The name's Father, Father Christmas: Pierce Brosnan shows off Santa inspired white goatee
It's just a week until Christmas and it appears that one Hollywood star has decided to grow a white goatee, perhaps in a nod to Father Christmas.
Pierce Brosnan,59, was seen showing off a spot of light coloured facial hair as he shopped in Malibu.
As well as the festive facial hair, the former Bond star was sporting greying locks as he strolled in the sunshine in casual clothes.

The British actor may well have been stocking up on some Christmas gifts.
Brosnan starred as James Bond in films from 1995 until 2004.
While Pierce's best known role is playing the secret, his last film saw him turn all emotional for a romantic role.
