How Kristen Bell Dealt With Russell Brand


Back when Kristen Bell was filming one of the greatest movies of all time, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Russell Brand was single. Of course this meant that Russell Brand had to try and make a move on Kristen. He did proposition her, but Kristen says, "I made it really clear from the beginning that I would sock him in the balls if he tried ­anything,’ she says. ‘So he was intimidated, truth be told."

Apparently that was good enough and he never tried anything. In her interview with The Daily Mail, she also talks about the first time she met Russell and some of her impressions of him.

"There’s a secret Russell that he doesn’t show many people — one that’s really kind and considerate. True, he did say he found me repulsive and grotesque, but he realised saying stuff like that just got my funny bone. He’s a really sweet boy underneath that wig."

Interesting. You think it is a wig?

I think Russell Brand is super unattractive and skeevy. He actually looks like a serial killer. I have no idea how he got women to sleep with him, and the fact that he attempts to belittle the women who reject him just makes him more disgusting in my book.

Jenny said...

LMAO

I think the wig quote is just a dig at Brand, and it's a great one.

Kristen Bell is quickly becoming one of my favorites--smart, sassy, talented, and managing her career and public image very well.

If it were me, I'd sock him in the balls just for good measure.

KLM said...

Just a dig. But I agree with the other posters - he reminds me of a weasel. He is so unattractive.

MISCH said...

Yes, he has no appeal. It's a mystery to me...

zing!

Kristen Bell just jumped 10 points in my book. Not that I tabulate these points, keep track of them or even know the value of these points, but still. Kudos. Too bad she's with Dax Shepard.

He always looks like he need a shower.

As for Dax, surely you have heard the rumors Karmen?

Not a wig, but his hair is FULL OF SECRETS!

@ sunnyside

What rumors? I get SO MAD at myself when gossip-y items seem to slip by me. I pride myself with spending hours on end perusing many gossip sites so I can be all knowing, so when something is referenced and I don't know about it I view it as an EPIC FAIL on my part. ugh.

(i REALLY wish i was being sarcastic- i'm not. Sad, sad little life I have here)

delilah said...

isnt the rumor that he has a huge personality?

*wink-wink*

sunnyside1213 said...

@ Tina...during his romance with Kate Hudson, he was rumored to be, shall we say, ginormous.

BigMama said...

Russell brand just reminds me of that kid in elementary school who ate paste and looked like he would start picking his nose any second.

RocketQueen said...

I gotta say, when I see Brand in pictures, it doesn't do much for me. But I find myself unexplicably attracted to him when I watch him act. He really IS rather good, funny and clever. He was great in both Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him To The Greek. Really good.

@sunnyside1213 - If he's ginormous, then Geoffrey Arend must be hung like the Hubble Telescope.

I have been told by two women of average weight and height ( short and squaty by hollywood standards) who met Russell Brand that he was the kindest, most complementary, and one of the most charasmatic men they ever met. They met him on separate occassions and at times there was not press or cameras to force him to be nice. One met him at the gym and the other in a bookstore,when he was shopping. My friend X said after talking to him for over an hour, she gets it...she knows how he gets the girls. Probably the charm like Bill Clinton had. I met Clinton at a campaign rally, and he really does make you feel like the most beautiful woman in the room.

sunnyside1213 said...

Geoffrey Arend??? Why him Nightmare Child?

Pookie said...

don't give a crap about RB...but kirsten looks fab there! love the dress!

RenoBlondee said...

@RocketQueen
I feel exactly the same way about RB. In pix he always looks like a crazy person, but in his movies I find him really really attractive.
I'm about the only one here I guess that actually likes Katy and hope they have a long and happy marriage. I sure hope he's not Ted's latest blind about the newly married man already cheating!

MAC said...

I agree with Rocket Queen too. I used to see him with different women and get grossed out. Then I saw Get Him To The Greek and found him charming and fascinating....

timebob said...

I saw him do stand up live in a small club summer 08 in NYC this was before the MTV awards and he was testing material for the show.

I wouldn't say he was sexy but he had an aura about him. He did go on and on about lusting after Mila Kunis and detesting Mac Kulkin being around so much on set for Sarah Marshall.

I love you, K.Bell.
