Kristen Bell says Russell Brand's playboy reputation should not be believed.
The US actress starred with the British funnyman - who's now engaged to singer Katy Perry - in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, where he pursued her on-screen, but off-screen it was a different story.
"He didn't try to mess with me - Russell loves everyone to know he's a womaniser and that he's done all these strange things, but I think secretly hiding inside is a very nice boy," she told the Daily Mirror.
"I had a lovely time with him because he was a bit protective towards me," she added.
Kristen - who voices Cora in Astro Boy - is newly engaged to fellow actor Dax Shephard, but said her love life takes precedence over her career.
"I think your significant other should be way more important than your work," she continued.
"I like working but I know what my priorities are. At the moment, I feel like I'm at a really lovely place and I'm grateful to be there."
