Orlando Bloom And Miranda Kerr's First Priority Remains Son Flynn

The stars were all out in Hollywood last night for the world premiere of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. While the majority of the cast walked the red carpet, it was the newly single Orlando Bloom (Legolas) in one of his first public appearances since his October split from Australian model wife, Miranda Kerr, that received more than his fair share of attention. However, those hoping to hear of a acrimonious split will be left disappointed as the pair maintain that they’re close with Bloom saying that they're a “family and we’ll always love each other and we’re going to be in each other’s lives”. Speaking to E! News at the premiere, Bloom reaffirmed their “very amicable breakup” and that the couple’s focus has and will continue to be their son Flynn, who will be celebrating his third birthday early next month. "What [Flynn] reads and knows about when he's a grown up is more important to me than anything. We both love and cherish each other and then our boy so it's great." The couple, who had been together for six years and married since 2010, announced their split at the end of October. A joint statement at the time 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,” which they continue to demonstrate. This was evident over the weekend when the pair were seen having lunch together with Flynn before Bloom’s matinee performance of Romeo and Juliet, which he’s currently starring in on Broadway. Between the Lord of the Rings trilogy and now The Hobbit trilogy, Bloom has spent the majority of his adult life playing an elf. However, fans of the books will know that Legolas does not make an appearance in the world of Middle Earth until Fellowship of the Ring, so does not feature in The Hobbit. When justifying the introduction of Legolas into the film, director Peter Jackson told Entertainment Weekly, “He's Thranduil's son, and Thranduil is one of the characters in The Hobbit, and because elves are immortal it makes sense Legolas would be part of the sequence in the Woodland Realm." At last night’s premiere, Bloom added: "I was totally surprised at the idea of coming back [for the Hobbit movies]. I was thrilled, but I had no idea I'd get back to Legalos. It was a wonderful time." The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is in cinemas from December 13.
