(Newser) – Chris Rock mostly focused on his career during a new, extensive interview with the Guardian, but he also mentioned a bit about how he feels in the wake of his divorce last year from his wife of nearly two decades. "I’m doing OK. You know, some days are better than others, some days you’re sad outta your fucking mind. But my daughters are good and I’m only an hour away. Two houses close by. It’s good," he says. Asked if joking so much onstage about the down side of marriage had an impact on his relationship, he laughs, "Hey, I'm getting divorced now," but says he'll still use his personal relationships as fodder for his comedy: "Oh, totally! You learn more from failure than success, right?"
