About Pierce Brosnan being more famous than she was:"I am not sure we used that word [jealousy]. We were sitting in the back of a limousine waiting for a shot, and we had a long talk about our insecurities. We acknowledged that we've both had them about each other and we needed to talk about it. It was a good talk. He is charming and funny to work with. He's a very good actor and I realize, in the end, if he does marketing and he promotes himself, then it's really for my good and we really are each other's pal. We are not... [Lire la suite]

But the rumor of Pierce... [Lire la suite]
