The funnyman admits the experience was a sobering
one, revealing: "There aren't hot blondes ripping off
their clothes and saying, 'I'm gorgeous, and I just
can't get enough!' It's just sleazy men pleasuring
themselves in dark corners. Let's not shy away from
it: they're paedophiles and perverts."
It seemed to have the desired effect - in 2009 he was
tamed into marriage by Katy Perry.
But the relationship lasted just 14 months and
Russell admitted he bounced straight back to his old
ways - telling US shock jock Howard Stern: "I had a
bit of a reaction (after the divorce).

my chocolate factory'."
