Pierce Brosnan is about to turn 60 years old: would you still hit it?

Pierce Brosnan has been making the rounds this week to promote his new film Love Is All You Need. I’m including pics of Pierce from last night’s screening of the film in NYC, as well as from the Chaplin Awards Gala a few days ago, also in NYC. For both events, Pierce brought his wife as his date. Pierce married Keely Shaye Smith in 2001 after his first wife, Cassandra Harris, passed away. What’s remarkable about Pierce and Keely is that I never hear anything bad about them. Like, they don’t seem to have any drama or weirdness as a couple. He seems to adore her, and she seems to adore him and they live a relatively quiet life. I would imagine Keely gets a lot of crap about her weight, but my feeling is… Pierce seems to love her as she is and who really cares?

Also, they both look WAY younger than they really are. She’s 49 years old (WHAT?) and he turns 60 next month (OMG). Pierce talked about aging when he was on Today earlier this week. He said, “Some days it rattles and shakes in there psychically, but ultimately I feel nothing but a great gift of life. There’s nothing to prove. I feel comfortable in my own skin.” Pierce also says, “I love what I do and I had a bit of luck and I’m still driven and I turn 60 here next month and I’m very much aware of my time and life and just have nothing but … humble gratitude for being an actor; it’s a very capricious game.” Here’s the interview:

Meanwhile, Pierce has just signed on for another spy film, this one called November Man. He’s doing it with Bond Girl Olga Kurylenko, and Pierce said: “I think there’s another room on the stage for another spy! Daniel (Craig) can’t have it all to himself. My co-star is a lovely actress called Olga Kurylenko, who seems to be going through leading men like hot dinners. She started with Daniel Craig and she’s gonna end up with Brosnan! She’s a gorgeous actress, beautiful woman. She’s in and it’s the older spy, younger spy.” Um… I love Pierce and everything, but I’m not sure if I would watch that.

    Would I hit it? In my mind I already have.

  2. Kristen says:


    Like there’s even a question.

  3. Tiffany says:

    Until my screams are heard through the hills of Ireland.

  4. Maggie says:

    I wonder if his wife has a medical issue. She looks uncomfortably large. He looks great for his age. Sounds like a nice guy.

    • brin says:

      I thought of that too. She used to have a gardening show on PBS several years ago and she was much thinner.
      They look very happy together.

    • pissmidget says:

      you must be nutz or blind or both …she’s gawjus you jealous bitch …
      looks like a nice gal too ……lol

    • Ellen says:

      So, I have no idea what that even means, “uncomfortably large” — she looks pretty comfortable in her husband’s arms in these photos. But with that caveat, Smith did in fact give an interview ages ago (2003/2004-ish?) and hinted that she gained weight due to a metabolic issue that emerged during/after her pregnancies.

    • Agnetha says:

      I believe she has said she has Hashiomoto’s hypothyroidism which leads to weight gain (especially in the face) and can ultimately destroy the thyroid if not treated. I had something similar happen to me after I was pregnant, it really sucks because no matter how much you work out or how healthy you eat, the weight won’t come off.

      • Lulu.T.O. says:

        Hmmm. I have that. Your body develops antibodies to your thyroid and start killing it. I’ve been on thyroid replacement therapy for years. It’s a fairly common autoimmune disorder. I gained 5 lbs by the time I was diagnosed (it was an incidental finding during a hormone panel). Lost the weight soon after. I’d kind of be surprised if that was her issue. At any rate, she is gorgeous and he sleeves me out ever since Bag O’ Bones. Fake jogging with his little pot belly. Ugh.

  5. Anna-fo-Fanna says:

    I thought yes, but then I saw the shaka picture and thought, hmm, no, I guess not.

  6. BW says:

    I think they’re both very pretty.

    You’re not going to have wrinkles if you have little fat behind your skin. I’m getting heavier as I’m getting older, and I think I actually look better.

    • Dingo says:

      Most do look better if they gain a little weight through the years. Nature’s botex and the plus is that you don’t have to look like a bubblehead like a lot of Hollywood women because their face is full of botex but their body is scary thin.

  7. Anna says:

    A million times yes. He is beautiful inside and out.

  8. Lauren Carter says:

    I have dreams of a threesome with Pierce and Sean Connery…

  9. Lemony says:

    Oh yeah. I don’t care how old he is!
    Seriously though, I’m happy that he & Sheely have such a great marriage.
    We all age, we all gain, or lose, weight over the years, we all go through changes….How cool that they are still so into each other & they make a beautiful couple.

  10. pissmidget says:

    him & his wife both look great ..
    they are a lovely couple …..dayum straight

  11. fabgrrl says:

    Wow, he looks great! And not pulled and plasticy and dyed. Just like a handsome, middle aged gent.

    I had assumed his wife was WAY younger, like 20+ years younger than Pierce. I guess she just *looks* 15 years younger than she is.

  12. T.Fanty says:

    No. He looks EXACTLY like the Fantlings godfather. I would drink a lot with him though. I think he’d be a riot drunk.

  13. marie says:

    no, cause he’s on my mom’s hit list and just no..

  14. mkyarwood says:

    Keely used to be thin, but she is one of the models who escaped. I remember very rude tabloid photos taken of her at the beach when he was in his Bond years. But the magazine ended up looking stupid, because Pierce was just all over her, haha.

  15. GeeMoney says:

    She’s 49?!? Wow. She looks great.

    I’d totally sleep with Pierce. He’s awesome.

  16. popcorn11 says:

    No thanks. 60 is grandpa territory or atleast dad zone.

    He was something back in the day though. Wasnt he reportedly douchey during his Bond hayday pissing off producers.

  17. Agitation says:

    I’m fairly young so I wasn’t around when he was the hot shit in Hollywood, but I saw that one Bond movie he was in like a couple of months or so ago and there was this one scene where he was about to sleep with this lady AND HOLY SHIT HIS FACE IS GLORIOUS. He’s…unf.

  18. Emperor Cupcake says:

    I think larger women tend to look older than their age when they’re young, and then suddenly start looking younger than they are around about thirty.

    He and his wife seem like a lovely couple. It’s always…refreshing to see a leading man married to a grown woman instead of a starlet young enough to be his daughter. Or granddaughter.

  19. QQ says:

    Id Hit it so Hard Is Gonna Void The Warranty

    Like a Screendoor During a Windstorm

    So Bad His Mom is Gonna Cry in the 1950s having a bad feeling about what’s gonna happen to her baby Boy in the distant future

    So, like YES

  20. Máiréad says:

    You know I love me some Remington Steele! He was the business for us kids growing up here in the 80s :)

    I know this is super-cheesy, but I always giggle at this ad:

  21. j.eyre says:

    The answer to this question as been the same since Remington Steele – yes, in a very powerful way.

  22. Reece says:

    He’s one of my Forevers.
    Put it this way, when I was a little girl I was SO going to marry Remington Steele and do married couple-y things with him in close spaces with explosions going off around us.

    Edit: I was never restricted from anything as a kid.

  23. mar says:

    I love him , I always have, and I love how he loves his wife.

    she is heavier then she used to be but such a pretty woman

  24. Nev says:


    And my favorite Bond!!!!

  25. serena says:

    Oh my rsdsdred, I love him and I’ll love him even when he’ll be 80. So yes, I would hit it. His wife his damn lucky. still, I can’t believe she’s 49 years old and he’s 60..they’re ageless vampires right?

  26. someone says:

    Those bottom two pictures with Keely’s arm around Pierce’s shoulder are awkward. She should keep her arm down around his waist.

  27. Alexa says:

    Love him! Love Keely, his wife! I especially loved Pierce in Mrs. Doubtfire playing the straight man to Robin Williams’s crazily bitter Mrs. Doubtfire. Pierce made that part of the movie all funnier, imo! (If this seems odd, it may help to know that I’ve only seen about 20 movies in my entire life.)

  28. Mia says:

    I always thought Pierce Brosnan was a sexy and charming older man. I would most definitely hit that, lol.

  29. RHONYC says:


    over & over again baby, yeaaah. 8)

  30. V. says:

    Yes totally! He is damn sexy for 60! Jesus! I can only hope I marry a man that stays that damn hot through 60! BUT….Keely honey you are killing me, sweetie that weight is seriously unhealthy.

  31. Amy says:

    No, but then I wouldn’t have hit it 20 years ago either.

  32. Jayna says:

    No, but he is a nice-looking man for his age. The only 60-year-old celeb I would go there with is Liam Neeson.

  33. Ginger says:

    He is a hot older man (much like my man Liam Neeson!) so yes please! I like him even more when he talks about how hot he thinks his wife is with all her curves!

  34. OriginallyBlue says:

    I totally would back in the Bond days and now. I love him and I can’t believe his wife is 50 years old. She looks great.

  35. Deb says:

    I’d hit it so hard I’d knock him back to age 40 :-)

  36. Cazzie says:

    If anyone wants to see a great Pierce Brosnan movie where he is smart and funny, I highly recommend ‘The Matador’.

    He pretty much plays the anti-Bond, and it’s hilarious to watch.

  37. lucy2 says:

    He is one handsome man.
    They seem very sweet and happy together, which is awesome and pretty amazing for Hollywood.

  38. Maggie says:

    Look she is pretty. But also pretty fat. I love how it appears he doesn’t care that she is. Obviously loves her for who she is. But it doesn’t take away the fact that she is far too heavy. How can anyone say there isn’t a health issue there? Denial? And I don’t agree with the comments that one looks younger because they’re heavy. Not true! Runs away…….

  39. Bird says:

    Remington Steele? Always and forever…

  40. Fue McCormick says:

    I’d like to see a close-up photo of the necklace Keely is wearing in the first pic. It looks like Jade and Coral, maybe? I just love beaded tassles :)

  41. pam says:

    no, sorry. even though i am fifty i would still feel like i was boinking my grampa.

  42. JRenee says:

    Any day ending in D- A-Y yep!

  43. april says:

    I remember when Keely used to be on Regis and Kathie Lee when their show was first syndicated. She had a regular spot on the show and she was absolutely gorgeous and thin. Good for them that they are still together and he has stuck by her.

    Google her name, Keely Shaye Smith, and look at their wedding photo and she was stunning. She is still beautiful.

  44. Chordy says:

    He’s a great looking 60, but I believe that he’s 60. Keeley, on the other hand. I would believe you if you told me she was 30!

  45. Celt Lady says:

    His sexiness only gets better with age, and his obvious love for his wife is so endearing. He is one sexy sixty. Yowza!

  46. janie says:

    In a New York minute!!! I have always liked her, so sweet & beautiful! Great couple.

  47. boredbrit says:

    Yes. And I’m 19. Don’t judge.

  48. rlh says:

    This man is the definition of class.

  49. Jade says:

    Her face is beautiful. Both are aging very well.

  50. Ruth Dunbar says:

    I would destroy him. Even more so after I saw that Today show interview.

  51. Ravensdaughter says:

    He looks great. Keely plumped out, but I think we all saw that coming.
    Not only is he sexy, but he is kind, from the stories I have heard of his first wife (who died of cancer) and second.

  52. Furious George says:

    He is a dead ringer for my dad; they’re absolute doppelgängers. Like, growing up, I was never a fan of the Pierce Brosnan Bonds, because it was just like watching my dad running around and I’d be all, naaaahh, he could never. Preeeetty sure my dad’s resemblance to Pierce is one of the reasons mum married him. Ha!

  53. SydneySpy says:

    She’s gorgeous. He’s gorgeous. They’re gorgeous together. Perfect match.

  54. dorothy says:

    Love him, love her. They look so in love!

  55. skuddles says:

    No hitting, nope, not ever!! Pierce seems like a sweet, decent guy and a talented actor but he also bears a shocking resemblance to an obnoxious d–khead ex of mine… sends my sense of ICK!! into overdrive.

  56. Mellie Khunt says:

    I would definitely hit it and then some.

  57. Kushkins says:

    I would hit morning, noon and night! :)

  58. Kushkins says:

    I would hit morning, noon and night! :)

  59. Kosmos says:

    He’s always been extremely handsome, even in his older age, so YES, he’s still got it! He and Keely have always seemed like a good match, but I do wonder why her weight has skyrocketed? Wow, I was a bit shocked to see her this heavy. Anyway, I hope they’re still a happily married couple.

  60. Janey says:

    I got a real close up look at him out side the Plaza Hotel in NYC 4 years ago when he was filming with Sparkles. He is a very very hansome man in the flesh pics don’t do him justice.

  61. Lola says:

    Rag on her weight all the naysayers might, she’s the one who actually DOES get to hit it.

  62. DeltaJuliet says:

    These comments make me sad :(

    I used to be a lot thinner (although never as beautiful as her) and now I’m quite a bit heavier (again, no where near as heavy as she is now) but it’s not like she doesn’t know. I feel bad about myself when I see old pictures and I’m not splashed all over the internet. It just seems like bullying.

  63. Aud says:

    He is my favourite Bond. Yeah I’d hit it
