There are plenty of reasons to go see Rock of Ages when it hits theaters June 15 -- we just didn't realize that a "sexy" guy-on-guy smooch was one of them. But that's exactly what Russell Brand was promoting when he spoke to reporters Thursday in advance of his hosting stint at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards.
We see a lot Brand, 36, and Baldwin, 54, together in the Rock of Ages trailer -- Brand's character works at the club Baldwin's character owns -- but it sure sounds like their relationship extends beyond employer-employee.
"It is right on the mouth. It is sexy because Alec is a sexy man," Brand gushed of the kiss. "I certainly don't regret [kissing him]. I'd do it again if there was a sequel -- or even if there wasn't." Ha!
Brand's affection for his male Rock of Ages costars doesn't end with Baldwin; Russell was also quite taken with Tom Cruise, who plays chiseled rock god Stacee Jaxx.
"You'd think if [someone] were the biggest movie star in the world, they wouldn't be so interested in other people, but he's very interested and caring," Brand said. "He really cares about what he does. He's a serious guy but very sweet. He's a joy to be around."
The MTV Movie Awards air Sunday, June 3, at 9 p.m./8 p.m. CT.
