Brolin Trades Horse Gambling For Wall Street
Hollywood actor Josh Brolin enjoys trading on the stock market - because it stops him gambling on horse races.
The W star admits the profits he's garnered from his Wall Street decisions have allowed him the freedom to pick and choose which films he makes. And stock market trading gives him the same buzz as betting - without the odds stacked against him.
Brolin says, "I like to do it. It enables me to offset movies that I might otherwise have had to do for the money. Plus it stopped me gambling. I used to go to Vegas and play the horses, and then I realized how ridiculous that was. There is no winning in gambling, but there is on the stock market. Maybe it's not trillions of dollars. Maybe it's just five bucks for lunch. Who cares, it's all good." (MT/WNBGU/CL)
