Pierce Brosnan's quotes

  • [on his marriage to Cassandra Harris] Our marriage gives me a stability that makes me feel that I can tackle the world.
  • [on his good looks] I don't see myself as the "Hunk of the Month".
  • [about his deceased wife, Cassandra Harris] 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.
  • 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.
  • There was only one Bond for me, and it was Sean Connery. That made the role daunting.
  • 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.
  • To my eye, women get sexier around 35. They know a thing or two, and knowledge is always alluring.
  • 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.
  • [on former James Bond George Lazenby] 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.
  • 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.
  • [on the widely criticized federal government response to Hurricane Katrina] 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • [on Casino Royale (2006)] 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.
  • [2005] 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • [on his portrayal of the character of James Bond] I never felt that I really nailed it.
  • (On the actors he most admires) There's Marlon Brando, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Gene Hackman, Spencer Tracy - and Cary Grant.
  • [on Tomorrow Never Dies (1997)] I still don't know what the movie's about. I honestly couldn't tell you.
  • Assault weapons should be banned without question and guns should be monitored. The gun law in America is absolutely crazy and out of control.
  • 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.
  • [on The Expendables 4 (2023)] 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.
  • I have no desire to watch myself as James Bond. 'Cause it's just never good enough. It's a horrible feeling.
  • [Being Bond was like being] 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.
  • [on playing 'Devereaux', a retired CIA man] This agent has grit and gravitas. He really is a cultured badass.
  • [on why he undertook The November Man (2014), another spy thriller] Having completed the James Bond series, and after saving the world four times, there was a kind of a void left in my life.
  • [on choosing to act as a film producer] 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.
  • 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.
  • [on why his tenure as James Bond ended] I think I was caught up between the egos of the producers and the studios, really. They (the producers) didn't know whether to go younger, they didn't know what to do, period.
  • [on Daniel Craig in Spectre (2015)] He's a mighty warrior, and I think he found a great sense of himself in this one with the one-liners and a nice playfulness there. Just get a tighter story and he'll have another classic.
  • [on Spectre (2015)] The story was kind of weak - it could have been condensed. It kind of went on too long. It really did. It is neither fish nor fowl. It's neither Bond nor Bourne. Am I in a Bond movie? Not in a Bond movie?
