Russell Brand Talks About Katy Perry on John Bishop Show

Russell Brand Opens Up About His Short-Lived Marriage to Katy Perry

Russell Brand was married to Katy Perry from October 2010 to July 2012, and it appears he still has a special place in his heart for her. During a recent appearance on W Channel's John Bishop: In Conversation With, the 41-year-old comedian reflected on their short-lived marriage, saying that it was difficult to safeguard their relationship from "external influences" because Katy was "obviously very, very occupied and very busy" and that he was "occupied and busy [though] not to the same degree."

"There's the declaration that we are together, in front of people. There was a ceremony, people are invited — that is the point of a wedding ceremony — but in the end there is a kind of intimacy where you acknowledge it's just the two of us," he explained. "And I suppose perhaps we intuitively or explicitly, I don't know, understood that we'd better protect this thing. Now, like, obviously the marriage didn't last for a very long time, and I think that is to do with the undulated nature of fame and that living in those conditions and what was happening."

Despite their split, Russell says, "I still feel very warm towards her." "I feel like, when I hear about her or see her, 'Aw, there's that person. There's that person in the world.'" Katy recently dated Orlando Bloom, while Russell is a father to 4-month old daughter Mabel with partner Laura Gallacher.
