In the article, the Pirates of the Caribbean star wrote about how he enjoys having to 'earn' his breakfast, which consists of stuff like 'brain octane oil, a collagen powder, and some protein' and battered on about how he looks at cows and thinks they're the 'most beautiful thing ever'.
In short, it's a bit strange, but no stranger than - for example - Mark Wahlberg's routine which went viral a while back.
Bloom also went on about how he likes to listen to Nirvana or Stone Temple Pilots on a hike, which is normal enough, but also said that he likes to spend time 'dreaming about roles for myself and others - for minorities and women', adding 'I'm trying to be a voice for everybody'.
Whilst this is probably just a harmless and pleasant thing for him to admit, and he does say that his lifestyle is 'all quite LA, really', it's proven too much for some online.
One person wrote: "Genuinely thought the Orlando Bloom interview in The Sunday Times was a spoof.
"Is it really not?"
Another said: "I can't believe the Orlando Bloom interview isn't a parody."
A third drew a comparison with another famous person from the world of film, and it's not a positive one.
They said: "The day-in-the-life-of interview with Orlando Bloom in the Sunday Times Magazine today is beyond parody.
"Filled start to finish with priceless Eric Zoolander level nuggets like this one. It just gets better and better."
Everyone on board the #OrlandoBloom #SundayTimes train.. parody's, laughter, some even hating... surely I'm not the only one just wondering where I can get Brain Octane Powder from :raising_hand:♂️ sounds good!

Brilliant parody of 21st century vanity and self-absorption concealed under a paper-thin veneer of pseudo-Eastern spirituality. Orlando Bloom is a comic genius. https://t.co/EmwsifWURh

The snippet in question was a bit in which Bloom said he chants for 20 minutes per day, and said he doesn't like looking at his phone so as not to get 'sucked into the black hole of social media'.
That said, it has had an effect on people, for better or worse.
After Bloom's piece was published, Google searches for 'brain octane oil' spiked dramatically, perhaps with people wondering what on earth it actually is.
Bloom has been engaged to pop star Katy Perry since March, and the pair had a child together in August 2020.
Whether or not Perry is getting stuck into the brain oil or not is anyone's guess.
