What Russell Brand REALLY Thinks Of Jeremy Paxman Following Their Already Infamous 'Newsnight' Encounter

Russell Brand may have had a ding-dong of a time encountering Jeremy Paxman on ‘Newsnight’ recently, but it seems the comedian/actor/revolutionary has got a soft spot for Ol’ Beardy after all.

“I didn’t like being called trivial, but I happen to think he’s all right,” Brand told a packed crowd during his Conversation with HuffPostUK on Monday evening.

And he added later, “I like to see him drilling the others.”

Russell Brand spent the evening discussing many topics of the day during his conversation with The Huffington Post UK's Political Director Mehdi Hasan.
