Pierce Brosnan, Son Paris Brosnan Hang In Malibu (PHOTO)

Actor Pierce Brosnan got some downtime with son Paris Brosnan over the weekend in Malibu, when photographers snapped the 59-year-old former "James Bond" star and his 12-year-old son strolling with a beverage and skateboard in hand.

Paris is the son of Pierce and wife Keely Shaye Smith. Pierce had previously been married to actress Cassandra Harris, who died of ovarian cancer in 1991. On raising sons and being widowed, the Irish-born Pierce told Fox News recently that his religion helped tide him over in tough times.

"Grace under pressure, faith, Catholic faith, work and work and more work. It’s a devastating thing to befall anyone, to lose a partner, to be a single parent, it is the most overwhelming experience to be caring for children, to try to make ends meet, pay the rent, pay the mortgage, deal with the schools, teachers, homework. I had great support in family and friends," he said.
