Pierce Brosnan and his sons, Dylan and Paris, were recently profiled in GQ's Men of the Year issue. At a party promoting the issue, Dylan and Paris opened up on the red carpet about the nepotism debate.

"I think we need to just be grateful for our blessings," Paris, 21, told E! News. "It's always gonna be there and we got to recognize it. At the end of the day, we're just grateful to be here." Paris added that both he and his brother are trying to "pave their own way," and Dylan shared they're both "very lucky."

The question of nepotism has been a hot topic in recent months (and, always), as TikTok and other social media channels have focused in on what they call "nepo babies." Recently, Lily Rose-Depp pushed back on that label, saying her famous parents didn't help her in her career. Rose-Depp said, "It’s weird to me to reduce somebody to the idea that they’re only there because it’s a generational thing. It just doesn’t make any sense."

Gwyneth Paltrow, too, has said nepotism kids have to work "twice as hard." She told Hailey Bieber, "I really do feel that once your foot is in the door, which you unfairly got in, then you have to work almost twice as hard and be twice as good, because people are ready to pull you down and say 'You don’t belong there' or 'You are only there because of your dad or your mom.'"

In comparison, it seems like the Brosnan boys are taking a very different approach to thinking about how their dad helped their budding careers.
