Are Orlando Bloom and Liv Tyler dating now that Bloom is divorced from Miranda Kerr? It would make sense, since the two worked closely with one another for the years while they filmed The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Though Bloom and Kerr shared little screentime in the Peter Jackson films, they both played gorgeous elves!
Star magazine claimed that the two actors are dating after they were spotted spending together backstage at a performance of Samuel Beckett's Waiting For Godot at Broadway's Court Theater on Nov. 24. "When they got behind closed doors, they were playfully tickling, gazing into each other's eyes and holding hands," the source said.
The source went on to report that Kerr and Bloom also attended the after-party at Bryant Park Grill, where Tyler looked stunning in a beautiful black evening dress. But a rep for Tyler denied the rumors: "Not true. They have been dear friends for many years."
Even though Tyler is not in The Hobbit series with Bloom, the two Lord of the Rings actors definitely look good together off screen.
Bloom's ex-wife, Kerr, has also reportedly sparked up a new relationship of her own with billionaire businessman James Packer. Packer supposedly gave Kerr some business advice a couple of years ago when the model started her own line of beauty products.
But neither Bloom nor Kerr seem concerned about one another's new relationship prospects. The former lovers are said to be "doing great" in the wake of their divorce. It's good to know things have stayed civil considering that the two share a son, Flynn.
Bloom's new movie, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, comes out in theaters Dec. 13.
