Former JAMES BOND star Pierce Brosnan gave fans in Spain a fright after he stepped out with a black eye over the weekend (20-21Oct12).

The Irish actor, who starred in 007 movie GoldenEye, was photographed sporting a heavily bruised left eye during a golfing session at the Camp De Mar resort in Majorca.

He appeared to have taken a bad beating, but a spokesperson insists the injury was fake.

Brosnan's representative tells Tmz.com, "All good. Nothing happened. The black eye is movie make-up. Pierce was shooting a fight scene on (A) Long Way Down."

Brosnan is currently in Spain to film the movie with co-stars Aaron Paul, Toni Collette, Rosamund Pike and Imogen Poots.
