Russell Brand "Nearly Proposed" To Perry On First Date
It seems he was smitten from the start...
The funnyman, who also recently confessed he had "never been in love" until he met the Teenage Dream singer, claims he was smitten with Perry from the start and that he finds her "fascinating."
Speaking of Katy in an interview with April's Elle magazine, Brand revealed: "I nearly asked her to marry me on our first date. It was like a hit of acid, a wave of confusion, emerging from under the water, a moment of Oh bloody hell, different perception for a moment, extraordinary. And then I thought, I'll give it space and see what happens."
"It's the most normal relationship I've ever had with anybody. She's very spirited, bighearted, innocent, but very, very smart. Someone told me that enlightenment is contingent upon being able to hold opposing views simultaneously. I'm actually attracted to that magnetism and sort of repulsion."
The Arthur actor added: “She's endlessly fascinating...I was at a point in my life where I was ready to behave. I look at it the way I look at most things: One day at a time. I will say it's very, very rewarding and I love her."
While Russell seems completely loved-up with Katy, the Firework hitmaker has admitted that she is obsessed with er, cats.
The 26-year old told More magazine: "I am obsessed with cats. I'm kind of trying to make that cat-lady personality cool. I want it to be chic! Cats are like, 'You have to earn my affection'. And I really associate myself with that."
She added: "People have to earn my affection, but when I give it, it's going to be good. I'm very independent like a cat too, and I do things in my own time. My cats have a feminine way, it's sexy."
