Russell Brand is taking the high – and very civilized – road when it comes to his divorce from Katy Perry.

The actor/comedian appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Thursday, where he spoke candidly about his split from the singer after just 14 months of marriage.

“There’s obviously been a big change in your life since you were here last. And, how are you doing?” Ellen asked.

“All right, thank you. Because me and Katy got divorced. I still love her as a human being. But, sometimes when you’re in a relationship, I suppose it doesn’t work out, does it? But that doesn’t mean I regret it or anything. I was very happy to be married with her,” he said. “She’s such a beautiful human being and I just have only love and positivity for her.”

Russell said he’s trying to move forward and look back on his relationship with love.

“You can’t absolutely make everything the way you want it to be in life. Sometimes things are just different and then you try to just move with that and try and remain in contact with what is beautiful about yourself and each other with any situation,” he continued. “That is still a person I still consider to be beautiful and I have nothing but positivity for her.”

Since the split, Katy was spotted getting cozy with with Florence and the Machine’s guitarist Robert Ackroyd at the Coachella Festival in April.
