Russell Brand's generous gesture
Russell Brand has moved a homeless man to tears by giving him £400, according to reports.
The comic, 36, was in Los Angeles with his new girlfriend, Hungarian model Nikolett Barabas, when he handed out the cash, the Daily Star said.
A friend of the star, who split from singer wife Katy Perry, 27, last year after 14 months of marriage, was quoted as saying: "He met a homeless guy on Hollywood Boulevard, just around the corner from the home he shared with Katy Perry.
"Russ was with his new girlfriend and they struck up a conversation with the guy.
"After chatting for a few minutes he decided he wanted to get a roof over his head for a few nights. So he went over the road and withdrew 600 dollars for him. When Russell handed over the wad of cash, the fella had tears in his eyes."
Earlier this month, the Get Him To The Greek star was arrested for criminal damage after a photographer accused the comedian of grabbing his iPhone and throwing it through a window.
