Orlando Bloom skipped the after party for his movie's premiere to attend his Broadway co-star's birthday.
The newly single actor, who announced his split from Australian supermodel, Miranda Kerr, after three years of marriage in October, attended the red carpet screening of 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' in New York City alone on Wednesday night (12.11.13), and reportedly seemed "twitchy" while hanging out with his co-stars and actor Stephen Fry before rushing over to help his 'Romeo & Juliet' co-star, Condola Rashad, celebrate her 27th birthday at the James Hotel's club, Jimmy, with her parents.
An eyewitness told the New York Post's Page Six that the duo seemed to be very aware that all eyes were on them.
The source said: "There's been a lot of speculation about them dating, but they made sure to keep a friendly distance."
The British actor, who has a two-year-old son, Flynn, with Miranda, appears to be enjoying his new single status as he joined Leonardo DiCaprio to party with a group of "insanely hot" models in the city on Tuesday night (12.10.13).
The 36-year-old star recently insisted he would "always love" Miranda because of their son.
He explained: "We're a family and we'll always love each other and we're going to be in each other's lives."
Miranda has been romantically linked to her long-time friend, Australian billionaire James Packer, in recent weeks.
