Shirtless Russell Brand Covers Rolling Stone

Shirtless Russell Brand Covers Rolling Stone

Russell Brand goes shirtless and teases his pants off on the latest cover of Rolling Stone, on stands now.

“I’m constantly distracted by my ambition, narcissism, vanity, desire, lust,” the 34-year-old fiance of Katy Perry jokes. “I don’t pretend to enjoy anonymity.”

When asked about his rough working-class childhood, Russell shared, “[I was] tubby and unlovely and odd and obscure and bland.” (He has since overcome a battle with a debilitating drug addiction.)

FYI: Russell is wearing Kill City jeans.

  • Ick


  • sid

  • The pose

    It’s like “smell my pit” No thanks.

  • jd

    He weighs less than his assclown girlfriend.

  • sam

    Why is a retarded person doing a pirouette on the cover of RS.

  • Kieran

    This guy needs a serious gym program. Build some
    muscle & get healthy. He looks like a strung-out junkie! GROSS

  • eyeh8twilight

    This is why I’m very happy I’m a RS subscriber! Not only am I keeping this magazine, I might get a second copy and I think I will definitely get the poster sized version of this cover. Russel Brand is so sexy, and shirtless, OMG!

    He just drips “sleazy rocks star”-but in a very good way.

  • yo sista

    Are u sure he’s straight?

  • cool girl

    @jiceses: Russell’s tattoo means “GO WITH THE FLOW” and it’s written in sanscrit! Katy has the same! :)

  • hmm

    I think he’s trying to come off as sexy, but there is nothing sexy about Russel Brand. Sorry.

  • Honey301

    I think he looks hilarious all its missing is whip cream on his nipples

  • Angela

    He’s really hot!!! not everyone likes girly boys

  • ana

    Wow!hotttttttttttttttttttttttt!this men…sex in brains!i love his wicked humor !

  • Too gay for words

    I thought it was a gay magazine!!

  • laverdadduele

    grossness incarnated

  • kizbit

    There’s a certain ickiness to that photo. Eeeew.

  • funny

    Russell may look like he hasn’t bathed and shaved in forever but he is SO quick witted (and imo, hilarious), you can’t deny he is witty as f*ck. And I really doubt he cares just how he comes across lol, I strongly doubt he was trying to be “sexy” ha. He walks around shirtless all the time after all, it’s kind of in his nature. He’s just hilariously super flamboyant.

  • Sacha

    i like russell brand but gross cover. lol.

  • mimi

    His body is sort of girly. That said, I am feeling equal parts of lust and disgust on this one.

  • rebekah

    haah that pose is so russell!!! wierd and quirky he’s an odd kind of hot LOVE IT

  • Lucy

    anyone liking this retarded faker clearly likes garbage.
    Same goes for his coke addicted fake gf.

  • guinness

    WHY WHY WHY. is he in the movies? is he an artist? is he a comedian? isn’t he “that guy” that did the tasteless joke on a TV icons grand daughter? NICE. eeewwwah. “hey, dad, meet my fiance–”. NOT. narcisistism is a brain disorder, not an attribute for a life-long mate. Can you tell I am not a fan.

    Rolling Stupidity. ….”retard faker” is pretty accurate!

  • T Pain

    He’s not hot, not funny, not a good actor, and not original.

    I saw him on Leno and wasnt impressed. The only reason media pas attention to him is because of his style of dress. NEXT!

    P.S why is he posing like a chick?

  • Lindsay Beach

    I love him, he is funny

  • shaleen

    Why people get thumbs down when they think he’s hot? Personally, I don’t think he is. Respect people’s opinions!

  • http://SolutionError SolutionError

    a bad decision on Rolling Stones’ side.

  • Jamie


  • ayjay

  • Babbykorndog

  • Barbara

    I love this guy! He was hilarious on Leno. He’s cute when he smiles, in a quirky way. I never thought I would like him until I saw him in Forgetting Sarah Marshall. But he’s really funny, and as another poster said, he’s quick witted.

  • Schnee


  • Morgan23

    He is beyond gross! He needs a bath!

  • fran

    i’m sorry for all his fans, but… disgusting!
