"Extra's" AJ Calloway caught up with the big stars of "Arthur" at its premiere in NYC Tuesday night. Russell Brand compared himself to his character and described Arthur as a "crazy, fun-loving, lunatic, womanizing cad like I used to be before I got married."
The comedian said he is "happily married" to wife Katy Perry and would sacrifice everything for love -- like the song by Meat Loaf. "I haven't been watching 'Celebrity Apprentice' but I've heard he's [Meat Loaf] being eccentric," Brand said.
Jennifer Garner plays Russell's love interest and gushed about co-star Helen Mirren. "Oh look, Helen Mirren's here. You have to take a moment because she's so glamorous and beautiful. I always have to stop and have a moment when I see her."
Mirren posed for the flashing lights wearing head-to-toe Lanvin. The respected actress joked that working with Russell Brand was a "nightmare," adding, "I think in some other universe, like on the planet Zod, Russell and I have had a relationship."
Quench your thirst for "Arthur," sloshing into theaters April 8.
