Russell Brand - Brand Infuriated Dangerous Inmate By Boasting

Funnyman RUSSELL BRAND was left fearing for his life after boasting about his bank balance to a convicted murderer while filming a documentary in an American prison.
The Forgetting Sarah Marshall star summoned the courage to visit Angola Jail in Louisiana as part of the upcoming documentary Happiness.
But the Brit admits his sense of humour didn't go down well with inmate Henry Smith, who spends more than 23 hours a day locked up, after he bragged about his charmed life.
He says, "It was terrifying. The average sentence in there was 80 years for murder. This guy is dangerous, suicidal and once escaped.
"I was in his cell and I started winding him up that I'm in movies and rich. I said, 'This is a bit depressing. You have no possessions. This bed is really hard. I stay in hotels. I'm famous and rich, you see.'
"It was a stupid thing to do. I got out of there as quick as I could.
"Here's a social tip - don't boast!"
