Russell Brand gave the interview below to Defamer. I feel it is my duty to share this with you, as it is a LOL of epic and earth-shaking proportions [Website – Amy Grindhouse].
I read this while at work and it was breathtakingly funny. It even made me laugh out loud, while I was totally s’posed to be working.
Brand, you are my new hero! This interview is perfection. I hereby declare this the ‘EPIC LOL of 2008′.
In brief, the premise of the interview was to quiz Brand on his knowledge of American culture, prior to his appearance on the MTV VMA’s.
See the excerpts below, for my favourite parts, or go over to Defamer and read the whole thing (trust me, it’s worth it).
DEFAMER: Right now, we’re all wondering what was up with this Christian Bale assault case, and maybe you can explain it to me. Apparently in the UK, you can go to jail for verbal assault? What’s up with that?RUSSELL: In England, we have such good manners that if someone says something impolite, the police will get involved. Christian Bale, I believe whilst in a restaurant, rolled his eyes at the lighting. That is an offense punishable by five years in prison in the United Kingdom. I admire Christian Bale and I think he’s one of the greatest living actors on the planet currently, but we cannot shirk when it comes to good manners. If it’s true that he also dropped a napkin on his way to the lavatory, then I think that he should possibly receive the death penalty.
DEFAMER: Lastly, I want to know your thoughts on the most important issue of our time…
DEFAMER: …Brad and Angelina just had the twins.
RUSSELL: Thank God. The thing is that they’re both so stupidly beautiful and good-looking and attractive that their children are born looking gorgeous! It’s unsettling. That first one they had, she had sort of a Marilyn Monroe mouth. I don’t think they should breed, those two people. I think their adoption policy is probably better because when their genes come together, it creates a storm of attractiveness so potent that it could one day bring down the planet. [...] No one needs that on a baby! No one needs a baby with eight-inch-long eyelashes.
