Russell Brand admits `Arthur` was a mistake

London: Funnyman Russell Brand has admitted that his 2011 film `Arthur`, a remake of the classic 1981 Dudley Moore comedy, was a mistake.

The film, about a drunk playboy set to inherit a fortune, failed at the box office besides being panned by the critics, the Sun reported online.

"I didn`t know a lot about script construction. I know more now. I was just embracing things enthusiastically. I thought I could do anything," the 37-year-old said.

The comedian, who is famous for taking digs at famous people, admitted that he was hurt by the harsh criticism of the movie.

"I felt a little bit bruised. I felt I`d made a mistake."

Apart from Brand, the film starred Helen Mirren, Jennifer Garner and Greta Gerwig.
