London: Russell Brand has put his wild days behind him after settling down with Katy Perry.

The `Arthur` actor had a reputation as a bad boy and lothario before marrying pop singer Katy last October but says he was ready to settle down, Redbook magazine reported.

"I think I was ready for it. If you`re wild, like a wild animal, marriage won`t contain you. I think that`s how a lot of people get into trouble. It`s sort of like someone who isn`t toilet-trained - this is the kind of thing that will compromise most marriages."

The comedian says his attitude mirrors that of his character in `Arthur` where he is ready to give up his riches for love.

"I would never give up love; I`d definitely give up money. Now that I`m married, I have this great love and partnership in my life that is the most important thing to me.

"And I`m discovering how lovely permanence and building an ongoing relationship can be, rather than always thinking, what`s next?"
