Russell Brand joked he was looking for a new wife at the Mtv Movie Awards last night (03.06.12).

The British funnyman hosted the ceremony at Los Angeles' Gibson Amphitheatre and after beginning his romance with former wife Katy Perry at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2009, the cheeky star said he was looking for another spouse.

Russell also jokingly thanked Kim Kardashian for having a shorter marriage than him and poked fun at John Travolta's recent troubles.

Referencing allegations by male masseurs that he sexually harassed them, Russell said: ''Oh he needed that massage, he was so stiff.''

Although he has a wild past himself, Russell had no problems making jokes at Charlie Sheen's expense.

Alluding to Charlie's drug taking which led to him being fired from sitcom 'Two and A Half Men', Russell jokingly encouraged him to ''neck it, do a couple of lines, unleash the tiger blood''.

The MTV Movie Awards will be screened on MTV at 9pm tonight (04.06.12).
