The Forgetting Sarah Marshall actor has been dating Perry since September (09) and the former sex addict admits their budding romance is already having a positive effect on his lifestyle.
He says, “I am living in a different way at the moment. Regardless of what happens in my current situation, I am unlikely to be satisfied with the calamitous promiscuity of the preceding five or six years.”
But Brand refuses to discuss his relationship with the I Kissed A Girl hitmaker in more detail – because he fears the press will misconstrue anything he says about her.
He adds, “She’s lovely and I don’t want her to read anything about herself.
“The other day a journalist from a tabloid in a ludicrous fedora said to me, ‘Russell, are you in love with Katy?’ And I said, ‘You look like a character from a Graham Greene novel. I think I’m in love with you.’ I said that to defuse the situation. But what do they print? They print, ‘I think I am in love’.”
