Diane Lane Divorcing Josh Brolin & We Think She’s Better Off

Love & Learn 6

Diane LaneWhen Hollywood stars divorce, there's usually one of two reactions: "Not surprising." (Hello Katy Perry and Russell Brand.) Or "I can't believe it!" (Hello Rhea Perlman and Danny DeVito.) But with the latest Hollywood divorce, I'd have to say my reaction was, "Finally!" Yeah, every time I'd see these two together, I'd think, They're still together?! Sadly, I can't say this one comes as much of a shock. Who is it? Reportedly Josh Brolin and Diane Lane are getting divorced after eight years of marriage. So why am I not shocked?

Mostly because Josh has been in a lot of trouble over the years. Josh was arrested back in 2004 on a domestic violence charge. At the time, Diane refused to press charges and their rep called it all a "misunderstanding." Hmm. Quite a misunderstanding.

Four years later, Josh was arrested and this time put in jail for a drunken brawl involving a bunch of W film crew members in a bar in Louisiana.

And this past New Year's Day, Josh was arrested for public intoxication in Los Angeles. He was put in a drunk tank for several hours. But Josh doesn't feel like anything was his fault. He told Good Morning America:

I’m the one guy who’s out there and they go, 'Hey that’s Josh. Let’s grab him.'

Mmm, okay, Josh. Anyway, I always felt like Diane was way too classy for this guy. Guess she finally figured that out as well. The couple don't have any children, which at least will make the split somewhat less complicated. All divorces are difficult -- but I think Diane won't regret this one. The woman has the patience of a saint, but patience has a tendency to run out after awhile.

What do you think about this divorce?
