Orlando Bloom & Noomi Rapace are allegedly falling in love: good couple?


When we close the gossip books on 2014, will we say that it’s been a good year for Orlando Bloom? No. We won’t. Orlando and Miranda Kerr split in the fall of 2013 (after widespread rumors of her repeated infidelity and months of separation). Then Orlando spent much of 2014 living the shadow of Miranda’s new life as a single lady, where she literally had wealthy Aussies fighting over her in the street. Orly also had to deal with Miranda’s past, and the widely reported stories that she hooked with Justin Bieber… when she and Orly were still together. Over the summer, the Bieber thing came to a head when Orly and Biebs were in the same Ibiza nightclub and Orly threw a punch after Bieber reportedly complimented him on Miranda’s… bedside manner, shall we say. Bieber then spent days trolling Orlando on social media. The whole thing was pretty embarrassing.

What’s my point? Orlando kind of looks like a loser these days. I hate to incur the wrath of the Orly-loonies, but there it is. So maybe this is good news? Star Magazine says Orly might have found a new lady… Swedish actress Noomi Rapace!

Lord of the flings no more! Orlando Bloom has a new woman in his life and pals think this romance could be the one that finally sticks. Orlando, 37, has been in Prague shooting his upcomign thriller, ‘Unlocked’, and set sources say he’s become extremely smitten with his costar Noomi Rapace.

“Orlando and Noomi have been spending a lot of time together, both on and off set,” dishes an insider. “There’s real chemistry between them. He finds her fascinating and they have cozy meals together that last for hours.”

Noomi, 34, is also planning a move to London, which is where Orlando currently resides. “Their relationship is still new and they aren’t exclusive yet… but this could be the start of something big. He thinks she’s very special.”

We know Noomi. Noomi is awesome. She’s a great actress, she’s tough, she’s cool, she’s weird and funny. She’s tight with Tom Hardy. She parties with Michael Fassbender. Why would SHE go for Orly? Sigh… I can’t say I’m happy about this one because I kind of think she could do better. But if she likes him and he likes her, God bless. God knows, he could use someone like Noomi in his life.

    The hot is gone.

  2. David says:

    She is awesome!

    • Liv says:

      Good job, Orlando! Instead of opting for a young starlet or singer he chose Noomi or he probably was lucky that she chose him! Well played.

  3. Alexi says:

    He needs a haircut. He looks like a 50 year old lady.

  4. Renee says:

    I no very little of her and have not seen any of her work but it seems that he could benefit from the companionship of an age-appropriate, uh, grounded woman who does not seem to have her head up her *ss.

  5. Bridget says:

    Wow, the pretty is LONG gone from Orlando. Time has not been good to him.

  6. QQ says:

    … well…..at…. least .. is Age Appropriate??… maybe?? cause… why would she need this mess…ugh his hair is so so bad

  7. scout says:

    I loved her in Swedish version of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” movies, great actress. I don’t think he is a good match for her but good luck.

    • M.A.F. says:

      Swedish version? That is the original. Let’s treat it as such.

      • minime says:

        yeps..the real, original ones! She was incredibly good in those!! And sincerely if an American rip off was so needed, they could at least have gotten a good actress to play the part.

  8. Tateru says:

    If your year includes this…
    …then you had a good year.
    All hail Legolas!!

  9. don't kill me i'm french says:

    She deserves better

  10. Dani L. says:

    Eh, I’m not buying it. Isn’t this the 6th woman he’s been rumored to be romantically linked to this year alone? Besides, Star Mag is a notorious pile of crap. Take everything they publish with a grain of salt. Well, a huge pile of salt. They claim Jennifer Aniston is pregnant every other week.

    • TeaAndSympathy says:

      Not only that, but it appears (if this story has any truth to it) that this is yet another “co-star romance”. They do not have a good track record. Wishing them the very best, but this does not bode well.

  11. Snowangel says:

    Does anyone think Orly looks like Dr Oz? I think I have been watching too much daytime tv. But with a haircut I think he would be gorgeous again, looks kind of shaggy.

  12. Skins says:

    Wasn’t he supposed to be a good looking guy? What happened?

    • I Choose Me says:

      He still is imo. But people get older ya know. Admittedly the hair is doing him no favors.

    • RandomSpirit says:

      Too much sun. He’s starting to get Mel Gibson skin. I don’t know if he drinks or not. I loved him 10 years ago. He was such a cutie.

  13. Narak says:

    I like them as a couple and hope it works, he’s sexy, not as hot as her, but I like his hair and his lack of “shine”. He should hang out with what’s his real name Darryle from Walking Dead. A little rough edge never killed anyone.

  14. Sea Dragon says:

    If it’s true they’re together I hope it’s just a PR set up.

  15. Lurker says:


  16. Hazel says:

    There was a time this guy was so pretty.

  17. Gwen says:

    Well, he seems a lot nice than her ex so good for Naomi and what an upgrade for Orly. I like it.

    • RandomSpirit says:

      Who is her ex? Details?

      She seems a lot nicer than *his* ex too. I am trying soooo hard not to slut-shame Miranda because BIEBER – eww!

      • Gwen says:

        Ola Rapace, Swedish actor who’s very full of himself and who allegedly could be very rough with her at times.

  18. serena says:

    Oh come on, poor Orly! I like Noomi a lot, and even though I don’t think she’s perfect for him and viceversa, they could work. I mean, who knows, right? He had a few bad years following his split with Miranda, but I think he still got it.. give him a chance. Maybe with the right woman, he’ll drop the douchery badge.

  19. Dree says:

    I don’t buy that. She is way to talented and cool for him. She is a fantastic actress, capable of real transformative performances. He is an ageing teen heartthrob who fights with bieber and hangs with selena gomez.
    This would be the weirdest couple ever.

    • Malificent says:

      They are about the same age, and are both divorced with young kids. She’s the better actor, but I think personality counts for a lot more than talent if you want to see someone off of the movie set.

      By all accounts, he’s a nice guy — so I’m gonna cut him some slack for his injudicious partying and assume that it was an effect and not a cause of his divorce. I don’t think having a lost weekend (or a lost year) after very public marital problems is freakishly unreasonable. We all go off the rails sometimes when we are under stress — it’s more of a matter of if and when we decide to get it out of our system.

      • Dee says:

        agree 100% with what Malificent said!
        BTW how is he the loser in the split??? Miranda is the one who everyone is mocking and getting called out for her trashiness, her popularity has plunged! One the other hand Orlando is getting great reviews in the movie Zulu, and is doing some interesting projects again, I am not a Orly loon but IMO he has always been a better actor than some people give him credit for, he was good in Kingdom of Heaven, Ned Kelley, The good Doctor, and Haven. I think he is doing fine, I think he and Noomi are a case of opposites attract, she is kind of punk rock, and he is kind of hippyish, but it could still work if they can relate to each other in other ways. I think they are an interesting match that will be fun to watch, couples that are too alike are boring IMO.

    • RandomSprit says:

      I think it’s an actor crush wish fulfillment thing for her. He was hot once, even if it was 10 years ago.

      I *used* to get why Miranda was so frustrated with him, when was the last time he had a real job? However, her cheating and with Bieber made me lose all sympathy. Even those two stupid millionaires fighting over her deserve better than her, Orlando does too but maybe not someone who will end up supporting him – again.

      @Dree at least he is younger than Johnny Depp (not in looks but in age). Now THAT is a pathetic old dude.

      • TeaAndSympathy says:

        The two rich Australian guys – one a millionaire who is happily married, and the other a billionaire, who was pursuing MK, have been best friends for yonks. Neither David Gyngell nor James Packer ever confirmed what led to the very public punch-up, but it was widely speculated at the time that David (happily married) put his two cents worth in about his very best mate James getting involved with MK, whom, it is suspected, David has no time for. James evidently took great offence at David’s interference, hence the punching-on. So, it appears it wasn’t that David wanted to poach MK from James. Rather, he just didn’t want his best mate lining himself up for more heartbreak (and MK drama!), given his romantic history.

  20. St says:

    He did not aged well. Looks awful.

  21. Dotty says:

    He’s going to look like Mr Burns in a few years. Squished face defined by nose.

  22. Bread and Circuses says:

    How awesome does Noomi look? Holy crap. Her skin is flawless.

  23. mike says:

    He never looks attractive w/o the facial hair. He needs that moustache and a sprinkle of beard. One of those guys. Weirdly enough, facial hair gives his face structure and makes him look significantly younger and sexier. It has always been that for him. Pirates etc.

    Google Orlando Bloom + Magnum and you’ll see what I’m talking about. Few guys look better than that. He needs that light Lord Byron effect.

    Oh, and he can do much better than that woman, who happens to be one of the least attractive women working in movies today. And that says something, because there are almost no attractive women left in Hollywood. Orlando looks to be a cuckold, but hey some women are into that sort of thing.

  24. RandomSprit says:

    I was soooo in actor love with him 10 years ago but as my friend who was also in mad actor love with him 10 years ago said “Orly was so hot when he was our age but not that he is older than we are – ewww” For the record, my friend and he are the same age, I am a little older but he does look older than myself or any of my friends born in the 70s – male or female.

    Totally lost the hot.

    I like Noomi too and I think she can do better. I hope this is just a mad actor crush 10 years ago wish fullfilment fling for her.

    PS: This is a good photo of him, I saw one from the LA Premiere of the Hobbit where he was starting to get Mel Gibson skin,

    PPS: When was the last time he had a real job? Not one where he was cast because Peter Jackson needed extra material to make the Hobbit a 3 part series?

    PPPS: I wish he’s hit Beiber

    PPPPS: even though he’s lost the hot, he deserves better than Miranda – it’s super gross that she slept with Beiber. He’s so horrid. He is no One Direction (not my thing but I was a 10 year old girl once, I know my hot teen boys).

  25. TOPgirl says:

    Miranda Kerr took all the life out of Him! Them fame whores usually do.

  26. Ravensdaughter says:

    He was hot for awhile, but now he’s not.
