Los Angeles: British comedian Russell Brand says he dated actress Teresa Palmer to get rid of her thoughts.
The 37-year-old, who was married to singer Katy Perry in 2011, admits although it might sound weird, but this is how male mind works, dailystar.co.uk quoted Brand as saying.
"She was so beautiful and so radiant that when I looked at the beauty, I thought, `If I have that beauty in my life, everything else will not matter...," Brand said on a chat show.
"I had a relationship with her and eventually that does get it out of your system. I hope that doesn`t sound brutal but that is the nature of the chemical imperative to procreate," he added.
