Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom dealt with their split “openly and honestly”.
The married couple announced they had broken up in October, with Orlando later insisting he will always view Miranda as family as they have two-year-old son Flynn together.
The Australian model has now opened up about the split, explaining she and her estranged husband are doing everything they can to maintain a friendly relationship.
“It’s difficult for anyone to go through a separation, whether it’s on a public scale or not. It was important for us long-term to preserve our friendship and the dynamic of being loving parents to Flynn so we dealt with everything openly and honestly,” she told the Australian edition of Harper’s Bazaar magazine.
The pair began dating in 2007 and announced their engagement in June 2010, marrying the following month. Miranda has a lot of time for her estranged husband and hopes to keep him in her life no matter what.
“We respect each other and with respect comes understanding. When there’s understanding, I guess everything is a little more harmonious,” she explained.
“We’re still very big parts of each other’s lives. There’s no reason for us to be anything but a united front. We still love and care for each other deeply.
“Flynn is the most important thing in both our lives. And because we share that bond, we both feel it’s important to be united.”
Miranda stars in a sexy photo shoot to accompany the interview, appearing topless in one image and in a low-cut tuxedo on the cover.
The star also discussed her Christmas plans, revealing she won’t be travelling Down Under to see her family this year. As Orlando is appearing in a version of Romeo & Juliet on Broadway she wanted her son to be able to see his father over the festive season.
“I’m not coming home to Australia for summer because Orlando is working six days a week starring in Romeo and Juliet on Broadway,” she said, “And it’s not fair to take Flynn and go without him. We’re trying to do our best to support each other.”
Miranda has been linked to Australian millionaire James Packer following the marriage breakdown, while Orlando is rumored to be enjoying a flirtation with Liv Tyler.
