We’ve just grown accustomed to certain Hollywood romance archetypes by this point. There are young, cute couples who don’t mind sharing their budding romance on social media, co-stars who have secret on-set affairs while being investigated for adultery, and an elderly man in his sixties or seventies who is openly romancing a young, gorgeous woman half his age.
We witness these paradigms passively and accept them as the norm rather than challenging them. Like many of his peers in the profession, most observers anticipated that Pierce Brosnan would place last in this category. Despite fitting the bill, he ingeniously and unapologetically challenged these presumptions.
For perspective, he has two children with his wife Keely and has been happily married to her for twenty years. Even though their trip has been as romantic and passionate as one could hope, poor Keely has recently been the subject of venomous hatred for a totally unwarranted and intolerable reason.
Fortunately, Pierce resisted. In front of the critical public, he didn’t hesitate to stand up for his wife and show her his undying love and support. What we may infer from his behavior is as follows:
No matter what anyone thinks, Pierce “loves every curve” of his wife’s physique.
When he first met American journalist Keely Shaye Smith in 1994, Pierce was a widower. Cassandra Harris, his first wife, passed away from ovarian cancer on December 28, 1991. Pierce was understandably devastated by her passing and unsure of how to start healing from having to care for three kids on his alone. Keely entered his life at just the right time, and with her encouragement, he was able to step up and take on the demanding but fulfilling tasks related to parenthood.
“Her friends offered her weight-loss surgery. However, I adore every curve in her physique. She is the most beautiful woman in my eyes. Additionally, she gave birth to our five children.” Pierce Brosnan
They were married in 2001 in Pierce’s own country and embraced their two sons, Dylan and Paris, as their own children. The two of them have had a beautiful twenty years together, and their devotion only continues to grow.
Just a few days ago, Pierce sent his wife a heartfelt 20th-anniversary message, writing, “Happy anniversary my dear Keely, my love forever increases with you,” and attaching two pictures of the couple, shot 20 years apart and showing the sweet progression of their relationship.
There is no justification for the general public to have anything but wonderful things to say about the couple, but they always manage to do so. Keely’s appearance, notably her weight, appears to be the target of the animosity. For some reason, the general population is practically shocked and disgusted.
Pierce shouldn’t have chosen to get married to a conventionally attractive and age-appropriate person. a person who is not size 0 and does not eerily like a bombshell Why is he marrying an ordinary woman who is reportedly out of his league if he has all the money and power in the world?
Old-fashioned gender assumptions about women and desirability are disproved by his affection for her.
People tend to overlook that you can put on weight and defy expectations of beauty. You don’t have to live in a world where everything depends on how well you fit in and how small you can make yourself. As you become older, other things take precedence over others, and you may no longer require outside approval to boost your confidence and self-belief.
Pierce has stated that he values Keely for who she is, not for how she looks. When you commit to someone, you agree to grow with them and modify your perspective in response to their changes. We wouldn’t have spent millennia attempting to understand the complexity of love if it were a one-time event.
In an interview, Pierce mentioned how some of their family friends had advised surgery to help his wife lose weight, but the former James Bond is unshakeable in his respect for his wife and every facet of her looks. He adores her curves and flaws, and he could care less if some idly-minded people on the internet bemoan her appearance—a stranger’s body they have nothing to do with.
In fact, Pierce went above and beyond to express that he’s always fancied Keely for her demeanor and loving heart. “In the past, I actually loved her for her person, not simply for her beauty, and now I’m loving her even more than she is my children’s mother, and I am extremely proud of her, and I always aim to be worthy of her love,” he stated on Hollywood Star.
In a way, Pierce shouldn’t even respond to the offensive statement, much less explain why he still wants her after 20 years. On the other hand, seeing an older couple demonstrate their affection for one another is absolutely adorable. Furthermore, it’s so typical for older Hollywood celebrities to get involved with attractive, young women who are about thirty years their junior that Pierce’s decision to keep with the same woman and continue their relationship comes out as bizarrely defiant.
It once again highlights the unrealistic demands placed on women’s bodies and appearance; in order to “deserve” love, women must never “let themselves go” and must always be more attractive than men. If they deviate from the norm in any way, they’re essentially giving the men permission to discard them and chase other women at will.
Pierce elevates his wife not because of her perceived beauty but rather because of the part she has played in his life. She saved him from the depths of hopelessness and gave him the chance to grow and find his place in a world so rife with suffering and resentment. The couple’s continued strength is not surprising.
Love has no chance against criticism.
Keely and Pierce are committed to one another and don’t care what people think of them. As you age, you come to understand that attraction and desire are created by an intellectual and emotional connection rather than by foolish ideals.
You spend time with someone not just because they physically excite you but also because they are fundamentally a part of you and you wouldn’t want to be with anyone else. It just implies you value them for reasons other than their physical appearance and conventional ideas of beauty; it doesn’t mean there isn’t any more infatuation left in the tank.
Pierce’s devotion to Keely is proof that you shouldn’t be concerned about what other people think. You’ll be able to achieve enduring fulfillment as long as you keep holding your partner in high regard and are prepared to put up with even the smallest “imperfections.” These viewpoints don’t need to alter anything; they merely serve to serve as a reminder that your love is more important than these pointless discussions that shift with the tides.
