Pierce Brosnan’s Sons Dylan and Paris Weigh In on Nepotism Debate

The name’s Brosnan… Dylan and Paris Brosnan.

On Nov. 17, the brothers, who are the sons of James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan and journalist Keely Shaye Smith, accompanied their parents for a glamorous night out at GQ‘s Man of the Year party to celebrate their recent profile with dad in the magazine. Having grown up with an easily recognizable surname, Dylan and Paris weren’t afraid to share their thoughts on the discussion of nepotism when it comes to Hollywood kids.

“I think we need to just be grateful for our blessings,” Paris, 21, told E! News in an exclusive red carpet interview, with his brother noting that he was going to say “the exact same thing” about how they’re “very lucky” to be in the position they’re in.

Paris continued, “It’s always gonna be there and we got to recognize it. At the end of the day, we’re just grateful to be here.”

And while the Brosnan name may open some doors, Paris said he and Dylan, 25, are trying to “pave our own way.”
