Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom announced their divorce in October, though they’d apparently been separated for months before that. And while they both seem to be honky dory in their new single lives, that doesn’t mean they don’t still love each other. In fact, they really, really do.
As Miranda explained to Harper’s Bazaar Australia:
“It’s difficult for anyone to go through a separation, whether it’s on a public scale or not.
“We still love and care for each other deeply. Flynn [our 2-year-old son] is the most important thing in both our lives. And because we share that bond, we both feel that it’s important to be united.”
“We respect each other and with respect comes understanding. When there’s understanding, I guess everything is a little more harmonious.”
Well, it’s good to see that these two are working things out like mature adults. It’s better not only for them, but for their kid. When adults get nasty upon splitting, it can really fuck kids up. Not to mention it’s just not a great situation to be around for anyone.

Orlando Bloom has a very zen attitude towards his separation from wife/Gwyneth Paltrow crush Miranda Kerr. He stopped by Katie Couric‘s show, Katie, to talk about it. Because if there’s one thing the people are clamoring to know about, it’s how Orlando Bloom deals with heartache, am I right? Via USA Today:
We love each other. We’re a family. We’re going to be in each other’s lives for the rest of our lives. 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.
Okay but for real, is Orlando Bloom morphing into Dr. Oz?:
Bloom is currently starring in the first ever interracial production of Romeo and Juliet, on Broadway. Check out the lulzy poster.

Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom have been married for nearly four years (and together nearly seven) and even have an almost 3-year-old old son, Flynn, together. There have been rumours for a while now that the pair were having relationship trouble, but now they’ve made it official: they’re ending their marriage. Boo! They released a joint statement to E! News:
“In a joint statement, Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr have announced that they have been amicably separated for the past few months. After six years together, they have recently decided to formalize their separation.”
The statement continued, “Despite this being the end of their marriage, they love, support and respect each other as both parents of their son and as family.”
Well, that’s a shame, but that’s Hollywood. It seems they all break up at one point or another. But here, let’s pontificate on this: how weird must it be to be a celebrity when you end your relationship and realise that you need to ISSUE A STATEMENT telling the ENTIRE WORLD that you’re no longer together? Like, it weirds me out that that’s a thing.

4Orlando Bloom And Condola Rashad To Star In First Interracial Broadway Production Of Romeo And Juliet
Orlando Bloom (still exists!!!) and Condola Rashad are set to star in Broadway’s first ever interracial production of Romeo and Juliet. Weren’t Romeo and Juliet teenagers? I guess they’re changing that up too.
What is this poster? Is this not the worst and cheesiest bit of Photoshop you’ve ever seen?
Here’s some info about the play, directly from Playbill:
The revival will begin previews Aug. 24 towards a Sept. 19 opening.
According to producers, “In this new production, the members of the Montague household will be white, and the blood relatives of the Capulet family will be black. While race defines the family lineages, the original cause of the ‘ancient quarrel’, passed down by successive generations to their young, has been lost to time. Shakespeare’s dramatization of the original poem sets the two young lovers in a context of prejudice, authoritarian parents, and a never ending cycle of ‘revenge.’ Against this background, the strength of their love changes the world.”Producers have also announced that 100 tickets per performance will be set aside at $20 for purchase by students and educators.
Tickets for Audience Rewards members go on sale beginning April 1 at noon. They will go on sale to the general public on April 8 via Ticketmaster.com.
Seriously though, that poster. Come on.

From Celebrity Fix:
Both Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom have been spotted without their wedding rings, sparking rumours their marriage is in trouble.
29-year-old Miranda was snapped without hers in New York last week, and a friend of the couple told Famous magazine that their relationship could be on the rocks.
“[Miranda and Orlando's marriage] might be in trouble,” they said.
“She’s not wearing her ring, and she’s had a lot on her plate — it could be that somewhere along the way her relationship with Orlando may have slipped between the cracks,” said the friend.
But Miranda’s new rep, Annie Kelly, has denied the claims. “There is absolutely no truth in the headline or story,” she said.
First, these days, I don’t even know why these celebrities’ reps decide to issue statements. It’s like, you either are or you aren’t splitting up, but one thing is for certain—reps lie. They constantly tell tall tales for the sake of damage control and kids, and they’re absolutely, indubitably not to be trusted.
Second? This wouldn’t surprise me at all. When Orlando started dating Miranda after his long-term relationship with the relatively-down-to-earth Kate Bosworth, I was kind of surprised. Miranda was, of course, a Victoria’s Secret model with enough glamorous pamper-my-ass baggage to sink a ship, and I didn’t think Orlando really got down with high-maintenance chicks like that (but what the hell do I know). Yeah, they built a sweet little family, but Miranda‘s always running her pretentious little mouth as to how people should live, and honestly, is starting to come across a little bit like our favorite good-living guru, Gwyneth Paltrow.
I’m hearing lately that she’s always talking about “natural” childbirth, “natural” living, “natural” gardening, “natural” everything, and while there’s nothing wrong with that whatsoever, it’s all in the way you’re perceived, and word on the street is that Miranda can be a condescending, judgey little bitch who acts all entitled to everything wonderful and pure and clean and non-pedestrian.
I wonder what’s up with all of this, huh?
