As said earlier, Josh Brolin is one of the most famous actors around, and his mother, Jane Cameron Agee, passed away when he and his younger brother, Jess Brolin was pretty young. Keep reading to find out what he has said about losing this important family member.
When Josh Brolin turned 27 years old, his mom died in a car accident. It’s a tragedy to lose a parent at any age, but especially at such a young one.
Jane Cameron Agee’s son, Josh Brolin said he was “liberated” by his mom’s passing. Brolin told Men’s Journal that he has a phone message from the day that she passed away. According to Radar Online, he said, “She called me and got my answering machine with a trick message on it that was like, ‘Oh, hey, what’s up? I can’t hear you very well. Who is this?’ And she started laughing hysterically. That’s the last I heard from my mom. Four hours later, she was dead.”
The actor continued that he was “lost and just spinning” over the next two years, as he had a really tough time dealing with the loss. He also said he felt his mom loved him “conditionally,” as she was really proud of him when he was in jail once for beating people up. He would try to win her support time and time again, and so he stayed in a really bad place.
Jane Cameron Agee’s son, Brolin explained, “Her love for me was hugely, hugely conditional, so it all comes down to that moment and me spending all my days trying to re-create that moment, putting myself in positions of self-destruction. I succumbed to that. And the truth is, although my mom being around was fantastic, after her death, I didn’t have to live up to that anymore. I was liberated. I matured.”
Brolin said in an interview with The Guardian that after his mom passed away, he had a change of heart about his wild lifestyle. He stopped partying so much and hurting himself with his behavior. He said, “My mum dying when I was in my 20s. All the impact that had on me that I hadn’t moved past; I was always such a momma’s boy. But I realized that I was on a destructive path. I knew that I had to change and mature. It was like I stepped back and saw the hamster wheel.”
