Mumbai: On Friday, Indians woke up to an entertaining surprise as not only the front page of their newspapers but also the internet was bombarded with Hollywood star Pierce Brosnan’s face. Now, it wasn’t actually the British spy James Bond’s elegant face that caught everyone’s attention but what the actor held in his hand.
Dressed in his usual tuxedo, flaunting his perfect white beard, the former James Bond, who defined class in the most sophisticated way for many years, is seen endorsing Pan Bahar while the text below reads, “Class never goes out of style” with his signature at the end.
This is for the first time that the Hollywood sensation has endorsed an Indian brand and watching him sell pan masala didn’t go down with his fans, who took to Twitter to express their shock, surprise and awe.
The netizens just couldn’t resist poking fun at the star. Here’s Twitter’s meltdown over Pierce Brosnan’s new ad. Check it out!
Pierce Brendan Brosnan was born in Drogheda, County Louth, Ireland, to May (Smith), a nurse, and Thomas Brosnan, a carpenter. He lived in Navan, County Meath, until he moved to England, UK, at an early age (thus explaining his ability to play men from both backgrounds convincingly). His father left the household when Pierce was a child and although reunited later in life, the two have never had a close relationship. His most popular role is that of British secret agent James Bond. The death, in 1991, ofCassandra Harris, his wife of eleven years, left him with three children – Christopher and Charlotte from Cassandra’s first marriage and Sean from their marriage. Since her death, he has had two children with his second wife, Keely Shaye Smith.
His mother, May, was 19 when she gave birth to him. She had married his father, Thomas, on August 16, 1952. However, his parents separated when he was still a baby, and from the age of 4 he was raised by his maternal grandparents, Philip and Kathleen Smith, while his mother went to London to train as a nurse. When he was 6, both grandparents died and he was passed around amongst relatives until Eileen Reilly took him into her lodging house. Finally, when he was 10, his mother was able to take him to her home in Putney, London. While in London, May had met a man, named Bill Carmichael, who had asked her to marry him, but she wanted approval from her son. Pierce gave his approval and the couple were married. From that point on, Bill treated Pierce as his real son and they got along fine. It was Bill who took Pierce to see his first Bond movie, Goldfinger (1964), and it was at that point that decided to take up acting.
