Orlando Bloom Gave Up Pirates of the Caribbean 4 for This

Don’t look for Orlando Bloom in the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean 4. The Daily Mail reports that the actor has bowed out of the next installment of the highly profitable swashbuckler series—so that he can spend more time with his girlfriend, Australian model Miranda Kerr.

“Orlando loved the films but thinks it’s time to bow out because they tied up nicely for his character Will Turner,” says a source. “The producers are OK with that because they want to concentrate on the new adventures of Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow.”

Though they’ve yet to make all those wedding rumors a reality, Bloom, 32, and Kerr, 26, are rumored to be taking their relationship to the next level by shopping for houses together. The two reportedly have their eye on a $13 million home in Malibu, California. “

They seem so happy together—a perfect match. You could see Miranda getting all dreamy-eyed when they looked at this house,” a source tells X17 Online. “It was beautiful —right on the beach.”

Sounds nice—and a perfect environment for Miranda to show off her flawless bikini body on a regular basis.

Bloom’s decision to duck out of Pirates 4 is particularly gallant—or foolhardy, take your pick—given the recent robbery from his home. After having $500,000 worth of jewelry filched from him, he could really use the paycheck.
