Russell Brand has said that he deserves knighthood and says his fans will revolt soon if not presented with the honour soon.
The former drug and sex addict, who has professed his love for Queen Elizabeth and the Royal Family, revealed that he thinks he is in line for the honour.
"They can't ignore me for much longer. I should have a knighthood. Otherwise the people will revolt," Contactmusic quoted him as telling the Sun.
The 'Arthur' star, who moved to Los Angeles to pursue his acting career, also asserted that he was particularly upset for having missed out on the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations in London earlier this month.
"It hurts my heart. It's a great time in our country and I'm devastated not to be there. I love the Queen and have never been so in love with her since I came to America," he said.
Russell, who filed for divorce from singer Katy Perry in December, revealed before the event that he would be celebrating regardless of his whereabouts.
"But we will be honouring the Queen in our own special way," he added.
