Russell Brand told off by co-star

Russell Brand told off by co-star Russell Brand was reportedly told off by Billy Connolly after he refused to start filming until a wardrobe girl flashed her breasts at him. The comedian's demand delayed shooting on the first day for two hours, so the assistant eventually gave in for the sake of the schedule. The 37-year-old - who had a stint in sex rehab - was filming Eric Idle's musical What About Dick? in Los Angeles with fellow comedians Billy, 69, and Eddie Izzard, 50. A source told The Sun: "It was just a bit of fun. Billy got annoyed when he found out and gave Russell a stern ticking off." The insider continued: "Russell is a charming scoundrel and everybody let him get away with murder on set - except Billy. But after their heart-to-heart he settled down and gave a great performance and filmed the scenes like a consummate professional."

    @Johnathan, There are such things as sex-addicts. Just as anyone can have an addiction to just about anything else.

    That was innappropriate! He should not have asked that from any employee. Does Hollywood not have the same type of rules the regular workforce has? If I asked an employee to flash a breast (And believe me I would love to ask a couple of them), then I would be canned.
