Sends Homeless Guy's

Russell Brand
turned a homeless man's life upside down today -- literally -- but in the end he made things right.

Russell was tooling around Hollywood in his Range Rover at around 9 AM, when he accidentally smashed into a homeless guy's shopping cart, filled with recyclables and other stuff.

But Russell knows when he makes a mess -- he quickly jumped out of his car and helped the homeless guy pick up the stuff and place it back in the cart.

The homeless guy wasn't hurt -- and went on his merry way.

It's Russell's latest homeless person encounter -- in September he took a bunch of homeless dudes to breakfast. Another time he let a homeless man use his bath.

Hey -- I'm the guy in the light blue shirt there. Russell did NOT crash into the guy. The guy stumbled with his cart, trying to get over the curb. Russell jumped out to help, while drivers sat in their cars honking at the homeless man.

So refreshing to hear of him helping the homeless again. I am just kind of baffled why some people think he is obligated be giving his money away. If its because he has more than they do, then we all should be. It's not right to assume he doesn't give to charity. He seems to have a soft spot in his heart for the homeless, which is wonderful, but it shouldn't be expected for him to hand his cash to others. Would be really nice, but shouldn't be expected.

Oh, how white of you for taking a few homeless people to a new jersey type diner for pop-tarts and tea. The man is worth millions, i hope leaving a tip didn't break him.

He didn't hit the homeless dudes cart over at all. He simply saw that it HAD been tipped over and decided to help. There was no car crashing or wrong-doing from Russell, he simply took it upon himself to help out... but that would be a rubbish news story, right? and seeing as he just slammed GQ mag and Hugo Boss, I guess there isn't a really **** smear campaign brewing against him, right? ffs

Idiots, do your homework before you believe this POS article. Brand didn't run into ANYONE, he just stopped to help the guy who had dropped his stuff everywhere, and the stupid-ass media sold it to you idiots as though he ran the cart over.

Moronic Americans...

Press got it wrong. Russell didn't hit the guy, only stopped to help him pick up the cart that got knocked over. But in the comedian's own words, "that's not much of a story."
