London, Mar 31 (ANI): English comedian Russell Brand has vowed to give away his fortune to help ease world poverty.

Brand, 33, had written on his website about how he felt about his fame and his wealth, and how it only brought him more problems.

“I’m proud to say that after a relatively short period of wealth I now recognise the insufficiency of personal privilege in a world with so much poverty,” the Daily Star quoted him as writing.

“‘Does that mean you’re going to give away all your money then?’ I imagine someone who dislikes me yet who has mysteriously found their way onto my website saying, and the answer is ‘Yes’,” he added. (ANI)
