Pierce Brosnan reunites with his 'Mrs Doubtfire' costars 25 years after film's release
The 65-year-old actor appeared in the photograph in which he was seen with his 'Mrs Doubtfire' costars - Matthew Lawrence, Mara Wilson, and Lisa Jakub
Ex-James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan was reunited for the first time in 25 years with three costars he had in a very special film. The 65-year-old actor was seen in an Insstagram posted photograph with his 'Mrs. Doubtfire' costars - Matthew Lawrence, Mara Wilson, and Lisa Jakub.
The film revolves around actor Daniel Hillard (played by the late Robin Williams) who wears the disguise of an elderly female housekeeper whom he names Mrs. Euphegenia Doubtfire so that he can spend time with his three children after going through an intense divorce battle with his wife Miranda (played by Sally Field).
Jakub, who played the oldest of the three Hillard children Lydia, shared the photo on her Twitter page on October 24 in which all four of them can be seen smiling at the camera. Thirty nine-year-old Jakub captioned the image: "So this just happened. #mrsdoubtfire #reunion #25yearslater."
Jakub also uploaded a video on her Instagram page the same day where Brosnan can be seen holding his phone to the camera and showing a picture to his on-screen step-children of themselves as children at the premiere of the film in 1993. He can be heard saying in the video: "Here you go: At the premiere of Mrs. Doubtfire and here we are, we pull back slowly, tada!"
He continues by saying: "Love you, love you all so much. So good to be a part of your lives. I want to get into the picture as well," and then steps up next to them to take a photo. Wilson says: "Stepdad!" to which Brosnan replies while the photos are clicked: "Stepdad Stu!"

Jakub put out a small teaser for the reunion on October 23 where she shared a video of herself in an airport on the way to meet her film family. She said in the video: "So I feel like I pretty much live in hotels and airports these days. So hi from another airport. I am on my way to Los Angeles and I am doing that because of a certain significant anniversary that is coming up next month and, uh, a couple of fake siblings that I used to have. Any guesses? I am super excited by the way. More to come on this so stay tuned. Bye!"
The 1993 film Mrs. Doubtfire earned more than $200 million at the US box office at the time and grossed over $440 million worldwide. It was made with a budget of around $25 million. Williams was awarded the Golden Globe in 1994 for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy for playing the role of the hilarious housekeeper. The film will be celebrating its 25th anniversary on November 24.
