(LOS ANGELES) — Russell Brand says he still hopes to be married one day -– just not today.
In an interview with Esquire magazine, the actor says, “I’d like to be married. I’m just not transmitting that frequency of ‘Soulmate! Soulmate!’ I’m transmitting the frequency of ‘Mmm!'”
Referring to his nearly two-year marriage to Katy Perry, Brand says, “I tried it and I loved it.”
Brand says their divorce had nothing to do with her character. “I really think she’s a lovely, beautiful person…It’s just hard isn’t it? She’s got a lot of options, I’ve got a lot of options, so you’ve got to really, really want it.”
As for what triggered their split, Brand admitted it was partly due to adjusting to a different pace of life then they were used to and prioritizing their respective lives and careers. “Some of it’s the fame, but I think getting married is…you’ve got a whole other person that you’ve got to make as important as you.”
