Orlando Bloom texted his ex-wife Miranda Kerr to warn her before pictures of him naked paddle boarding hit the Internet.
The 39-year-old actor was on holiday with girlfriend Katy Perry in Italy, and the pair enjoyed a spot of paddle boarding in the sea. While Katy opted for a geometric bandeau bikini, Orlando decided to forgo clothes to be at one with nature, going entirely naked except for a baseball cap and sunglasses.
After the pictures were published by various newspapers, they caused a stir online with fans desperate to catch a glimpse of the uncensored versions.
Now Miranda, who shares five-year-old son Flynn with the actor, has revealed Orlando dropped her a message to warn her prior to the images being released.
“Oh my God, he text me and was like ‘um, I’m really embarrassed, some photos are coming out, just thought I should let you know.’ And I was like, hmmm… right, what were you thinking? Seriously?!” Miranda said during an interview on Australia’s The Kyle and Jackie O radio show on Wednesday.
Miranda then joked with the hosts that she is planning to send her former spouse a pair of swimming shorts or trunks.
“I’m going to send Orlando a pair of both because he, you know, might like either of those,” Miranda, who is an ambassador for Bonds Swim, laughed.
Miranda and Orlando were married for three years before their divorce in 2013. While Orlando’s relationship with Katy appears to be going from strength to strength, Miranda has also found happiness again, and is engaged to Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel.

The model was asked about her fiance’s choice of swimwear on the radio show as well, with host Kyle Sandilands asking if Evan is a fan of “budgie smugglers” – Australian slang for Speedos.
“I’m just going to leave that one,” Miranda answered. “Let’s just say the board shorts fit him better. There’s more space in the board shorts.”
