Pierce Brosnan Talks About Losing First Wife & Daughter to Ovarian Cancer

Pierce Brosnan looks super sharp in this new feature for the April 2017 issue of Esquire magazine.

Here’s what the 63-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On the journey of raising children without having had a father figure himself: “I know what it’s like to bring up sons and it can be a very arduous road. My fatherly instincts are purely my own. They relate back to no one, because there was no one.”

On losing his first wife, daughter, and producing partner to ovarian cancer: “I don’t look at the cup as half full, believe me. The dark, melancholy Irish black dog sits beside me from time to time.”

On his greatest indulgences in life, his two houses in Malibu and Hawaii: “You don’t need a big home. You need a good table to sit at, a good bed to sleep in, a view, and a great bottle of wine.”
