JAMES BOND star Pierce Brosnan was stopped by police as he whizzed through California in his Aston Martin Vanquish, but used his charm to escape a fine.

The Die Another Day actor, 50, received a warning in Malibu from the police officer before he was allowed to drive off.

An onlooker says. "Pierce obviously used his charm - he didn't even get out of the car to speak to the cop."
