Josh Brolin says visiting his father, James Brolin, and his stepmother Barbra Streisand during the pandemic lock down was “irresponsible.”
The “Avengers: Endgame” star posted a video over the weekend on his verified Instagram addressing having broken social distancing rules in California with the visit.
He faced backlash after a now deleted post showing him, his wife Kathryn and their toddler daughter, Westlyn, poolside in Malibu with the elder Brolin and Streisand.
The younger Brolin posted an apology video with a caption that read “Thanks for the reset. #respectsocialdistancing.”
“My father lives next door to us and we had a plan to go see them and not be near them and that plan was broken and that’s our responsibility,” Brolin said in his video. “We were going to pick something up and show [Westlyn] the pool because we don’t have a pool and yeah, I think it was irresponsible.”
The “Deadpool” actor went on to say “It’s hard to be honest sometimes.”
“It’s hard to be honest and say, ‘Maybe I screwed up,’” Brolin said. “I knew that was in the air. Not because of the responses, but the responses brought me back to my own truth.”
