Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry want their break-up to remind people that splits “don’t have to be about hate”.

Katy, 32, split from Lord of the Rings star Orlando in March after just over a year together, with their representatives saying in a statement at the time: “Before rumours or falsifications get out of hand we can confirm that Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time.”

Orlando, 40, has now spoken about the end of the romance for the first time in an interview with Britain’s Elle magazine, telling the publication the former couple are still on very good terms.

“We’re friends. It’s good. We’re all grown up,” he said. “She happens to be someone who is very visible, but I don’t think anybody cares about what I’m up to. Nor should they. It’s between us. It’s better to set an example for kids and show that (break-ups) don’t have to be about hate.”

Orlando’s comments appear to echo Katy’s tweet following the duo’s split, when she encouraged people to adopt “a new way of thinking for 2017.”

“U can still b (sic) friends & love ur former partners! No one’s a victim or a villain, get a life y’all!” she wrote on Twitter.

Also in his interview with Elle, Orlando said he regrets paddle boarding naked during his summer, 2016 vacation with then-girlfriend Katy Perry.

The well-endowed Lord of the Rings star let it all hang out during his August trip to Italy, wearing just a baseball cap and sunglasses for his day at the beach, and now he admits had he known the paparazzi had uncovered the couple’s location, he would have covered up.

“It was extremely surprising; I wouldn’t have put myself in that position if I’d thought it would happen,” Orlando told Elle UK.

“I’ve been photographed a million times in a million different ways. I have a good radar. We’d been completely alone for five days. Nothing around us. There was no way anyone could get anything. So I had a moment of feeling free... What can I tell you? Note to self: you’re never free!”

Bloom was so mortified when he realized he’d been snapped in his birthday suit he texted his ex-wife Miranda Kerr to warn her before the pictures hit the Internet.

The Australian model, who is mum to Orlando’s son Flynn, said, “He texted me and was like, ‘Um, I’m really embarrassed, some photos are coming out, just thought I should let you know’. And I was like, ‘Hmmm... right, what were you thinking? Seriously?”

Miranda joked she was planning to send her ex a pair of shorts or swimming trunks during an appearance on Australia’s The Kyle and Jackie O radio show: “I’m going to send Orlando a pair of both because he, you know, might like either of those.”
