Russell Brand opened up about his failed marriage to Katy Perry in a recent interview with Esquire UK.
In it, he didn't really place the blame on either of them, saying that marriages only work if both of them want it.
"You've got to really, really want it to have a successful marriage. When I'm in a relationship I'm diligently monogamous and stick to the principles agreed on within that relationship," he said. "You've got to, I think. But it's going to be hard if I go into a monogamous relationship. I live a life where I have a lot of freedom, so if I meet someone and I go, 'Right let's be monogamous,' that's a f**king change. But I tried it and I loved it. I really think she's a lovely beautiful person. It's just hard, isn't it? She's got a lot of options, I've got a lot of options, so you've got to really, really want it."
When asked why it failed, he said, "Some of it's the fame, but I think getting married is - you've got a whole other person that you've got to make as important as you."
Despite the failed marriage, he said he wants to get married eventually.
"I've given over too much of my life to its pursuit. And I've probably harmed other people, by being selfish. And really, I'd like to be married. I'm just not transmitting that frequency of 'Soulmate! Soulmate!' I'm transmitting the frequency of 'Mmm!'"
