Russell Brand wanted job for the sex

Los Angeles - Russell Brand became a postman to try and bed women.

The 38-year-old former sex addict claims he was a mail man for three weeks and took the job because he thought it would give him a good opportunity to try and chat up women when he delivered their letters.

Speaking on The Late Show with David Letterman, he explained: “I was a mail man for a little while - it didn't go well.

No sex for the postman:

"In my mind there's a cultural illusion that this is an opportunity for early morning conjugal activity. I thought the housewives would open the door with a gesture to the nether regions. It turns out it's not a window for sex. They just want the letters basically.

"I thought as a mail man, sex would be everywhere for me. Simply not true. It was series of doors being closed in my face."

After realising being a postman didn't come with the added bonus of casual sex, the comedian resorted to stealing mail. 

He said: "It was a zero percent success rate so I just resorted to stealing letters. It was the only way to cheer myself up. The money's not very good so you're not incentivised to not steal the letters."
