Pierce Brosnan Quotes / Quotations

We owe it to our children to be better stewards of the environment. The alternative? - a world without whales. It's too terrible to imagine.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


For me, acting is doing.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


My mother was the prettiest woman in the town. He was a bit older than her. They made me. And he split.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


Dark comedy is very difficult. You have to bring the audience in and push them away at the same time.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


It never felt real to me. I never felt I had complete ownership over Bond. Because you'd have these stupid one-liners - which I loathed - and I always felt phony doing them.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


When people don't believe in you, you have to believe in yourself.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


I had to have some balls to be Irish Catholic in South London. Most of that time I spent fighting.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


That's it. I've said all I've got to say on the world of James Bond.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


There's too many people in seats of power who just haven't got a clue what they're doing. They're bean counters, and it just pisses me off because consequently our kids go to see crap movies.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


Acting allows me to explore new worlds, to discover characters by delving into their lives, and ultimately to become someone else entirely.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


I don't see myself as the Hunk of the Month.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


Some people have a tendency to get knocked down in this business and sulk and whine, and they just create a rod for their back, really. You have to have broad shoulders and get through it.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


This man called President Bush has a lot to answer for. I don't know if this man is really taking care of America. This government has been shameful.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


Our marriage gives me a stability that makes me feel that I can tackle the world.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


Cassie has made me the man I am, the actor I am, the father I am. She's forever embedded in every fiber of my being.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


It's a role better suited to someone who is in his 40s, old enough to have the confidence and the sophistication and strength to be able to stand there and just let the moment sit. Bond is a man with the greatest of confidence. And playing that takes practice. In 1986 I think I was 33 or something like that, and I still looked like a baby. Finally, I'm growing into this face of mine. That takes time.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


I had to make a living. I had the mortgage to pay, I had the school fees to pay. I had bread and butter to put on the table. You know your worth as an actor, but you have to get a job.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


I think that all the films I've ever made are personal, even James Bond, because it's so much of myself, so much of who I am as a man and as an actor. You have to invest yourself in every character that you portray.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


And certainly in those dark days, in the '50s in Ireland, if you were a single parent living in that society, you were somewhat shamed and stigmatized. I can certainly relate it to my parents, especially my mother. The old man took to the hills and my mother never saw him again, and suddenly you are spoken about in the Sunday service in church, never directly but they would bring up the issue of being a single parent and of marriage falling apart.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


. . . there's that lovely line from that wonderful epic picture that I made called "Grey Owl" where they say to Archie Belaney, "A man becomes what he dreams. You have dreamed well." Part of the dreams go back to my childhood and when I left Ireland in 1964, I discovered the cinema. One of the first films I saw was "Goldfinger" - I didn't want to be James Bond but the seed of cinema and pictures was sown there in Putney High Street. And then I discovered Clint Eastwood and Steve McQueen and the movies.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


There was only one Bond for me, and it was Sean Connery. That made the role daunting.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


I know most actors say otherwise, but I like sex scenes. Bond was supposed to be this great lover, but I always found the love scenes in those movies a little dull. It's lovely to work out the fantasy of it all in celluloid and then go home to my wife.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


To my eye, women get sexier around 35. They know a thing or two, and knowledge is always alluring.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


Bond is an enigma. He's smooth and bigger than life, but he's vague as a personality. It's a little like doing a period piece. Look, I'm thankful, the role made me an international star. I've been in the backwaters of Papua New Guinea and heard, "Hey, Bond."
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


Being an actor in Hollywood involves lots of things beyond acting. Charm really helps. And it's a good idea to incorporate a little Bond into all your dealings.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


George is just an angry, old, pissed-off guy. He was never an actor, but some pissed-off Aussie who doesn't know how to show his feminine side. I met him, and he's got that kind of brittle edge to him
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


When you look at Ian Fleming's work, it's there on the page. The martinis, the drugs, the cigarettes, the casino, the blood on the hands. But they never went there. Hopefully, they will go there with Daniel [Daniel Craig]. They have the product, they have the man, and I'm sure they will.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


I have nothing against Republicans, but this government has made decisions which we are to suffer the consequences of for a long, long time. You want to have faith in your leaders but it's very hard to have faith in President George W. Bush. Look at what he's done to the environment and this savage war that has started. You speak up as an actor and people will shoot you down hard and fast. But you don't speak as an actor. You speak as a man, a working actor with a family.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


It never made it in to the papers, but I've had my face sliced open by a stuntman and a knee injury. But it's all part and parcel of being Bond.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


It never felt real to me. I never felt I had complete ownership over Bond. Because you'd have these stupid one-liners - which I loathed - and I always felt phony doing them. I'd look at myself in the suit and tie and think, "What the heck am I doing here?" Such sentiments were nothing new. That was always the frustrating thing about the role. Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson play it so safe. The pomposity and rigmarole that they put directors through is astounding . . . I can do anything I want to do now. I'm not beholden to them or anyone. I'm not shackled by some contracted image.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


I was trained as an actor and I was led to believe that I had a number of performances in me. The fact that I've just given the same performance, well, maybe . . . If I can get away with it, why not? But I've reached a point now where I'd better start trying to find some performances and challenge myself.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


You're not even allowed to show a bloody nipple. It's pathetic. What Bond needs is a good, palpable killing sequence and a good sex scene - and it doesn't have to be graphic, you can use your imagination. We had a good one in "The Thomas Crown Affair" - a really classy, sexy scene.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


This man called President Bush [George W. Bush] has a lot to answer for. I don't know if this man is really taking care of America. This government has been shameful.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


People should be allowed to marry and gay marriage should be out there. If a man or a woman has a good partner and they love each other with their heart and soul, let them marry. I am very much for gay marriage. I think the rest is censorship and conflict and really no one else's business.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


George seems to be an unhappy camper about Bond. He gets pissy and spits the dummy out. Tim [Timothy Dalton] was fantastic. He really had the balls to go out there and play it on the nose - Ian Fleming undiluted. But where were the laughs? Sean [Sean Connery] was brilliant, he played it dead on the money. And Roger [Roger Moore] really made it his own and went for the laughs. I think those two were the best.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


I think Daniel [Daniel Craig] is a very fine actor. These are rocky waters, but I think he will have the last laugh. You get twisted some way or another if you throw yourself into it. There's going to be mishaps.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


I was young, frivolous, and full of abandon - a hippie with long hair down to my shoulders and a little goatee beard. Why? Because I thought I was gay. But no, I'm not gay.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


I'm looking forward to it like we're all looking forward to it. Daniel Craig is a great actor and he's going to do a fantastic job.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


I always wanted to go back, because it's the blueprint of Bond's character. It's the one where Fleming [Ian Fleming] really painted in the details of what Bond was about, so I was disappointed that it didn't happen, but you can't go around with that in your heart. It's all such a game really, and you win some, you lose some, you're there, you're not there. Getting the part of Bond and playing the part of Bond was a blessing and a curse, which I think [Sean Connery] has spoken about, and I'm sure Daniel [Daniel Craig] is just getting the full taste of right now. So, you know, one can really only look at the blessings in life.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


There's nothing like going off and doing a film in Nigeria, Papua New Guinea or Santa Fe, it's the best and most exhilarating. I mean it sorts the men from the boys, really, where you have to figure out who really wants to do it and who's good at their job. When you go off to distant locations, especially if they're tough, it weeds those people out, but hopefully you don't have to weed anybody out, because you've got everybody on board who really wants to go out and work hard - fourteen-, sixteen-, eighteen-hour days in the wilderness, in a great city or some backwater, but those are the best.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


I've worked for it, and I wanted it. I had good luck and a bit of talent somewhere in the back pocket that I could kind of polish and nurture, but I dreamt and wished for all of this, then you get all of that and you've just got to show up and work. Hopefully you can stay at the table.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


It would have been great to light up and smoke cigarettes, for instance. It would have been great to have the killing a little bit more real and not wussed down. It's all rather bland. I remember doing a sex scene with Halle [Halle Berry] - I mean frolicking in the bed - and there was director Lee Tamahori right under the sheets with us. But the way we ended up doing it was almost like the old days in Hollywood - kissing the girl but still having your feet on the floor.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


A few years ago I would have said I could imagine playing James Bond in a more ferocious way. Like a sort of Quentin Tarantino character - but now, at 52, I am definitely too old.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


I've been identified with James Bond or Thomas Crown for so long - suave, elegant, sophisticated men in suits. It's like you've been giving the same performance for 20 years.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


I've been very lucky in my life. Very lucky. I have been able to go through quite a few lives and still retain a certain identity and love of life. I have a new life, a new woman, a new baby. I also have a new realization, as a man and as an actor: This is where you belong. It's a great feeling, knowing you don't have to prove yourself or step on tippy toes to be seen or be heard. Just to be comfortable in who you are.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


"Mrs. Doubtfire" was a wonderful, beautiful ray of sunshine in my career. For the first time, I was in a studio picture and I was working with wonderful actors who were all working at the top of their game. It allowed me to do comedy and play a character who was viewed as a jerk.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


When I found acting, or when acting found me, it was a liberation. It was a stepping stone into another life, away from a life that I had, and acting was something I was good at, something which was appreciated. That was a great satisfaction in my life.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


I've always been a bit of a loner. I've always felt like an outsider, and because I didn't have a mother or father figure, I brought myself up. I made my own rules, and from the pain of not having a mother there came the great strength of being able to deal with things on a one-to-one basis throughout my life.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


Cassie, I think, took it harder than I did. Because you want for your partner in life, you want the best for your partner. It just didn't happen. Timothy Dalton was signed the next day. And I became the guy who coulda been, shoulda been, might have been Bond.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


I remember starting the first day on that film in an aircraft, flying a jet and it was 102 degrees, and I'm wearing a helmet and sweater, and then I'm being strangled over and over again, and I thought, 'Oh my God, this bloody character is going to kill me.' The press tour for that film was 22 countries. When I did it I knew the movie wasn't up to speed; it wasn't as good as "GoldenEye" and you have to bang the drum loudly to get the attention.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


I never felt that I really nailed it.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


I remember being very much a loner. Very solitary childhood. I didn't have the guidance of a mother and father. I remember missing my mother. I used to think she was in the Congo working in this war zone. In reality she was a nurse in London, but I lived in my imagination.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


I thought I was having a stroke. I remember being in the fucking dressing room beforehand doing my tie up. Suddenly, my face was half-numb and I couldn't close one eye. Then I felt my arm going numb. Oh jeez, I thought, I'm having a stroke, and just then came, "knock, knock ... ready for you now, Mr. Brosnan". It was not a good evening.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


There's Marlon Brando, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Gene Hackman, Spencer Tracy - and Cary Grant.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


I just feel very alive. In losing her, watching a life dwindle down, you could taste life, you could really sense it. Because everything slows down, everything revolved around the house and small accomplishments. And then with her passing and as the pain gets lesser, you realize what you've come through, that you're still breathing, feeling, thinking, making decisions. It's quite euphoric, the feeling. It gives you a great strength.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


"The Fourth Protocol" and "Mister Johnson" weren't box-office hits, but they were successes for me. "Mister Johnson" is very close to my heart. Bruce Beresford gave me confidence and direction. "Nomads" didn't do anything for me. but it did for John McTiernan. Why didn't it work for me? My beard. I should have gone for a sleeker, more cosmetic image.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


I was in Ireland doing one of the last episodes of "Remington Steele" in '86. He came to the hotel on a Sunday afternoon. I had tea and biscuits ready and, when I opened the door, there he was. Tom. He was a stranger. I expected him to be this very tall man. He was very lively, a wiry bantam cock of a man with great energy. We talked, had a couple of pints of Guinness, he took some photographs, and then he drove off. It was our only contact. The ultimate question was, "Why did you abandon me?" - but I never asked.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


For me, the Bond that I played was caught in a time warp between what had gone before and what Daniel Craig does now. I always felt the restraints of the storytelling and it just didn't have enough bite to it. It was in the writing. The ghosts of Sean Connery and Roger Moore were there for me. It was hard to pull away from that because they were written in such a vernacular of what had gone on prior.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


It was trying to enter into the world of Steve McQueen. How do you act The King of Cool? I was so damn nervous before that movie came out in New York. I remember having panic attacks in taxis and thinking, "Jesus Christ, what have we done?" I came out in hives or something. I couldn't breathe. It was terrifying.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


I was speechless that morning, working with him. I was having a cup of coffee by the bagels, desperately trying to remember my damn lines. Suddenly I look up and it's Jack. "Hey Pierce," he says. I keep stirring my coffee. Jack Nicholson is talking to me and I'm dumbstruck. Inside my head, I'm yelling at myself: "Jesus, just shake the man's hand." I couldn't move. I was immobilised by the Jack-ness of it all.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


I still don't know what the movie's about. I honestly couldn't tell you.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


Assault weapons should be banned without question and guns should be monitored. The gun law in America is absolutely crazy and out of control.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


I have deep feelings on the issue. I am so connected to Boston being an Irishman, and now being an American citizen. It has a numbing effect on one's senses and creates deep fear in our hearts and deep sorrow. We are somewhat powerless to do anything, but to extend our sympathy to the victims of such a tragedy and hope that mankind will come to its senses and stop killing each other.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


The kill ratio in movies is overwhelming and I never really took the violence in the Bond movies too seriously, the plot was not so real.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


The offer has come in for the next Expendables. I just worked over in Bulgaria with Avi Lerner who makes them. He said, 'Would you like to be in The Expendables? I'd love to have you', and I said, 'Why not?' So we'll see.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


I have no desire to watch myself as James Bond. 'Cause it's just never good enough. It's a horrible feeling.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


an ambassador to a small nation. It's the gift that keeps on giving, that allowed me to create my own production company and make my own movies.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


I felt I was caught in a time warp between Roger [Moore] and Sean [Connery]. It was a very hard one to grasp the meaning of, for me. The violence was never real, the brute force of the man was never palpable. It was quite tame, and the characterization didn't have a follow-through of reality, it was surface. But then that might have had to do with my own insecurities in playing him as well.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


My wife had given me a great birthday party the night before in Malibu, and sent me off with all my birthday cards and said 'you must put them all up' which I dutifully did when I got in. The next morning all the birthday cards were there and there was one in the middle that said '60'. Just that number alone.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


It's so manicured and codified in America. They don't venture into the realms of reality when it comes to the relationships of men and women. They go to the market of youth...But I do love the notion of the younger woman as I am now the older man. You see it in men: that fear that the clock is ticking, the clock is ticking, and women become more and more beautiful, every age group. It just becomes this lustfulness of yearning and want.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


I have a strong faith, being Catholic Irish, that has been maintained throughout my life. I enjoy the ritual of church, prayer. I'm not consistent in it, but it's within me. The dark times and the troubles , they'll come regardless. You just hope you have the strength and courage toad address them and endure.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


Sylvester Stallone is the one that's given us these wonderful platforms for actors who have and had careers to go play and have fun and to entertain. To bring a bunch of guys together who saved the world, fought the bad guys, and put them all on the same stage, that's crazy good.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


I went and met with Tim Burton for the role of "Batman", but I just couldn't really take it seriously, any man who wears his underpants outside his pants just cannot be taken seriously. That was my foolish take on it. It was a joke, I thought. But how wrong was I? Don't get me wrong, because I love Batman, and I grew up on Batman. As a kid in Ireland, we used to get our raincoats and tie them round our neck and swing through the bicycle shed.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


This agent has grit and gravitas. He really is a cultured badass.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


Having completed the James Bond series, and after saving the world four times, there was a kind of a void left in my life.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


When it's your project, you have certain paternal feeling toward it. I always try to create a home and a safe place. I think my strength is bringing actors together.
Quotation of Pierce Brosnan


I had the time of my life. Every day was sheer magic with the man. His humanity, his grace and his brilliance of heart and mind and soul, his reverence and sincerity. It's a deep loss
