In mid-2009, Brand met American singer Katy Perry while filming a cameo for his film Get Him to the Greek, albeit the part was deleted from the finished product.
They started dating after reuniting in September at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.
On New Year’s Eve 2009, while on vacation in India, the two were engaged, and on October 23, 2010, they married in a Hindu ceremony near the Ranthambhore tiger sanctuary in Rajasthan.
After watching the documentary “Forks Over Knives,” which analyzes how plant-based diets can reduce risks for cardiovascular disease and other chronic illnesses, Brand and Perry announced on Twitter in October 2011 that they had turned to a vegan diet.
