Miranda Cosgrove, Steve Carell and Russell Brand all walked the yellow carpet for the UK premiere of their film Despicable Me at The Empire Cinema at Leicester Square in London on Monday. While the three actors are huge celebs, the stars all got outshone by the dozens of mini minions marching around and mingling with any fortunate enough to cross their precious paths.
Russell almost didn’t make it to the premiere — but this wasn’t the result of some devious plan by a super villain. The Brit bad boy has simply been a little under the weather recently. So much so, that he missed the unveiling of his wax figure at Madame Toussauds.
The funnyman pulled himself together enough to make a quick appearance at the premiere and we never would have guessed he was still sick if he hadn’t tweeted, “I feel a bit poorly so please mollycoddle me.”
Luckily for Russell, the minions proved more than willing to “mollycoddle” him before the comedian set off for the airport on motorbike to launch My Booky Wooky in NYC.
