Russell Brand has a crush on Samantha Barks. The comedian - who was previously married to Katy Perry - has taken a shine to Les Misérables
breakout star Samantha Barks, who played Eponine, and spent most of the post-Oscars Vanity Fair party in Los Angeles flirting with the "bedimpled angel." He enthused in an interview with the Daily Mirror
: "So many ladies caught my eye; it was like an assault on the senses. But I like that girl from Les Misérables
, Samantha. We chatted and she's from the Isle of Man. She's like a bedimpled, little Manx angel. She was a lovely, beautiful young woman." Russell, 37, added: "I'm single at the moment actually and enjoying it... I'm concentrating on work now and not especially looking for anyone."
