Russell Brand has been snapped helping out a bloke who appeared to be homeless, outside a yoga class in LA.

After Rusty had finished doing the downward dog and was headed out to his Range Rover, he came upon a 'bewildered' looking chap, who seemed to be both under the influence and in need of some help.

Russell's said to have given the man a drink of water and a t-shirt, before welcoming him into his car and reportedly taking him to an Alcoholica Anonymous meeting.

"This guy Thomas was in a bad way," a source told The Sun.

"He’d been lying on the floor and talking to himself. On leaving the studio in his car, Russell noticed him there and was parked and out of the vehicle in no time to help. He asked the guy his name and what was wrong. “I heard him offer to take him for some food.

"Thomas said he wanted a burger, to which Russell replied, ‘You don’t want any of that crap, come to my house and you can have some proper food and a nice bath’.”

A former heroin addict himself, Russell seems to be willing to try and help others that may be going through something similar to his past experiences, which is actually pretty lovely, isn't it?

Now if he would only wash his hair.
