Orlando Bloom talks divorce.
Bloom spoke with Miranda Kerr for CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood who touched base on the reason the couple separated. Bloom struggled for an answer and said, "You know, that’s a very hard question to answer – and really it’s one that time will tell,” Bloom tells Braver. “But when you have two people who are incredibly busy and who are both – very visible in the world – I think it can be challenging to keep that, that schedule and that kind of life in the same track, you know." Bloom said dealing with the split from Kerr, a Victoria’s Secret model, has been "very challenging" in many ways. "You know, I love Miranda and she loves me. We both adore and love our son. We both recognize and realize that we’re going to be in each other’s lives for the rest of our lives, raising our son."
For the full interview and to hear what Bloom says about working on the Broadway debut of "Romeo and Juliet," watch November 10 on the CBS Television Network.
