Pierce Brosnan’s Friends ‘Offered’ His Wife Weight Loss Surgery But He Loves Her ‘Every Curve’

Hollywood relationships are exciting and complicated, whether it be a short-lived romance between two young stars or a long-term union gone awry. For Pierce Brosnan and his wife, their romance has exceeded the test of time, as they have been married for an astonishing 21 years. Every time they are spotted together, it’s evident that they are wonderfully in love. However, there has been some controversy surrounding their relationship in recent years.

When Brosnan, 69, and Keely Shaye Smith, 58, first got married, everyone was mesmerized by how absolutely stunning they were as a couple, as they were both incredibly attractive. They had met back in April 1994 and were later married in Ireland on Aug. 4, 2001. Together they have two sons: Dylan Brosnan and Paris Brosnan.

After Smith gave birth to their two children, she put on some extra weight, resulting in harsh criticism pouring in about her appearance. People may have been surprised to learn that the former James Bond had remained with someone whose looks had altered so drastically, but Brosnan and Smith's relationship has repeatedly shown that it goes deeper than what meets the eye.

No matter what anyone says about his wife or what conventional beauty standards entail,

Brosnan has often proved that his wife’s lovely personality is what matters most to him. Love is obviously not only skin deep in this relationship as Brosnan has gone above and beyond to defend his wife and their love to the public, no matter what either of them looks like.

Brosnan is an Irish actor primarily recognized for his portrayal as secret agent James Bond in four of the James Bond films, including “GoldenEye,” “Tomorrow Never Dies,” “The World Is Not Enough” and “Die Another Day.” He has also portrayed the character in a variety of video games in the same universe.

After leaving school at the age of 16, Brosnan went on to study at the Drama Centre in London, England, for three years. After finding work as a stage actor, he made his way to television and film, with one of his first breakthrough roles being in the TV series “Remington Steele,” which ran from 1982 until 1987. Following that, he enjoyed greater success with movies like "The Fourth Protocol" and "Mrs. Doubtfire." He became famous and prosperous all over the globe for playing James Bond in a number of movies, which propelled him to celebrity almost immediately.

However, Brosnan has had his fair share of struggles over the course of his life. He was married to his first wife, Cassandra Harris, for 11 years before she unfortunately passed away from ovarian cancer. Sean Brosnan, the couple's only biological child, was born to them. Harris had two children from a previous marriage, Charlotte and Christopher, whom Brosnan adopted after their father died in 1986.

Facing so many hardships was challenging for Brosnan, but luckily he had Smith by his side to support him and help him in any way possible. Smith has had a number of jobs over the years, including being an actress, journalist, author and television host. Some of the places people may recognize her include “General Hospital,” “Unsolved Mysteries with Dennis Farina" and more.

Brosnan has defended his wife throughout their marriage since she has always been there for him in his most trying circumstances. According to Stylecraze, Smith gained weight after giving birth to their two children and has kept it on. While some people have humiliated her for this, Brosnan continuously stood by her side, offering her the highest love and respect. The two had continually stared at one other as though they were falling in love all over again. As per The Sun, Brosnan even said, “When Keely looks at me, I go weak at the knees.”

The former Bond actor has been candid about how his wife enabled him to fully mourn and cope with the devastating losses in his life and helped him get through a difficult period in his life after the deaths of his first wife and daughter. “Keely has always been kind and compassionate and encouraged me to mourn Cassie,” Brosnan said. Added him:

"I think of her all the time. I ­suppose Keely is my North Star, always looking out for me."

It has always been Smith’s personality and heart of gold that have been the reasons why Brosnan has been so in love with his wife. This became even more apparent when trolls online began to publicly make fun of Smith's weight. In 2021, reality TV personality Jenelle Evans from the show "Teen Mom 2" shared photos of the couple on her Facebook and made derogatory comments about how Smith looked. Her spouse replied back with harsh comments too, and finally, Facebook even had to step in.

Evans provided two side-by-side images of Brosnan and Smith – one from early in their relationship and the other much more recent. Both images show them on a beach with their naked bodies on full display. Evans tagged her husband and wrote, "This is us." He promptly wrote back, "We do not look that fat," to which Evans replied, "Close to it," alongside a laughing emoji. Their harsh taunts didn't go ignored, though, as Facebook granted them a temporary ban on the network.

Brosnan doesn't seem bothered by cruel taunts from strangers online, and he certainly has no issue with his wife's body. But it's not only random passersby who have commented on Smith's weight. Brosnan revealed that even people they know have said some things. He stated:

"Friends offered her surgery to reduce her weight. But I strongly admire every curve of her body ... She is the most beautiful woman in my eyes. And also because she had our five children."

Also from him:

"In the past, I truly loved her for her person, not only for her beauty, and now I’m loving her even more that she is my children’s mother. And I am very proud of her, and I always seek to be worthy of her love."

Brosnan and Smith have remained by each other's sides through all that life has thrown at them, and they still appear to be deeply in love. Brosnan shared a charming before-and-after image with a nice note on Instagram to mark the couple's 20th wedding anniversary. “Happy anniversary my darling Keely, my love forever grows with you …” the actor wrote. It seems like love is always in the air when it comes to this Hollywood couple.
