Prior to the post, he put up a pic from 2007, where he looked noticeably thinner. "One hundred and sixty-seven pounds, 2007 #afilmbyoliverstone," Brolin captioned the photo. The actor worked with Oliver Stone on W. (2008) and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (2010).
While on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in January 2015, Brolin revealed that he had gained over 40 pounds for his role in Danny McBride and Jody Hill's comedy, Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter. He even unbuttoned his shirt to show off his belly. "I have to get rid of this weight," he insisted.
