Note to celebs: James Brolin doesn’t need to see your underpants.
The actor and husband of Barbra Streisand spoke to Parade.com about how celebrity has changed since he entered the industry.
“I think we've got so much communication today, we've seen the underbelly of everything,” he said. “We've seen everybody's underpants.”
Another downside of the industry that Brolin and his superstar wife have seen much of is the ever present paparazzi while living in Malibu, he said.
"If we go into town or the obvious spots, they're there,” Brolin said. “And if we don't look in the rearview mirror, they'll tail us. They're like rats. So we'll drive in the other direction. We go out where nobody goes.”
The pair seems to still be going strong, and he chalks a solid marriage up to “kindness and honesty with grace.”
Brolin said he’s also a firm believer in having an occasional “tune up” to keep the love going.
“Find the greatest mediator, a shrink, the guy from your church, whatever,” he said. “And every once in a while sit there and have a difficult conversation about all the unsaid things. And by the end of it you're going to be so close it's unreal.”
