Celebrated Hollywood actor Pierce Brosnan opens up about his sadness, mental struggle and share of heartbreak in his life as he lost both his wife and daughter due to cancer.
"I don't look at the cup as half full, believe me. The dark, melancholy Irish black dog sits beside me from time to time." Said Pierce Brosnan in a statement during an interview.
Ovarian cancer is the root of his pain as the actor lost his wife, Cassandra Harris, in the year 1991 and then his dearest daughter Charlotte Brosnan, in the year 2013 due to this disease.
Brosnan also said that he lacked bonding with his father and he wished his father had spent more time with him during his childhood.
"I know what it's like to bring up sons, and it can be a very arduous road. My fatherly instincts are purely my own. They relate back to no one because there was no one." Said the actor.
"I had a Sunday afternoon with him," he said. "A story about this and that had a few pints of Guinness, and we said goodbye. I would have loved to have known him. He was a good whistler and he had a good walk ... that's as much as I know about him." He added.
"You don't need a big home, you need a good table to sit at, a good bed to sleep in, a view, and a great bottle of wine." Pierce Brosnan stated further.
