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."

HELLO? Simon Cowell has made a living taking advantage of people. Look into his 80 page contract "hopefuls" have to sign. Some of his contractual demands are borderline against human rights. He makes 95 million a year. Bet he has never taken a homeless person to lunch. How does anyone know what Russell gives to charity. Not everyone advertises it or uses it for a photo opp. Russell could have taken Katy Perry's money Simon probably spends 10 million a year in too tight t-shirts. $10 million a movie isn't that much compared to $370 million.
