Russell Brand has been talking about working with Mila Kunis on the 2008 comedy, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and he revealed that he tired to “chat up” the actress whilst on set.
The only problem for Brand was that Kunis was, at the time, in a long-term relationship with Macaulay Culkin, who starred in Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost In New York, and had no interest in the comedian.
Brand told the Daily Mirror, “She’s so gorgeous, just so gorgeous and I was chatting her up and got the conversation around to have you got a boyfriend. And then you know that feeling of how long do I have to entertain a conversation? The I go away and she keeps talking about her boyfriend Mac, this is when I was on Forgetting Sarah Marshall.”
Brand continued, “Eventually she said he’s coming tomorrow and there was some sort of fanfare, she was so excited. Then when he came it wasn’t Mac – it was Macaulay Culkin. He’d got longer and looked pale and scared of himself, like a shaved horse.”
Brand was concerned about their relationship though, stating, “There was a horror about him, and I though, “You can f*** him – that’s the lad from Home Alone!”
The English actor has had a rather tumultuous week. First it was revealed that he split up from his ex-wife, pop singer, Katy Perry, via text message after just 14 months of marriage.
Then he had a horrible exchange on the MSNBC’s Morning Joe programme where he ended up hurling abuse at the show’s hosts Mika Brzezinski, Katy Kay, and Brian Shactman because of the way they were treating him.
This saw them making jokes at his expense and constantly refereeing to him in third person even though he was only two feet away from the trio.
