Russell Brand gets close to the Greek, rents Griffith for birthday bash
Hollywoodnews.com: Russell Brand, star of “Get Him to the Greek,” will be hosting his 35th birthday party quite close to the actual Greek Theater in Los Angeles.
His fiancé Katy Perry will be throwing him a fiesta at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles to the tune of $30,000. To rent the facility alone it will cost her almost $7,000.
Why the Griffith Observatory? According to the Sun, Brand is a major James Dean fan, and the dome structure served as the climax in Dean’s “Rebel Without a Cause.”
Speaking to the Sun on whether there’s a bachelor party on the horizon, Brand exclaimed, “What would be the point? I’m not drinking, don’t do drugs any more and I only sleep with Katy, so it would be more fun to just sit in an allotment and stare at a bunch of carrots.”
