Billy Connolly Has Harsh Words With Russell Brand, After Brand Asks a Woman to Flash Him...

Uh-oh, it seems that Russell Brand has finally gotten in trouble for his womanizing ways. No, no – Katy hasn’t started blasting the comedian (although after everything he’s said about her in recent weeks, she would be well within her right to).

The comedian has actually gotten a very strict telling-off from none other than legendary funny man Billy Connolly. Yes, seriously.


The Irish Sun reports that Billy gave out to Russell after he refused to start filming until a wardrobe girl flashed her boobs at him.

Apparently, Russell’s cheeky demand delayed shooting on the first day of filming for Eric Idle’s musical What About Dick for the grand total of two hours. And, unbelievably, it is reported that the wardrobe assistant actually gave in to Brand’s demands for the sake of sticking to the filming schedule.

Needless to say Billy Connolly wasn’t pleased about what had happened and made sure that Brand new how mad he was.

“It was just a bit of fun. Billy got annoyed when he found out and gave Russell a stern ticking off,” said a source, who was on set at the time of the incident.


“Russell tried to persuade a wardrobe assistant to show him her breasts but she was having none of it – at first. But when it started to look like they weren’t going to get any work done she gave in and flashed him,” the source added.

Russell Brand's demands didn't go down well with Billy Connolly...

Now, we know that Russell shouldn’t have been making those kinds of demands in the first place (sexual harassment, much?) but we still can’t believe that the assistant actually did it.


“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,” said the source.

Fair play to Billy Connolly refusing to let Russell away with pulling such a stunt – what do you think ladies?
