Russell Brand's Hollywood pal Dame Helen Mirren hopes the funnyman will eventually reunite with his estranged wife Katy Perry as she is convinced fame drove the couple apart.
The British comedian filed for divorce from the singer in late December (11) after just 14 months of marriage, citing "irreconcilable differences" for the breakdown of the relationship.
Mirren, who is close friends with Brand, admits she is saddened by the split as it is "very hard" to keep a high-profile marriage together, but she is adamant they might get back together in the future.
She tells In Touch magazine, "It's very hard to keep things going. Maybe they'll come back together again later on in life! They're both very, very successful."
