Photo by Russell Brand’s friend.
Russell Brand might be getting a divorce but nothing can stop him from doing what he does best – being funny. I saw Russell Brand prior to his performance at the Secret Policeman’s Ball, a benefit for Amnesty International, at Radio City Music Hall on March 4, 2012. He was in a huge rush, but still took the time to take a photo with me. But he didn’t pause, so the photo came out a bit blurry for my taste. A little while later, I saw him again and he asked if I was satisfied with my original photo (not posted here), When I said that I wasn’t, he convinced his friend to take another picture. But not before he told me that I need to work on taking better photos (Oh Russell, if you only knew). Right as his friend was about to snap the photo, Russell put his arm around me and said “I’m gonna make a funny face. It’ll be better.” He was right! What a fun and funny experience! Thanks Russell!
