Once he was Bond, in his latest role he's a retiree turned diamond robber. As The Love Punch opens, Pierce Brosnan discusses bad times, buffoonery, and acting his age
One morning last summer, Pierce Brosnan woke up alone and miserable in a hotel room in Serbia, and realised he was 60. “My wife had given me a great birthday party the night before in Malibu,” he says, “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…” He smiles ruefully.
