Pierce Brosnan thinks all people act their way through life.
The 62-year-old actor makes his living from pretending to be other people, but insists that’s no different to many others. He just feels lucky to be able to make money that way.
“I’ve been in situations where I’ve had to talk my way out, sure. We all act – you act to your boss, you act to your wife, you act to your buddies, it’s the way we’re built. I’d like to say I have some wherewithal to keep a level head about me, but the kind of pressure I’ve faced is nothing compared to what many, many people face every day of their lives, all over the world,” he told Shortlist magazine.
Pierce remains best known for portraying iconic spy James Bond between 1994 and 2005, starring in flicks such as Tomorrow Never Dies and The World Is Not Enough.
He recently hit the headlines for saying he doesn’t think producer Barbara Broccoli will ever allow James Bond to be gay in a movie, and he’s touched on the famous flicks once again.
He doesn’t think he’ll ever be able to move on from his association with 007, although that doesn’t upset him too much.
“That character will follow me to the grave. Bond leaves an indelible mark on anyone who plays him. But I’m not like that in real life. I wish I was. I think I’m a pretty accessible, regular person who enjoys contact with people. I think my ego is pretty well in check. But in a crisis, you’re better off with Bond, rather than me,” he laughed.
