‘Creative’ Doesn’t Even Begin to Describe It.
You know what’s thoroughly overrated? Receiving a marriage proposal during a candlelit dinner at a swanky restaurant. Sure it’s romantic, but is it imaginative? Heck no! Russell pulled off one of the most original proposals ever when he asked singer Katy Perry to be his wife. The two were on the back of an elephant, in India, at midnight!
A Spoon Full of Sugar Helps the Medicine Go Down.
Global warming is no joke, but Russell was able to keep our spirits up when discussing climate change alongside Ricky Gervais at the Live Earth event in 2007…
Besides being a comedian, actor, singer and one amazing awards show presenter, Russell has three uproarious books under his belt. The star’s most recognizable best-seller is My Booky Wook: A Memoir of Sex, Drugs, and Stand-Up. The first chapter details his stint at a sex addiction treatment center in Philadelphia. Upon arrival, Russell’s copy of the Guardian was taken away because the counselors did not appreciate the photo of the Venus de Milo splashed across the front page of the Culture section. They did however, allow him to keep the Sun, which featured a shot of sexy model Keeley Hazell. Russell hilariously envisioned the counselors thinking:
“Blimey, this devious swine’s got a picture of a concrete bird with no arms—hanging’s too good for him, to the incinerator! Keep that picture of stunner Keeley though.”
Head to Amazon to read the first few pages of My Booky Wook!
