Oscars: Mom at his side, Russell Brand smooches the media

Russell Brand at the Oscars

This post has been corrected. See the note below for details.

Oh, that unpredictable Russell Brand! With his mother on his arm, rounding the corner on the Academy Awards red carpet Sunday, Brand responded to the call of one female reporter by sweeping up to her, grabbing her by the face and planting an extra long kiss on her.

The lucky lady can be seen at the bottom right of the photo above.

Brand, who is a presenter at this year's Oscars, is going into the gig "not concerned about censorship or any of the laws," he told On The Red Carpet earlier during his stroll.

We can't wait.

For the record, 10:51 a.m. March 1: The caption in this post originally gave Russell Brand's mother's name as Juliet. It is Barbara. Thanks to commenter @ThatGuy for flagging the error.
