Pierce Brosnan’s ‘spiritual journey’ with wife of 22 years: ‘We’ve been down the road’

Pierce Brosnan and his wife of 22 years, Keely Shaye Smith, have been through it all, and they’re still going strong.

“We like each other a lot. We love each other a lot,” Brosnan told Fox News Digital of the secret to their relationship. “And we’ve been down the road, and we’ve seen many, many hardships as families do, as we all do.”

He continued, “But watching someone grow up with you and grow old with you is a very spiritual journey. To watch each other change … whatever it may be, the hair, the waist. But it’s the love in the heart.” 

Brosnan, whose latest film is the action thriller “Fast Charlie,” credits Smith with being “supportive” over the years as a partner and parent.

The Irish-born actor has had a lifelong hidden passion for art: “It’s always been there. Just quietly there.”

He continued, “I’ve always been a painter, an artist at heart. So, it’s a work in progress, just like the acting. You just … keep showing up, and you refine yourself and you refine the work and the message you want to tell the people.”
