Russell Brand is up for being mates with ex-wife Katy Perry again - although she might be slightly reluctant considering he dropped her a text to say he was divorcing her four years ago.

The 42-year-old comedian and popstar married in October 2010, before separating just14 months later - but Brand hopes the pair can put their "trivial personal disputes" behind them.

"Oh yeah, I hope so," he told Grazia, when asked whether they could ever become friends in the future.

"I'm willing and open for reconciliation, any kind. Because if we can't overcome our relatively trivial personal disputes in this world, what hope is there for us?"

Brand also disclosed that he doesn't regret marrying 32-year-old Perry, and reflected on their relationship as "a very important and lovely time in my life".

"I don't regret being married to Katy at all," he continued. "I have very positive feelings about that whole experience and Katy is an extraordinary woman."

He then added that he was keeping the Sanskrit tattoo both he and Perry had inked on their arms, which translates as "Go with the flow".

Brand recently married designer and blogger Laura Gallacher - sister to Sky Sports presenter Kirsty Gallacher - and the couple welcomed their first child together Mabel 10 months ago.

On the importance of marriage and monogamy, he added: "It's funny because marriage is such an external thing but I do think it's good and it matters."

Meanwhile, Perry admitted during a revealing interview with Vogue in 2013 that Brand "texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011" and hadn't heard from him since.

On the reason behind their break up, she added cryptically "I felt a lot of responsibility for it ending, but then I found out the real truth, which I can't necessarily disclose because I keep it locked in my safe for a rainy day.

"I let go and I was like: This isn't because of me; this is beyond me. So I have moved on from that."
