Josh Brolin: I've Never Cheated on Diane Lane

Despite rumors to the contrary, the actor says he's always been faithful to his wife

Diane Lane may have starred in Unfaithful, but life does not imitate art when it comes to her marriage to Josh Brolin. The actor, who wed Lane in 2004, insists that despite rumors the he has a wandering eye, he's never cheated on Lane.

"I don't f*** around on my wife," Brolin says in the October issue of Playboy. "I mean, check her out, man. My relationship with my wife is fantastic."

Rumors of Brolin's infidelity spurred from a picture of him kissing actress Marley Shelton, his costar in Grindhouse, which he swears was completely innocent.

"Marley is my wife's and my great friend," the actor explains. "I'm an extremely affectionate guy...Marley and I were out together, turned around and saw there were cameras. That's it."

He added: "Next time I see that camera guy, I'm going to give some guy a good smack on the lips and then hopefully it will be 'Josh Brolin is gay' instead of that I'm f***ing around on my wife."

Brolin and Lane had their share of time in the tabloid headlines in 2004, as well, after Brolin was arrested for spousal battery -- an incident which Lane eventually called "a misunderstanding."

"I feel rage about that," Brolin admits of the arrest. "I feel I've gotten to a point where I can't explain it, defend it or compensate for it. I can't say, 'No, I'm actually a really good guy and that didn't happen.' Everybody knows what happened because it's all out there."

"I talked big, she said 'F*** you' and called the cops, and somebody had to go to jail," he explains of their altercation. "This will be there for the rest of my life. That f***ing sucks. It's been so disruptive to our lives. It's also post-O.J., and that horrifies us both. It kills me, man. It kills me."
