Following this morning's official announcement that Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr are separating after six years together and three years of marriage, the Romeo and Juliet star hit the circuit to talk about his epically romantic play.

The British actor, 36, appeared Friday on Live with Kelly and Michael and, never discussing the breakup of his marriage, very passionately described what it's like to kiss his Juliet, Condola Rashad, eight times a week in the Shakespearean tale of star-crossed lovers.

"We sometimes get applause after our first kiss because it just goes on. Sometimes I'm like, I'm not letting go," Bloom told Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan, as noted by the New York Post.

And, the compliments, it appears, have been going both ways.



Earlier this month, Rashad, 26, told Newsday about establishing stage chemistry with her handsome Broadway costar: "What's funny is that we didn't have to force it. We had a connection from the minute we met ... a sense of comfort with each other. Which was cool. We both loved the work. And he's such a great guy."



Rashad further gushed about Bloom to Broadway.com last month, saying, "He's a heartthrob, that one!"

She also reiterated that their chemistry was immediate, "so we didn't have to work too hard at it. We hang out sometimes afterward, but we've built the relationship we have just by being around each other. ... We have a lot of fun and trust between the two of us."
