Pierce Brosnan Slams Tony Blair for His 'Arrogance and Mild Stupidity'

April 01, 2010 07:53:11 GMT


Pierce Brosnan has taken aim at former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, branding him a "hollow man" who faltered politically due to his "mild stupidity". The former "James Bond" studied footage of Blair as part of his research for the politician he plays in Roman Polanski's new film "The Ghost Writer" - because he was convinced the former leader was the inspiration for the character.

And his look back over Blair's career was far from impressive. Brosnan's studies led him to believe the former Prime Minister Blair thought he was able to head a country, despite lacking the required skills. The actor tells Empire magazine, "I looked at his speeches and his interaction and his public stance. I went to the book (adapted for the film) and here's a man who's come down from Cambridge (revered U.K. university) with all the social graces and charm."
