Pierce Brosnan explains how he failed to Bond with Teri Hatcher

22-Apr-2005 • Bond News

Pierce Brosnan has lifted the lid on his feud with Teri Hatcher when they filmed a James Bond movie together - reports the Daily Mirror (UK).

The 51-year-old Irish-born actor admitted rowing with the Desperate Housewives star because, he claimed, she kept him hanging around on the set of Tomorrow Never Dies.

The former 007 said: "I got very upset with her - she was always keeping me waiting for hours.

"I must admit I let slip a few words which weren't very nice."

He told Italian Vanity Fair he later found out Teri had been suffering from morning sickness. But he did not appear to feel too guilty about his reactions.

Brosnan declared: "It came out one morning that Teri was pregnant and she hadn't been feeling very well. Still, these things happen."

It was also rumoured that during the filming Hatcher deliberately slapped Brosnan hard during a stunt sequence.

And Teri - whose first famous role was Lois Lane in Dean Caine's Superman TV series - then found her career stalling after playing Bond girl Paris Carver in the 1997 movie.

Now she is a hit again and has won a Golden Globe for her performances as Susan in Desperate Housewives - although the show has been plagued by alleged bitchiness between her and co-stars Marcia Cross, Felicity Huffman, Eva Longoria and Nicolette Sheridan.

The Mirror told how a US Vanity Fair photoshoot turned to chaos when Cross raged at Hatcher as she posed in the middle of the five - and Cross and Huffman later snubbed her birthday party.

But Brosnan has had his own pain, he revealed, saying that losing his 007 role after four films was "torture".

He admitted: "Losing Bond hurt me like mad. It was a shock, unexpected.

"Then one bad day I had a telephone call. Dropped. Telling my wife Keely and friends was torture."

Brosnan was dumped by Eon Productions after allegedly demanding a massive pay increase on the £11million he received for Die Another Day.
