How Did Pierce Brosnan's Wife Look In Her Youth? He Married A Beauty!

June 24, 2019

Many are surprised when they see a plain-looking woman next to a real heartthrob. But there are many happy families that prove that appearance is not as important as personality and love.

Famous actors often take their spouses along to the red carpets. Gorgeous couples are admired, while some cause bewilderment. Looking at the special ones of some idols, people often wonder: what is it that he's found in her? This is probably all too familiar to Pierce Brosnan and Keely Shaye Smith.

The couple got married in 2001. Keely is a Hollywood diva, she’s a journalist, writer, and TV host, and few people remember that she was once a model and even starred in movies.

Ms. Smith met Mr. Brosnan back in 1994 in Mexico when she attended one party with the intention of interviewing actor Ted Danson. Their relationship developed very rapidly, and both their sons, Dylan and Paris, were born even before their romantic Irish wedding.

During all the years of marriage, the spouses have hardly ever separated. Despite the fact that Keely had a lot of her own work and young children, she accompanied her husband to all social events and often visited him at filming sets far from home.

Looking at the pictures of this slender beauty, it becomes clear that her appearance was probably one of the reasons why Pierce fell in love with the girl.

Not only did she help the actor bounce back after the loss of his first spouse (we recall Cassandra Harris died of cancer in 1991), but also took their 3 children in as her own. Unfortunately, Pierce’s only daughter, Charlotte, also lost her battle to cancer in 2013.

Pierce and Keely are considered one of the strongest couples in Hollywood. For years, they’ve supported different charities and environmental causes. Also, they are known to be incredibly close and devoted to each other.

However, for years, besides their adorable relationship, there has been another subject widely discussed in the media: Keely's appearance. It would seem that the rich woman could have easily done like many others and got in “Hollywood” shape in no time.

Keely gained weight during the pregnancies, but it didn’t go away. It may well be the result of problems with the thyroid gland, as reported by some media. It is worth noting that the actor’s wife doesn’t look worse with a few extra pounds: yes, she’s not as slim as she used to be, but she hasn’t lost any of her former beauty, has she?

Women around the world strive to conform to certain ideals, to change for the sake of their beloved. This task was probably more difficult or less of a priority for Keely. And she proved that mutual feelings don’t depend on how much a woman physically transforms over the years.
