Russell Brand Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Russell Edward Brand, better known simply as Russell Brand, is one of the most famous comedians, also an actor, voice actor, and entrepreneur of all sorts. This even includes radio hosting and activism.

Russell Brand was born on the 4th of June in 1975 in Essex, United Kingdom. His net worth is estimated to be $20 million as of late 2014.

His career started in 2000 when he performed a stand-up comedy routine at the Hackney Empire where he competed with other comedians for the title of New Act of the Year. He ended up not winning, but he went on to become a journalist for the famous music channel MTV. His career finally took off when Russell was featured in a show called Big Brother’s Big Mouth. It was well-known, and a spin-off of the very famous the program called Big Brother. Russell became famous in the United States when he got a role in the movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall. He has also voiced several characters in such movies as Despicable Me, Despicable Me 2, and Arthur and Hop. He also starred in the movie called St. Trinian’s which was a huge hit worldwide and had a sequel made. Because of this role Russell got yet another movie to star in, a movie called Get Him to the Greek.

Speaking about his personal life, Russell’s parents were divorced when Russell was about half a year old baby. That resulted in him being raised by his mother alone. In an interview, Russell Brand told the journalist that he was once a victim of sexual abuse as a child. He was molested by a tutor who was hired for him by his mother. Also, the star opened up and shared the story of how his mother was diagnosed with uterine and breast cancer only a year after the sexual abuse took place. This has really helped Russell Brand’s fan to see the other side to their favorite comedian.

Russell appears to be quite a womanizer. At least the media portrays him as one, often writing about how Russell goes on dates with different women or just quoting him on his previous relationships. He has been married once, to the famous pop singer and entrepreneur Katy Perry. They started dating in 2009 and after several months of dating Brand proposed to Perry. They were engaged for almost a year before they got married. The ceremony took place in the Maldives. They had been together for almost 14 months before Russell hired a lawyer and filed for divorce citing the conflict in both his and Perry’s career schedules. Russell’s and Perry’s divorce got finalized in the summer of 2012.

Although Russell has had his personal struggles and a failed marriage, he is still famous and very well-known in show business. It is no surprise that such charismatic man has obtained such great a wealth!

#Quote
1 [on why he would not stand as a Candidate] Because I don't want to become one of them.
2 [on Nigel Farage] This man is not a cartoon character, he ain't Del Boy (Only Fools and Horses.... (1981)), he ain't Arthur Daley (Minder (1979)), he is a Pound Shop Enoch Powell and we gotta watch him.
3 [on the death of Robin Williams] Robin Williams was exciting to me because he seemed to be sat upon a geyser of comedy. Like he didn't manufacture it laboriously within but had only to open a valve and it would come bursting through in effervescent jets. What I might do is watch Mrs. Doubtfire (1993). Or Dead Poets Society (1989) or Good Will Hunting (1997) and I might be nice to people, mindful today how fragile we all are, how delicate we are, even when fizzing with divine madness that seems like it will never expire.
4 [on the British electoral system, which he considers broken] I don't get my authority from this pre-existing paradigm which is quite narrow and only serves a few people. I look elsewhere for alternatives that might be of service to humanity.. Total revolution of consciousness and our entire social, political and economic system is what interests me, but that's not what's on the ballot..I will never vote and I don't think you should either.
5 It is not that I am not voting out of apathy. I am not voting out of absolute indifference and weariness and exhaustion from the lies, treachery and deceit of the political class that has been going on for generations.
6 Communism is just sharing isn't it? We tell children to do it all the time.
7 The great Tupac Shakur, one of your fine poets in America said, 'Role is something you play. Model is something you make. Both them things are fake.' I will be an authentic father, teaching those kids how to steal letters.
8 I remember like when I first got here thinking, 'Oh, my God, I'm allowed a gun. That's really cool', and I set about justifying it in innumerable ways. I went to a gun range and I learned a little bit about shooting and all that kind of stuff. And in my mind it's like I want to be able to protect the people I love...People who knew me said, 'You should not get a gun - you don't have that kind of personality. You're not a person who should have deadly force at your disposal'...After the Sandy Hook tragedy I thought, How can I legitimately hold the opinions that I do and then hypocritically purchase a firearm. So I have not bought one. My feeling is that the more guns that are available, the more likely for them being used incorrectly here.
9 [on his personal best for having orgasms] Once in Dublin... nine... not even in a day, an evening. I felt exhausted the next day.
10 [on Doctor Who (2005)] I'd love to be him, I'd be like a Tom Baker one. Like a sort of long scarf, flouncy, wistful, quoting occasional poems, kicking Cybermen in the nuts. This is what the country needs. I would just travel through time pinching people's a***s. Carry on up the worm hole. Like quantum physics, so that is actually perfect. No, we can't have that in the Tardis, 'ere it's a lot bigger on the inside.
11 The main narrative thrust of The Bible though, like most spiritual texts, including the Quran is: be nice to each other because we're all the same.
12 [on why the title of his show changed from 'Strangely Uplifting' to 'Brand X'] I have a friend who didn't name his twins for months - just called them Big One and Little One. I said, 'Look, they're going out into the world now. You're going to have to give them names'. The same was true for the show. When it was apparent it was real, we named it.
13 [in 2012, to a yakking fan]: You're the worst audience member since John Wilkes Booth.
14 I've learned that it is important to be beautiful to people. That all that matters is that you are lovely to the people around you and the people that you meet. It doesn't matter if you're a show off or a little bit vain, as long as you're good to your mum, and that you're kind, and that you're lovely. And that everything is transient and superficial and to not get attached to material things because you're going to lose it all. And the only thing that is constant is love.
15 Life is transient and the material world is but an illusion; only love is real.
16 There is always the possibility of change. No matter how difficult and how entrenched your situation may seem, be it your personal situation or the situation within society; personal revolution, social revolution are always a possibility... we could form a Utopia at any moment.
17 I just try to see the beauty in things and people as often as I can. I know that's a challenging way to live your life sometimes, but mostly the world is beautiful and people are beautiful.
18 Don't be lost. You are found also. We only have the moment. All that is real is the moment. Everything else is an illusion, so there we are.
19 Love is a spark of divinity. There is salvation in love because it is the thing that unites us all. Love is the spark of divinity that is, in essence, life; that is found everywhere. It don't matter that it's transient, it don't matter that it often breaks our hearts, all that matters is that we can all share it in the moment.
20 You're all beautiful, both inside and out. You mustn't worry about anything; nothing is important except finding love within yourself and being all honourable and glorious and beautiful. Take things dead slowly 'cause nothing you can attain externally has value, only that which is within yourself already is valuable.
21 The interest in me and acceptance of my novelty has been like when Superman leaves his planet and suddenly things that are just normal for him become these superpowers here on earth. Or like Columbus returning from the colonies with tobacco.
22 Change is perpetual and, to be honest, I don't see any great value in being a provocateur around trivial subjects. We're living at a time of incredible change and incredible consequence. And I think perhaps we should preserve our rhetoric for important subjects: the impending ecological doom being brought about by the irresponsibility of big business; the predatory nature of the financial industry; the constant subjugation of the world's poor; the outsourcing of manufacturing industries into the Third World; the growing disparity between the rich and the poor in apparently civilised nations like Britain and the US.
23 When I'm improvising I say anything that comes to mind - a lot of it disgusting.
24 [on explaining his thought process during stand-up performances] My mind is aware, I am the puppeteer of myself. When it's good, there is nothing. I'm just completely engaged in the moment, completely lost within. I have the idea as if there are tendrils that hang from the heavens, and when my head is clear, I can cling to them and nothing happens - I don't have to think, it all just comes. I feel like a conduit so that I am free from my mind... When it's good, it's like I'm not there.
25 It's difficult to believe in yourself because the idea of self is an artificial construction. You are, in fact, part of the glorious oneness of the universe. Everything beautiful in the world is within you. No-one really feels self-confident deep down because it's an artificial idea. Really, people aren't that worried about what you're doing or what you're saying, so you can drift around the world relatively anonymously: you must not feel persecuted and examined. Liberate yourself from that idea that people are watching you.
26 I think that most of the things achievable through drugs, certainly the things that people are trying to find through drugs, are accessible through other means - perhaps like meditation or prayer or contact through some kind of higher power.
27 [on fame and finding inner happiness] When I was growing up, I thought I'd be a lot happier if I was famous and successful and if I had money. And I think that's because we live in a culture that celebrates fame and commerce and consumerism and money, so that if you don't have those things, you feel like you're not enough. And I think we live in a culture that makes me, "Oh, I'm a little bit too fat or I'm too thin, or I'm not right and I don't fit in." And I think that increasingly I've realised is I've tried to change and I've tried to adapt and amend and pursue these ambitions that ultimately - everybody has beauty within themselves, and if you find this and accept this, then you will be happy regardless of external attributes or material things.
28 [on The Tempest (2010) co-star Helen Mirren] Confidence. Potency. Female energy. Roaring oestrogen. She's got that potency, doesn't she? That's why she can play queens and leaders. Women are, of course, powerful, feral creatures - the Earth being so female. If women get in tune to that energy, it'll destroy us all.
29 I'm above 'heat' magazine, I've read a few books. But like, you know, if Robert... if there's two aftershaves on the shelf and one of them's got Robert Downey Jr.'s face on it, that might be an appealing aspect to me.
30 What I think, whilst human beings are diverse and different, ultimately - Everyone knows what it is to be in love. Everyone knows what it is to find something funny. Everyone knows what it is to hate or to be jealous or feel insecure. We're made from the same basic stuff: 30 per cent of DNA the same as bananas, 60 per cent the same as worms and 98 per cent the same as chimpanzees, so we can't be that different from each other.
31 It's no wonder Bob Geldof knows so much about famine - he's been dining out on I Don't Like Mondays for 30 years.
32 It was nice of you to let him have a go, because, in England, he wouldn't be trusted with a pair of scissors. (On George W. Bush)
33 I've always had this impulse to be destructive. I have to say to myself, 'remember, you've got all these things to do - don't ruin it just for the moment.
34 In England, we have such good manners that if someone says something impolite, the police will get involved. Christian Bale, I believe whilst in a restaurant, rolled his eyes at the lighting. That is an offense punishable by five years in prison in the United Kingdom. I admire Christian Bale and I think he's one of the greatest living actors on the planet currently, but we cannot shirk when it comes to good manners. If it's true that he also dropped a napkin on his way to the lavatory, then I think that he should possibly receive the death penalty.
35 It would have been convenient to be gay. Just because of the grooming, the narcissism, stuff like that. But I have this kind of roaring heterosexuality. Traditional, uncomplicated heterosexuality, an almost clichéd Robin Askwith thing. People have always said, are you gay? I've had a lot of that. But it's just not in me. I really like women a lot; I'm repulsed by men sexually.
