Russell Brand Opens Up About Being Married to Katy Perry

Russell Brand and Katy Perry were an odd couple (to say the least); however, there’s no doubt they shared a deep passion for one another despite their many differences.

Although the duo split after less than two years of being married, it appears that passion is still relevant, and Brand isn’t afraid to admit that.

While spreading word about his latest book Revolution during an interview on the Today show, the Forgetting Sarah Marshall actor didn’t play coy when asked about his 14-month marriage to Perry.

“I really enjoyed it,” he revealed.  “Katy Perry is an amazing person.”

However, he admitted that after tying the knot, the circumstances and expectations surrounding his highly-publicized relationship weren’t ideal.

“What happened was after you get married, like anyone who’s been married or come out of a relationship, you obviously have a lot of expectations,” he explained with his go-to grin.  “And if those expectations don’t work out, then it’s probably time to grow a big beard and walk around in pajamas.  That’s my advice.”

The couple originally wed in October of 2010 and split up in July of 2012 and have been open to talking about their failed marriage.  Katy says she learned a lot from falling in and out of love with Brand.

“Now I know–first and foremost–self love, and then give love away,”  she shared in Rolling Stone over the summer.  “Back then it was mostly just my giving love away with no self- love.  I went though my ‘return of Saturn’ is what they call it.”
