Josh Brolin and Diane Lane’s Relationship
For over a decade, Diane Lane and Josh Brolin were one of the most beloved couples in Hollywood. They met on December 13, 2001, at the premiere for A Beautiful Mind, where they were introduced to each other by the iconic singer Barbara Streisand, who happened to be Brolin’s mother. The pair hit it off and began dating.
After many blissful months of dating, the lovebirds announced their engagement in July 2013. The following year, on August 15, they headed to the altar to pledge love and loyalty to each other for the rest of their days. The beautiful ceremony held at Brolin’s ranch in California.
Their marriage faced its fair share of ups and downs but Diane and Brolin seemed determined to make things work, which is why the news of their separation took most people by surprise when it was announced in February 2013. Although Diane Lane was the one who filed for divorce on the grounds of irreconcilable differences, both parties claimed that the decision to end the marriage was mutual and amicable.
This Diane Lane relationship came to a screeching end on December 2, 2013, when the divorce was finalized. The couple had no children together, so the affair was pretty uncomplicated. However, it was the second divorce for the pair.
The actress used to be married to Christopher Lambert, with whom she had a daughter named Eleanor. The marriage lasted from October 1988 to March 1994. That same year, Brolin also ended his marriage to the actress Alice Adair, with whom he has two children.
Why Did Their Marriage Collapse?
Barely four months into their marriage, Diane Lane called the police, who then arrested Josh Brolin for domestic battery after she claimed he hit her in the middle of an altercation they were having. Although Diane insisted she did not want to press charges, Brolin was still arrested but was subsequently released.
For a long time, the couple declined to talk about what really happened that led to the arrest. However, Brolin recently opened up to say that there really is no explaining the situation because the only person who can explain it is Diane.
The actor also stated that he blames the incident on his chaotic behavior and his inability to control it back then, but all that has changed now. He took some of the blame for the collapse of his marriage to Diane, stating that his hero complex built up a lot of resentment in the relationship but he wasn’t mature or wise enough to understand it at the time.
The Avengers: Infinity War actor has since moved on from the Diane Lane’s relationship. He is now married to Kathryn Boyd, his former assistant and they are expecting a daughter together.
Is Diane Lane In a Relationship Now?
When it comes to dating, Diane Lane’s relationship history is quite robust. Being a beautiful and talented woman, she has had a steady string of suitors to choose from. Before her failed marriage to Josh Brolin, she dated Roger Wilson, John Taylor, Christopher Atkins, Timothy Hutton, Emilio Estevez, Jon Bon Jovi, Christopher Lambert, Richie Sambora, and Danny Cannon.
Since her divorce from Brolin, Diane Lane’s love life has been more under the radar. The Academy Award-nominated actress is not in a relationship at the moment. She is single and seems to be loving every moment of it.
