Russell Brand has revealed that he now owns a gun.

The British comedian explained that he decided to purchase a gun after moving to Los Angeles, despite his mother telling him not to.

"I've been learning to fire guns. My mother said, 'Don't learn to fire guns, Russell'," he is quoted as saying in The Sun.

"Well, I've learnt and now I've got one. I mean, me, own a gun? I shouldn't really have access to hair gel but I can fire a gun if I need to."

Brand also joked that he finds guns "cool", and said it made him feel like a Hollywood legend.

"To be honest, guns are fun. When I was learning I was firing all over the place - obviously not at people but I was hitting all these targets. I felt like John Wayne," he commented.

Russell Brand was described as a "strange" but "wonderful" man by the Dalai Lama when they met over the weekend.

The actor can currently be seen in musical comedy Rock of Ages, alongside Alec Baldwin and Tom Cruise.
