Orlando Bloom Gets A Degree!

Orlando Bloom Gets A Degree!

Orlando Bloom receives an honorary degree from the University of Kent in his hometown of Canterbury, United Kingdom on Tuesday (July 13).

The 33-year-old English actor was joined by his fiancee Miranda Kerr and his mother Sonia Bloom, father Colin Stone, and sister Samantha.

“It’s a really big deal. It’s an exciting day for me,” Orly told the Press Association. “I’m really honored to be back in my home town. I have so many amazing memories of the cathedral and Canterbury. I have lived near the university so it’s like my playground. It’s a huge, huge honor and I feel chuffed, as does my mother – nobody more than my mother.”

This was Orlando‘s first graduation ceremony since missing the graduation at Guildhall School of Music and Drama because he was working on Lord of the Rings at the time.

    You mean that 10 years from now, when he’s divorced, he’ll look back and say to himself “how could I marry a lady that poses like that?”

    She poses like a model. Why do you complain?
    That’s as if you expected a professional cook to make fantastic omelettes at work and disgusting ones at home.

    Yes, that’s exactly what they meant!
    That’s their “logic” for ya!

    “She poses like a model. Why do you complain?”
    Because she looks great, and is included in the family picture.
    They had to think of SOMETHING to complain about.

    I still don’t get it? Can someone explain how this engagement/wedding is suppose to last? I mean when (if) they marry where will they settle down UK or AZ or US? If and when they have kids will it be in the UK or AZ? Will one give up their career to rear the children?… I know they have the money to go where they like but – how many couple from different countries with very busy schedules and lifestyles keep it together – at least past the first 2-3 years?

    He’s really adorable in his cap and he’s aging far better than Brad Pitt…..of course, Pitt is in his 40s, but still…..he looks like a homeless bum these days. I’m proud of Orlando, he’s not in and out of drug rehab like a lot of celebrities and he seems to be very well grounded. Congrats to a guy who deserves it!

    dont shoot me. Says:

    Geez not much sympathy for people with a different viewpoint here.

    I said I tried to like her, it didnt work, and I cant help but feel he’s making a big mistake.

    That said, why is everyone here so riled up at the fact that 1 anonymous poster doesnt worship her. Get a grip.

    Brad Pitt looked awful with that grizzled “old billy-goat” beard, I’ll admit. But have you seen him now that he’s shaved the beard completely off? He looks GREAT again and as hot as ever (well, in my opinion anyway). And you’re right, he IS 46 as compared with Bloom who’s only 33. I used to think Bloom was handsome, but imho he doesn’t look to be aging as well as either Brad Pitt or Johnny Depp. Maybe if he’d shave off the facial scruff too…

    Its funny because there is no pics of miranda with his mum or sister 2 gether. Just that one with the family.

    Funny? Says:

    @Oh ob:

    How is that funny? There are no pictures of Orlando with just his mom or his sister or dad, etc.

    Sexy & adorable couple. Love them both! It’s nice to see them together for such a special occasion.

    @60 Says:

    His mother and father must really HATE him!!!!
    I mean, that’s your reason that there aren’t any pics of Miranda with just his mum or sister, right!!! That they can’t stand her????
    So they either hate Orlando too, or your logic doesn’t hold water. Unless you are a proud hypocrite, and willing to twist your reasoning to fit your agenda.
    Which is it?

    Hmm Says:


    I’m guessing they will live in the US – LA or New York since it would be the best home base for both their careers. Then they’ll have to learn how to compromise and think of each other (and the kids if they have any) in order to make the relationship work … just like us “regular” folks. I do wish them all the best though. They both seem like nice people.

  15. 65
    @64 Says:

    Very true.
    Both of their careers are centered, or can be centered almost anywhere. It’s not like one of them has a nine to five job in Sydney, and the other has a nine to fiver in LA.
    They will work something out.
    They already have three years experience in the art of the compromise.

    always working Says:

    This time it was ALL about him. Not about her. He got something important. HIS family was there. And all of them ( including HIM – an actor, and his sister –actress) managed to look like ordinary people taking ordinary photos for the family album. They were not acting or pretending. They were not doing their jobs. The only person who was working there was Miranda. She was posing like for the magazine. Nothing from her side was spontaneous in any photo. Crossed legs, angled head, posing, posing and posing. Don’t tell me that she is not able or capable to make one ordinary, normal photo with the man of her life and his family. This family photo with her leg behind (like she is making one for panties and bra) is ridiculous. Was she trying to steal the show? It was not the red carpet. She should show some respect for this event and behave NORMAL. I am hardly waiting for their wedding photos. Imagine how big Miranda’s show it is going to be. He will be there too, but who cares.

    @always working:

    I noticed that too, especially the one with the bent leg. Considering she’s such a presswhore, we’re lucky she didn’t show up in a bikini……

    @70 Says:

    No surprise at all. Didn’t you see her pics last year at that hotel opening? She posed with her arms up in the air as she was doing a shoot or about to receive an oscar…so fake and staged.

  23. 73
    @70 Says:

    Yes, it WAS all about him. He was surrounded by loved ones on a very special day.
    And Miranda can’t help that she automatically poses properly. It’s automatic. If she was really ‘working it’, she would have had her hand on her hip and her booty thrust out. She looks like a normal, very pretty young lady here, who just happens to know what to do for a picture. That was an “ordinary” picture for her. Everone does something a little different for a picture. I know that I look better when I keep my chin down a bit, so that’s what I do when being photographed. And if it’s a full length picture, I know to put one foot in front of the other. It just looks more attractive in photographs. Since I know these little hints, does that make me a show off, too? She certainly wasn’t “trying to steal the show”. In every picture, she is standing just a bit behind him.
    And these pictures were NOT just casual photos for the family album. These were taken by news agencies for publication.
    I think that you are just reaching for something to complain about.
    But my favorite was…
    “Imagine how big Miranda’s show it is going to be. He will be there too, but who cares.”
    You just described EVERY wedding in the history of the world!
    A wedding day is technically about both of them, but it IS the bride’s show. You’ve never been to a wedding if you don’t understand that one.

    HUH? Says:

    Miranda looks demure and lovely in these photographs.
    There isn’t a darn thing wrong with any of her pictures.
    IMO, if the other two ladies would have taken a step back, and posed in the same way that Miranda is, it would have been a family picture worth framing. As it is, mum is stading too far in front of him, and Sam just way too far forward, and should have been standing differently. She looks like a lump, when we know that she is more attractive than that.
    Such a shame.

    @70 Says:

    Actually Orlando is posing as well. At least he is when he has his lips slightly open for the picture with David Suchet. I think both of them have been schooled by PR in how to pose for official photos, and they just do it without thinking very much whether it’s strictly appropriate.
