Russell Brand: Noel Gallagher Was Like 'a Drunk Uncle'

Comedian was left cringing with embarrassment when he introduced movie co-star to his best pal Noel Gallagher when the pair became embroiled in an argument moments after meeting.

But he was mortified when the star verbally attacked Hill, comparing the musician's rude behavior to a "drunk uncle". Hill explains, "I met him (Gallagher) once on Russell's radio show (in England) and somehow immediately got in an argument with him that I had nothing to do with! He was really surly."

Brand adds, "I was really embarrassed, 'cause I'd been telling him (Hill) how nice he was. He was like a drunk uncle."
