Oscar night is for giving compliments and kisses – and E! red-carpet host Ryan Seacrest was on the receiving end of both – from Russell Brand.
The funny Brit, his mother Barbara at his side, told Seacrest in a flirtatious manner that he was looking very handsome and then leaned in to plant a smooch on Seacrest’s cheek.
Rather than blanch at the budding bromance, Seacrest leaned over to return the kiss – on the cheek of Russell’s mom.
As for staying connected while Perry’s on tour, Brand said, “Every so often I just look at a photograph of her and smile. That’s enough.” He then quickly interjected, before any gossip starts spreading, “No, we see each other all the time.”
