Russell Brand More Worried About The Environment Than Being Typecast

Some celebrities have a little trouble with perspective. Not Russell Brand. He knows that his frustrations in Hollywood are nothing compared to issues like the environment.

Brand, who used to be quite the ladies man and suffered from substance abuse, keeps getting cast in roles where he plays variations of his former self.  In his new movie Arthur, Brand is playing an alcoholic and layabout heir to a billion dollar fortune.

The comedian said about his chronic typecasting, “It was certainly something I considered. But when you consider problems such as the ecological destruction of our planet or racism and war – being typecast doesn’t seem like such a big issue. Typecast! Of course it’s typecasting. But I’ve got a while. I’m not planning to die too soon, so I’ve got other options.”

Russell Brand has proven to be a more responsible star than many but, like all of us, he still has more to learn when it comes to being the perfect eco-warrior.

When told that his Range Rover might not have been the most environmentally friendly car choice, he said, “Isn’t it? Oh f**king hell. Now I’ve got to learn more stuff. I stopped drinking bottled water. What can I do? I’m a vegetarian. What does everyone want?!”

Well, he asked for it! Ecorazzi readers, what more could Russell Brand be doing to help the environment?
