Re-Branded: Russell Brand ditches old image for smart makeover as he tries to further Hollywood career


Smart: Russell Brand version 2.0, left, seen in New York last week, is vastly different to how the comedian used to look, right, in 2008

He was famous for his backcombed bird's nest hair, heavy kohl eye make-up and rockstar clothing and jewellery - but Russell Brand showed just how far he's watered down his image as he tries to further his film career.

The 35-year-old star has swapped edgy for anodyne as stand-up takes a backseat for the silver screen - and the Camden style ditched for sleek Stateside grooming.

The hair is now smooth, glossy and conditioned and his beard, never mind any designer stubble, is long gone.

His skin looks suspiciously like he's had a few facials and there's no trace of eyeliner.

His old skintight black drainpipe jeans have been relegated to the back of the wardrobe and winklepicker shoes kicked under the bed.

Even his rockstar jackets have been jacked in for nice smart business-style suits for television appearances, including the grey one he wore last week for U.S. chat show Live With Regis And Kelly.

And Russell currently has two films topping the U.S. box office charts. He is one of the stars of animated movie Hop, at Number One, and Arthur us currently at Number Two.
