In recent months, the amicable exes were linked to friends and former couple Erica Packer and James Packer, respectively, though the actor and the model are denying romance rumors. "I've known Erica since I was 19 back in London," 37-year-old Orlando told Australia's Daily Telegraph. "I've known Erica before she was married to James, when she was married to James and afterwards, and we are all mates."
Still, he realizes that appearances can be deceiving.
As Orlando explained, "It probably looks odd, but we are all mates. We have known each other for a long time." Asked point blank if he's been dating Erica, the star of The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies laughed and replied, "No. I've known Erica for a long time. We are great mates. She is a great girl."
