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.”

    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.

  • Amy


    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?

  • mia

    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

  • @7

    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.

  • Andrea

    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.

  • Amy


    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.

  • @11

    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.

  • Me

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

  • @haters

    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.

  • Scorch

    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.

  • OMG

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

  • @15

    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.

  • @16

    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.


  • hate old legolas

    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

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

  • ok

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

  • @21

    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

  • Mmmm

    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!

  • Amy


    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.

  • IDLTrolls

    @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. )))

  • @24

    Why wait until January? That’s just ridiculous. And he has been doing promo shows since the play began. What’s you excuse for that?
    You are pretending that you liked them together, but only a hater could be this irrational.

  • Anon

    What’s with the rumours regarding Orlando and Condola Rashad? How did those start? Orlando is very handsome and loved seeing him on the Colbert Report. Has anyone watched him on Katie yet? It is good that he and Miranda are putting Flynn first and that their split was amicable. Can’t wait to see Zulu and The Hobbit.

  • otis

    @Anon: Planted by Miranda to throw him under the bus and to distract from her cheating rumors with di Caprio and the Bieber. She is in a long term relationship, I feel for her being dragged into this mess.

  • otis

    Yeah right now it´s amicable, hope it stays like this as the divorce process continues and they have to negotiate custody, child and spousal support.

  • Amy

    The ENTIRE audience got tickets to Romeo and Juliet. Ticket sales for this show are in the crapper and they re just trying to fill seats any way they can. Also, isn’t it funny that the affection between them hasn’t changed. It has always looked forced and, at times, almost painful, despite everyone telling us how “loved up” they are. They were “loved up” on the red carpet of the play’s opening night and they were already done but they looked the same as they have for six years. There was even a big write up on a blog by a “body language expert” who used one of the R&J red carpet photos to explain how their body language means they are more in love than ever when they were already separated. If they are so good at faking it and they don’t look any different than they have at any other point in their relationship it is safe to say that, from the beginning, they have been faking it. This relationship has been, from it’s origins, fake. It was a vehicle to make her famous and him…well…so that no one knows he’s bent. They are “amiable” now because this was designed to end. She just threw a monkey wrench into the works when she decided to milk it and went out and got herself knocked up. Lucky for her she was smart enough to choose a man with brown eyes so that fangirls would be able to point to them and swear he is the spitting image of the man who gave up his last name. They would have ended in 2010 but instead had to look like a loving couple for a reasonable amount of time. I guess they decided that three years was reasonable.

  • dee

    I think it is hilarious that the Delphi loons are still complaining, even though they have broken up. I bet when Orlando starts seeing someone else THAT person will be the next object of hater obsession, it’s just a matter of time. I wonder if their crazy bitterness will ever end? I am amused at the thought of them as elderly loons still obsessed with Orlando’s love life. LOL.

    Not to feed the trolls but, I am glad that they are working on being respectful & amicable to each other for the sake of Flynn, it shows a lot of maturity, though I do think they had broken up several months ago, and have had time to get over any bitterness and to work toward a friendship for the sake of Flynn. I think Orlando wanted this separation more than she did. I also think they never would have married if it wasn’t for Flynn’s sake. I am not a hater, but the fact that she was 10wks pregnant at the time of the quick marriage alludes me to that belief. Sometimes when people separate, they discover they are better suited to be just friends rather than lovers, no matter how attractive they may find the other person. I wish them both well.

  • Sam

    Why does these celebs feel they have to address their personal lives to the public. It’s your damn business Orlando, keep it private.

  • @34

    Celebs live a lot of their lives in the public eye. In situations like this they almost have to announce the split. Better to get it over with, on their own terms, than everyone making assumptions and spreading salacious gossip. They haven’t revealed any private information at all, just giving their feelings in general.

  • Sam

    @@34: #35

    They don’t need to explain anything to the public of why they broke-up. It is their business. All they have to say is, “we broke-up”, and that is all. No other comment is necessary.

    You dolt. Katie’s entire audience got tickets to Romeo and Juliet. They have to give tickets away in hopes that people actually turn up for the performance because no one is going. You are a fecking idiot.

  • @33

    How do you know that the pregnancy wasn’t planned all along???
    He always wanted children & he was in love. Using the excuse that she somehow trapped him sounds like a Delphi delusional conspiracy theory.

    I don’t think for ONE second that Orlando felt obligated to marry Miranda in any way shape or form. In this day & age there is no need, plenty of Hollywood couples have children & are not married, look at Brad & Angelina.

    At the time he was beyond happy & so in love when he talked about Miranda & baby Flynn. You could see the utter joy & love on his face when he appeared on the Ellen Show that it was genuine happiness.

    I think it’s more to do with them becoming friends rather than staying lovers.

    Why can’t people just except the fact people fall out of love but can still be friends. Orlando & Miranda are BOTH positive people & mabe just realized rather than stay together & end becoming resentful it was better to separate & remain friends for Flynn’s sake.

  • @36

    That’s really all they have said.
    They never gave a reason, just said that they would continue to support each other.

  • @37

    Oprah does stuff like that all the time. I don’t see why you think that Katie doing it is so unusual.
    And looking at the available tickets, it seems that most of the high priced, orchestra seats are selling quite well. For several years now, with a few exceptions, non-musicals have struggled on Broadway. Even one of your members pointed out that a plays with “bigger stars than Orlando” have had trouble selling tickets, and have closed early. Just ask Scarlett Johansen, she knows all about that. Are you going to hurl the same insults at her? no. I didn’t think so. That’s because you are a “fecking” hypocrite.

  • @40

    It was the uber idiot herself, Callie, who said “I just know that better, more successful runs have ended early… “.
    So how can they continue to claim that low box office is something unheard of before Orlando’s Romeo? And how can they still claim that he is at fault, even when he has received GREAT reviews?
    You see, this is one (of the too numerous to mention) reasons that make these idiots the laughing stocks of the net. If they would just stick to the facts, and stop being such OUTRAGEOUS hypocrites, then maybe people wouldn’t treat them so poorly. But they are just incapable of doing either one of those things, so we will just have to keep laughing at them. And pointing, of course. Always pointing…and laughing. LOL!

    But now I’m more interested in what happens next for Miranda. I think she’s a great mum to Flynn as he’s such a sweet happy child.
