First comes a degree and then comes marriage…if you’re Orlando Bloom.
The British actor tied the knot with his fiancée, supermodel Miranda Kerr, on Wednesday night, CNN has learned.
The media has speculated this congratulatory news was on its way since at least 2008, when a report surfaced that the two were engaged, although Bloom, 33, and Kerr, 27, denied it. They shirked rumors of an engagement again when the Victoria's Secret model was spotted wearing a ring in May, and finally confirmed their engagement in late June.
Bloom, who has been dating Kerr for nearly three years, told reporters last November when queried about the pesky engagement rumors that the two were "enjoying our time together now."
well congrats! She does look great in a bikini http://su.pr/2K7ePi
Miranda Kerr is an Australian model who over the years has worked hard in the industry to make a name for herself and was choosen to become a victoria secret supermodel, she is one of there angels. She is a down to earth gorgeous aussie girl. Stop slagging her and Orlando they have dated for years and in a tough world have managed to fine each other. Congratulations guys hope you have a wonderful life together and Australia loves you both :)
it's all in my name...give it a rest.
stop being haters. they just got married, why can't anyone congratulate them for that? they're about to embark on a journey of marriage and bliss. leave them alone. if you have something negative to say, keep it to yourself.
and to everyone else out there, if you're that worried about what your child sees on tv and elsewhere, then shouldn't it be your job to monitor what they're exposed to?
i don't understand how most of you people on here don't know who orlando bloom and miranda kerr are. i mean seriously. where have you all been? obviously you guys haven't seen pirates of the caribbean or lord of the rings, which were pretty big blcokbusters. as for miranda kerr, i'm sure all of you have seen the victoria secrets ad.
as for the other people who have a problem with models...get a life! i mean seriously, just leave them alone. why do you care about these models? it's their lives, not ours. if you're worried about your kids seeing them, then you should put more of an effort to prevent what they see. i mean seriously. stop complaining. i
Geez peoplem why so hateful? They are two people that have found each other, just like anyone else, they deserve happiness.
Jeeze, people...what a sad, bitter bunch you are. They are both beautiful, accomplished celebrities who have it all. And if all you can do is cut them down because of their success, that demeans YOU, not them. I wish them both all the best and though I don't have a VS body, I've always enjoyed Orlando's movies. When did the average American become so jealous and cruel?
Now that's one STYLISH couple.
Wow, some of you are bitter. Get a life! Congrats to them!
My warmest best wishes and congratulations to Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr! I wish them much love and happiness together. I'm middle aged happily married lady, going on 23 years of marriage. Bravo for Kerr and Bloom!
Special for a chick who doesn't know who she is .... what you wearing – Walmart brand ? Why the hate – he's a good actor who doesn't make waves like LL – she's a model that is not all over the palce like others. Take a chillpill people – Jealousy is big these days
b/t/w – why does he always make me think of musician John Mayer with his own natural dark hair cut short like that?
Geez, I can't believe the hate. They both seem like perfectly nice people, and I haven't read any scandals about either one of them. They'll have some gorgeous kids. This news is nicer than most of the stuff I see these days – that's why I opened this article.
Most people in this country don't realize he's a well trained actor who has on occasion had to actually defend his career of hugely commercial films, as if he was a sellout. So he skipped graduation because he actually got a job before finishing. Many would jump at the chance to do the same. She actually looks like kind of a sweet girl, at least in this picture. He looks like he's happy, "in a good place". I wish them well.
NOOOOOOO! Orlando how could you? Just because she's pregnant is NO reason for a shotgun wedding. Oh Orlando Why!!! And you didn't even invite your "Fellowship" Brothers. You know this isn't going to sit well with them..and what is Viggo going to say???. Hmmm???. I'm heartbroken..I really am * Sulking away "I have now fallen into shadow...."
She needs a pearl necklace to go with those earings
Hey models and actors all need some love – it is the culture of our world that makes them famous. Everyone wants to see how the famous live, love, and of course fail. (Lindsey Lohan) Normal everyday people could not nor want to live the "famous" lifestyle. I 'd like to have the money that comes with fame but would not like to have my private life put out in the public eye for everyone to judge.
I wish this couple the best, lots of love & happiness, lots of money, lots of success! All the envious nay-sayers should just look at themselves at the mirror and with their own hand "pretend" to wipe off their faces the following (1) negativity (2) envy (3) depression. Once they do that, at least 3 times a day every day for a month, they will feel a little better about themselves, their world, and will not be so bitter for some other people's happiness, they will also attract positive supportive people if they become one. It is all inside your heads people. Wise up!
Those sitting at their computer judging these two talented young professionals should be ashamed of themselves. I don't know either of these two personally, but I wish them the best.
I think people who think otherwise are first of all classless, bitter and above all jealous
oh my God so much jealousy! why do you losers go to the entertainment page, click on news about people you apparently never heard off, then complain that she is not a supermodel or why is she a supermodel and you never heard their names, and why is this in the news? Cause first of all you're on the freakin' entertainment section !!!! Second stop hating her cause she's gorgous, tall and skinny and makes tons of money. If you never heard of her its cause you live under a rock and you're probably ugly too since you never heard about fashion or VS.
Because Anna, based on the bulk of comments on CNN, most of those that reply are close minded individuals who have nothing better to do than complain without offering better ideas (that’s across the board on virtually all articles, not just this one). If these CNN readers make up an accurate cross section of Americans, it’s no wonder this country has so many problems. Your comment is spot on.
Couldn't have said things better, Anna and crazycat.
Anna... you rock and are so correct in your observation. I'm almost 60 and I know who Orlando Bloom is, for crying out loud. She is lovely and it's my sincere hope that they will have a very happy marriage.
Yay!!! Anna!! I like him and she is superb and they make a nice couple =) congrats to them!!
Damn. I was ready to post a rant but its Bloom not Orlando Jones.
So that's Orlando Bloom? Heard the name, but never knew what he looks like. Well, best of luck to both!
@HMM,,,will you shut your trap already? that comeback is soo friggin old.
DER DER..don't rear the article then..DER DER.
Grow up, Mike.
It's not a "comeback." It's actual reasoning; perhaps if you tried it you would understand. Instead of attacking others on a forum by telling them to shut up, perhaps you could get some class and learn to respond with some sense. Telling others to get a life on a forum is quite immature; I would say your defense of the comment does the same. People should stop justifying why they waste their time and just admit it already. I already have, but will you?
I didn't need to open my mouth to comment on a CNN board... did you?
Jay-Z was right... you can pay for school but you can't buy CLASS.
Geeeze people. These two didn't just run to Vegas and get hitched after only dating for a month like many do. Those marriages typically fail. They've been together for years. I hope they are happy and that their marriage lasts. You must be pretty miserable yourself if you are wishing that someone elses marriage fails.
By the way, for those that claim these two are nobodys. Hes a VERY successful actor and shes a VERY successful model. Millions of people love them both. Come out of your box.
I think they can make it work.. they typically stay out of the public eye. Although I would have put him with someone like Jessica Biel.. a but more athletic... but hey.. they'll have pretty kids if they can make it last.
So many negative comments... so many jealous people. Happy for them both and here's hoping their marriage lasts :)
I wish them all the best.
Did anyone else notice how Orlando Bloom has a Luke Perry look in that picture?
Wow, so much bile here. This is an article about two pretty people getting married, not a forum for you to vent your anatomical insecurities, so chill out plz k thx.
Not to be a jerk, but you could've done without the last sentence... kinda nerdy.
But I agree with your point completely. It's just two celebrities getting married... people care more about spewing hate towards those they don't even know and shouldn't even care about when the mirror is right there for them to look at if they want to see something worth hating.
Ted you must be buttugly
I find the comments more interesting that the article itself
The conehead hair is too much, Dude, you're 33. Leave the jacked up hair for the kids.
Orlando WHO???? Where's he been since Lord of the Rings and Pirates? Getting older, shorter and coloring his graying hair? Anyone who gives a rat's a$$ about this needs a life.
You cared enough about this article to comment. So, YOU need to get a life.
Your alias says it all !!!
How about ... congrats to the couple. May they have many years of happiness together!
SUPERMODEL: (n) refers to a highly-paid fashion model who usually has a worldwide reputation and often a background in haute couture and commercial modeling.
So when you model for Victoria's Secret, walk the runway for brands such as Levi's, Rock & Republic, Baby Phat, Roberto Cavalli, Neiman Marcus, LAMB and appear in magazines such as Elle, Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Vogue and Harper's Bazaar, earning $3.5 million in 2008, you would be considered a supermodel.
Orlando Bloom's last ten years in the film industry: Three Lord of the Rings films, Black Hawk Down, Three Pirates of the Caribbean films, Troy, Kingdom of Heaven, Elizabethtown giving him ten solid-to-blockbuster films in ten years.
So, now that you have been educated, try using some knowledge, even if it is few and far between.
is she actually that tall or is she just wearing heels?
Are you kidding me? Never heard of her? She's one of THE most known Victoria's Secret Models. Look at their catalogs, ads, anything of theirs and you'll quickly see her. And you don't KNOW her, so how can you say she's superficial or materialistic. Just because someone is a model doesn't make them that way. Don't judge a book by it's cover people, it just makes you look judgemental, jealous and petty. Congratulations to them and I wish them the best.
It seems that the people who make the worse comments are always lacking in self cofidence and esteem so they lash out at people who have atleast done something with their lives. Because the new Mrs. Bloom is a beautiful model doesn't automatically make her a witch or make her unable to have a conversation. People have a way of perceving things in a way that is totally opposite of how it actually is. In regards to Mr. Bloom's honoray degree it is not an insult to people who earned their degree. The majority of the time it is voting on by a student council who they want to select to speak and receive a degree at the ceremony. Plus you don't know if it was awarded to him because of his movie work or charitable works. I wish them well in what ever they do and I hope they have a very happy life together.
I'll bet she gives great head!
Sadly Bill......she won't lower herself to do a pencil dick like yourself !
Why are all these people hating on them.? They are happy and are both beautiful people. I'm dying a little on the inside because Orlando Bloom is my Hollywood crush. But all in all I am happy for them, as other people should be. By the way, not all supermodels are ditsy women with nice shoes. Many of them are incredibly smart, beautiful, entrepenuers, that use modeling as a segway to other things. Again...stop hating.
Congratulations to them and all but UGH another actor marries another model. How boring really. Can any of these actors ever date a regular woman? Or at least one with a career that won't fall apart after she's 35? I admire Matt Damon for marrying a nobody, a bartender from Miami. Now that's something I can get behind. Yes she may not be a doctor but at least that leaves hope for us regular girls lol. Seriously I am so sick and tired of male celebrities only dating fellow actresses and models. It's like a super clique with no hope for regular outsiders to infiltrate, with a few rare exceptions like Matt Damon.
Why marry average when he can marry beautiful. Jealous much.
I was told by tons of sources that he was gay, must be convenience
your hand, the national enquirer, and your fantasies are not good sources of information.
I dont know, that might be a 14 year old boy in drag
Apparently no one here can read.
He had to skip graduation to film LOTR- and so he got a 'honorary' degree in order to be allowed to participate in the graduation experience.
He earned it, he went to school for it- he missed graduation.
THAT IS ALL.
No point in reasoning with the masses. They just don't have very long attention spans.
You remember the Australian investment guy who was caught on live TV looking at a nude photo on his computer? The photo was of Miranda Kerr.
Beautiful couple, wish them well.
Thank you Leila.......I rest my case !
Why such hate for these two? They are in love, married, rich..semi famous...let them be...stop the hate...jeeez...as if their lives somehow influence yours...you do not know these people...do not how their personalities...for shame!
CNN has some of the biggest trolls on here that complain about anything and everything. Pathetic.
His hair looks like one of the worst rugs Ive ever seen even though he isnt bald that I know of.
Good luck – she looks like she may be pretty high maintenance
Wow.....there are a lot of negative, ignorant people in this world ! ...most are right here sending in their comments.
Here are two people, sharing their good news, and all you eejits can do is put them down ?
A sad commentary on your lives. Here's a thought...maybe you should get a life ?!?!
Congrats Orlando and Amanda – wishing you many, many happy years together !!
Um...her name is Miranda, not Amanda.
It must be embarassing for orlando. He's like 2or3 inches shorter than miranda! And what the hell were you thinking with that hair!!
Good for them, hope they're happy!
Wow, I haven't heard of Orlando for years, since PotC 3. His career seems to have stalled out now that Lord of the Rings films are long over and the teen girls have dropped him. Hope he saved his money!
She's considered a super model because you can feel her entire skeletal system
Good one! I really never understood that concept either, why they are called "super" models. They are all the same to me... size 000 and 90 lbs.
I'm not sure so many people don't know both, or at least one, of them. Orlando is a very well-known actor and she is a very well known model. Both of them have been in and out of the news lately–read a little all you ignorant people.
I don't think it is fair to call people ignorant because they may not know who one or both of these people are. Maybe they don't read celebrity style news. Orlando Bloom is a little more hard to believe people don't know, due to some of the movie roles he's been in. But still, it's kind of harsh on your part to call people ignorant. Maybe they don't like to read news as most of it is nothing but bad news for the most part.
I hope they weather the storms of marriage and their careers and the flash of cameras. I wish them the best. Personally speaking, life is hard enuf w/o the added flash. Good to hear something about Orlando, just chanced on this article. He's good eye candy and I enjoy his acting. As for Miranda, it must be tough to keep up the beauty thing, life is hard enuf on the pretty woman, even w/o the "hollywood".
She married him for the degree. Deg-digger!
She looks taller than him. I guess he has to use a stool whenever they wanna go doggy...
For those who have not heard of Miranda. She is a Victoria Secret model, so that means she might have a good body , we all would love to oogle at and envy about. We can assume she has no great qualification but why does she need any degree/education when she can can just strip, put a bra and earn millions of easy money. Of course she will claim this is really a lot of hard work, I have to get up at 10am, put make up and strip and then they make me wait for hours and then finally then I have to pout my lips, expand my chest and take a few pictures. After all this hard work I have to now relax and have a blast at nightclub. By the way Orlando, enjoy it while it lasts. Hope u have prenup, its too late anyway.
I don't really give a crap about the wedding article, but the posts that follow are very entertaining. Keep up the spirited banter, you all.
I've been married for 24 yrs. do you think they care? So I certainly don't give a flying f about them.
Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr – 1, Joie – 0
Supermodel? Who> Never heard of her. There is no such thing as a supermodel anymore thank god!
Ok for those who keep saying oh shes not a super model and that you haven't heard of them and that they are not that good GUESS WHAT?! They wipe they're asses with the money they earned in a week than what you will ever earn in your lives!! Stop hating and just say thank you for entertaining me with some movies and a nice view on the sides of buses....
Daaaaaaammmmmmmnnnnnnnn girl, you FINE.
Their babies are gonna have pretty noses
They will be gorgeous if they do.
Apparently some ladies think Orlando is pretty hot, but he's supremely fortunate to get Miranda Kerr. She is gorgeous and seems pretty genuine for such a beautiful, rich and famous woman. I saw a mini-interview with her in which she was tearing up talking about how lucky she is to have that career and a great family, etc. A down-to-earth super-hottie with heart. Awwww. That lucky elf!
2 nobodies...it's a sloooow news day, huh?
Or, power of the press agent!
He looks better as a blonde. Wonder if the new Mrs. Bloom is related to Deborah Kerr (born in Glasglow, Scotland) the late actress who starred in 'The King and I'?
She's a VS model from Australia, so doubtful. Not that being a Victoria's Secret model negates the possibility. Being from completely different continents might, though.
So What ? ! ? Never heard of her, and he is – at best – a marginally-talented actor.
Whattya say we reserve web space for worthwhile reporting???
Yes, because there is so LITTLE space on the web, heaven forbid we waste any precious few kilobytes with "news" like this! I mean really...compared to 99% of the things on the web, you think THIS is wasting space?
Orlando Bloom is very well known, at least in the US. It is surprising that so many people don't recognize him. The Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy, the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and various other films like Elizabethtown, Troy, Black Hawk Down, etc...
As for the model, as a group Victorias Secret models are world-famous with their annual fashion show on network TV and in ads everywhere. To say I can remember her over any other, maybe not, but she is famous for her job.
As for the stereotyping – people assume because of these individuals jobs that they are worthless as human beings otherwise, why? As another poster mentioned, Orlando Bloom could well deserve the degree he was awarded. As to the model, do you think Victoria's Secret advertises to men and only places women in these clothes as eye-candy? No, there is a legitimate business to women that the ads are based around, and many women actually prefer VS clothing for comfort and longevity as it is a high-end brand - as unrelated as this may seem, it's like saying Apple only makes products for people to go "ooo, he's carrying an Apple laptop" or something – what others think may be a bonus, but it isn't why people buy these products.
wow! ur comment was bigger that the whole article....
I'm not surprised that a lot of people DON'T know him! He's not a household name like say Tom Cruise, Bruce Willis, Tom Hanks, etc. If he was the main star in a film he would not draw large crowds. People went to see the Caribbean Pirate films for Johnny Depp not Orlando Bloom. In Black Hawk Down it's a culmination of Josh Hartnett, Eric Bana, Tom Sizemore, and Ewan McGregor. The movie Elizabethtown flopped at the box office. It didn't make big money. Lord of the Ring films was also a culmination of stars, Elijah Wood, Cate Blanchett, and Sean Astin. Orlando Bloom is NOT a household name.
Honorary degrees are a deep insult to those who have actually worked for degrees.
And you are an insult to society. Judging someone's intellectualism based upon receiving an honorary degree? Do you know anything of Bloom's actual educational accomplishments? Look them up and then learn not to be such an idiot
I agree too!
Got to agree with you there. What is even the purpose of an "honorary degree" if it doesn't merit you a job, career, license, credentials, etc.? It's all just B.S.
Was he married to the attorney?
So she is now Miranda Kerr-Bloom.
She's gonna blow!
lol.. what's really with his hair?
Good for him. But W F T is up with that hair?
*W T F
WFT is the Shakespearean version since he's been in so many period movies.
8 months, tops.
Legalos Greenleaf, why do you give Gimly so must headache?
I give it 3 years tops.
Good for him; Legalos Greenleaf! Darn good actor and a favorite of mine in Lord of the Rings.
What is up with his hair and who told him it looked good? If it was her I can tell him he can't trust her!
He is trying to look taller.
All of his gay fans are going to be so disappointed.
Just because he got married doesn't mean he's NOT gay. Rock Hudson married. Cary Grant married 5 times. It's used as a cover all the time.
Why is she a supermodel? Does the average person know who the hell she is?
Uhh yea, she is a victoria secret model...don't get out often do you?
Never heard of her. They should only be called super-models if theirs are household names.
dd in cali: Are you playing in the underwear again?
If you know anything about fashion...you know. She is beautiful and he is a good actor. Don't comment if you don't care or know. LOSERS.
What's the difference between a model and a "super model?"
yes the average person knows who she is. If you don;t know her why would you go read about her in the first place?
@evoc she is a victories secrets model, that would be called panties and thongs :p
What does a degree have to do with it??
The article has a hyperlink for the degree... he recently obtained a degree! Beeeyotch
He received an honorary degree from the University of Kent a few weeks ago. Not really related to his marriage, but just some more interesting Orlando Bloom news.
Its only an 'honorary' degree, not a real degree from earning it.
Instead of writing a short blurb about it in the article, the moron who wrote the story wants you to open up a new link and read another article, which itself is probably partially incomprehensible unless you click yet another link .. ad infinitum.
The names sound familiar, but I have no idea who these people are. Why is this considered news?
then why are you read and commenting on it?
'Cause it's in the ENTERTAINMENT section.
One has to read the article first, to conclude it lacks newsworthy info.
Exactly who the hell are these people!!!!!
Blake, do you live in a shoe box? The world may not know Miranda, but you should know who Orlando Bloom is. Especially since he was in 6 of the most popular movies in the last 10 years. I'm surprised you even know how to work your computer!!
How does anyone not know who these people are? They're both super famous, and she's super hot. You really must be a shut in if you don't know both of these celebs.
Hey Becca...maybe Blake actually enjoys the outdoors and doesn't sit home in front of the TV or waste 10 dollars going and seeing a movie...maybe you should stop being ignorant
I got a bugger in my nose don't cha know...bop bop
His nose will grow, but he will become even shorter. Why is any ol' model called a supermodel?
Never heard of her, nor have I seen her before.
Theyr'e taking the hobbits to Issengard ! ! !
You're 100% right...it's getting harder and harder to instill confidence in teenage girls when these women wearing almost nothing in their photoshopped pictures are shoved in their faces every day and made to believe that that's the ideal...
@I wanna girl..just like the girl..that married dear old dad .... Oedipus complex anyone???? besides, do you know this girl? how can you say all these things about her? looks like you have some issues.
Super Model.....a term born from ego, nothing more, nothing less. Nice try with the "Common Sense" definition though. Its from ego....because there's other models of course...then someone came along and after they made more money than other models said oh no you need more attention you aren't just a one of those "poor struggling models" you are a "Super Model!".......what other profession does this? When lawyers start out they don't all make the big bucks, when they gain experience and open their own law firm making millions do they go "I'm a super lawyer now!".....Doctors...doctors don't make massive salaries fresh from getting their degree....(depends what speciality you are) ....as they progress in their career , you know SAVING LIVES, do they go "I'm a SUPER doctor now!"....um..no....face it we are hard pressed to find a more egotistical "career path" as a model....sorry SUPER model *rolls eyes*
So Legolas finally gets a girl. Glad to hear he is not gay.
He is 5'11" and she is 5'9".
I'm glad they got married. Ugly people need to stop hooking up and procreating.
lot of jealouse people on today, hahahaha, who cares what you think, what you like, and what you do or don't agree with. If you don't like your stupid kids seeing this stuff, then stop buying your stupid kids the magazines, and get rid of cable, don't make the rest of us suffer because your a judgemental idiot!
Congrats Orlando and Miranda! Much love and happiness to you both!
The term "super model" came about approximately in the 80's when you were either a print model (magazines) OR a runway model. Being in both just never happened. One year, clothing manufactures starting using the print models on the runway to make their advertisements come to life. That's where "Super Model" came from..not that they're super in any other way...but that they were both in print and on the runway. Now you know!
