considering he's pretty average looking really.
not really though, it's because he's very good looking
"hmm, I wonder why, I must check him out"
Honestly, I've dated a guy who women fawn over and it's only because he once toured with a band and then just by banging on about how many women he once slept with there was always, and still is, a continuous line of new women wanting to give him a go themselves.
I don't know. But yeah, the confidence thing.
I'm going on tour next week.
I've slept with some women.
Form an orderly queue ladies....
if you let it be known you're a bit of a lothario then I guess it kind of has effect on the ladies, yes.
I think it makes women more likely to approach you because they're less likely to be knocked back, right?
I'm generalising. I really have no idea.
Girls quite like that you know....
- fashion sense
- global fame
- good looks
And...let's be fair....he IS physically attractive. Cheekbones? Trimmed beard? Tall? Broad shouldered? etc
Of course, as with everything, this is all debateable. But I think it's quite obvious why women fancy him.
Having said this...his autobiography exposed him as a wrecking ball of petulent behaviour, childlike distortion of his own self worth and an ego that floats above his own capabilities. We knew he was shallow, we knew he flaunted his persona, we knew he latched onto a few literary sign posts and milked them dry...this was all part of his charm....but I didn't realise how much he realied on cementing his own legacy. He paints himself into a toneless watercolor, creates a personality out of macroni.
He was best on the radio. He didn't rely on ''grANDiloquent wordery'', poncey asides, braggadocio...he just used his natural repore with Matt Morgan. They were brilliant together.
God I miss the radio show.
A) because Matt Morgan is immensely funny and
B) he brought the best out of Russell. As one of the few people who is given to freely mocking him to his face, Russell always had to be on his game, 'proving' himself to his mate and the whole thing resulted in a beautiful and really quite sweet-natured, self-deprecatory treat for the earholes.
considering hes fairly conventionally good looking
But I also think that's because of whatever the hell he does with his hair that makes it look like rats live there. If I picture him without the hairstyle, he's quite good looking. VAGUELY reminds me of Johnny Depp with his facial structure though, maybe that's it, unless nobody else sees it, I do. Only Johnny Depp is better looking, imo.
Saying ''well...he looks like a watered down version of the worlds most attractive male'' isn't a very convincing argument against Russell Brand. If I had a quarter of Depp's good looks, I'd still be considered a beautiful looking bloke.
intelligent, famous, successful and (though he has myriad problems) a genuinely nice guy.
Is that not enough?
I think Russell Brand is scraggy, skinny, lanky and needs a good wash. Not appealing in the slightest.
but not so astoundingly good looking that he's out of most girl's league.
He is also an absolutely amazing shag.
to say that women love a bastard. But I do love a bastard. Perhaps not as a boyfriend, but as a fling? Definitely :)
Brand is not a bastard in the traditional sense. He's very open about the fact that he's a walking hormone who finds it hard to keep his pants on. He's probably a bit of a twat though.
