Russell Brand is fairly zen about his divorce from Katy Perry.

In an interview with the Lorraine show on the UK’s ITV1 while doing publicity rounds for Rock of Ages, the British funnyman offered up a rather sanguine view.

“Well, it did work out in a way because you are married for some time, and that’s really good, and then you’re not married, and that’s really good,” he said.

Right??!? Profound yet simple. Best spin on a divorce ever!

The 37-year-old Brand and the 27-year-old Perry swapped vows in October 2010 in a lavish ceremony in India only to see their marriage unravel in 14 months.

While divorce is never easy, he’s come to terms with it.

“You just have to have acceptance of things. She is a person I love, but now this is a new time. I suppose divorce is difficult, isn’t it, because of the admin! There’s a lot of admin!”

Seriously. On a different level of love, Brand gushed over … Alec Baldwin.

“He’s like sort of a big powerful, hairy, sexy uncle,” he said of his Rock of Ages co-star. “Which in the wrong circumstances could be a terrible thing.”

“But in the circumstances that I found myself in, it was really lovely. He’s really friendly, and he’s really clever, and really sweet and gave me wonderful advice.”

Random, hilarious bromance alert?
