'He can dish it out, but can he take it?'

Brand 'insists on sycophantic interviewers'

Russell Brand has been accused of agreeing to be interviewed by only sycophantic journalists.

According to the New York Post the comic will only speak about his new movie Get Him to the Greek to reporters who have previously gone on record as having liked the film.

‘He can dish it out, but can he take it?’ the paper’s Page Six gossip column said.

And surprisingly perhaps, given that close control of actors is an invention of the Hollywood publicity machine, the paper asked: ‘Is that how things work in the UK?’

Brand reprises his Forgetting Sarah Marshall role as wild rock star Aldous Snow in the new movie, which is out in the UK on June 23.
