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.

But soft! What light through yonder video window breaks?
Why, it's Orlando Bloom, who's starring in the current Broadway revival of William Shakespeare's tragedy Romeo and Juliet.
And while, eight times a week, the swashbuckling star, 36, suffers the pains of love with his Juliet, played by Condola Rashad, Bloom here delivers Romeo's Act II, Scene 2 poetic description of his beloved for the camera of The New York Times.
Behold, then, for all to see and hear: Orlando Bloom as Romeo.
