Evangeline Lilly and Orlando Bloom attended the New Line Cinema and MGM Pictures screening of their film “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” as hosted by the Cinema Society and Moncler on December 11, 2013 in New York City.
The pair has been attending various premieres of the film both overseas and in the U.S. and drawing some attention to their “closeness,” making many wonder if they are involved romantically in real life as they are in the film…
The British actor and American actress were cast to be romantically involved in the Hobbit production as elves “Legolas” and “Tauriel” and certainly, they are close in age and both stunningly attractive.
Bloom is also estranged from his wife Miranda Kerr, 30, former Victoria’s Secret model, who he recently split from after a three-year marriage, while she sees the late Australian media tycoon Kerry Packer’s son James Packer, who is some sixteen years her senior.
So is Orlando dating Evangeline? There seems to be more credibility in his having some sort of romantic involvement with actress Liv Tyler, who he’s been photographed kissing recently.
But back to the New York screening of “Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” Ms Lilly, 34, wore the most unusual color-blocked navy blue, black and white cowl-necked gown, while costar Orlando, 36, dressed it down, sans necktie, in his dark suit and button-down shirt.
They were joined at the New York screening by costars and other celebs and A-listers including actors Brooke Shields (looking elegant in monochrome black with several strands of white pearls), Patrick Wilson, Jaime Cepero, Scott Adsit, Billy Magnussen and Louisa Krause, models Sophie Sumner, Lindsay Ellingson, Elena Foley, Marcus Schenkenberg (wearing Moncler?), Tyson Ballou and Alex Lundqvist (with wiife Keytt Lundqvist), fashion designer Chris Benz and singer Fred Schneider of band B-52’s.
