It’s Britney, Bitch!

Russell Brand and Britney Spears

Without a doubt, one of the high points of 2008 was watching Russell Brand host the 25th Annual MTV Video Music Awards. If you weren’t laughing, you weren’t paying attention (or you are very easily offended). Prior to the big night Russell shot a series of promos with comeback queen Britney Spears. The celebs made an excellent pair, and we loved every minute of it!! (Note: please mind the subtitles in the following video.)

'Get Him to the Greek' and 'Arthur'

If you were a recovering alcoholic, wouldn’t you stick to scripts that didn’t require you to act blasted on a daily basis? Mr. Brand recently spoke to Elle about his party-hardy character in Arthur, saying ,”It was very strange. I kept little plastic bottle of booze around the set that I’d smell before each take. That really helped me because I’ve got huge emotional resources to call upon.” It’s quite impressive that Brand can go wild and crazy in films such as Arthur and Get Him to the Greek, without being tempted to undo all of his hard work.

Tell us: Will you be hitting the theatre on April 8 to see Helen and Russell work their magic?
