Troubled Actor Has Rocky Relationships With Everyone

boxer 1SOLVED!

UPDATED!

[Blind Gossip] We thought we’d give you a little peek behind the scenes of a famous family. It’s especially timely because one of the members of the family has been causing trouble again.

This celebrity couple had a rocky relationship from day one. And by rocky, we mean Rocky.

The Actor has an anger problem. And a substance abuse problem. Put the two together, and he’ll take a swing at whoever gets in his way during a binge. His crazy, belligerent behavior continues to take its toll on his ex and their entire family and his job.

His Actress ex knew about his problem/s from the beginning. But he was handsome and famous and has more than one famous relative, so she constantly made excuses for him. Fortunately, she was able to extricate herself from the situation before it was too late.

She hasn’t really moved on, though. She is gorgeous and available, but have you seen her out on a single date this year? No. Why not? Because she is scared of her ex! He still calls the Actress – usually after he has been binging – to alternately yell at her and to beg her to come back. She isn’t about to go back to him, but she is also scared to date someone else, because she knows that he is crazy jealous and loses control rather easily.

His kids from a previous relationship don’t want to spend with him either. We do not know exactly what is behind that – if it’s his add*ction, his anger issues, or something else – but it’s never a good sign when even your kids want to avoid you.

Finally, his celebrity parents are having troubles in their own relationship, some of which can be attributed to their constant fights over the Actor. The Dad makes excuse after excuse for him – perhaps because The Actor had a disastrous childhood – while the Mom has been calling for rehab for years.

Of course, The Actor swears that he is going to clean up his act. After every crazy binge and fight he swears that he will never drink again. But it always does. First rule of addiction: Addicts are liars.

It affects his work, too. Everyone in the industry knows he has a serious problem. Some still hire him. Some avoid him like the plague. He’s lost out on more than one major role because of his drinking. How can you have someone anchor a franchise when you don’t even know if he’s going to show up for work the next day?

We still think he has a chance at a good life and a long, successful career… but only if he goes to reh*b. Fortunately for him, Mom (who can be an incredibly demanding woman) is the loudest voice in the room right now. We should know in a week or so if she got through to him.

josh brolin 1SOLVED!

The Actor: Josh Brolin

The Actress: Diane Lane

Dad: James Brolin

Mom: Barbra Streisand

Franchise: Batman or Jurassic Park or Star Wars

Josh Brolin has entered rehab for treatment for alcohol addiction.

Maybe now his estranged wife, Diane Lane, can relax for a few weeks without worrying about Josh calling her. Perhaps she can even sneak in a date or two.

Maybe James Brolin can also finally relax. Josh’s alcoholism had become one long argument in his marriage to Barbra Streisand.

If there is a hero in this story, it just might be… Barbra Streisand!

While James basically told her to “butt out” of his adult son’s life, Babs never backed down and never gave up. Babs has never wavered from her position of Josh needing serious and ongoing professional help to deal with his anger and addiction issues.  She may not have been Josh’s birth mother, but she certainly cares about his well-being just as much as any blood relative ever could. Even after the chatter quieted down about Josh’s last drunk fight debacle, Babs did not. It took her a little longer than we expected (two weeks instead of one), but her persistence finally paid off. Good for her!

Josh Brolin may have screwed himself out of three major franchises with his antics. However, he is still a young an and will have plenty of chances ahead for a major franchise after he cleans up his act.

Josh was considered for the role of Batman, but lost out to Ben Affleck. Josh was then supposed to be taking the lead role in the next chapter of the Jurassic Park franchise. However, just a couple of days after the November 2 fight, he got the boot from Jurassic Park. His team tried to spin it that Josh “voluntarily quit” because he has his eye on the next Star Wars film, but that’s not true. Josh was fired from Jurassic Park, and he has not been offered a role in Star Wars.

From Us Weekly:

Josh Brolin Goes to Rehab

Josh Brolin is seeking help for substance abuse. The 45-year-old actor checked into rehab recently in Northern California, sources exclusively confirm to Us Weekly.

“He realized he needed help and is committed to his sobriety,” an insider tells Us.

The news comes shortly after Brolin was caught on tape allegedly getting into a drunken fistfight with an unknown male at O’Brien’s Irish Pub in Santa Monica, Calif. on Saturday, Nov. 2. TMZ reported that the incident occurred near the front entrance of the bar after it closed at 2 a.m. The fight came to an end, however, with Brolin sharing a hug with the other man. That same weekend, Brolin was also caught on camera getting into an alleged verbal altercation with a cab driver at a Los Angeles Del Taco drive-thru.

On Monday, Nov. 4, Brolin told TMZ that he was done with drinking for good. When asked if he regretted the incidents from over the weekend, the Gangster Squad actor said, “Absolutely, it won’t be happening again.”

“Are you going to be laying off the booze a bit?” TMZ asked. “That’s it,” Brolin said. “Completely done.”

Brolin and his now ex-wife Diane Lane exclusively told Us Weekly in February 2008 that they were divorcing after eight years of marriage. The divorce has yet to be finalized.

Congratulations to Teacher Kat for being first with the correct answer!

UPDATE!

If you were hoping for a reconciliation between Josh Brolin and Diane Lane, you can stop hoping. Their divorce was just finalized!

We hope that Diane Lane (That’s her official name now) can find some peace now, as well as a good relationship with a loving, sober man who treats her with kindness and respect.

From TMZ via The New York Daily News:

Josh Brolin and Diane Lane’s divorce is final after nine years of marriage, reports TMZ.

The 48-year-old “Unfaithful” actress, who initiated divorce proceedings in her February filing, has reportedly decided against seeking spousal support. In fact, the duo, who married in 2004, are said to be settling their financial arrangements privately for their split, which she indicated was due to “irreconcilable differences.”

Not only did she drop her husband but she also departed from using his last name as she reportedly restored her moniker to simply Diane Lane without the Brolin.

        Read somewhere that he was the front runner for Batman in the Man of Steel sequel. Obviously he lost out to Ben Affleck.

    • Booboo1068 says

      Glad she got out and that his mother is known to be tough lady. Let’s hope he goes to rehab before someone gets hurt or dies. (Including the Actor).

    • lily is my puppy says

      My first thought, too. I will never see a Josh Brolin movie after reading about him hitting her while he was drunk. I can’t even look at his face — he looks like someone who is going to explode.

  1. TeacherKat says

    Josh Brolin
    Diane Lane
    James Brolin
    Babs
    Um….the new Jurassic park movie? Dunno about that one.

    There have been divorce rumors recently about James and Barbara, and Josh was just in another drunken brawl.

    • Booboo1068 says

      This is a good guess as well except I’m not sure you could refer to Charlie’s recent ex Brooke as “getting out” and I doubt he calls begging her to come back. Plus Denise is still in his life and Charlie’s oldest daughter is also in his life.

      • MikeInSanJose says

        I thought the same about Rocky, but I think that’s wrong. Sly wrote the Rocky script and one of his requirements for selling the script was that he would be playing the lead.

        From the Wiki: “United Artists liked Stallone’s script, and viewed it as a possible vehicle for a well-established star such as Robert Redford, Ryan O’Neal, Burt Reynolds, or James Caan. Stallone appealed to the producers to be given a chance to star in the film. He later said that he would never have forgiven himself if the film became a success with someone else in the lead. He also knew that producers Irwin Winkler’s and Robert Chartoff’s contract with the studio enabled them to “greenlight” a project if the budget was kept low enough.”

  6. august says

    Actor: Charlie Sheen/ Carlos Estevez
    Actress: Denise Richards.
    Dad: Martin Sheen
    Franchise: Anger Management.
    Miss Richards is asking NOT to have Carlos’s kids ( they are too violent ) anymore so some things going on.
    Whether wrong or right it was a gut feeling once hearing she doesn’t want his kids anymore.

    • YogaGirl says

      just curious are you talking about the twin boys being violent – great job in figuring it out

      • august says

        Charlie’s twins yes, that is what SHE is saying is the reason she wanting stop caring for them.

    • mugofmead111 says

      I thought of Charlie Sheen right away too, but I’m not sure how the “franchise” thing fits (and the Major League movies were years ago).

      That whole situation with Charlie and Brooke Mueller is a hot mess. When your *previous* ex-wife is taking care of the kids from your *last* marriage because your *last* ex-wife is in and out of rehab, you know you (and your kids!) have major problems. Plus I just read that Brooke Mueller tried to get a restraining order against Charlie…and failed. With Denise not wanting to take care of the twins anymore, things seem to be coming to a head.

      Does “rocky” refer to crack/cocaine rocks?

      Unfortunately Josh Brolin’s mom Jane has been dead for years (she died when he was 27). So I think they’re talking about Barbara Streisand for the mom. The rest is spot on.

    Josh Brolin, Diane Lane, James Brolin, Barbra (is she really his “mom” though?). No idea on the franchise.

      his bio mom died a long time ago, so yeah that leaves babs as his step mom, she certainly fits the clues

      Ben affleck always was Batman’s first choice for Warner Bros since the end of Nolan/Bale era

      • GossipProblem says

        Heard Josh was the front runner (but obviously Warner wanted Ben so I’m sure they used Josh’s alcoholism and rage as reason not to hire him –> made it easier for the studio to settle on Ben even though Josh may have been turning in a great performance)

    • duh says

      agree that is sounds like Charlie, but is Janet Sheen a celebrity with a demanding reputation? never heard of her.

      • VikingKitty says

        The blind didn’t say the mother is a celebrity with a demanding reputation. It said she “can be an incredibly demanding woman.”

        The part that seems to make it not-Sheen is reference to the actor’s “disastrous” childhood.

        Brolin’s childhood wasn’t terribly disastrous either, was it?

  38. VexTheVixen says

    The Actor: Josh Brolin – known for drunken fights over the years – didn’t even know he had grown kids from a previous marriage until I looked it up.

    The Actress: Diane Lane – she called the cops when they were married when he beat her up. She is a beautiful woman but haven’t seen any reports of her dating again since they split last February.

    Dad: James Brolin – Never have heard of any drinking problems in his past although he associated with quite a few folks that had issues (Robert Young, Ryan O’Neal), but have heard he is very shy so a little “liquid courage” wouldn’t surprise me. Married Josh’s mom a few days after they met although they were married for a number of years. Sadly, she died in a car accident after they divorced and after Josh was grown.

    Mom: Barbra Streisand (step-mom) – she is “vocal” in a number of ways – musically and politically, and quite a demanding director per rumors.

    Franchise: Josh was up for the Batman role before it went to Ben Affleck.

  39. Ivee says

    Josh Brolin

    I could say Charlie Sheen, and his latest fiasco, but I’m going with Josh Brolin, and his beautiful ex Diane Lane. I saw his dad, James and his “very vocal” step mom, Barbara Streisand are having marital troubles. Josh was seen in a video yesterday saying he was “never going to drink again”, after this past weekends brawl and fender bender at a drive-thru. Sad. He is a very talented actor. Most likely missed out on a part in either the latest X-Men movie or Thor.

  59. AliBear says

    No, I think this is Josh Brolin, with the ex being Diane Lane and the famous parents being John Brolin & Barbra Streisand. He’s been in the news a lot this past week for getting wasted and fighting with bouncers, cab drivers, etc.

  60. EastCoaster says

    Sounds exactly like Charlie & Denise. Except for the fact that the Celebrity Parents of the actor in question aren’t BOTH celebrities; we recognize Martin Sheen, of course, but not his wife Janet Sheen.

    • EastCoaster says

      The blind perhaps could also be about Josh Brolin & recent ex Diane Lane. He just got into another bar fight and publicly proclaimed his drinking days are behind him. His celebrity parents are James Brolin & step-mother Barbra Streisand (known to be a demanding lady!). Josh & Diane didn’t have any children but he has a few from a previous marriage.
