Katy Perry reveals the one big problem about dating Orlando Bloom

Dating one of Hollywood's hottest men might not be so perfect after all

They say distance makes the heart grow fonder, but not if you’re Katy Perry.

For the “Rise” singer has revealed the one thing she hates about dating Orlando Bloom, 39, is the distance she has to travel to see him.

In an interview with Women’s Wear Daily, the 31-year-old star moaned about the long drive from her luxury home in Los Angeles to her British beau’s Oceanside pad in Malibu.

She said: "My boyfriend lives in Malibu and getting used to that [drive] was like, ‘Are you kidding me? What kind of life is this?'"

Katy — who grew up just a little over an hour away from Malibu, in Santa Barbara — went on to say that once she got used to the long drive to see her man, she found herself making more trips back home.

"There's no pop-over and I never really got used to Malibu 'cause it's halfway to Santa Barbara, so I'm always just going to Santa Barbara then,” she explained.

She added: “I get the whole 'coming to L.A. and living by the beach' thing. But it's really like, it's so far, nobody is going to come see you."

Despite the pop star’s dreaming about a shorter commute, she revealed her and Orlando,39, have found a balance when it comes to making time for each other.

In fact, the Pirates of the Caribbean actor has even accompanied Katy during some of her hometown visits.

"I still spend a lot of time there because I grew up there," she said.

"I grew up in the poorest part of Santa Barbara... actually my boyfriend didn't even believe me and I was like, ‘I'm going to drive you by my house' and you can Google Earth it.”

Katy began dating Orlando after hitting it off at the Golden Globe Awards in January.

Before that she had enjoyed a on/off romance with musician John Mayer and was married to Russell Brand for two years.

The Lord of the Rings hunk — who recently created a media firestorm when he paddleboarded naked during an Italian vacation with Katy — was previously married to Miranda Kerr until they divorced in 2013.

He shares son Flynn, 5, with the Australian model.
