Russell Brand has played down rumors he’s Demi Moore’s new boyfriend.
Reports that the Forgetting Sarah Marshall actor had swooped in to fill her ex-boyfriend Ashton Kutcher’s shoes are wrong says the comedian, as they’re just friends who bonded through yoga.
“Demi Moore, as far as anything more physical goes – she’s just at yoga,” Russell tells The Sun newspaper. “I really like her, she’s really lovely.
“I just see her at yoga. She’s an older lady, she’s incredibly beautiful but that’s that.”
Brand is a big yoga fan and admits it also has its perks…
“It’s full of amazing women,” he added. “That’s a fact. They are all filled with sexual energy. It has been brilliant.
“The yoga centre I had been going to sacked our instructor, so I have moved everyone into my house. I had 30 people doing it in my house.
“I had all the crew on my TV show doing yoga in the studio the other day too. There were 100 people doing it,” Russell continued. “It’s not your normal yoga. It’s like proper chanting, full-on stuff – not for the faint-hearted.
“I like the yoga thing, it’s the dawning of a wonderful new era. It’s proving to be an interesting new phase for me – yoga, transcendental consciousness, meditation, good-looking people. It’s the dawning of a new Sixties.”
