Scoop: Liv Tyler, Orlando Bloom more than friends?

Are Liv Tyler and Orlando Bloom an item?

The two starred in “The Lord of the Rings” films and have been friends “for years,” a source at Star says, but now it looks like they have taken their relationship to another level.

The pair took in a play in New York this week and then got all lovey-dovey at a party afterwards.

“They were playful and tickling,” says the source, “gazing into each other’s eyes and holding hands.” Bloom recently split from his wife, Miranda Kerr, and Tyler split from her ex-hubby back in 2008.

Tyler once told Tatler Magazine that she falls in love “once in a blue moon,” so perhaps the planets are aligned for her again. Then again, it’s not every day you meet someone who also speaks Elvish.
