By this time, we’ve only been accustomed to certain Hollywood romantic archetypes.
Young, cute couples who don’t mind posting about their rapidly growing romance on social media, co-stars who have discreet on-set relationships while being looked into for adultery, and an elderly man in his sixties or seventies who is openly romancing a young, beautiful woman half his age are all examples. Instead of opposing these paradigms, we see them passively and accept them as usual.
Most analysts assumed Pierce Brosnan would finish last in this category, like many of his peers in the field. He was the perfect candidate, yet he cleverly and unapologetically rejected these assumptions. For context, he has been happily married to Keely for twenty years and they have two children together.
Although their journey has been as passionate and beautiful as one could want, poor Keely has recently become the target of venomous hatred for an awful and completely unjustified cause.
Pierce, thankfully, resisted. He didn’t think twice to defend his wife in front of the judgmental public and to express his unwavering love and support for her. We can deduce the following from his actions:
Pierce says he “loves every curve” of his wife’s body, regardless of what others may think.
Pierce was a widower when he first met American journalist Keely Shaye Smith in 1994. On December 28, 1991, Cassandra Harris, his first wife, passed suddenly from ovarian cancer. Pierce was obviously devastated by her death and unsure of how to begin his recovery after being left to look after three children by himself. Keely came into his life at precisely the right moment, and with her support, he was able to step up and take on the difficult but rewarding chores associated with fatherhood.
She was given weight loss surgery by her friends. I do, however, like every curve in her body. In my opinion, she is the most gorgeous woman. She also gave birth to our family’s beautiful children.
In 2001, they were united in marriage in Pierce’s native nation, and they raised their two sons, Dylan and Paris. They’ve enjoyed a wonderful twenty years together, and their love just keeps getting stronger. Recently, Pierce sent his wife a poignant 20th-anniversary card, stating, “Happy anniversary my beloved Keely, my love forever expands with you,” and including two images of the couple, taken 20 years apart and illustrative of their wonderful relationship’s development.
The public should always have nothing but positive things to say about the couple, yet somehow they always manage to find something negative. Keely’s physical attributes, particularly her weight, seem to be the focus of the hostility. The general public is essentially startled and horrified for whatever reason. If he has all the wealth and power in the world, why is he reportedly marrying a common woman who is out of his league? We think we should look at the person, and not her looks.
His love for her disproves outdated gender stereotypes about women and attractiveness.
People frequently ignore the possibility of gaining weight and defying aesthetic standards. You don’t have to live in a society where success is determined by how well you blend in and how little of an impact you can have on others. As you become older, other things come first, and you could find that you don’t need other people’s approval to make you feel more confident and self-assured. Keely is valued by Pierce for who she is, not for how she looks, as he has said. When you commit to someone, you acknowledge your willingness to change your perspective in reaction to their changes and to grow with them. If love was a one-time event, we wouldn’t have spent millennia trying to comprehend its intricacy.
Although some of their family friends had suggested surgery to assist Pierce’s wife lose weight, the former James Bond is unwavering in his appreciation for his wife and every aspect of her appearance, as he said in an interview. He doesn’t mind if some idly-minded internet users complain about the way she looks because she is a total stranger with a body they have nothing to do with. He loves her curves and flaws.
In fact, Pierce went above and beyond to say how much he admired Keely’s smile and kind heart. ” The fact that she is the mother of my children has made me love her even more. I am tremendously proud of her, and I always strive to be worthy of her love,” he said. “In the past, I actually loved her for her person, not just for her beauty,” he said.
Pierce’s decision to stick with the same woman and continue dating her comes off as oddly defiant because older Hollywood celebrities frequently date attractive, young women who are around thirty years their junior. The excessive expectations placed on women’s bodies and beauty are once again brought to light; in order to “deserve” love, women must never “let themselves go” and must consistently be more gorgeous than men. They are essentially giving the men permission to discard them and pursue other women at will if they stray from the norm in any manner.
Instead of praising his wife for her appearance, Pierce does so because of the role she has played in his life. She offered him the chance to grow and find his place in a world so full of misery and resentment by rescuing him from the depths of hopelessness. It is not unexpected that the couple is still going strong.
Criticism has no chance against love.
Pierce and Keely are devoted to one another and don’t give a damn about what others think of them. As you get older, you learn that rational and emotional connection, not irrational ideals, is what creates attraction and desire. You spend time with someone because they fundamentally make up a part of you and you wouldn’t want to be with anybody else, not just because they physically excite you. It doesn’t mean there isn’t any more infatuation left in the tank; it merely suggests that you value them for reasons other than their physical appearance and conventional notions of beauty.
Pierce’s love for Keely serves as evidence that you shouldn’t worry about what other people think. As long as you continue to hold your spouse in high respect and are willing to put up with even the smallest “imperfections,” you’ll be able to find lasting fulfillment. These opinions really shouldn’t change anything; rather, they are only a reminder that your love is more significant than these divisive debates that come and go with the waves.
