Three years after tying the knot, Bloom and Kerr announce they've separated. "Despite this being the end of their marriage, they love, support and respect each other as both parents of their son and as family," reads a joint statement, which follows speculation earlier in the year the pair was headed for a split.
Though his character does not appear in the book, Bloom reprises his role as Legolas for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. "If Pete [Jackson] said, 'Jump,' I'd say, 'How high?'" says the actor "based on my previous experiences with him and my gratitude toward him for giving me my start in life." The film tops the box office three weeks in a row and earns over $600 million worldwide.
