The funnyman gave his first interview Wednesday on Howard Stern's radio show, and although he was there to promote his new show Brand X, the questions quickly turned into Divorce Speculation 101. However, Russell kept his cool and had nothing but nice things to say about Katy and their short-lived marriage. "I loved her so much, it just seemed like the right thing to do [when we got married]," he explains. "I just loved her so much."
"It was a lovely relationship... it mostly didn't work out for practical reasons," he continues. "We did work it out. She's happy, I'm happy." He adds, "She's a good person, I've got nothing but love for her. I was very proud of everything she did." Russell also referred to Katy as "successful and dedicated" and admitted that "she's young and she's beautiful and she's sensitive and I care about her deeply."
Howard also made sure to stay in the present rather than just focusing on the past, and of course had to question Russell's new rumored relationship with Isabella Brewster. "Some things in the newspapers aren't true," Russell says. "That's true, actually."
I am so impressed at Russell's super classy interview and it's so admirable that he is able to open up so much while staying so calm about a touchy subject. So great to see that he and Katy are both doing well and seem to have a mutual love and respect for one another!
How do you think Russell handled his first post-divorce interview?!
