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

Sagittarius:

Beware of spending beyond your means. Sticking to a budget will help you survive the festive season relatively unscathed. It will be easier than you think to let your grip on the purse strings slip especially as the big day draws near. Let Christmas be about loving, sharing and giving. Spend quality time preparing food, making decorations and playing games together. If you haven't sent all your cards or round robin emails give some thought about what you will be sharing with others this year.More
