The Lord of the Rings star stunned fans when he confirmed reports he and the Australian beauty, who is the mother of his son Flynn, had split - but he insists they're determined to stay close and support one another.
In a taped interview with US TV personality Katie Couric, which will air on her daily show on Friday, the actor says: "We love each other, we’re a family, we’re gonna be in each other’s lives for the rest of our lives... There’s no question that, you know, for the sake of our son and everything else, we’re going to support one another and love each other as parents to Flynn."
He adds: "Life sometimes doesn’t work out as we plan or as we hope for, but fortunately we’re both adults. I mean, I’m 36 now, she’s 30, and we’re professionals, and we love and care about each other and we most of all love our son."
