Russell Brand: "I have nothing but love for Katy Perry, I wanted to have children"

Fresh from calling his ex-wife Katy Perry an "arse-ache" earlier this week, Russell Brand has declared he has "nothing but love" for her in a new interview with Howard Stern's Sirius/XM radio show.

"She's young, successful and dedicated," said Russ.

"[The reality is] you can't fully understand it until you do it. I was really into the idea of marriage and having children."

He went on to say that he cherished the 14 months they spent together - despite Katy's new flick Part Of Me heavily implying that it was largely Russell's fault that the marriage broke down.

"She's a good person, I've got nothing but love for her. I loved her so much, it just seemed like the sensible thing to do ... I just loved her so much."

"This isn't really working out, it's a difficult situation ... I was really, really in love with her, but it was difficult to see each other ... We were together when it was right to be together, and when it wasn't we worked it out ... It was a lovely relationship ... it mostly didn't work for practical reasons ... We did work it out, she's happy, I'm happy."

"I don't want anything to hurt her. She's younger than me, she's a young woman and she's beautiful and she's sensitive and I care about her deeply ... I don't want to be too glib."
