Russell Brand to Open MTV Movie Awards with a Fart
Russell Brand has already hosted two Video Music Awards for MTV. He is tasked to do Sunday’s 2012 MTV Movie Awards. He said that he wants to keep things fresh and proclaimed that he already concocted a new approach to open the Movie Awards.
Viewers might find his opening monologue unexpected and slightly smelly. Brand said that he has been working on it for some time now. During an interview with MTV News’ Josh Horowitz, he lifted his leg and started making farting noises.
It is still unknown whether Brand will use his gaseous skills during the Movie Awards opener on Sunday. But he confessed that he will work his charm on some of the event’s fiercest female attendees, including Snow White and the Huntsman star Charlize Theron.
Brand said that he met Theron at a party but he didn’t recognize her. He said that Theron came over and said something to him. He showed off like an idiot because he didn’t recognize her right away. He said that he felt bad because he didn’t use any of his moves on her. Brand hopes that he would get an opportunity to re-introduce himself at the MTV Movie Awards. He asked the interviewer whether Theron is single at present.
The 2012 MTV Movie Awards will be held Sunday at the Gibson Amphitheater in Universal City, California at 9 p.m. ET/PT. It has performances from Fun, the Black Keys, Martin Solveig, and Wiz Khalifa. Among the presenters at the ceremony is Death of a Salesman Tony nominee Andrew Garfield.
It is the 21st MTV Movie Awards and it features a new nomination system as well as new categories, such as Best Cast, Best Gut-Wrenching Performance, and Best On-Screen Transformation. Other presenters at the show are Emma Stone, Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemmsworth, Michael Fassbender, Mila Kunis and Mark Wahlberg.
