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.

    Discussion was about her current bf not the ‘former’, I think any comparison between Doutzy and Kerr and their relationship is stupid and senseless. Kroes has always been more private.

    pregnant... Says:

    I think Miranda is pregnant. She never denied it. She just said she found it ironic that people would report she was pregnant, and that she was ignoring it. She never said, “No, I’m not pregnant.”, If Miranda is in her first trimester (she probably is) she can’t announce her pregnancy, I know a lot of women who don’t announce they’re pregnant until there second trimester (after twelve weeks) because during the first trimester there is always a strong chance of a miscarriage. Adriana Lima kept denying she was pregnant until she entered her second trimester. It’s all logic.

    More private or just has less spotlight? hmm…

    Denial Says:

    Melbourne, July 11 (ANI): Miranda Kerr has dismissed rumours that she’s pregnant.

    While the supermodel hopes to become a mother one day, the 27-year-old brunette beauty has quashed rumours that she’s carrying fiancee Orlando Bloom’s child right now.

    “The rumours started as soon as soon as it became known we were engaged. We are ignoring them and enjoying this moment,” quoted her as telling the Herald Sun.

    She added: “I have always been very open about wanting to be a mother one day and I’ve always thought Orlando would be a great dad.” (ANI)

    “has quashed rumours that she’s carrying fiancee Orlando Bloom’s child right now”…this is a denial. She could have said she wasn’t going to comment, but this seems a denial to me. If she infact is pregnant, then she played with the press, and it wouldn’t be the first time.

    Since DK doesn’t have JJ on her payroll I’d say she is more private. It’s all logic.

    She probably sold the exclusive of the pregnancy ‘scoop’ to some aussie mags, the ones who seem to care about her.

    @104 Says:

    Where did she dismiss the rumors? Where exactly? If there was no truth to it, she wouldn’t say, “I’m ignoring it”, she would give a straight answer. Women in their first trimester are strongly advised to keep the news to themselves and their significant others, because as I said, the first twelve months is VERY tricky (the most dangerous trimester is the first), and there is ALWAYS a chance of a miscarriage. Adriana Lima and her reps denied that she was pregnant up and down, and all of a sudden she comes out 3 months pregnant.
    And as for the (same person) going on about the “sold the news to Aus press – only ones who care about her” , “JJ payroll”… can you please grow up?? Like seriously?? O_o

    Get a dictionary and look for ‘quash’.

    ‘If there was no truth to it, she wouldn’t say, “I’m ignoring it”, she would give a straight answer.’

    So you think people ignore true stuff? I’ve always ignored lies and fake things, but I don’t think you can say ‘ignoring’ a thing is confirming it…

  11. 111
    @104 Says:

    I don’t agree. The Press is always putting dramatic spins on people’s actual words. The quote they give is what she actually said. If she had explicitly denied being pregnant in her interview, they would have put her actual words in quotes.

    And just think if he got that girl from the play she may have stay in the uk with him?

    @110 Says:

    Well, we are talking about rumors of pregnancy. this is slightly different then discussing ignoring rumors/nasty lies said about you.
    Of course she would ignore rumors she’s pregnant. It’s a special time for her and Orlando… it’s their time. once they have the certainty of their babies health, then they can share.

    @105 Says:

    I guess that when you say that JJ is not on DK’s payroll you mean that nobody comments anything about her if it isn’t to compare her to Miranda Kerr.
    Don’t get me wrong, I think DK is private, but so are Orlando and Miranda.

    He's so hot Says:

    Why not wait and see instead of speculating? If she’s pregnant it will become obvious eventually.

    I know those of you that claim to be his fans and trash Miranda on the internet think it’s fine and that doesn’t mean you aren’t a fan. Ok, maybe. It just means you are a bad fan. One who thinks you know Orlando’s life better than he does. You can try and spin it however you like but no one would want a fan like that behind them. Think about that. Also think about someone writing stuff like that about your sister or daughter.

    It’s time to give it up and accept that they are together and getting married and she makes him happy.

    @119 Says:

    Orlando’s and Miranda’s fame level is on a different scale to Doutzen. Therefore, the attention/privacy/etc differs.
    @101, who says Kroes is more ‘private’? I remember in the 2008 VSFS after party red carpet, she posed kissing her former BF in front of all the hundreds of camera’s, there’s also a bunch of pap pics of her and her boy making out on a beach, and she literally had a whole page in a spread in vogue where she talks all about her BF, as well as posing in a photo shoot with him , plus she went into details about him in a VS valentines day launch, in an interview.
    How’s that more private? She’s flaunted her relationships before.
    the only thing ‘stupid’ is comparing her fame/control of privacy to Orlando and Miranda.

    @120 Says:

    U think orlando or miranda care about what fans can say? are u really so naive to think they care and get worried about ‘bad’ fans as u call them? Please, they don’t give a damn about what people think! They’re too busy living their life!

  23. 123
    @120 Says:

    Thank you!! YES!
    Honestly… just let them be. Is that too much to ask? be happy, smile, live life, stop worrying about two public figures. Because this has a very, very, very small importance in your actual life. So just let Orlando and Miranda be. Because what these two people do with their lives has a small (zero) affect on your own life. So whats the big deal? They’re obviously happy together (and I’m saying this without a blind eye, without biasim, without hate altered vision, without love altered vision.) I’m seeing this for what this is. Two people who are happy. I’m not heightening my opinion, nor pouring biasim. Just observing two human beings. Now, after observing, I move on to the next thing, and worry about my own life

    huh??? Says:

    Common sense on a JJ thread???
    Is this some kind of alternate universe that I’ve stumbled upon???
    Are y’all just messing with me?

    You see, you forgot to apply the hater double standard.
    Trying to use rational thought will get you nowhere.
    Silly person.
