    Russell Brand Talks Katy Perry: Divorce "Did Work Out in a Way"

    Russell Brand is maintaining a zen attitude about his pending divorce from Katy Perry.

    In an interview with the Lorraine show on the UK's ITV1 while doing the publicity rounds for Rock of Ages, the British funnyman offered up a rather sanguine view as to why their 14-month union didn't succeed.

    "Well, it did work out in a way because you are married for some time, and that's really good, and then you're not married, and that's really good," he said.

    The 37-year-old Brand and the 27-year-old Perry swapped vows in October 2010 in a lavish ceremony in India only to see their marriage unravel.

    While divorce is never easy, the comedian has gracefully come to terms with the split.

    "You just have to have acceptance of things. She is a person that I love, but now this is a new time," he added.  "I suppose a divorce is difficult, isn't it, because of the admin! There's a lot of admin."

    The Get Him to the Greek star, who last month on The Ellen DeGeneres Show confessed he still loves Katy "as a human being," then segued into a discussion of his Rock of Ages costar Alec Baldwin, whom he called "lovely."

    "He's like sort of a big powerful, hairy, sexy uncle. Which in the wrong circumstances could be a terrible thing," joked Brand. "But in the circumstances that I found myself in, it was really lovely. And he's really friendly, and he's really clever, and really sweet and gave me wonderful advice."

    Sounds like a match made in heaven.
