Russell Brand has apparently admitted that he felt "bruised" after the unsuccessful Arthur remake.

The British funnyman starred in the 2011 version as a drunk playboy set to inherit a fortune, who was originally played by Dudley Moore in the 1981 comedy, but the film failed to light the box office on fire.

"I didn't know a lot about script construction. I know more now. I was just embracing things enthusiastically," he is quoted as saying in The Sun.

"I thought I could do anything. I felt a little bruised. I felt I'd made a mistake," added the 37-year-old.

Dame Helen Mirren, Jennifer Garner and Greta Gerwig also starred in Arthur, which was directed by Jason Winer.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

Impulsive purchases will put you in a difficult financial position. It's important to exercise economic restraint. If you strongly desire to buy something, wait an entire day. The urge to splash out will probably diminish, saving you a significant sum. Money from an inheritance, dividend or royalty payment should be conserved. Having a nest egg will give you a greater measure of freedom. Independence is the best gift you can give yourself. Materialism won't bring you the happiness you seek.More
