Josh Brolin Puts Foot In Mouth

I have no idea what Josh Brolin's shoe size is, but for his sake I hope it's small. On Monday night, at the New York Film Critics Awards dinner, Brolin insulted both Russell ("Quite an actor Sean Penn, quite an actor. Amazing. Not an a---hole. Like Russell Crowe. Like Russell Crowe.") and New York Times theater critic Ben Brantley ("Honestly, I hate that motherfucker. ... And I don't think he's a good writer").

Josh Brolin as ...

Brolin later mentioned that he didn't mean what he'd said about Russell, saying

although he didn't retract anything he'd said about Brantley. And Brolin did mention that he'd been drinking before making his appearance.

Honestly, Josh, is that any way to accept an award? By bashing your fellow actors? To my way of thinking, that makes you the a**hole!

It's a pity when less-talented actors have to use "filthy language" to say something negative about an outstanding actor. I think Russell is one of the greatest actors of all time. Personally, I like Russell because he's a real family man and that is very sexy. He built a chapel on their ranch for their wedding, their son's baptismals. It's used for prayers, meditation and connecting with God and your soul. He is loyal to his family and friends and he's kind to strangers. What more do you want?
I think Russell will be remembered as a great actor long after Josh Brolin fades into the woodwork.
