Russell Brand
is opening up from his split from Katy Perry after 14 months of marriage -- and he's got a surprisingly positive outlook on the whole divorce.

"I still love her as a human being," Brand tells Ellen DeGeneres in a new interview airing today.  "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.  She’ s such a beautiful human being and I just have only love and positivity for her."
Both Russell and Katy have been spotted with new love interests since the split, with Perry most recently being linked to a Florence + the Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd.

"You can’t absolutely make everything the way you want it to be in life," Brand adds. "Sometimes things are just different and then you have to just move with that and try and remain in contact with what is beautiful about yourself and each other with any situation."
Russell's closing words about Katy, "Just remain beautiful. That is still a person I still consider to be beautiful and I have nothing but positivity for her."

If only all Hollywood splits could be so amicable!
