Who said exes can’t be friends?
In a recent interview with Elle UK, Orlando Bloom revealed that he and his ex Katy Perry are still good friends. “We’re friends, it’s good. We’re all grown up,” he said.
The 40-year-old actor continued, “She happens to be someone who is very visible, but I don’t think anybody cares about what I’m up to. Nor should they. It’s between us. It’s better to set an example for kids and show that (breakups) don’t have to be about hate.”
Bloom’s statement mirrors a sentiment that “Chained To The Rhythm” singer put out after they broke up. She tweeted, “You can still be friends & love ur former partners! No one’s a victim or a villain, get a life y’all!”
Aww, these 2 are definitely #ExGoals 🙂
Besides that, Bloom talked about his naked photos. In case you forgot, he was shot paddle-boarding naked while on vacation with Perry last summer.
“It was extremely surprising. I wouldn’t have put myself in that position if I’d thought it would happen… I’ve been photographed a million times in a million ways. I have a good (paparazzi) radar. We’d been completely alone for 5 days. Nothing around us. There was no way anyone could get anything. So I had a moment of feeling free,” he explained.
He jokingly added, “What can I tell you? Note to self: You’re never free. Ha!”
Dating rumours first sparked after Bloom and Perry were spotted together at the 2016 Golden Globes after party. They made their relationship official when they decided to go on a romantic Hawaiian vacation last March. However, the sweet romance didn’t last long. The couple called it quits after a little over a year of dating in late February.
They are no strangers to high-profile relationships. The singer previously married British comedian Russell Brand while the British actor has a son with ex-wife Miranda Kerr.
