Orlando ‘still believes in love’

Orlando Bloom

Orlando Bloom is “completely in love with the idea of love”.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star separated from his supermodel wife Miranda Kerr, 30, in October after three years of marriage.

But despite his recent heartache, the 36-year-old remains upbeat about romance.

“I’m completely in love with the idea of love. Maybe I’m all misty about it because I’m playing Romeo. But I really believe in, you know, that sort of heart-to-heart connection,” he told the January issue of Elle magazine.

The thespian has just completed a stint as Romeo in the Broadway revival of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

And with major roles in films including The Lord of the Rings and Pirates of the Caribbean franchises, Orlando admits it can make women think he’s the complete package.

“I’m sure I was a great disappointment to many women because I wasn’t Errol Flynn. I’m me. I think that’s got some merit,” he added.

Orlando had to film his first full-frontal nude scenes for his upcoming crime film Zulu.

The Hollywood hunk admits he found the whole experience thoroughly entertaining.

“It was quite amusing walking around set and seeing the crew avert their eyes at first,” he laughed. “I got so comfortable with it I could brush up behind someone and go, ‘Oh, excuse me.’”
