Orlando Bloom had to go about his day, one way or another.
The British actor was spotted leaving his TriBeCa apartment today, just hours after reps for him and Miranda Kerrconfirmed exclusively to E! News that they had separated after three years of marriage. They had been a couple since 2007.
Bloom is currently starring on Broadway opposite Condola Rashad in Romeo and Juliet—and the show was going on as usual tonight at the Richard Rogers Theatre.
He and Kerr are parents to 2 1/2-year-old son Flynn and, minus an appearance all together on Oct. 7, he and his model wife had been spending a lot of time apart, with Flynn out with only one or the other in most photos.
TMZ caught up with Bloom on his way out in NYC and the actor, a script tucked under his arm and a baseball cap tucked over his head, said that "it's all...in the statement, really, it's all there," when asked if there was any particular reason for the split.
Also asked if he and Kerr are still friends, the Three Musketeers star said, "We're family, not friends. We're family."
As he got into a waiting car, he added what sounded like, "Life's a mystery, things don't always work out the way you want, but it's all good."
Bloom and Kerr's reps said in a joint statement last night: "After six years together, they have recently decided to formalize their separation. Despite this being the end of their marriage, they love, support and respect each other as both parents of their son and as family."
Earlier Thursday, Bloom taped what turned out to be this morning's episode of Live! With Kelly and Michael and he happened to dish on the more romantic aspects of his current gig.
"We sometimes get applause after our first kiss because it just goes on," he said, referring to the universal language spoken in Shakespeare's classic. "Sometimes I'm like, 'I'm not letting go.'"
"I feel so fortunate to be doing [Romeo and Juliet]," he added. "I mean, it's a monster of a play, a wonderful play, but it was really one of those things where my mom was like so, so you decided to climb Everest on the first trip out the gate? That was your thinking, without oxygen."
