Russell Brand Speaks On Monogamy & Sobriety Following His Split From Katy Perry

It's been less than a week since news hit that Russell Brand filed for divorce from Katy Perry, and on Thursday, he chatted about monogamy and his journey through sobriety on comedian Marc Maron's podcast WTF, his first interview since the separation. 

Russell, 36, admitted while talking about his addiction and the 12-step program that he has been known to "fall into women." The Get Him to the Greek star reflected on his wilder days, pre Katy, saying, "There were women in the bed all the time, and there'd be crossovers. ... I created this union. It was like this revolution from nothing." He said this phase quickly ended with the crying women and "running mascara."

The Arthur actor chatted about his love of meditating, disclosing that he sometimes thinks, "[Sometimes I go], 'It's a bit sad, isn't it, that I can't do whatever I want. Why can't I f*** everybody?'" He later described himself as a "broken hammer", admitting,  "I'm starting to realize I prefer my performance me over my actual me."

He also confessed that he can be difficult at times and tends to believe he's always right. "For me, I have a singular vision. ... I'm indistinguishable from my most horrible flaws."

Though he didn't speak on Katy and his divorce filing, he did disclose quite candidly his life struggles. What do you think of the hour-long conversation? Does it give some insight into Russell and Katy's estranged marriage?

    You really make it seem really easy along with your presentation however I find this matter to be really one thing which I think I might by no means understand. It sort of feels too complex and extremely large for me. I am looking ahead in your next submit, I will attempt to get the cling of it!

    He spoke BEFORE his split from Katy... and the bit about sleeping with women referred to his days before he met Katy, too. So no real story here

    Not "following" his split. The interview happened back on Dec. 13.
