Reliably cheeky Russell Brand was on fine friendly form last night at the premiere for the St Trinian’s movie, introducing us to his lovely mum Barbara at the after-party in London’s Cirque nightclub. He also kindly offered to write our review for us, along the lines of "Russell Brand makes a deft transition from small screen to big in an assured and highly impressive debut movie performance. Here, I'll lend you my pen..." Russell plays dodgy criminal Flash Harry in the modern update of the 50s/60s film series, which stars Rupert Everett as the school’s headmistress, Colin Firth, Lena Headey (300), Mischa Barton, Celia Imrie, Lily Cole and Girls Aloud as the school band. We also met the pretty and talented Juno Temple (Atonement), who plays pupil Celia in the film, and whose best friend made us feel very old by telling us she’s in her final year of GCSEs at school. St Trinian’s opens on Friday 21 December, and you can read our review of it in the edition of heat published that day.
