Bloom blames careers for split?

Orlando Bloom has hinted that work got in the way of his marriage to Miranda Kerr.

The British actor and the Australian model - who have a two-year-old son together - recently revealed that they had called time on their marriage after three years but didn't go into details about their split.

But Lord Of The Rings star Orlando has now suggested that the fact they are both in the public eye and have jam-packed schedules might have been partly to blame, reported E! News.

He told Rita Braver on her US show: "You know, when you have two people who are incredibly busy and who are both very visible in the world, I think it can be challenging to keep that, that schedule and that kind of life in the same track, you know?"

The 36-year-old also admitted it has been "challenging".

"You know, I love Miranda and she loves me. We both adore and love our son. We both recognise and realise that we're going to be in each other's lives for the rest of our lives, raising our son," he said.

Orlando started dating Miranda, 30, in 2007. They tied the knot in 2010 and had son Flynn in January 2011.

They confirmed the end of their marriage last month, saying: "In a joint statement, Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr have announced that they have been amicably separated for the past few months. After six years together, they have recently decided to formalise their separation. Despite this being the end of their marriage, they love, support and respect each other as both parents of their son and as family."
