Orlando Bloom Breaks Silence on Miranda Kerr Separation

Orlando Bloom Breaks Silence on Miranda Kerr Separation

Orlando Bloom sits down for an interview with Katie Couric airing on Katie‘s November 1 episode.

The 36-year-old actor talked about his separation from wife Miranda Kerr, as well as his starring role in Broadway’s Romeo and Juliet.

“We love each other. We’re a family. We’re going to be in each others lives for the rest of our lives,” Orlando said. “There’s no question, for the sake of our son and everything else, we’re going to support one another and love each other as parents to Flynn. Life sometimes doesn’t work out exactly as we plan or hope for, but fortunately we’re adults. I’m 36 now, she’s 30 and we’re professionals and we love and care about each other and we most of all love our son.”

Translation: we’re still gonna bang when we see each other, but Miranda wants to try some other flavors as well…

Someone hand that guy an Oscar for the performance he’s putting on here.

Arranged interview, got to know the questions beforehand… wish even a tid of all this was true. Well, the age bit is true!

@Anna: Try flavors? This girl has already had the damn buffet with dessert.

# 5

Uhm, every interview is prearranged. Especially if it involves a sensitive subject. They knew that Katie would handle the questions as the professional that she is, and would be respectful. Her show is a great venue for him to speak out for the first time.
And wow, does he look gorgeous.

Today on Keeping Up With The Kerrdashians: Orlando spouts off bullsh*t he has been rehearsing harder than Romeo. It may sound good while it’s leaving his lips but it has been all planned out since the original contract was signed six years ago.

@Elena:

The timing of this separation is strange. I feel like Orlando is talking about it to promote his play. Why doesn’t he just say it’s private?

# 8

come on just admit it that if there’s one thing you both agreed on and it’s that both of you got bored with each other and want to sleep with other people.. esp since the wife’s famous already after latching on to your fame 6 years ago

He’s been on several shows since the announcement, and never said a word. He makes a simple statement here, revealing no details, and you think that he is using it to promote R&J? That’s a bit if a stretch, don’t you think? Even for you hater conspiracy theorists? Ridiculous. Even for you guys. And that’s saying a lot.

I think it is good that they have put Flynn first and that it was an amicable separation. It is also good that they are not bad mouthing each other or saying negative things. It shows that they have class. It is too bad they have split. They were a beautiful couple and looked happy together.

@@7:

First of all I liked them together, so I’m not a hater. I just think the timing is fishy. It seems like something planned in a PR office.

You think that a announcement as important as a separation was timed for publicity for a play in a limited run? And you don’t find anything wrong with that rationale? Well, OK then.

@Amy: The play and the promo to it was running way before the statement they made about the split. So, please.

It’s shameful but of so typical that you “haters” can’t just RESPECT the fact Orlando & Miranda are doing this in a way that is classy, dignified & most of all in the best interests of Flynn.

You can repeat all your delusional conspiracy theories about contracts, them not being married, Orlando not being Flynn’s father as much as you like but it still doesn’t make ANY of it true. The same with the childish “blind” items you keep posting about Miranda cheating with Bieber & others. No one with any brains believes that nonsense & understands its just BS & sour grapes.

We don’t know the reasons behind their breakup but you “haters” should LISTEN & EXCEPT what Orlando has to say.

He said they still love & care about each other & realize as Flynn parents they will always be in each others lives. It could be simply that they fall in love but over time it turned into a deep friendship instead. That happens in a lot of relationships whether you’re famous or not.

Give them the chance to make the transistion & then move on with their personal lives. Right now Orlando is doing his play & its great that he still gets to see Flynn everyday.

But that will change once his play is over he goes on location for movies & Miranda travels for work. It will change again once they start new relationships & will spend less & less time with each other but more individual time with Flynn.

It seems Orlando might live in NY & become more of a theatre actor.
Miranda could move & live in another city or country, time will tell.

Right now they live near each other so that’s good for Flynn so let them enjoy that instead of being petty & calling it a publicity stunt.

It’s a pity you “haters” couldn’t show as much class as these two.

Just think soon you’ll be so happy when Orlando starts dating his new girlfriend & you’ll no longer have to see Miranda with him anymore other than occassionaly with he’s picking up Flynn. Of course that will be less & less over time as Flynn gets older.

@@haters:
Finally! Someone who see’s it the way I do! I couldn’t have said it better myself, but what I don’t understand is why people feel the need to make up stories about couples like this!?! Why can’t they just accept the fact tat they split and not try and come up with reasons why, because most of the time, they’re wrong.

Publicity stunt, only this. They never divorce, shame.

Because this group of “haters” are obsessed Bloom fans who’ve stalked, bullied & insulting Miranda ever since she starting dating him.

They would come up with delusional conspiracy theories to justify their hatred of her. In reality it was just plain old fashioned jealousy of her simply because she was married to their pretend boyfriend.

Now Orlando & Miranda have sperated & have done it all behind closed doors working out all the details before announcing the breakup.

But these “haters” still can’t let it go because O & M are doing it in a civilized fashion & not fast enough for them. They just can’t seem to grasp
there’s a child involved & that they still love & care about each other.

Instead they would rather them be at each others throats & hurling insults yet they’re supposed to be his “fans” but show no understanding that he would have the best interests of his child at heart.

They’re more concerned with posting BS “blind” items on d grade gossip sites about Miranda instead.

Orlando is protecting Flynn & Miranda as he cares about his family yet they can’t see beyond their own hatred of her to understand that simple fact.

You just proved my point, no understanding what so ever that Orlando & Miranda are putting the best interests of their child first.

Instead it’s a delusional conspiracy theory like a “publicity stunt” because Orlando is not turning his back on his child & remaining friends with Miranda.

Scary!

I hate bloom now, such a fake. Is that why he was cheating on her? love?lol
she’s disgusting and he had 5 years to get rid of her, they deserved each other: fame whoreXterrible actor (so EWWW as legolas! since he quit vegetarianism he became so old), they had a chance together, alone their insecurities will show

if only society was smarter @ 11/01/2013 at 9:45 am

@@haters: yours is the only logical and decent comment here.

After hearing him say this, it makes no sense why you broke up then.

We don’t know WHY they broke up.

All he said was “sometimes things don’t work out the way you want” so it’s still no explanation as he obviously wants to keep it private.

We DO know that it’s amicable & that they still love & respect each other as parents.

It seems maybe their love just turned to a strong friendship.

Just guessing but I think doing this play has really changed him & he’s decided he now wants to be a “theatre” actor & wants to live in New York & have that lifestyle. He said in an interview he loves the whole theatre community feel, the hours & after the play going out with friends for a drink.

Maybe Miranda doesn’t want to live that way & wants something different for herself & Flynn

I think he already has a new relationship.
For the last couple of years he become very sloppy with his clothes & didnt seem to care about his appearance. Now all of a sudden he’s dressing a lot better & taking more care with his grooming indicating he wants to look his best for his new girlfriend.

I also think its strange that he’s VERY happy & giving all these interviews without a care in the world. It’s good that he & Miranda had an amicable separation but something’s just a bit off about his behaviour. I just hope doing this play wasn’t the reason behind the split because when it finishes he may feel different once it’s over & then it’s all too late!

@@16:

Just using logic:

1) They could have waited to announce their separation after the play had finished its run

2) The tickets for this play aren’t selling well

That’s why I thought it might be for publicity, but who knows.

@hate old legolas: You show your insecurities every time under the different nicks on each article about him and his family. So, don’t lie to yourself – you love him, though in a twisted and sick way. You can’t get over your obsession. It’s clinical. As for the “terrible actor” – ROTFL – you really shouldn’t go about things you have no idea about. Get your veggies and meds. It’s time. )))
