Actor Josh Brolin has been married and divorced three times: Complete story here!  

Known for his roles in Milk, The Goonies, Avengers: Infinity War, and Dune, Josh Brolin is an Academy-nominated actor. The actor's success is often associated with his bonafide Hollywood family; Josh's father is actor James Brolin, and his mother is wildlife activist Jane Cameron. The actor also has Barbra Streisand as his stepmom.  

Born on February 12, 1968, in Santa Monica, California, Brolin started acting during his middle teens. But despite boasting a privileged background, Josh's career trajectory didn't transpire all that different from that of an outsider. Brolin made his big debut in The Goonies, in 1985, and spent 22 years, mostly unemployed.

Of course, Brolin earned his overdue fame eventually and joined the trove of A-listers. The actor made it big with the Academy Award-winning film No Country For Old Men, in 2006. By then, Brolin had already navigated a failed marriage and welcomed two kids.

Josh met his first wife, actress Alice Adair, during the filming of Private Eye, a tv series he signed to board after turning down a role in Back to The Beach. Perhaps the whole purport of the tv series was Brolin's chance encounter with Alice, as the series failed miserably after one season, but Josh found a wife.  

Josh and Adair tied the knot in 1988 and spawned a brood of two within the next six years. The couple parted ways in 1994 and continued to live as a family for the best interest of their then-young children. Following his divorce from Adair, who remained his boarding partner for a few years, Josh started dating actress Minne Driver.

The Goonies actor and Minnie were engaged for six months before breaking off their ties amicably. Brolin's second nuptial with actress Diane Lane was a low-key profile affair like his previous relationships, but it had its moments of turbulence. The duo got married on August 15, 2004, and after a few months, the couple sparked a scandal.

The Avengers actor was arrested on charges of domestic abuse in December 2004. Brolin was later released after Lane declined to press charges. The couple's rep that the duo had an altercation, which transpired into a lowest-end misdemeanor on Josh's part. 

The ever-reticent actor later recalled the incident with much disdain. Brolin explained that he tried his best to be a good husband and a good father figure to Lane's daughter from her previous relationship, but felt exhausted at moments. "I feel bad that I didn’t have the presence of mind to understand that early on," said the actor. The duo finalized their divorce in 2013.
