Brand's fans were stunned to hear he was settling down and turning his back on his Lothario reputation. However, Perry is adamant she hasn't forced Brand into responsibility - insisting he "doesn't have the stamina" to keep bedding a string of women.
"He knows that I'm young and have friends and a social life, and he was attracted to me," the Daily Express quoted Perry as telling the Guardian. "Not, Oh let's find a version of myself in a female. Every once in a while I need to remind him of that and he listens. It's all about communication. It's not about taming, because that won't last."
"Everyone gets saggy t*ts. Not everything stays perfect. We all start to slow down. I think he was ready for change. I mean you just don't have the stamina to be in bed with 80 different women a week when you're 35 and trying to do good work. One of the things that attracted me to him is his brain. He's one of the smartest men I've met. I feel smarter just standing next to him," she added.
