Russell Brand’s Sex Ban

Russell BrandRussell Brand banned himself from thinking about sex while filming Rock of Ages.

The 37-year-old actor believed his character Lonny should be "unsexy," so he decided to banish all impure thoughts from him mind although he admitted it wasn't easy.

"Your mind is predetermined to think sexy thoughts. Once you've got survival out of the way then your mind turns to procreation. That's just a natural thing," he said.

However, now that filming has ended, Russell has thrown himself back into dating: "I'm single at the moment, I'm also dating. You know that sort of dating where you can do what you like?"

Russell Brand Enjoyed Kissing Alec Baldwin

Alec Baldwin and Russell Brand in 'Rock of Ages'

Russell Brand's onscreen smooch with Alec Baldwin was "one of the greatest kisses" he's ever had.

The pair locked lips in new movie Rock of Ages and Russell joked he enjoyed their kiss so much that he deliberately made mistakes so they could do multiple takes: "Alec Baldwin has been one of the great kisses of my life. Like, to be honest, in the first few takes I deliberately made it go wrong just so I could kiss him more often. I'd go, 'Oh sorry, I was wearing a baseball cap in the scene. Oh sorry, I think I stumbled, I opened my eyes.' So they did take after take, kiss after kiss, and I thought if I keep kissing that man, eventually I can make him love me."

Russell Brand, ArthurUPDATE: Final numbers prove Sunday estimates were wrong. Get the updated -- and accurate -- box office results below.


Even Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman can’t compete with family-friendly Easter-themed animation. Hop has retained its number one box office position, and Portman’s lowbrow comedy flick suffered a dismal opening weekend.

Hop, which cost around $63 million to make, has already earned a cool $68.2 million from box office revenue ($21.7 million this weekend). Thanks to his new comedy flick, Russell Brand is in the top two positions on the box office list for the weekend. Arthur earned $12.6 million to gain the second top slot. His voice is behind the leading bunny in Hop, and Brand plays the title character in the number 2 flick.

Action flick Hanna just barely got pushed into third, earning $12.3 million in its opening weekend. Soul Surfer scored $11.1 million to lock down a fourth place opening. Insidious is still on the top five list (barely) with $9.7 million. Natalie Portman, James Franco and Danny McBride proved to be a dismal box office combination, earning a combined $9.5 with Your Highness to land in sixth place.

UPDATED: Hanna actually earned second place at the box office with $12.4 million. Arthur slid into third place with its $12.2 million box office take.

Russell Brand Ready to Rock New Film

Russell BrandForgetting Russell Brand just isn’t possible anymore. When the British-born comedian hosted MTV’s VMAs in 2008, he was relatively unknown.

Meanwhile, scathing reviews didn’t keep from raking up a sizable share of the box office pot. M. Night Shyamalan’s take on Nickelodeon series fought off critics to earn $51.8 million over four days.
