Ban on whale hunting
Brosnan wants ban on whale hunting
source ; contactmusic.com
Actor-turned-environmentalist PIERCE BROSNAN is urging U.S. government officials to take a stronger stand against whale hunting in international waters.
The Irish actor has become passionate about preserving marine life since narrating new Disneynature documentary Oceans, which explores the seas and what lies beneath them.
And he’s outraged after learning whale hunting has continued in Japan, Norway and Iceland despite a global whaling moratorium, which took effect in 1986.
The U.S. and other anti-whaling countries recently sought to strike a deal to create an international monitoring system to ensure a steadily-declining whale hunt.
But Brosnan wants officials to take a no-tolerance policy: “They (U.S. government) seem to be in favour of allowing Japan and Norway to go out and hunt whales again. It means they can go out there and start killing whales. It’s in moratorium so it’s not determined how many they can kill. Normally, there’s no justification for killing these creatures. Scientifically, there’s no justification. So if you want to do something about stopping the possible slaughter of whales, then you have to pick up the phone and call The White House.”
And the movie star hopes his new nature film will encourage youngsters to fight to save the world’s whales.
He adds, “That is why this film is so important to be seen. I think it will inspire many young people to do good things for the ocean… That is why I’m so passionate about this movie, so people can go see it and hopefully oppose this deal agreement.
Please join me tonight in raising a glass of good cheer to all our Irish brothers and sisters! I will be spending an enchanting evening filled with music, song, dance and poetry readings at Royce Hall with my fellow countrymen and conductor /composer Eimear Noon. Yours truly will be reading W.B. Yeat’s, Easter 1916.
I have just returned home after completing principal photography on "I Don’t Know How She Does It" in New York City with the lovely and incomparable Sara Jessica Parker. Based on Allison Pearson’s bestselling book and directed by Douglas McGrath, the talented cast of this romantic comedy also includes Greg Kinnear, Olivia Munn and Kelsey Grammer.
I was also in Ireland recently to introduce Her Excellency Mary McAleese at the Irish Film and Television Awards (where I happily collected an award for Best Supporting Actor for "The Ghostwriter"). I then had the privilege of speaking to a group of Irish film students associated with Cinemagic (a Belfast-based organization) at Pepperdine University. It is inspiring to watch the next generation of artists come up through the ranks.
Next up, I will be working in Italy on a film tentatively titled "All You Need Is Love," with Susan Bier who won an Oscar this year for the Best Foreign Language Film, "In a Better World." This delightful love story mixes the lighthearted with serious and humorous and begins production on the Almalfi coast this spring. I encourage you check out Susan’s movies, including "After the Wedding" and "Open Hearts" to name a few.
This summer look for "Salvation Boulevard" in theatres near you. Based on a novel of the same name, Salvation Boulevard written by Larry Beinhart and directed by George Radliff, follows a former Deadhead-turned-born-again-Christian who finds himself on the run from fundamentalist members of his mega church who will do anything to protect their larger than life pastor (yours truly). Greg Kinnear, Ed Harris, Marisa Tomei, Sam Elliot, Jim Gaffigan, and Jennifer Connolly contributed to this hilarious all-star cast.
I am deeply saddened and distressed by the tragedy, loss of life, suffering and hardship that has befallen Japan. There are no words to adequately express my feelings of sorrow. Life turns in a moment and always reminds us what a gift each day truly is. My thoughts and prayers are with our Japanese friends at this difficult time.
The 56-year-old actor has three biological and two adopted children with his late wife Cassandra Harris and current wife Keely Shaye Smith. Despite all the success he has had in his acting career, which has included a stint as legendary British spy James Bond, Pierce insists he is a “family man” at heart.
“There are many things I'm thankful for," he said. “I'm a family man within this crazy, egotistical profession and it's my sanctuary. It makes what I do all the more meaningful.”
Pierce’s first wife Cassandra died of ovarian cancer in 1991. They raised three children, Charlotte, 38, Christopher, 37, and Sean, 26, together.
The actor married Keely in 2001, and the pair have two sons, Dylan, 13, and seven-year-old Paris.
Pierce says he is in a very “happy” place in his personal and professional lives at the moment, and hopes his luck continues into the future.
“I've been blessed to be able to afford the good things of life," he told British newspaper The Daily Mirror. "I don't know if it would have happened if I hadn't had Bond in my career. I'm in a good place creatively. It's a fertile time... finding parts, acting, testing myself in roles and shaking up what went before.”
Every year, The Genesis Awards pays tribute to the major news and entertainment media for producing outstanding works that raise public awareness of animal issues. The 24th annual Genesis Awards was Saturday, March 20, 2010 at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, Calif.
The 56-year-old actor shared that he realizes he’ll always be James Bond but admits that the character had hit a rut between Roger Moore and Daniel Craig: “It was a no-man’s-land. You never felt the killing was harsh enough, that the sex was hard enough. And you still had these clunky one-liners, which were always embarrassing.”
Pierce has not watched his successors’ work, though he did try to view Casino Royale once, on a plane: “I figured 37,000 feet was a good distance to watch it from, but then the machine broke on me – twice. I thought, ‘F–k it. He’s the man now. And fair play to him.’”
