2013 hasn’t been the best year for love for Orlando Bloom, but despite his amicable divorce from Miranda Kerr, he still believes in true love.
“I’m completely in love with the idea of love,” Orlando revealed in a new interview with Elle for their January issue. “Maybe I’m all misty about it because I’m playing Romeo. But I really, you know, believe in that heart-to-heart connection.”
And we totally have to disagree with this, but according to Orlando, he’s not the smoothest guy on the block — and his pickup lines leave something to be desired.
“To a stranger, I’d just say, ‘This sounds crazy, but would you like to grab a coffee? I want to talk to you,’” Orlando said. “It was occasionally successful. But I definitely got the odd knock-back.”
It’d work on us! Especially in that British accent. Just saying.
Although Orlando’s last great love has officially come to an end, we’ve got a feeling there’s a decent-sized line up of women waiting to be his next. And if all else fails, there are always his fans.
“The other night, I was outside the theater, and this girl said to me, ‘Oh, thank God I didn’t faint. The last time I saw you, I fainted and got 14 stitches,’” Orlando recalled. “She showed me a huge scar on her forehead. I felt terrible.”
