Russell Brand: 'I'm Happier Than I've Ever Been In My Life'

Russell Brand ended 2011 with the break up of his marriage to Katy Perry after only 14 months but despite the split the comedian claims he has never been happier.

The ‘Rock Of Ages’ actor admitted that while his divorce was difficult he is happy now and described his life as “lovely”.

“I try not to compartmentalise things too much into years, but generally speaking I’m happier than I’ve ever been in my life,” he told The Sun.

“Of course I went through a divorce which isn’t good for anybody, but that was that bit of time - that was really lovely - this is this bit of time - this is really lovely."

Russell put his happiness down to his work and thinks being an actor is a pretty easy job in comparison to some other stuff he did before fame and fortune.

“I think people take this business too seriously. It’s like a hobby that I get money for,” he explained.

“I’ve done other jobs and they’re much, much harder. “All that matters is I’m honest and I care about it and do it in a loving way.”

While he may not be dating anyone special at the moment the 36 year-old claimed as long as mum Barbara is proud of him that is all that matters.

“If I can think my mum can look at me and she’s proud of me then I’m doing alright,” he revealed.

“If my mum goes: ‘Oh, I don’t think you should’ve done that,’ then it’s like: ‘Oh, right, maybe I made a mistake.’”

What a mummy’s boy!
