If you’ve seen any of the Judd Apatow movies, you probably recognize him as the famously troubled mega-successful musician, Aldous Snow. Many have noted similarities between the two larger than life characters: the drug addiction and road to sobriety, the involvement with famous pop stars, even the affinity for yoga and meditation. But Russell Brand has shrugged off these coincidences and credited his successful acting as to why the character seems so natural for him. In any case, we’ve got a lot to learn about this British comedian and actor. Here are some things you didn’t know about him. You may know of Russell Brand being sex forward, and having a way with the ladies, but did you know that he has an award to prove it? Russell Brand has won The Sun’s Shagger of the Year award in 2006, 2007, and 2008 and once admitted to bedding 80 women per month. In a recent interview on Hot Ones, Brand spoke candidly about receiving the award, saying, “I must be honest with you Sean, they never verified the quality of that shagging or even the quantities, they never asked any of the shag partners whether they were happy with the shags, whether they were legitimate shags, whether they’d actually happened.” One thing is for sure, it’s part of Brand’s brand to have an addictive personality and deal with those implications. Although his infamous relationship and marriage to Katy Perry ended after only 14 months, it seems that Russell Brand hasn’t given up on the idea of domestic bliss with a partner. Brand gave the married life another go when he wed Laura Gallacher, the daughter of a sports presenter and a professional golfer. Perhaps being married to another famous person was too much pressure to handle.
