Russell Brand brushes off divorce woes

British comedian Russell Brand is refusing to dwell on his failed marriage to pop star Katy Perry because he finds it "meaningless" to hold on to anything "negative".

The Forgetting Sarah Marshall star, an avid yoga fan, filed for divorce in December (11) and Brand reveals he's at peace with his decision to end his 14-month union.

He tells People.com, "I'm doing well... You don't need to brush it off if you don't get it on you in the first place.

"I don't have to let anything go. I don't hold on to anything negative. It's the same as zero-ness. It's not about letting it go. You can't let go of something you don't hold, you know. It's meaningless... And I don't do that anymore."

The actor has since been linked to Hungarian model Nikolett Barabas, while Perry is said to have moved on to date French model Baptiste Giabiconi.
