Supermodel mama Miranda Kerr and her husband Orlando Bloom make their marriage work because they have a huge amount of respect for each other. Miranda opens up to Cosmopolitan’s November issue about working hard and being in awe of her husband.
Miranda says she would never try to run lines with Orlando, “Flynn says Mommy works and Daddy plays, because Daddy is in a play…so that makes sense. When I saw Orlando on Broadway in Romeo and Juliet, I was blown away. For someone to be able to learn all that and hold the energy to do it every day, six days a week – I have so much respect for him. We don’t run lines though. We keep that very separate. That would be like me asking him to teach me how to catwalk.”
The former Victoria’s Secret model shares that she’s a hard worker and loves to problem solve. “I’m a lot stronger than people think. I started my own company, invested my own money in it, and have been involved in every facet. I’m that person who says, no matter what the problem is, there’s a solution. That’s the way my brain is wired. If someone says to me, ‘Well, that’s not possible. It can’t happen,’ I say, ‘Yes it is. I’m going to sit here and show you that it can.’ I can take no for an answer and accept it – but if there’s a solution and I can make it work, why wouldn’t I?”
Miranda says being independent is fine, but being girlie is okay, too. “Don’t feel like you have to do and be everything. Let the man do some things for you, because if he cares for you, he will want to. When I get home, I’m not the boss like I am at work – I slip into a more feminine role. I take everything off and put on my Stella McCartney silk robe. I’ll put on a red lip or red nails, and it lifts my mood. Sexy underwear also gives you a spark. I collect underwear from my travels. Lace, lingerie, bodysuits…they’re like souvenirs.”
