Orlando Bloom: Fatherhood gave me a ‘new sense of responsibility’
Orlando Bloom got a "new sense of responsibility" when his son was born.
The ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star says becoming a father to Flynn – who he has with ex Miranda Kerr – five years ago has helped make him more compassionate.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, he said: "Being a father, you know, you kind of have a new sense of responsibility. [My] level of compassion has grown."
Meanwhile, Katy Perry – who is dating Orlando – previously opened up about what she has learned from her partner.
She said: "He was a previous award recipient last year, so he knows it better than I. And he’s been a UNICEF ambassador for over 10 years and I’ve only been a few years so he’s kind of shown me some of the ropes. Everyone is a teacher in a relationship, that’s how I see it now. We’ve taught each other a lot …
"You could so easily just live in a bubble and be self-absorbed and make sure that it’s just you, you, you. I have so much shine and spotlight, so it’s nice to take that spotlight and move it to a need that needs it more and UNICEF has really helped me understand that."
Meanwhile, Orlando and Katy have sparked rumours they are engaged after Katy was spotted with a jewel on her wedding finger whilst out in New York City last month.
A source shared at the time: "She (Katy) walked with her left hand leading her, and bent her hand to show off the large sparkler to the cameras. They seemed proud to show off their happiness … Katy’s mood was better than [I] had seen before. Katy was happy and laughing, joking with Orlando and pals as they got into the car. They seemed proud to show off their happiness."
