Orlando Bloom is still in love.
The British actor, 36, has opened up about his recent split from the Australian supermodel, with whom he has a two-year-old son Flynn, for the first time, and says he will always support her.
He told Katie Couric on her self-titled ABC talk show in a new episode that will air later today (01.11.13): “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 that, you know, for the sake of our son and everything else, we’re going to support one another and love each other as parents to Flynn.”
The star admits his marriage didn’t work out the way he hoped. He said: “You know, life sometimes doesn’t work out exactly as we plan or hope for, but fortunately, we’re both adults, and we’re professionals, and we love and care about each other. And we, most of all, love our son.”
The former couple enjoyed a stroll with their son in Central Park in New York the day after announcing their split last Friday (24.10.13).
The duo, who wed in July 2010, reportedly split up six months ago but only decided to announce it after Orlando gushed about his chemistry with his co-star Condola Rashad in the new Broadway production of Romeo and Juliet. He said: “We sometimes get applause after our first kiss because it just goes on. Sometimes I’m like, ‘I’m not letting go.’ “
