Pierce Brosnan took to social media to issue a stern message to his fans and friends, warning them to not be sucked into a false bit of news spreading around about a supposed upcoming appearance.

It was reported prior to the weekend that the 70-year-old actor would be exhibiting his art for three days in December at the SMS Art Gallery in Nottingham.

Not only was the exhibition marketed as his first United Kingdom art show, but it was also written that fans would be charged £500 for an exclusive meet and greet.

However, Pierce shut that down with a message on his Instagram, which reads: "To my fans and friends, I will not be exhibiting my artwork at the SMS Art Gallery in Nottingham in December 2023."

He continued: "Reports that the SMS Art Gallery has been engaged to host an exhibition are false. I would never charge for a meet and greet." 

Pierce even revealed that legal action had been taken against the gallery in question, adding: "My attorney has contacted the gallery and sent a cease and desist letter. I look forward to having an exhibition in the UK in the future and, when the time comes, you will hear from me. Peace, РВ."

Fans responded to his message with praise for the Irish actor, leaving comments like: "That's class. All the way," and: "Legend not charging! So many A-Listers would take the loot," as well as: "You're the man, Pierce."

On their website, the gallery advertised tickets ranging from £15 to £500 for the gallery and various options to interact with the James Bond star, promising a "remarkable exhibition [that] offers a unique opportunity to engage with the multifaceted artist and cultural icon."

In a Vanity Fair interview during the exhibition, Pierce said of his wife's contribution to the show: "I never thought about having my paintings going out into the world, but Keely documented it all and said, 'Let's try for a show.'

Keely herself added: "Pierce's work is deeply personal so that's why I thought we should show it. Many of these paintings have been in storage…and it occurred to me that we should share them and host an exhibition where people could see a different facet of Pierce.

"I think for many of his fans, they will appreciate the opportunity to see this other creative side of him. Everywhere he goes and every movie set he's on, he always sets up a studio and paints. What you see at the exhibition is the result."
