Helen Mirren Wants Katy Perry and Russell Brand To Get Back Together

If you didn’t already know, Helen Mirren is friends with Russell Brand, and it turns out, she’s rooting for he and Katy Perry to eventually work things out.

Mirren says that “it’s very hard” to keep a marriage alive, especially a high-profile one.

“It’s very hard to keep things going,” Helen told In Touch magazine. “Maybe they’ll come back together again later on in life! They’re both very, very successful.”

If Katy’s overzealous Christian parents have anything to say about it, that’s not gonna happen. Apparently, they want her to marry NFL star Tim Tebow.

“Katy’s mentioned on more than one occasion how much she likes Tim,” a source told the New York Daily Post.

"Katy's mom firmly believes the best cure for heartache is to quickly fall in love again. In her mind, Tebow is the perfect guy for her daughter. He's handsome, charming, intelligent and above all, a good Christian."

Right, because Katy’s music is just chock-full of Christian values:

“There’s a stranger in my bed…Think I kissed but I forgot…Then had a ménage-a-trois.”

Hallelujah, praise Jesus!

Russell filed for divorce form Katy back in December, and there’s been various speculation over what led to the deterioration of their marriage. One explanation is that Brand isn’t a Christian and kept making jokes about the family’s religion.

Last year, Katy revealed: "Russell has made very blasphemous jokes in the past, but he's making fewer all the time because he knows that I am very sensitive about this subject."
