Playboy 20Q Interview — Russell Brand [SLIDESHOW]

Font Size:

Russell Brand is not one to hold back.  In the June issue of Playboy, he opens up about…everything.  Brand shares a variety of anecdotes that offer a glimpse into his very strange, funny, and fascinating life.  His stories include, but are not limited to: the time his father got him a prostitute in Hong Kong at age 16, his stint in sex rehab, 11 arrests, controversial remarks about George W. Bush, and how being the world’s sexiest vegetarian “is akin to being the world’s most lovable pedophile.”

In the interview, Brand doesn’t waste any time getting down to the juicy details:

When I was at my most promiscuous, I was like a charging locomotive. My selection process was outsourced. I had a team of experts who took care of finding women for me. They had very specific instructions. It was as if I was talking to a wine steward. “I’m looking for something French, a bit fruity, smells of oak.” [laughs] I’ve reached a point in my life where I understand empirically that this is not the answer. When you sleep with loads of women, it becomes a bit pointless and futile.

Brand, a reformed sex addict, also gives a frank depiction of what sex rehab’s really like:

There aren’t hot blondes ripping off their clothes and saying, “I’m gorgeous, and I just can’t get enough cock!” It’s just sleazy men wanking off in dark corners. Let’s not shy away from it: They’re pedophiles. Pedophiles and perverts. I’m sorry if I burst your bubble and took some of the magic out of it, but you had to think about it for only 10 seconds.

Brand is newly engaged to pop singer Katy Perry (who famously “kissed a girl…and liked it“) and stars in a new movie called ‘Get Him to the Greek,’ which comes out this summer.  We sure hope Katy knows what she’s getting into.
