Orlando... possibly taken?
Here's the news - take it with a grain of salt; "News of the World" sounds like a tabloid...:

Orlando Bloom proposes
09:57 BST, Sunday 3rd October 2004 -- by Daniel Kilkelly

Orlando Bloom has proposed to his girlfriend Kate Bosworth, according to the News of the World today.

The Lord of the Rings star has apparently presented Bosworth with a £175,000 engagement ring.

"All you see is diamonds," Bosworth told a friend. "It's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen."

The newspaper claims that Bloom was advised to keep the engagement quiet, to avoid upsetting his female fans. However, the couple are now making plans to marry next year.

A friend told the newspaper, "Kate jumped at Orlando's proposal and accepted in a second. They're making plans for two ceremonies - one in Los Angeles, where Kate is from, and one in Orlando's native England."

The couple met last year when they were both starring in a Gap advert.



So... I looked her up - she was the blonde girl in Blue Crush - a surfer girl! No wonder they hit it off together.

Orlando - it looks like you beat Billy to the punch - unless he's already engaged and just kept quiet about it. *S*

It does sound a bit tabloid-ish. OTOH, does TORn usually post rumors, without at least clarifying the fact that it is indeed a rumor? Well, at any rate, if he does marry her then I am happy for him.

And I really do wonder about Billy. Kinda laying low since ROTK. Been with her for quite some time. Being more public about their relationship. Probably at the point in his life where he might consider settling down. If she really is the one for him I wouldn't think they would wait much longer. But that is only my opinion.

Feeling the same here... come January I think it will be two years since we first saw them together (just after he was Scotland's most eligible bachelor the December before... *G*).

Actually it's all over the web and the papers. Apparently true, and only to be expected.

And Kate, while she surfed for that movie, doesn't care for it and hasn't surfed since.

*looks around*

What? I just like to stay informed...

*toasts to Orlando and Kate's good fortune*

Not that I care much about Mr Bloom's personal life, kudo's to him i'd say...but the Gap advert thing is not correct. He did that commercial with Kate Beckinsale and it wasn't even last year, he did that shortly after LOTR...
How I know all this? ah well you know...me and Orlando have always been buddy buddy...hehehehehe! *here's to you dude!make it a good wedding for us to gush over!*
