Russell Brand Gives Homeless Man A Helping Hand

| Filed under: InspirationRussell Brand

What a mensch!

Russell Brand was on his way out of a yoga class when he saw a homeless man all drugged up and rolling on the ground.

Like a good samaritan he went over to the man and offered him some water - he also gave him a white t shirt to help protect him from the sun.

He then gave the man a ride where the actor was apparently heading to an AA meeting - meetings that Brand claims has saved his life after the actor suffered with drug and alcohol addictions.

Way to be a good man to your fellow human beings, Brand!

    Finally! One article without mentioning his ex wife. He deserves more than that. The media should do a research about how much he helps (financially) the organizations that have saved his life. His media image has nothing to do with the person I met…

    Very sweet of him to do this. He probably thought "were this me, I'd want someone to help." Even if the man doesn't seek help, at least Russell tried.

    Re: Magdalena – I don't think that was the reason he helps his fellow man.. Not to be ugly, but if you read his books you would know that someone reached out to him in much the same way and saved him from the brink and now he does the same for others. He is a good man, the press just rips him to pieces, and makes people have narrow minded opinions of him which aren't in the least bit fact. The cameras have nothing to do with what he does at all. He is actually a good human being trying to help others, whether there are cameras around or not. The man can't take a piss without a camera being there anyway…NOT his fault!

    I read Russell's book. It explains a lot about who he is and how he became an ex-addict. The guy still has issues, but he really does have a good heart.

    Is this a girls only blog? If so I'm sorry ladies ;) I think russell brand is awesome he's so funny I'm tired of people ripping on him for taking things to far. Who cares about the Jonas brothers. The reason he said that stuff is because his comedy is meant for adults and only kids like the Jonas brothers. So no child should be watching is stand ups or anything really. Seriously though people are just babies I only dislike a celebrity if they are assholes to their fans. It's understandable when theyre dicks to the paparazzi cause those people are crazy relentless and will do almost anything to get their pics even if it puts the celebrity in harms way. Also who the hell cares about the garbage Jonas brothers? I would never let my kids listen to that crap.
