6. Pierce Brosnan
The first on the list would definitely be Pierce Brosnan. Brosnan was born in Naven, County Meath in Ireland on May 16. This 1953 born actor was voted as the “Sexiest Man Alive” in 2001 by People Magazine. Mentioning any other movie before his James Bond stint would be an insult to this versatile star. He brought in a new style and suave to the Bond legacy making him a legend of sorts.
Movies like the Goldeneye (1995), Tomorrow Never Dies (1997), and The World Is Not Enough (2002) are memorable all thanks to Brosnan. The fact that Die Another Day bagged almost half-billion dollars worldwide tells you something about Brosnan’s star persona. Not only are his Bond films worth mentioning, but this attractive star featured in movies like The Thomas Crown Affair (1999), Dante’s Peak (1997) and The Lawnmower Man (1992) which earned millions. Talk about being hot and bankable too!
