Russell Brand Doing 'Quite Well' After Split From Katy Perry

Funnyman shows no signs of sadness post-breakup when asked about how he's holding up.

If Russell Brand is feeling down about his split from pop star Katy Perry, he wasn't showing it to reporters this weekend.

Brand was out promoting his upcoming FX TV series, "Strangely Uplifting," when he was asked how he was holding up after filing for divorce in December. According to People, Brand told them, "Quite well, thank you. Are you asking because of recent events? You are making the mistake of seeing time as linear. The brilliant American author Kurt Vonnegut, he'll tell you that if you imagine reality as experienced simultaneously, events become redundant."

Brand went even further, replying, "Yes, I am," when asked if he was happy.

"Strangely Uplifting," which premieres this spring, will be a personal project for Brand, centering on him discussing current events in front of an intimate audience.

Promoting projects is sure to keep Brand in the public eye through a solid chunk of 2012. In addition to "Uplifting," Brand will also throw his support behind "Rock of Ages," the big-screen version of the Broadway musical, which co-stars Alec Baldwin, Tom Cruise and Julianne Hough and opens June 1.

Perry also seemed to be getting on with things, making her first public appearance since the split this week while filming a new Adidas commercial just days after she canceled a scheduled appearance at the People's Choice Awards.

The reasons behind the couple's split are still only speculative, but sources told TMZ that there was tension due to Perry's strict religious beliefs while the Daily Mail reported that recovering drug addict Brand was not fond of some of Perry's friends.
