Being a celebrity is bewildering: Russell Brand

Press Trust of India  |  London 

Actor-comedian says being a celebrity is bewildering and the luxurious lifestyle just gives the illusion of fulfilment.

Brand rose to fame as an MTV presenter, the host of "Big Brother's Big Mouth" in 2004, and went on to star in the Hollywood comedy "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" in 2008, reported Femalefirst.



"The problem with luxury is that all of your needs are fulfilled as soon as you have them, forcing you to realise that you cannot be fulfilled in that way.

"Being a celebrity is like that. It's bewildering. All of that fame and glamour and being in newspapers and flown around in jets, you think it's about you but that's just the symptoms of someone else making money from you," Brand says.
