades Meryl Streep in the screen version of the popular musical Mamma Mia! It opens July 18.
Romance we expected, but declaring his love in song? You have to wonder if the prospect of belting out “S.O.S.” and those other very familiar ABBA songs was daunting. “Well, everybody has danced to this music,” says Brosnan, “so I just went for it. They said ‘Meryl Streep, filming in Greece all summer,’ and I said ‘yes.’ ” He shakes his head. “Not to say I wasn’t terrified to my core.”
Just picture Brosnan on the beach, singing to the waves along with his iPod. “I walked up and down the coast and sang karaoke to my own voice for about six weeks. Went to New York for the first rehearsals, and I sounded dreadful. I quietly freaked out, and with my new-found bravado, I made a pig’s ear of it. So I went back home and listened and sang some more.” He grins triumphantly. “In the end, they liked it so much they added a verse to my big song.”
The vocals were one kind of challenge. The costumes were even scarier. “It was a hoot,” he recalls. “To look at this outfit and say to yourself, ‘I’m going to put this on and walk out there in platform shoes and camp around singing.’ I
just told myself we were in too deep to go back.”
He chuckles. “You have to be able to make fun of your own dignity. You’ve got to let the movie make fun of your dignity. To let it rip is brilliantly exhilarating.”
Though he loves his laid-back life in Hawaii, Brosnan admits he’s ready to go back to the mainland. “I’m a worker,” he says. “Every job I got I had to fight for. I’ve been lucky, but I’ve worked hard at it. I love making movies. I love the adventure of being an actor. I have to stay sharp.”
Brosnan has lived the giant ups and downs of the Hollywood fantasy. Twenty-one years ago, his first wife, Cassandra Harris, became ill with ovarian cancer. Brosnan chose to put aside work and stay by her side through the ordeal. “That’s what we’re supposed to do,” he says. “We’re human beings. In sickness and in health, you know?” Her death was a giant loss to their son, Sean, who is now on his way to being an actor. (Brosnan also adopted Cassie’s two children by a previous husband.)
Brosnan defines himself as a “working actor” who’s never lost touch with the real side of life. “Having endured, I suppose, playing James Bond and not playing James Bond, that makes you thick-skinned,” he says. “But I had that skin beforehand anyway, because I had the philosophy that I was going to be successful and hopefully successful without being detrimental to myself as a person.
“You struggle with money. You struggle without money. You struggle with love. You struggle without love. But it’s how you manage. You have to keep laughing, you have to be fun to be with, and you have to live with style—not fancy-schmancy, but in a way which is present and meaningful and has some beauty to it.”
He leans forward with enthusiasm. “You’ve got to be a fighting rooster, man,” says Brosnan. “You’ve got to get out there and preen those feathers and look like you know what you’re doing and hope you know what you’re doing and have a good time.”
