DIE ANOTHER DAY star Pierce Brosnan celebrated his 51st birthday in Mexico City on Sunday (16MAY04) - with a group of journalists.

The Irish actor raised a glass of tequila and cut a cake with members of the media covering his latest film The Matador.

Brosnan was serenaded with LAS MANANITAS, the traditional Mexican birthday song, in the upscale Mexico City neighbourhood Coyoacan.

He said his cake was especially delicious because it was the first he had ever received from reporters.
