Brand failed to woo Mila Kunis

Russell Brand has told how he tried to chat up Mila Kunis - but failed.

The Black Swan actress spurned his advances when they starred together in 2008 film Forgetting Sarah Marshall because she was dating Macaulay Culkin at the time, The Sun reported.

Russell said: "She's gorgeous. She's so gorgeous.

"I was chatting her up, and got the conversation around to, 'Have you got a boyfriend?' and she went, 'Yeah'.

"So you know that feeling of 'How long do I have to maintain an interest in this conversation now?' It's 12 seconds. She's talking about her boyfriend 'Mac'. Eventually, she said 'My boyfriend's coming tomorrow.' She was excited - and when he came it was not 'Mac', it was Macaulay Culkin!"

Russell's ex-wife Katy Perry recently revealed that the comic told her he was going to divorce her in a text message.

Speaking on fellow comic Richard Herring's Leicester Square Theatre podcast, Russell said of marriage: "Some things are incredibly beautiful about it, I love it - but it was such an extraordinary transition. I don't know that I was especially ready. But ultimately I do want that."

Mila, now in a relationship with Ashton Kutcher, split from Home Alone star Macaulay in 2011 after nine years together.
