Josh Brolin apologized after being criticized for visiting his father during the lockout and breaking strict social distancing rules amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The Deadpool 2 actor shared a video on Friday explaining why he went to visit dad James Brolin and stepmother Barbra Streisand at their home.
The 52-year-old man brought his wife Kathryn Boyd and their one-year-old daughter Westlyn and posed for Instagram photos by the pool.
“I think it was irresponsible”: Josh Brolin apologized after breaking home stay guidelines to spend time with father James and stepmother Barbra Streisand
“My dad lives next to us and we had a plan to go see them and not be near them and that plan was broken and it is our responsibility,” said Josh. “We were going to pick up something and show Bean the pool and I think it was irresponsible. “
“It’s hard to be honest at times, it’s hard to be honest and say,” Well, maybe I messed up, “” he added.
“The answers brought me back to my own truth. It’s humiliating like hell, because I know that there are people without mask, without gloves, without interest, they think that it is in your head, that you will survive thanks to the immunity which is created because of your own psychic weight.
“But I know that is not the case and we have been very responsible and I apologize. “
Josh later added, “My apologies, and I’m not in favor of doing anything besides taking care of each other and making sure we get through this even if we go too far and we are too protective. We will consider this as a short time for a very long term solution and a long lifespan.
“My father lives next to us and we had a plan to go see them and not be near them and that plan was broken and it is our responsibility,” said the Deadpool 2 star.

In an Instagram post deleted since Josh shared on Friday, family members have been seen gathering around James and Barbra’s pool, keeping a safe distance from each other and wearing face masks.
“There is nothing better than a good meeting with the family when all you can hear is a distant smothering of what were once called words,” joked Josh in the caption.
But spending time together was not the original plan because Barbra, 77, revealed that the family was going to stay outside the house first, holding up a handmade sign for the couple.
On Wednesday, the song sensation posted a photo of Kathryn holding up a poster that said “We [heart] you Gamma & Grampa ‘by standing in front of their house.
“I love the sign that Josh and Kathryn painted yesterday when they came to see us with our grandson Westlyn.”
