A representative for ORLANDO BLOOM has downplayed reports the actor has a new woman in his life after he was spotted on a date with French actress NORA ARNEZEDER.
The British hunk sparked speculation that he had moved on from his marriage split from model Miranda Kerr by enjoying a night out with the Safe House beauty at the Roger Room bar in Los Angeles on Tuesday (28Jan14).
A source told People.com, "Orlando was there just with a girl and not in a group. He knew that there were paparazzi outside so he was being very careful about his behavior with her."
He was also photographed giving Arnezeder a ride on his motorcycle at the end of the night, but Bloom's spokesperson insists there was nothing romantic about the encounter.
The rep says, "(They) are just friends and are not dating."
He reportedly met Arnezeder through mutual friend Elijah Wood, who co-starred with Bloom in the Lord of the Rings trilogy and worked with the European beauty in last year's (13) horror movie, Maniac.
Bloom split from former Victoria's Secret stunner Kerr in October (13) after three years as man and wife. She has since been rumored to have started dating businessman and fellow Australian James Packer.
