He may no longer be Bond – but Pierce Brosnan still leaves ladies shaken and stirred.

“Total smooch factor!” That’s how Mamma Mia!‘s director Phyllida Lloyd described his appeal as she made her way into the movie’s New York premiere Wednesday night.

“He’s incredibly smoochy,” concurred producer Judy Craymer, who created the idea for both the Broadway show and the film. “There isn’t a 15-year-old or an 85-year-old who doesn’t love Pierce.”

Not surprisingly, Brosnan’s wife, Keely Shaye Smith joined in the chorus of coworkers singing his praises.

He has “outrageous” kissability, she gushed of her 55-year-old hubby. “If they only knew!”

One woman who would not pucker up for Pierce? Amanda Seyfried.

“He has extreme ‘smooch factor,’ ” the 23-year-old admitted. “But I wouldn’t kiss him because he’s married!”
