Orlando Bloom is finally finding his way after the breakup of his marriage to Miranda Kerr left him feeling “rudderless.”
“After a period of feeling a little rudderless, I feel like I’ve set a course again. I feel like I’m very much at the beginning of something,” Bloom told the UK’s The Times magazine in a story published Sunday.
The 37-year-old British actor and 30-year-old Australian model called it quits last fall after three years of marriage.
But they have remained friends for the sake of their three-year-old son Flynn.
“I’ve said to her, ‘We’re going to be in each other’s lives for the rest of our lives and we have a child, so it’s important to me that we respect each other as we always have and that Flynn feels that and understands that,’” Bloom said in the interview. “There’s a deep love between us.”
Now that he’s a single dad, Bloom is also ready to leave his globetrotting days behind.
“I’ve lived a very nomadic life, which I enjoy,” he told The Times. “But now that I have my son it gets a lot more serious – I want to be in his life and have as much input and influence on his life as I can.”
Bloom added that he’d also like Flynn to be educated in Britain.
“I’d like him to have some experience of living at home – in England,” he said.
Meanwhile, Kerr is having “some fun” being single, and says she wouldn’t rule out having fun with another woman.
The supermodel told British GQ for its May cover, “I appreciate both men and women. I love the female body and truly appreciate the female form.”
