London: Actor Russell Brand feels more manly after embarking on a serious relationship with popstar Katy Perry.
The British funnyman who was famed for his womanising ways thinks that the `I Kissed A Girl` singer has given him a new focus in life and he will always protect her from harm, reported a news website.
"Since being with Katy, I`ve got this masculine urge to protect. Whenever there`s an earthquake, I jump out of bed, feeling like I have to fight it, `Ere, stay away from my missus`," he said.
"I`m really in love and happy. It`s a dramatic transformation of my former lifestyle. But I wouldn`t be doing it if it wasn`t making me happy. She`s a good mate Katy, a good laugh," he added.
The animal loving couple recently adopted a kitten named Krusty and the `Get Him to the Greek` star believes caring for the cat is the "perfect training" for having a family.
"That`s why we`ve got a kitten. It`s perfect training for having kids," he added.
