Pop star Katy Perry and her former boyfriend, English actor Orlando Bloom, appear to have reconciled as they shared an audience with Pope Francis Saturday in Vatican City.
Orlando Bloom is letting the world know about the strength of his feelings for Katy Perry.
In a new interview with UK newspaper The Times, the 41-year-old opened up about his relationship with Perry, 33, amid news that the pair are dating again.
“She’s a remarkable human being, actually,” Bloom told The Times, adding that since he’s “a little older” than Perry, he wasn’t “overly familiar with her artistic endeavours when we met.”
“I wouldn’t have imagined anything happening. And, you know, when you get hit sideways you get hit sideways,” he continued. “You don’t pick who you fall in love with.”
Bloom also went on to praise their “really remarkable connection” before commenting on how difficult it is to maintain a relationship with their conflicting schedules.
“She’s on tour, I’m doing a play, everything evolves,” he said. On May 18, Bloom will kick off a three month run in the West End revival of Tracy Letts’ play Killer Joe.
“I have a lot of respect for her and a lot of deep feeling. So we will see,” he added.
