Russell Brand wins over Katy Perry's parents with Nelson Mandela quote
London, December 9 (ANI): Russell Brand probably owes a personal favour to Nelson Mandela who unknowingly helped the comedian charm his girlfriend Katy Perry's parents.
The 34-year-old Brit, who revealed his former sex addiction in autobiography My Booky Wook, said he feared "disaster" when he met his potential in-laws.
"Obviously when I heard that my girlfriend had preacher parents, I thought, 'well, this has got a huge scope for disaster' but it's actually been quite good so far," the Mirror quoted him as telling Absolute Radio.
Brand revealed he was able to win the singer's preacher parents over by quoting the South African leader.
He added: "They love the old school Englishness, there's a thing where the mom said 'Nothing's impossible', and I went, 'well, of course, Nelson Mandela said that everything is impossible until it's done', and she went, 'Oh', and she really enjoyed that." (ANI)
