Orlando Bloom Was "Comfortable" Playing Nude Scenes And Still Believes In Love
Orlando Bloom on his nude scenes in the crime drama 'Zulu': "I got in the best shape of my life for that movie."
Most of Orlando Bloom's female fans will be happy to hear the British actor does not mind getting fully nude in front of the camera.
The 36 year-old recently spoke to Elle magazine and admitted getting naked for his film 'Zulu' was just another day in the office.
"I got in the best shape of my life for that movie," he tells ELLE magazine of playing 'Brian Epkeen' in the crime drama.
"It was quite amusing walking around set and seeing the crew avert their eyes at first. Then there were a few more people watching playback. I got so comfortable with it I could brush up behind someone and go, 'Oh, excuse me.'"
The 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor also revealed that when he was in drama school and seriously broke his back the first thing running through the actor's mind was "Will I be able to have sex again?"
Doctors were unclear whether or not Bloom would walk again and he recalled, "It was this four-day period where it was all a question mark. But I had this really strong belief that that wasn't my life. That wasn't in the cards for me."
Luckily he was right and a few days before graduating drama school, Orlando would be cast in the life-changing role of the elf prince 'Legolas' in the 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy.
Bloom, who is currently starring in Broadway's 'Romeo & Juliet', recently split from his wife of six years Miranda Kerr, but this didn't dampen his philosophy on finding love again as he told the mag;
"I'm completely in love with the idea of love. Maybe I'm all misty about it because I'm playing Romeo. But I really believe in, you know, that sort of heart-to-heart connection."
And asked whether meeting Kerr for the first time was love at first sight, he replied, "It was a lot of things. And actually, I'd rather not talk about it."
The interview is in ELLE's January issue which hits newsstands on Tuesday (Dec 17th).
