Josh Brolin's brother seen rummaging through trash can

His brother is a Hollywood hunk and his actor dad married to one of the most famous women in show business — but Jess Brolin is troubled and roots around in trash cans.

“It’s a heartbreaking situation,’’ a source said of the 350-pound Brolin, the younger brother of “No Country for Old Men’’ actor Josh Brolin, son of James Brolin and stepson of Barbra Streisand.

“He will sometimes be sleeping in a field behind shops, basically ­wherever he can bed down,” the source added to the Mirror newspaper of Britain.

Jess, 41, has been living in picturesque Ojai, Calif., since May 2011, when his trust fund ran out and he was evicted from his $800-a-month apartment in Santa Monica, the Mirror said.

The paper said he’s now homeless, but Josh’s spokeswoman described that report as “erroneous.’’ She insisted,“he’s gainfully employed and supports himself.’’

    She acknowledged he had financial problems three years ago but said they’re behind him. She added if he finds himself “in need of support or any assistance’’ his family and friends will be there for him.

    Still, he was recently spotted waddling through town wearing denim shorts and a tent-like LA Dodgers T-shirt. At one point, he was seen sticking his arm into a trash can.
