found this on contactmusic.com, so it might not actually belong to the miscellanious magazine section. but it seems that it is an excerpt from the loaded-interview. is anyone out there willing and able to share the whole interview?
BROSNAN ATTACKS IRELAND'S SMOKING BAN
Suave actor PIERCE BROSNAN has attacked his native Ireland for its recent ban on smoking in public places.
The 51-year-old complains he has to travel to London to enjoy cigarettes and alcohol with friends, because the new law has destroyed pub culture in his homeland.
He says, "I can only enjoy the boozer in London. In Ireland you can't smoke, so that's slowly changing pub culture. It's a shame. The old cigarettes are good.
"When you are with a bunch of mates at 3am and the ciggies are flying around and you're shooting the breeze, owning the world, ruling the universe and having the best ideas, ciggies are great."
I don't know how surprising it can be, he's always been a smoker, off and on for over 30 years. Cassie didn't smoke, she died of Ovarian cancer. Her biggest danger was a lousy doctor and an overall medical system that doesn't take women's health seriously.
I'm not a smoker and don't particular care for it wafting my way but I think the public smoking bans are getting ridiculous. Yes it's unhealthy, so is alcohol but bars can serve that all night but lord forbid someone lights up. I didn't see anything wrong with having smoking and non-smoking sections. And wanting to have a couple of cigarettes at 3am while in a bar (when you probably can't at work or home) shooting the breeze doesn't sound like such a big deal.

I was in Ireland after the ban had been introduced, and, even though I am not a smoker myself and don't like the smell of it, I felt so sorry for those people standing outside the pubs in little groups and looking fairly miserable. It feels a bit like ostracism to me, sending people outside in the rain and cold (there are not that many warm nights in Ireland, one imagines), just because they smoke. Of course it is bad for your health, and I wish the people I know who smoke would quit, but it is not okay to close them out like that.

I don't have a problem with smoking and non-smoking sections, as long as they are set up well, but too many times it's just a matter of noxious fumes drifting from a table across the aisle. :: shrugs ::
Surprising from a man who has been touched by the tragedy of cancer.
Unfortunately for Cassandra Harris, she could have lived the life of a hermit, and still died of Cancer -- hers was the deadly genetic version of Ovarian Cancer that took her mother, herself, and has lead doctors to warn Charlotte to have a hysterectomy at 35, to prevent herself from getting it.

After the Sunset is featured in the German edition of Cinema (January 2005 issue).
It's a two-page article with a couple of pictures and the German-language review that has already been posted in the ATS thread.
Furthermore there are several small pictures of PB in various places throughout the magazine, and in the DVD charts sections stars, among them PB, are being asked about their top five DVDs. I doubt whether they really rated them like that, though. They were probably just asked about movies they liked.
FYI, PB's are:
1. The Godfather 2. Taxi Driver 3. Annie Hall 4. The English Patient 5. The Passion of the Christ
Details please, which magazines have I missed or forgotten. I don't recall seeing any of these specific shots in Maxim or other magazines.
Kelly had a similiar one to the sunglases on the head that she scanned (but a different pose) and I can tell there are other shots that look to be from this photo shoot that I've seen before, similiar in clothes (like the photo he sent for the fan club) but I don't think I've seen any of these specific poses/shots before.
I especially want the last one with his arms over his head 'cause... drool.
I haven't seen that one. The one wiht sunglasses was, indeed, on Kelly's site, but since it's down, i can't tell you what magazine it's from - I thought it was UK Maxim if there was such a thing. You'll have to ask Kelly. I could've sworn I've seen #3 as well - or a very similar one; I don't remember where. Frankly, it's not the best picture in this spread. I prefer the same one you do.

"Nobody wears a tux as well as Pierce Brosnan," says Kaufman of the debonair After the Sunset star (from left: at a Dublin awards show in October; in New York City on Nov. 8; in Beverly Hills in October). "He's a grown-up, he's a man. There's nothing funky or trendy about Pierce. He exudes sophistication and class."
Ladies....this month's Instyle is a must have, for many, many reasons.
There would be only ONE reason for it to be a must have for most of us. I doubt that he's on the cover since it's always a woman so how much is he in the mag and about where because that damn thing is usually a wrist breaker and a chore to leaf through with all the ads.
Oh and this might be a perfect time for you to conquer your scanner.
