In some pictures, Brosnan could be seen taking his belt off as he prepared to go through screening at the airport. The "Survivor" actor was heard saying, "I can't believe this is happening," after being asked to be screened in a private area.

After the screening, he was seen talking with two local police officers after he was finally allowed to pass through security.

Brosnan later went for lunch with his son at a concession in departures area. His representative hasn't responded to any requests for comment.

Brosnan will next be seen in upcoming action-thriller flick "No Escape" alongside Owen Wilson, Lake Bell, Sterling Jerins and Spencer Garrett. Directed by John Erick Dowdle, the movie is scheduled to be released in the US on August 26.
