Russell Brand appears to be at peace with ex-wife Katy Perry dating John Mayer.
Howard Stern asked the comedian about the couple when he stopped by his Sirius XM radio show on Monday.
“What do you make of your ex-wife dating John Mayer? Doesn't she know that he's a worse womanizer than you?” Stern joked.
“Worse or better, depending on how you view it,” Brand retorted, at which point Stern said, “He's a better womanizer, then.”
Stern teasingly tried to get Brand to say something salacious about Perry, suggesting it would increase ratings for his comedic FX talk show “Brand X with Russell Brand.” But the Brit would not oblige.
“That woman was perfect from top to bottom,” he said.
Regarding Brand’s personal life, “I’m not dating anybody actually, I would like a romance,” he said. “[I’m] not so much playing the field. It’s just going through life, meditating, doing yoga, concentrating on this TV show and trying to find a nice wife.”
