Can't say I'm too surprised at the news that Russell Brand and Katy Perry have decided to call it quits after 16 months of marriage. When I talked to him about a year ago, while he was promoting the movie Arthur, the former heroin addict who claims to have slept with literally thousands of women, including nine in one night, seemed somewhat shell-shocked.
“Marriage was a massive, massive transition for me,” the 35-year-old Brand told me. “While material or carnal pleasures are temporarily exciting, love endures, and one has to work hard at it.”
It seems that he didn't work hard enough and the lure of carnal pleasures was too great. Or, as he reportedly told a friend the other day: "Let the good times roll again."
