Russell Brand took a group of homeless people for breakfast yesterday (26.09.12).

The British comedy actor - who split from Katy Perry after 14 months of marriage in December 2011 - took a small group of people to the Newsroom Café in West Hollywood for a nourishing early morning meal.

Russell himself was very casually dressed for the occasion in an oversize woolly hat, red trainers and a baggy pair of pyjama bottoms.

It is the second time this month Russell has been spotted helping the homeless, as he helped a street dweller by giving him water and having a chat with him after he left a yoga class.

He also gave the man - who was topless at the time - a white t-shirt to protect from the heat of the Californian summer.

Russell offered him a car ride to destination, which was accepted, and the 'Rock of Ages' star was reportedly overheard saying they were going to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting.

Beforehand, the rescued man was apparently seen rolling around in the dirty parking space and appeared to be under the influence of some kind of narcotics.

Russell himself is a recovering sex addict, heroin user and alcoholic.
