Miranda Kerr: “I Have So Much Respect” For Orlando Bloom, Let Him “Do Some Things” for Me at Home

Miranda Kerr definitely knows when to be the boss and when to let husband Orlando Bloom take charge. The former Victoria's Secret Angel (Kerr and the lingerie brand parted ways in April) opened up to the November issue of Cosmopolitan and explained that though she founded and manages her own company, she takes on a "more feminine role" at home with Bloom.

"Don't feel like you have to do and be everything," she advises women in the issue. "Let the man do some things for you, because if he cares for you, he will want to. When I get home, I'm not the boss like I am at work — I slip into a more feminine role. I take everything off and put on my Stella McCartney silk robe."

"I'll put on a red lip or red nails, and it lifts my mood," she continues. "Sexy underwear also gives you a spark. I collect underwear from my travels. Lace, lingerie, bodysuits…they're like souvenirs."

The model stuns on the cover of the issue in a crisp white zip-up crop top and white skirt that shows off her enviable abs.

Kerr, 30, also explains that part of what makes her relationship with Bloom, 36, work, is that the pair are each other's biggest supporters — a concept that she makes sure son Flynn, 2, understands.

"Flynn says Mommy works and Daddy plays, because Daddy is in a play…so that makes sense," she says. "When I saw Orlando on Broadway in Romeo and Juliet, I was blown away. For someone to be able to learn all that and hold the energy to do it every day, six days a week — I have so much respect for him."

"We don't run lines though," she clarifies. "We keep that every separate. That would be like me asking him to teach me how to catwalk."
