As for the future, Brooklyn has just one big dream. “At some point I want to open up my own restaurant,” he says. “I want to bring an English pub out to LA. Definitely not this year, but that’s my dream. Just open up a pub.”
And when asked how he resists the urge to just placate the critics by giving up on a career of his own and instead spending his life relaxing on a beach somewhere, Brooklyn says: “I think to keep busy is one of the most important things. It just keeps your head working.
“If I’m not doing anything, if I don’t have any work stuff, then I’m either in the gym or taking my dogs on a walk,” he adds. “I think keeping busy is very, very important.”
As for the haters?
“They can say whatever they want to say,” Brooklyn says with a smile. “People have their own opinions and that’s fine, but it doesn’t really bother me. I’m going to just keep working and being happy.”
Which, to be fair, is probably a mantra that all of us should live by.
