Russell Brand: 'Arthur' remake was 'a mistake'


British comedian Russell Brand was devastated by the harsh reaction to his flop film "Arthur" and concedes the movie was a "mistake."

Bing: Brand hosting Comic Relief benefit

The star took on the title role in the 2011 remake of Dudley Moore's classic 1981 comedy about a drunken playboy set to inherit a fortune, but it was widely panned by critics.

The funnyman admits his inexperience combined with his over-enthusiasm for the project was a recipe for disaster, and reveals he was hurt by the negative response.

"I didn't know a lot about script construction," he told Britain's The Sun newspaper. "I know more now. I was just embracing things enthusiastically. I thought I could do anything. I felt a little bit bruised (by the reaction). I felt I'd made a mistake."

He does nothing but crap.  Apparently, he is completely unaware of that fact...
