New York, Jan 16 : American actress Kate Bosworth admits that her split from Orlando Bloom was her 'first big heartbreak'.
The two stars started dating in 2002, but had split four years later.
Now, in an interview with fashion magazine Vogue, she admits that she was heartbroken at the time, and that she regrets that their relationship was too intense for both.
"Orlando and I met when we were kids. Blue Crush hadn't come out. Lord of the Rings hadn't come out. ... He was the first big heartbreak. ... First love: You feel like it's the be-all and end-all. ... To put as little pressure on the relationship you're in is very important. I regret that it was too intense for both of us," The New York Post quoted her, as saying.
However, the 25-year-old actress still manages to be friends with Bloom and is quite proud of the bond she shares with him now.
"The fact that I'm very close with my past relationships is something I pride myself on. My mom is still close to her first husband. It's nice to be able to enjoy someone in a different form," she said.
Kate slammed rumours of suffering from anorexia and said that she lost 12 pounds from stress and attributed it to be dealing with an illness in the family.
"Whenever anything happens that's very painful or stressful, we all lose weight - my mother, my aunt, my grandmother. ... I honestly thought something was wrong with me. ... I was concerned for my health and my fans, the public. I would have said, don't look at this as the standard of some kind of beauty and health. [It was] a very dark time in my life," she said.
When asked about her meeting current beau, model/musician James Rousseau at the Marc Jacobs after-party, she said that initially he did not even know who she was.
"I looked like a mess. I always ask him why he didn't turn and walk away. He had no idea who I was. He said, 'You're an actress? You're not Kate Hudson, are you?' For a little while there he called me 'Miss Hudson' as a joke. [Afterward] we left and sang Dylan songs at Maggie's Pub. Sitting on a bar stool, having a beer. He saw the potential. He wanted to fix me in a little way. And to be quite honest, he did. He was such a ray of light in my life," she said.
