Just going to be real here there is no point since 1995 where I didn't want to be Pierce Brosnan. Chubby brunette cutie aging like a fine wine? Not seeing a problem.
Seriously though I heard his dad left when he was young and his first wife died of cancer. Dude deserves props for not being typical hollywood sludge and trading up for a new 20 year old every 3 years.
