Australian Victoria’s Secret model Miranda and Legolas began dating in 2007, with Kerr initially reluctant to enter into a relationship with an actor. Orlando had also just come off a high profile relationship with actress Kate Bosworth. In a 2001 Austrailian TV Interview Kerr credited Bloom’s persistence as the reason she decided to give the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star a chance, saying, ‘I was reluctant - not about him, but the idea of that (him being a movie star)... I think it was his persistence (that won me over). Maybe he wanted me because he thought he couldn't have me'. The public was long kept in the dark about the two hotties relationship though, until April the next year,  when they made their first public appearance together. The pair chose a day out to the Sydney races in Miranda's native Australia to let the world in on their secret romance.
