Josh Brolin's wife savagely trolls him over the size of his manhood and people are screaming

Often, it's easy to perceive celebrities as some sort of higher life form. We only usually get to see them when they're at their best - perhaps on the red carpet, or in some carefully-edited Instagram snaps - and so, for that reason, we tend to think of them as not-quite-human.

Every now and then, however, we catch a glimpse of them as their natural, unpolished selves, and it quickly becomes apparent that they're just as vulnerable, just as fun, and just as goofy as the rest of us.

A great example of this is actor Ryan Reynolds. He and his wife, Blake Lively, are always playing pranks on one another and being complete trolls on social media. This week, however, the couple were upstaged by Reynolds' Deadpool co-star, Josh Brolin, whose wife delivered the ultimate burn on Instagram.

In a video posted to the picture-sharing platform yesterday, Brolin can be seen strolling around a store while his wife, Kathryn Boyd, observes him. In one hand he has a box of condoms - Magnum XL, naturally - which he seems to be holding as if to let everyone know that, yeah, he's still gettin' some.

Boyd, however, had other plans.

As Brolin checks out some of the other items on offer, his wife slyly says, "Josh, I think those are too big for you" - something he is obviously not happy about hearing.

With an insulted look, he turns to the camera and says in a childish way, "No they're not."

Obviously, the two are just messing around - something that Brolin made obvious when he captioned the video, "I KNOW what I need! ? #wifekeepsmehumble".

And a quick skim through the actor's social media feed proves that he's a bit of a jokester.

Here he is looking sombre in a swim ring:

Here he is having just wet himself:

And here he is being cute as hell with his wife:

It seems that Brolin is very similar to his on-screen enemy-turned-ally, Deadpool, and apparently he and Reynolds get along very well. In fact, in a recent interview, the actor revealed that he had something of a "man crush" on his co-star.

"I told Ryan," Brolin said, "I was like, ‘I don’t know why this is, and I don’t know what this means psychologically, behaviorally, emotionally, but I have kind of a crush on you’."

And Reynolds was surprised by this: "[Brolin] mentioned it many times, which is weird to me, because he’s so tough. I would just never imagine that. Like, he pretends he’s, like, all sort of New Agey sometimes and all this stuff, but deep down inside I just think his heart is made of some, like, jagged chunk of Yosemite granite."

As much as he may fancy Reynolds, though, Brolin is well and truly besotted with Boyd, and the two are expecting a baby later this year. With that in mind, though, we have to ask... Why did he need the condoms?
