Russell Brand avoids talking about divorce from Katy Perry
London: Funnyman Russell Brand might be doing well after filing for divorce from singer wife Katy Perry, but he apparently isn`t ready to speak about the break-up publicly.
The 36-year-old did his best to avoid talking about his personal life when promoting his new FX show, `Strangely Uplifting`, at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.
Asked by reporters how he`s doing, Brand said, "Quite well, thank you. Are you asking because of recent events? You are making the mistake of seeing time as linear. The brilliant American author Kurt Vonnegut, he`ll tell you that if you imagine reality as experienced simultaneously, events become redundant.
"I don`t want to further celebrate the overly elaborate brittle, plastic structures of nonsense that are constantly fired into our minds to distract us from what`s actually
important. If I`d done something actually newsworthy, in some bizarre quirk, then I`d cover it, but if it was more lacquered nonsense designed to distract us from truth, then I`d wisely ignore it."
The actor will soon be seen as Lonny Barnett in `Rock of Ages`. He also said that despite his split from Perry he is very happy.
He told reporters, "I`m happy my darling. I am happy, thank you."
