Born June 4, 1975 in Grays, Essex, England, Russell Brand gained attention as the host of Big Brother's Big Mouth, a Big Brother spin-off. In 2007, he had his first major film role in St Trinian's and in 2008, he had a major role in Forgetting Sarah Marshall which led to a starring role in Get Him to the Greek in 2010. He also worked as a voice actor in the animated films Despicable Me in 2010, Hop in 2011 and Despicable Me 2 in 2013. He played the title character of the 2011 film (remake) Arthur. His dismissal from MTV, his behavior as a presenter at various award ceremonies and his drug use have all been highly publicized.

His attire, another source of attention-getting, is a flamboyant bohemian style, describing himself as looking like an S&M Willy Wonka. He says he has been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and bipolar disorder and has also suffered from bulimia and experienced a period of self-harming. Brand met Katy Perry in mid-2009 when she filmed a cameo for his film Get Him to the Greek (which landed on the cutting room floor). They began dating and the two became engaged on New Year's Eve 2009 during a holiday in India. They privately married on October 23, 2010. Brand ended the marriage 14 months later by filing for divorce on December 30, 2011, a process that was finalized in July 2012.
