London (ANI): Actor Russell Brand is leaving no stone unturned in wooing Marilyn Manson's ex-wife Dita Von Teese. The duo was present at a pre-Oscars party and as soon as Von Teese left, Brand had started some text flirting in a bid to woo her. "I saw Dita von Teese at the Chateau Marmont Hotel. At the risk of looking incontinent, I walked past her several times to the toilet to get her attention," The Sun quoted Brand as saying.
"Eventually she saw me and we started chatting. I was saying some brilliantly funny things, slowly tempting her into my web. Later I texted her, 'Oddly, now I feel perpetually bored. Everything seems pale having met you'. She replied, 'You have a way with words'. So it"s all going well," he added.
Meanwhile, Brand is in talks with several producers about turning his autobiography My Booky Wook into a movie. Michael Winterbottom of '24 Hour Party People' fame has been roped in to direct the film and Brand would be playing himself in the movie.
