'Gutted' Brosnan Speaks Out About Bond

Subscribe to Pierce Brosnan alerts

Pierce Brosnan has further spoken of his anger when movie bosses told him he would no longer be playing superspy James Bond.

The 51-year-old claims he was asked to return as 007, before a sudden telephone call revealed his services were no longer required, leaving him "gutted".

Appearing on British TV show FRIDAY NIGHT WITH JONATHAN ROSS (05NOV04), Brosnan said, "When they told me, I was angry and the conversation was pretty short and sweet.

"They invited me back, and they changed their minds half-way through negotiations. It's hard to find the truth.

"If you get uptight it just does your head in so you've got to let it go. I thought they did me a favour, really...leave while you're on top."

Brosnan starred in four Bond movies, beginning with 1995's GoldenEye.
