Russell Brand seems to have left his wild partying days behind him, and is better known these days for his healthy lifestyle and devotion to yoga. But what the Get Him to the Greek star hasn’t changed is his devotion to tattered clothes.

And the 37-year-old English comedian took his rocker-hippie-homeless look a step further today when he walked the streets of Los Angeles in bare feet. The British A-lister stepped out in ripped jeans, a grey singlet top and black vest.

He wore dark mirrored shades and layered prayer beads over his neck, and carried a health drink in each hand. The funnyman has revealed, meanwhile, that he would still rather be a drug addict instead of an international superstar.

During filming of a television documentary, the 37-year-old watched footage of his twenty-something self smoking heroine in a dirty Hackney flat and admitted that he missed those days.

Brand said: ‘This is when you know it’s a disease. It doesn’t matter that I was sat in that flat in Hackney and now I’m in the Savoy. I’m jealous of me then.

‘It doesn’t make a difference to me. The money, the fame, the power, the sex, the women — none of it. I’d rather be a drug addict.’

Although the Arthur star has been clean for over 10 years, he still remembers how he felt when on drugs.

He said: ‘Heroin is a greedy drug, it’ll take everything. First it’ll take your money. Then it’ll take your friends, your family, your car, your house.

The confession is part of a documentary which will be shown on August 16 on BBC Three called Russell Brand: From Addiction to Recovery.

Coffee is a lot like beer: It doesn’t really taste that good, and while we might tell ourselves we’re enjoying it, we’re really just putting up with the bitterness until the chemicals kick in and the world becomes a little less unbearable for a while.
