PIERCE BROSNAN has revealed he doesn’t miss the character that propelled him to worldwide fame – James Bond. The Irish actor took on the secret agent role for GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies, The World Is Not Enough and Die Another Day. “I enjoyed my time as Bond but I don’t miss him – I don’t have any desire to do Bond again,” he told Reveal. “I love who I am as an actor right now.” Pierce, who acts alongside ROBERT PATTINSON in Remember Me, admitted he’s aware of his shortcomings now that he’s 56. “I’m aware of my lack of stamina, particularly working with a young cast on Remember Me, with Robert Pattinson, the latest heartthrob. Things do rattle and shake at times, but that’s the challenge of life anyway,” he said.
RUSSELL BRAND has said he might as well just watch TV on his stag night now he’s quit drugs, drink and casual sex. The 35-year-old comedian is marrying I Kissed A Girl singer Katy Perry, 25, in October, but as a former drug and sex addict his best man will have to organise a very tame stag party. Russell told Heat magazine: “I don’t take drugs any more, I don’t drink, so what do you do? I can’t have sex with people on the stag night, so what’s the point? I might as well watch television!”
