The comedian - who was previously married to Katy Perry - has taken a shine to the 'Les Miserables' breakout star and spent most of the post-Oscars Vanity Fair party in Los Angeles flirting with the "bedimpled angel". He enthused in an interview with the Daily Mirror newspaper: "So many ladies caught my eye; it was like an assault on the senses. But I like that girl from 'Les Miserables', Samantha. We chatted and she's from the Isle of Man. "She's like a bedimpled, little Manx angel. She was a lovely, beautiful young woman." However, the long-haired lothario wants to shed his reputation for womanising after being linked to a string of women including Geri Halliwell in the wake of his marital breakdown, and is trying not to be quite so forward any more. Russell, 37, added: "I'm single at the moment actually and enjoying it. I'm trying not to roam the streets any more like the Terminator with a laser-sighted penis. I suppose I'm concentrating on work now and not especially looking for anyone." "I think these kind of social situations are designed for people who have got some kind of artificial stimulant inside of them. Sometimes you do fancy a drink and can see why it's necessary. "In a way it's a bit like a work do - it's not that different from the average Christmas party."
