Simon Cowell - Simon Cowell Wants Russell Brand To Give His Movie Money Back
British music mogul Simon Cowell has lambasted Russell Brand over his controversial anti-capitalism stance, insisting the funnyman should give back the multi-million dollar fortune he has made from his movie career.
Brand recently hit headlines by declaring democratic political systems to be unworkable and calling for a revolution to end capitalism.
However, his comments have riled fellow Brit Cowell, who accuses Brand of hypocrisy for claiming to take a stand against disparity of wealth while collecting massive pay cheques for his Hollywood film roles.
He tells Britain's Shortlist magazine, "A revolution? He's getting $10 million a movie. I mean, come on!... Give your money back then, Russell. I always say that about people. Start off as you mean to go on. Donate all the money back to the revolution and then I'll believe it. I'm living in a 10 million dollar mansion and I want a revolution? Give me a break."
