Kristen Bell calls Russell Brand 'softie'

June 26, 2012 - London

Kristen Bell has branded Russell Brand as the biggest "softie" she's ever worked with.

The pair teamed up on Forgetting Sarah Marshall, in which the outlandish star played a rock star version of himself.

They had to act out several raunchy sex scenes in the hit comedy, but rather than take advantage of catching his co-star half-n*ked, Bell insists Brand was the perfect gentleman.

"Russell Brand is such a softie. His public persona is just an act. I think that person exists in him, but I don't think that person is him. I worked alongside him so closely, and he is such a kind, gentle, lovely guy," the Daily Express quoted her as telling You magazine.

"We had a lot of sex scenes to do together, and you'd think I would have come away with a ton of juicy stories, but I didn't. He was one of the most respectful scene partners I have ever had.

"We'd be in the bed between takes and he'd make sure that the sheet was pulled up so that I wasn't showing any flesh - he was like a big brother. I feel lucky to know that side of him and I wish more people did," she added.
