Being the wife of a renowned superstar (and movie villain) is quite an interesting aspect of Kathryn Boyd’s life––headlining all sorts of media. For Boyd, however, it isn’t so much so as she’s only the wife of The Cohen Brothers’ Josh Brolin, but she’s also on everyone’s radar for being the daughter-in-law of not one, but two of mainstream media’s biggest names in Barbara Streisand and James Brolin.
Given the illustrious names of her in-laws, it may be a little easier for people to overlook her background. However, she’s just as strong-willed as the people around her for more reasons than you think. Here’s everything you need to know about Kathryn Boyd!
Kathryn Boyd, born on the 12th of October, 1987, in Atlanta, Georgia, is an American actress, model, a prominent icon in production, and well-known to be Josh Brolin’s wife. In 2005, she graduated at The Lovett School and eventually obtained her BA in Magazine Journalism from the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication of the University of Georgia alongside her photojournalism certificate program. In 2008, she went to Italy to study photography in Santa Reparata International School of Art in Florence.
Career and Net Worth:
Kathryn began her illustrious career as an assistant for film directors and producers. In 2010, she served her duty as an assistant of the production unit for Fox’s TV series, Past Life.
Things looked up in 2014, though, as Boyd signed a contract with LA Models and soon began her modelling career. That same year, she joined the Screen Actors Guild–American Federation of Television and Radio Artists as a commercial theatrical actor.
Now that she’s well on her way to becoming her own actress, she first became a part of short film Bad Company. After that, she was given role after role including Sophia in 2015’s Rideshare––also serving as a co-producer of the short. She also became a part of 2015’s Ride to Vegas as Kat.
Now, Kathryn enjoys being an entrepreneur of her own––founding the denim brand Midheaven Denim that gives tall women a chance a wide array of bottoms to choose from.
As of 2021, Boyd stands at a net worth of around $8 million––garnered from her career and her own line of denim wear.
Previously the assistant of Josh Brolin, she now takes a bigger part in his life as his wife. In 2011, their love story began when she was employed at Brolin Productions.
Before that, however, Josh was married to Dayne Lane. The two were divorced for irreconcilable differences and soon, Josh began dating Kathryn Boyd. There was even a controversy surrounding the two that started because of Lane––saying that the two were dating even before the divorce.
The two were happy, though, and got engaged in 2015 and got married in 2016 in Cashiers, North Carolina. Now, they enjoy their lives as a family together with their child, Westlyn Reign Brolin, who was born in 2018.
Kathryn Boyd is an American actress, production assistant, business owner, and now-wife of Josh Brolin. Her career in production has given her a name in the business, and soon a name of her own in modelling and owning a denim wear business. Now, she enjoys her life as the wife of Avengers’ Thanos, Josh Brolin, and a wonderful daughter named Westlyn Reign.
