Pierce Brosnan Can Eat Fire

When Pierce Brosnan first played James Bond back in 1995’s Goldeneye, he pretty much cemented himself as a badass in my eyes (even if he did then go and star in Mamma Mia years later and butcher every song he sang). However, what makes Brosnan even cooler is the fact that when he was just 16 he learned how to eat fire from a teacher at an acting workshop. Brosnan spent the next three years as a professional fire eater for circuses but has since given up performing the skill after an accident occurred back in 2004 while he filmed an episode of The Muppets.
