Russell Brand says Jennifer Garner kissed him so hard during movie scenes her husband Ben Affleck should be “p**sed off”.
The British comedian stars as the title character in Arthur, originally made famous by Dudley Moore in 1981. Arthur is a drunken playboy who risks losing his inheritance when he falls in love with a woman his family don’t approve of.
The remake also stars Dame Helen Mirren and Jennifer, both of who had kissing scenes with Russell. He thoroughly enjoyed his time with Jennifer, likening her mouth to a sweet cake he loves feasting on.
“She’s like a fairy princess. There’s a brand of red-velvet cake; her mouth is made of that,” he told NextMovie.com. “She smashes you in the mouth [in] those kissing scenes. If I was Ben Affleck, man, I'd be p**sed off.”
The 35-year-old also had a fun time shooting risqué scenes with Helen. The pair are firm friends having also shot upcoming film The Tempest together, and Russell loves the way she gives as good as she gets. He finds it impossible to shock her, as she is always one step ahead of him.
“She’s so exquisitely eloquent and delightful.
