Pierce Brosnan can't wait to return to Sorrento, Italy, after falling in love with the place while shooting his new movie Love Is All You Need there. The former James Bond admits he felt so guilty about his surroundings while making the low-budget romance without his wife Keely by his side, he had to lie to her on a daily basis and try to persuade her he was having a miserable time. He tells BlogTalkRadio.com, "Keely was finishing building the house in Malibu, which was a huge undertaking, and I was working to pay for it! I would call her up and say, 'Oh, it's a horrible place. Nobody talks to me and I'm miserable. I can't wait to come home. It's raining.' "She saw through it! It was incredible. I had this 16th century villa in the heart of Sorrento. I drew the drapes every morning and there was Mount Vesuvius... It's the most magical place to be. The film was not a big budget movie so I thought I'd just be in some lovely hotel somewhere, but the producer found a villa for me." And Brosnan insists his fans will easily be able to follow his adventures in Italy: "You've got to go down past the Zarrison's Gate and figure out where I lived. I'm sure if you knocked on their door they'd be able to tell you where the Irish James Bond hung out! There was a couple there who looked after me."
