JOSH BROLIN SPEAKS OUT ON DIANE LANE DOMESTIC VIOLENCE: Josh Brolin is speaking out about an ugly incident in his past. In 2004, months after the pair married, the Oscar-nominated Diane Lane called the police and accused Brolin of hitting her. He was charged with spousal battery and then released on $20,000 bail. "There was a misunderstanding at their home," a publicist representing the couple said in a statement. "Diane called the police. Josh ended up being arrested for the lowest-end misdemeanor charge of domestic battery. Diane did not want to press charges and asked them not to arrest him, but in cases involving the possibility of any physical contact, the police have to arrest first, ask questions later. They are home together and are embarrassed the matter went this far." In an extensive interview with The New York Times, Brolin said there was "no explaining" the incident. "God, I’ve never been so careful with my words. Ever. Maybe in all 50 years. And there’s no reason for me to be other than there’s no explaining it," he told the paper. "Do you know what I mean? The only person who can explain that would be Diane, and she’s chosen not to, so I’m O.K. with that. I was more reactive, I was more, ‘People need to know the truth.’ Whatever I say is going to sound like compensation for a perpetrator," he continued. "I’ve gotten to a place where all that matters is that I have control over my behavior, and at that time, it was a little more chaotic."
