Russell Brand wins most quirky celeb poll in Britain
HollywoodNews.com: Comedian Russell Brand has been voted the most-eccentric celebrity in a new poll.
The 35-year-old star, who appears opposite Jonah Hill in the movie Get Him To The Greek, beat off competition from the singer Boy George in a new survey by the online bank First Direct. Reality show family The Osbournes came in fourth place, with fashion expert Gok Wan coming third.
More than 1,000 British citizens between the ages of 16 and 25 were surveyed in the new poll. Paul Say, the Head of Marketing at First Direct, said: “Quirky celebs with a liberal attitude – typified by Russell Brand – have helped change the public’s view of what being eccentric means. With as many as 32 million Brits – 65 per cent – proudly admitting to quirky characteristics, it seems the nation is now overflowing with colourful eccentricity.”
