After a previous failed attempt at winning over Charlize, Russell hoped to woo the A-list while he hosted the 2012 MTV Movie Awards. Check out what he said about his first encounter with the single mom:
"Oh my God, she's amazing, isn't she? [I met her], and it was embarrassing," Russell said. "I messed it up bad. I met her and didn't recognize her. I was at a party, and I was looking at birds. She came over and [said] something untoward. And I showed off like an idiot, not recognizing her." [Then] I thought, 'Oh no! I didn't use any of my moves!'"
Looks as if Russell didn't have much luck the second time around either, but who knows...maybe a third time's a charm for this Englishman.
