Pierce Brosnan has shown that Hollywood romances don’t have to follow the stereotypical patterns of younger co-stars, secret affairs, and old men dating women half their age.
Despite being widowed in 1991, Brosnan found love again with American journalist Keely Shaye Smith, and they have been married for 20 years, raising their two sons and three of Brosnan’s children from his previous marriage.
However, their happy relationship has been met with criticism from the public, who have targeted Keely’s appearance and weight.
Brosnan has defended his wife, saying that he loves every curve of her body and that she is the most beautiful woman in his eyes. He values her for who she is, not just how she looks.
Brosnan’s decision to stay with the same woman and continue their relationship is seen as a defiant move in Hollywood, where older men are often involved with women decades younger than them. This highlights the unrealistic demands placed on women’s appearance, suggesting that they must always be more attractive than men and never “let themselves go.”
Brosnan’s love for his wife challenges these norms and sets an example for Hollywood romances to follow.
He shows that true love is not about physical appearance but about valuing and supporting your partner for who they are.
