London: British comedian Russell Brand, who will tie the knot with Katy Perry this month, reveals that Dame Helen Mirren caught him touching her innerwear.

The Oscar-winning actress has recently filmed two movies - "The Tempest" and "Arthur" - with Russell.

"I did `The Tempest` and that`s where I first met her. She couldn`t have been more charming, sexy, convivial and brilliant. She just put me at ease. I couldn`t have been more willing to have a particular oedipal bath with that woman," femalefirst.co.uk quoted him as saying.

"I was at a costume fitting for `Arthur` and they had the bras hanging up that she`d be wearing and I thought, `I`m going to go and touch them`. So I did and she was there and she saw me doing it, she just let me get away with it. They`d not been on her yet, but they will be," he said.

Russell started his career as a comedian and appeared in movies such as "St Trinian`s", "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" and "Get Him to the Greek".
