Pierce Brosnan has been a Hollywood heartthrob for years. As one of the actors who played James Bond, most notably in Goldeneye, which was released in 1995, the Irish-born actor and naturalized citizen of the United States has been front in center for years. While many fans have drooled over his good looks, Brosnan only has eyes for his wife of twenty-five years, Keely Shaye Smith.
Together they have five children together. And during their more than two decades of marriage, they have maintained a loving friendship as well as a romantic connection many would envy.
Because their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary was an important milestone to Pierce, he wanted to do something special for Keely to let her know how special she was to him.
During an interview with The Independent, Pierce spoke about how he was first attracted to Keely all those years ago while he was James Bond.
“I love her vitality, her passion. She has this strength that I wouldn’t be able to live without. When Keely looks at me, I go weak.”
Although Pierce and Keely both have busy schedules due to their illustrious careers, Pierce told PEOPLE how he always makes time for his wife.
“My wife and I took a short road trip up to Santa Barbara. We were going for a romantic weekend and to look at houses and drink great wine. We didn’t listen to any music, but we just listened to the sounds of each other’s voices and sorted out the world.”
Although they have the money they need and a lifestyle that many would kill for, Pierce and Keely care most about each other and their children. And while they are working their tails off to keep their careers going, they really just want to spend more one-on-one time with each other. That’s why Pierce made a special announcement about their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary.
He declared his love for her in front of his 630,000 followers on Instagram.
“Thank you for the Love My Love of these past 25 years, onwards.”
Keely is also very forward about her love for her husband.
On Father’s Day, she told Pierce via social media: “Thank you for taking this lifelong journey into parenthood with me. You’re the coolest dad I know.”
And when his sixty-fifth birthday came around in May, she wrote: “You are a bright light in this world, and you light up my world with so much love and joy!”
Although some people don’t believe that Pierce and Keely are that close, friends of the couple know it to be true.
“They really are deeply devoted to each other. They’re true soulmates,” one of the Brosnans friends said. “Pierce tends to wear his heart on his sleeve about things — including, obviously, Keely.”
Keely has not been given much support from the media in recent years. She has a curvy figure, which has attracted a lot of criticism from the National Enquirer and other gossip magazines.
No matter what the tabloids say, Pierce and Keely have enjoyed a happy twenty-five years together and are looking forward to the next twenty-five.
