Comedian Russell Brand gave a homeless man a new shirt and drove him to an AA meeting, according to reports.

The Mail Online website reports that the 37-year-old star was on his way out of a yoga class when he spotted the unidentified individual in an alleyway.

Brand is said to have then walked over, offered him some water and went on to have a conversation with him. He is also reported to have given the shirtless male a white T-shirt to protect him from the sun.

Russell offered him a car ride to destination, which was accepted, and the Rock of Ages star was reportedly overheard saying they were going to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting.

Brand has been sober since 2002 and credits his recovery to attending regular AA meetings as well as doing calming exercise and meditation.
