Orlando Bloom flirted with Paula Patton at Vanity Fair's Oscar party.

The 'Lord of the Rings' star, who split from Australian model Miranda Kerr in 2013 after three years of marriage, reportedly couldn't take his eyes off the actress, who split from Robin Thicke last year.

A source said: ''He couldn't keep his eyes off Paula, and she definitely loved the attention. They flirted insanely. He kept telling her how beautiful she looked, and she was obviously eating it up.''

The duo are said to have ignored other guests at the star-studded bash for more than an hour until Zoe Saldana grabbed Paula for a dance.

The insider added to Star magazine: ''Orlando just stared at her intensely as they walked away.''

The British actor - who has also recently been linked to Selena Gomez, Demi Moore and a mystery blonde - was also spotted chatting to his ex-wife, with whom has four-year-old son Flynn, at the party.

The former couple have frequently insisted they are still on very good terms.

The 38-year-old star previously said: ''We're a family and we'll always love each other and we're going to be in each other's lives.

''What [Flynn] reads and knows about when he's a grown up is more important to me than anything. We both love and cherish each other and then our boy so it's great.''
