Cosmopolitan magazine honored who they consider to be the most fun and fearless people of the year, and honoree Russell Brand gave a prime example of both those qualities on the New York red carpet.
"It was both fun and fearless," said Brand after climbing down from behind the wall of the red carpet. The comedian explained the move, saying, "It was to demonstrate my validity of this title."
Brand accepted the title of Fun, Fearless Male of Year along with Penn Badgley, Simon Baker, Stephen Dorff, Drake, Armie Hammer, Chris Hemsworth, Cory Monteith, Isaiah Mustafa, Chad Ochocinco, Ian Somerhalder and the year's Fun, Fearless Female Mila Kunis.
Monday night we learned that even the most fearless among us still have at least one anxiety.
"You know how eventually you stop breathing?" said Brand. "I worry about that."
The new crop of contestants on "Dancing with the Stars" are likely experiencing plenty of fears leading up to the show's season premiere on March 21 and "Dancing" alum Chad Ochocinco weighed in on new cast member Hines Ward.
"Being that Hines is a fellow football player," said Ochocinco. "He'll do well. He's part of the Steelers organization and all they do is win, so he'll be fine." The Steelers have played in three Super Bowls in the last five years, winning two of them.
Mila Kunis chatted about how she felt being the only woman honored at the event.
"This is going to be very exciting," said Kunis. "I'm looking forward to it."
Mighty Thor himself made an appearance on the red carpet. Chris Hemsworth plays the comic-book hero in the movie opening this May.
"It's a big, fun action-adventure film," said Hemsworth.
