Russell Brand has made no secret of the fact that he still holds a special place in his heart for Katy Perry.
Just a month after admitting to Ellen DeGeneres that he still loves his ex-wife "as a human being," Brand again opened up about the popstar, whom he was married to for 14 months.
"[The marriage] 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," Brand told UK talk show host Lorraine Kelly earlier this week. "You just have to have acceptance of things. She's a person I love but this is a new time."
The funny man also revealed the hardest part about the divorce process: the paperwork.
"Divorce is difficult because of the admin. A lot of admin!" he joked to Kelly.
Brand's zen-like attitude isn't all that surprising, given that he and Perry had a reportedly amicable split. When the divorce was finalized in February, Perry reportedly signed the divorce docs with a smiley face. Brand requested no money from his former wife, though he may have been entitled to half of what the popstar had earned during their marriage because the pair had no prenup. The 37-year-old comedian also reportedly gave Perry rights to the $6.5 million home they bought while married.
