Russell Brand insists he's "never been happier", following his split from pop superstar Katy Perry. The finalization of the couple's divorce is looming, though it doesn't appear to be troubling either of the stars.
Perry has been linked to numerous men since splitting from the British funnyman and is reportedly dating the Florence and the MAChine guitarist Robert Ackroyd. Brand himself has used a different approach to get over his former wife, telling the UK's Sun newspaper, "'I'm dedicating myself to all sorts of interesting things you know.Transcendental meditation, kundalini yoga, these things are right good for the old spirit.You can just use it to have a relax instead of having a fag or a drink. It's like a shower for your brain". As for how he's holding up on his own, Brand explained, "'I try not to compartmentalise things too much into years, but generally speaking I'm happier than I've ever been in my life.Of course I went through a divorce which isn't good for anybody, but that was that bit of time - that was really lovely - this is this bit of time - this is really lovely".
Brand is currently starring in the comedy musical 'Rock of Ages', with Tom Cruise. The film disappointingly debuted at No.3 at the U.S. box office last weekend - behind Madagascar 3 and Prometheus - though could make its way up the chart this week.
