Happy Birthday To Naked Water Sports Aficionado Orlando Bloom!
Happy Birthday, Orlando Bloom! A great man with a big heart and an even bigger filmography! Wow. Let's have a look, shall we? Over the years, the English actor has gained the following on his CV: Wilde, Black Hawk Down, The Calcium Kid, The Armenian Genocide, Everest: A Climb for Peace, Zulu, The Bling Ring and Digging for Fire, as well as getting naked in Midsomer Murders in 2000 with the older lady.

However, Bloom has kept a low-profile of late, probably because he's settled down with girlfriend Katy Perry. So settled, in fact, that when he went paddle-boarding with the pop star last August, he decided to skip wearing any swimwear and go full-on starkers.
When it was passed around the office, a few of the girls blushed. I didn't really get what all the fuss was about. I just thought, 'haha, Orlando Bloom's got a mushroom'!
Bloom's ex-wife, model Miranda Kerr, later revealed that the actor had text her in advance that the pictures were going to break.
She told Australian radio: "Oh my God, he texted me saying, 'I am really embarrassed, some photos are coming out. I just thought I should let you know.'
She continued: "I was like, 'hmm, right....What were you thinking? Seriously, what were you thinking?'
"Obviously, he wasn't."
"I am going to send Orlando a pair of both [boardshorts and budgie smugglers] because you know he might like either of those... or none."
Bloom himself took to social media to speak about the pictures.
One of which was the release of his sex tape - a literal tape with the word sex written on it.
The other was him running toward a camera, in slow-mo, Baywatch-style. It was captioned: "When you are chasing down the guy who stole your swimming trunks."
Good banter, Orlando. Good old fashioned British humour if you ask me.
Here he is using his third Legolas and being taken up the Mordor.
Have a good one, chief.
