Report: Josh Brolin Checks Into Rehab
Actor Josh Brolin has reportedly checked into a rehab facility in Northern California to address his addiction issues. An insider told Us Weekly magazine, "He realized he needed help and is committed to his sobriety."
Earlier this month, the "Gangster Squad" star was involved in a brawl with a bouncer and was also video taped yelling at a cab driver after allegedly rear-ending his vehicle at a fast food drive-through window.
Back in January, Brolin was arrested for public intoxication. He paid $250 bail and did not have to appear in court, as he was not given a citation for the arrest.
TMZ.com caught up with the actor on Nov. 3 and asked him if he had given up alcohol as a result of his behavior, to which he responded, "Absolutely. It won't be happening again. That's it. Completely done."
It's been a tough year for the star. Brolin and his wife of eight years, Diane Lane, quietly parted ways in late 2012 and a rep for the couple announced in February that they were splitting up.
Meanwhile, Brolin stars in the upcoming horror remake "Oldboy" about a man who is kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement. After his inexplicable release, he attempts to hunt down the individual who orchestrated his bizarre and torturous punishment.
