In Pursuit Of Perry
Orlando Bloom locked onto Katy Perry just minutes after her arrival at the Weinstein Company’s Golden Globes afterparty in Beverly Hills on Jan. 10. The actor was flirting with actress Rooney Mara at the soiree, until he saw Perry join movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s corner table, which was surrounded by bodyguards and black rope. Bloom, who was sipping Fiji water (which sponsored the event), made a beeline for the VIP enclosure and soon was exchanging digits with the “Firework” singer and puffing on her vapor cigarette. When Perry headed for the exit, the pop star — who was photographed with intermittent beau John Mayer on New Year’s Eve — kept looking back to make sure Bloom was following. He was.
