Pierce Brosnan got one piece of advice from James Bond predecessor SEAN CONNERY after he landed the coveted role - 'make sure you get paid enough'.

The Irish star first met Connery soon after he began shooting his first outing as superspy 007, 1995's GOLDENEYE.

Brosnan recalls, "I met Connery on one of the Bond films. He said, 'Are they paying you enough?' And I said, 'I think so,' to which he replied, 'Don't let them get away with anything.'"
