Russell Brand who was once a self-proclaimed sex addict seems to be at it again after the finalization of his divorce to pop singer Katy Perry. The comedian reportedly held up filming for over two hours on his latest film What About Dick? when a wardrobe assistant refused to flash him.
Brand, who was very insistent on the woman flashing him her breasts delayed the schedule of shooting in Los Angeles just so he could see some skin. Eventually, the assistant gave in to Brand’s demands for the sake of the scheduling.
Of course this isn’t the first time Russell Brand and sex have been synonymous. Brand, 37, had a brief stint in sex rehab. At the time he described hitting rock bottom:
“As my sexual appetite grew, I found myself engaged in an increasingly desperate quest to satisfy it. I became so open to suggestion that when someone asked me if I’d like to go to an orgy, I didn’t think twice before accepting the invitation.”
However, as serious as his dalliances have been in the past, according to a source who was on set when the incident happened along with comedians Billy, and Eddie Izzard, “it was just a bit of fun.” The source added: “Billy got annoyed when he found out and gave Russell a stern ticking off.”
The incident occurred in Brand’s dressing room, the source recalled the “bit of fun” incident after it happened:
“Russell tried to persuade a wardrobe assistant to show him her breasts but she was having none of it — at first. The source continued, “But when it started to look like they weren’t going to get any work done she gave in and flashed him. Russell is a charming scoundrel and everybody let him get away with murder on set — except Billy.”
Although Russell Brand seems to have a bit of an eye for breasts, he’s currently dating Isabella Brewster, sister of actress Jordana Brewster. As for his film, What About Dick? it will be released next year.
