Josh Brolin on Bar-Fight Arrest: I Did Nothing Wrong

Josh Brolin on Bar-Fight Arrest: I Did Nothing Wrong

Originally posted 09/17/2008 12:50PM

The news in July out of Louisiana, where Josh Brolin was playing President George W. Bush for filmmaker Oliver Stone's sure-to-be controversial biopic W, was stunning: Brolin, W costar Jeffrey Wright and five others were arrested in connection with a bar fight.

Now, with the machinery gearing up to promote the movie about the 43rd and current chief executive – W is set to open Oct. 17, in anticipation of the Nov. 4 national election – Brolin, who has yet to explain what happened, continues to shed little light on that night in Shreveport.

"Let me put it this way," a poker-faced Brolin, 40, tells the fashion magazine W for its October issue, on sale next Tuesday. "It was nice to be in jail knowing that I hadn't done anything wrong. And it was maddening to be in jail knowing that I hadn't done anything wrong."

On the heels of his arrest, Josh Brolin stepped out for the premiere of Frozen River Tuesday, but avoided reporters and politely declined to pose for photographs.

"Sorry, I'm kind of in a bad predicament right now!" Brolin, 40, told photographers with a smile, after he arrived at the West Hollywood event with his two children minutes before the movie started.

He attended the premiere to support the film's star, Melissa Leo, a longtime friend and a costar in a TV show they did together.

On Saturday, Brolin also was spotted with Sean Penn, Robin Wright Penn and director Oliver Stone at Locanda Portofino in Santa Monica. An observer said Brolin appeared to be in a good mood, dancing a jig outside the restaurant and giving Penn a bear hug. The group also posed for pictures with the restaurant valet men and joked with fellow diners.
