Russell Brand: I’m a predator
Russell Brand calls himself a “predator” but claims that he ultimately wants to settle down with one woman.
The 38-year-old British comedian is a well-known ladies’ man.
Since his divorce from singer Katy Perry finalised last year Russell has been linked to Spice Girl Geri Halliwell, Australian presenter Kate Peck and many others.
He is now rumoured to be seeing hotel heiress Alessandra Balazs and apparently the couple have been dating for a few months.
Russell loves women, but he does see himself with just one partner in the future.
“I like living a sort of tribal life, with five or six people,” he revealed on Richard Herring’s Leicester Square Theatre podcast.
“I found living maritally... 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.
“When I am scanning the horizon, ruthlessly, like the predator I am, part of it is I want to find someone who I can be with.”
Russell and Mila Kunis co-starred in 2008 romantic comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall and the star admits he had a crush on her while filming.
He was dismayed to learn she was dating Macaulay Culkin at the time.
“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’,” Russell recalled.
“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!
“He’d got longer. Like a veal calf, like he’d been grown in a crate. All pale and scared of himself, like a shaved horse.
“There was a horror about him! Macaulay Culkin! The little lad out of Home Alone! She’s f**king him!”
