Russell Brand has no regrets about his failed marriage to singer Katy Perry. During an interview with Howard Stern, the British comedian, 37, had nothing but kind words for his ex-wife.

“She’s a good person, I’ve got nothing but love for her,” Brand said during the Sirius/XM radio show.

“I loved her so much, it just seemed like the sensible thing to do [when we got married] … I just loved her so much,” he said of their wedding on Oct. 23, 2010 in India.

But after 14 months, Brand realized, “This isn’t really working out.”

What caused the break up?

Perry’s dedication to her career caused a bit of turmoil for the twosome, who barely got to see each other while she was touring the world for her concerts.

“She’s young, successful and dedicated,” Brand explained of Perry’s career. “[The reality is] you can’t fully understand it until you do it. I was really into the idea of marriage and having children.”

He added: “It’s a difficult situation … I was really, really in love with her, but it was difficult to see each other … We were together when it was right to be together, and when it wasn’t we worked it out … It was a lovely relationship … it mostly didn’t work for practical reasons … We did work it out, she’s happy, I’m happy.”
