Funnyman Russell Brand has a unique way of charming women into bed - he pretends he is gay.
The Forgetting Sarah Marshall star told U.S. chatshow host David Letterman that women feel less intimidated by his advances if they believe his flowing locks and flamboyant clothing mark him out as gay.
And the British comic insists the subterfuge is a sure-fire way of getting girls between the sheets.
He says, "In spite of appearances, I'm a heterosexual male. Because I'm so well dressed, people think, 'He must be gay. Look at his haircut, he must be gay. Look how sensitive and vulnerable he is, he must be gay.'
"That means women feel safe around me. They trust me. Then bang! Pregnant! Bang! Pregnant! Bang! Pregnant! Another generation. We continue."
