When asked if he and Miranda are still friends after they split, the 'Lord of the Rings' star says that they are not friends, adding, 'We're family.'
Orlando Bloom said that he and Miranda Kerr would remain a family although they decided to split. The actor, who is currently starring on Broadway play "Romeo and Juliet", was spotted stepping out of his apartment in New York on Friday, October 26. Sporting casual clothing which consisted of jacket, pants and cap, the 36-year-old actor held a script as he walked to a waiting car.
A TMZ photographer, who was waiting for the "Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End" star, talked to the actor, asking if he and Miranda would stay friends after the split. "We're family, not friends. We're family," Orlando said. When asked if there was any specific reason for the separation, he answered, "It's all...in the statement, really, it's all there." As Orlando entered the car, he apparently said, "Life's a mystery, things don't always work out the way you want, but it's all good."
Just a few hours after the news of the split broke out, Orlando appeared on "Live! with Kelly and Michael" to promote "Romeo and Juliet". "We sometimes get applause after our first kiss because it just goes on. Sometimes I'm like, 'I'm not letting go,' " he said of kissing co-star Condola Rashad in the play.
On Thursday, a representative for Orlando said in a statement to E! News that the actor and his wife had split. "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 read.
"Despite this being the end of their marriage, they love, support, and respect each other as both parents of their son and as family," the statement continued. The couple got married in 2010 and they have a 2-year-old son together.
