Javier Bardem Confirms What We All Suspected About Josh Brolin's On-Set Behavior

Josh Brolin has been a Hollywood fixture ever since he starred in Richard Donner's beloved 1985 adventure film "The Goonies." The last two decades have only seen him expanding his career as he's appeared in some of the most successful movies ever made. Yes, we're obviously referring to his role as Thanos the Mad Titan in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Brolin briefly appeared as the giant purple villain in "Guardians of the Galaxy," as well as the post-credits scene in "Avengers: Age of Ultron," before he unleashed utter chaos in "Avengers: Infinity War" and "Avengers: Endgame."

Although his MCU appearances are some of his most instantly recognizable work, the star has plenty of other incredible roles under his belt, and he has worked with some of the biggest names in the industry. For instance, he's worked with the Coen brothers on three films: "No Country For Old Men," "True Grit," and "Hail, Caesar!"

But what's the actor like to work with? Well, his "No Country For Old Men" co-star, Javier Bardem, recently confirmed what we all suspected about Josh Brolin's on-set behavior.

Javier Bardem says Josh Brolin helped him during a hard time

"No Country For Old Men" sees Vietnam war veteran Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin) accidentally find $2 million in a briefcase, while hitman Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem) is sent to recover the money. Bardem recently spoke to GQ about his career and the characters he's played over the years, and it was then that he opened up about what it's like to work with Brolin.

Bardem couldn't praise his co-star enough, saying, "Josh Brolin – which I adore, admire, respect, and really worship him as a man and an actor and a human being." But Bardem also noted how Brolin "really helped me so much on a personal level in that movie." He went on to confess that he was struggling personally while working on "No Country For Old Men," but Brolin helped him through it. "Because I was going through a hard time, and he really rescued me out of it with his humor and his care and attention and presence," Bardem explained.

Bardem also pointed out that being close with Brolin made it difficult to stay in character as the ruthless hitman, saying, "It was the last thing I would like to do in that moment, kill him, so I had to make a big effort to try to put my faith into killing Llewelyn Moss." So, clearly, Josh Brolin looks out for his co-stars on a personal level, as well as being a dedicated actor.
