Helen Mirren - Helen Mirren 'Always' Kisses Russell Brand

Dame Helen Mirren "always" kisses Russell Brand whenever she sees him.

The Oscar-winning actress - who stars alongside the British star in a remake of classic Dudley Moore comedy 'Arthur' - always loves meeting up with Russell because she "can" lock lips with him while many other girls can only dream of doing so.

Speaking at the European premiere of 'Arthur' at Cineworld at London's O2, Helen told BANG Showbiz: "Russell is a great mate, I always have to kiss him every time I see him. I have to kiss him because I can, and I know how many girls want to, but I get to do it. In a very non-sexual way of course!"

The 65-year-old actress was joined on the red carpet by Russell, who took inspiration from Dudley for the title role of the film to make sure he played it to his very best.

Asked how his version of the rich playboy character is different, he said: "DNA, willpower and in little parts a sort of chimera or a Frankenstein. A little bit of acting from Dudley Moore, not actually Dudley Moore of course, but inspiration from Dudley Moore. I'm not a scientist."

Russell had his wife Katy Perry on the carpet for the event, while other stars including singers Noel Gallagher and Mark Ronson also attended.
