Protective partner Russell Brand
Russell Brand feels more masculine and protective since he embarked on a relationship with singer Katy Perry
Russell Brand claims Katy Perry has brought out his masculine side.
The British funnyman - who was previously famed for his womanising ways - thinks being with his fiancée has given him a new focus and he only ever wants to protect her from harm.
He said: "I'm really in love and happy. It's a dramatic transformation of my former lifestyle. But I wouldn't be doing it if it wasn't making me happy. She's a good mate Katy, a good laugh.
"Since being with Katy, I've got this masculine urge to protect. Whenever there's an earthquake, I jump out of bed, feeling like I have to fight it; ''Ere, stay away from my missus.' "
The animal-loving couple recently adopted a kitten named Krusty together and the 'Get Him to the Greek' star believes caring for the cat is the "perfect training" for having a family.
He added: "That's why we've got a kitten. It's perfect training for having kids.
"It's lovely this kitten but it's got no concept of moderating its conduct. It just climbs all over my head."
