Waiter pal’s Gladiator-style thumbs up decides Russell Brand’s date’s fateMay 8th, 2009 - 5:21 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 8 (ANI): Comedian Russell Brand, 33, relies upon a waiter pal’s Gladiator-style thumbs up to decide whether or not to dump his date.
In movie Gladiator, evil Roman Emperor Commodus - played by Joaquin Phoenix - decides on the fate of fighter Russell Crowe by giving the thumb signal.
Sources have revealed that, in the same fashion, the telly star gets the signal of approval if his trusted Maitre D’ likes the girl.
If the thumb goes down, they add, the date is dumped.
Brand admitted to his ruthless mating ritual when visited another restaurant in the trendy Farmer’s Market area in Los Angeles with a stunning pal.
“Russell came in on Tuesday night with a very attractive blonde,” the Sun quoted a restaurant worker as revealing.
“He said he normally takes his dates to the Ulysses Voyage nearby where the head waiter gives him the thumbs up or down to decide their future.
“But he said this one was really nice so he came in here as he didn’t want to subject her to that,” the source added.
The member of staff further said: “Russell was being very charming and attentive and they seemed to be having a great time. She was drinking Apple Martinis and he was joking it was Kryptonite. He then took her to see the film Ghosts Of Girlfriends Past at the cinema - which, given Russell’s reputation, was very fitting.” (ANI)
