Orlando Bloom and Liv Tyler have been very close friends over the years. Now that they're rumored to be together, many wonder if the two had gotten together in the past. Celeb Dirty Laundry writes:
Seeing Orlando and Liv together now does raise a few questions. I mean if they’ve been close for years then do you think that this is the first time that they’ve crossed the friendship line? Might there have been a hook up or two while Orlando and Miranda were on the outs? Or do you think that this phase of their relationship is completely new and that Orlando’s split simply paved the way for him to land on Liv’s proverbial doorstep?
