London, Feb 26 : 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.
