When asked when he was happiest, Bloom answered: “When I was about to embark on filming The Lord Of The Rings, prior to any kind of fame or notoriety, full of hope and dreams, and excitement of the adventures ahead.”
Bloom did eventually mention Perry again when asked about the greatest loves of his love.
He listed them as: “My son, Flynn, and my daughter, Daisy Dove, a dog called Mighty and then, of course, my fiancee.”
The actor, 44, was the target of much social media mockery after revealing his daily routine.
Bloom revealed he wakes at 6.30am each day and immediately checks the app that monitors his sleep quality. From there, he ingests a concoction of green powders that he mixes with “brain octane oil, a collagen powder for my hair and nails, and some protein”.
After that mix, Bloom takes off on a hike while listening “to Nirvana and Stone Temple Pilots” before returning to his six-bedroom, 12-bathroom mansion for his proper breakfast – porridge with “hazelnut milk, goji berries, vanilla paste”, among other things. Describing himself as “90 per cent plant-based,” Bloom said: “I sometimes look at a cow and think, that’s the most beautiful thing ever.”
As for lunch, he said he cooks occasionally but otherwise “there’s a team of people” to handle all that.
Work-wise, Bloom explains he has a production deal with Amazon and has been spending his days looking for “roles for myself and others – for minorities and women. I’m trying to be a voice for everybody”.
A practising Buddhist since he was 16, Bloom also spends some of his day chanting and reading “a bit of Buddhism and then I’ll type it up and add it to my (Instagram) Stories”. Despite this, he says he resists using his phone.
“I don’t want to be sucked into the black hole of social media,” Bloom explained.
He also makes time in his day to build Lego – “I dip in and out while I work” – and does an hour of heavy weights to “exhaust” himself.
It’s all, as Bloom himself admits, “quite LA, really”.
Unsurprisingly, the response was merciless – probably a good thing Bloom avoids social media.
Can’t stop thinking about how Orlando Bloom’s experience of having a 7-month-old involves waking up in the morning and checking your Fitbit to make sure you’ve had your full 8 hours’ sleep, before looking in on said baby and going ‘hey, they seem happy’, then going for a hike.
