Some celebrities like to lie low, keeping all the private parts of their life away from the press and public.
Orlando Bloom on the other hand proudly put his private parts on show one August afternoon in 2016, while paddle boarding with his now-fiancée Katy Perry.
The Lord of the Rings star was snapped fully naked, rowing his girlfriend Katy Perry across a lake in Sardinia whilst she reclined on a paddle board.
Weirdly enough, it wasn't his rowing skills that got the internet talking. No, instead it was the size of his willy. It looked so large that Orlando has had to actually downplay his wang in a recent interview with Howard Stern on his radio show.
He proclaimed: "It is really not that big. Things are expanded on cameras with a big optical lens. It is an optical illusion."
There's definitely going to be a rise in sales of optical lens cameras this week, isn't there?
Orlando continued to expand on the saucy set of photos: "The publicist called to say, 'That is not the worst of it. First of all there were pictures with a block over it.'
"And you make some jokes like: 'Have you got a black box big enough to cover it?' And then you suddenly realise somebody is going to uncover the black box because they are going to be paid enough.
"It's a triple whammy - photos, black box, then no black box."
If that wasn't awkward enough, Bloom had to text his ex-wife Miranda Kerr to warn their eight-year-old son Flynn that his weapon would be shared all over the internet.
Miranda spoke about the situation in 2016 on Aussie radio station Kyle & Jackie O. She said: "Oh my god, he text me and he was like, 'Um, I'm really embarrassed. Some photos are coming out. Just thought I should let you know.' And I was like, 'Hmmmm ... right, what were you thinking? Seriously, what were you thinking?'"
It's hard to think what Orlando Bloom expected to happen as most A-list celebs
struggle to nip to the shops without being snapped, never mind ferrying an internationally loved singer like Katy Perry across a lake in
the buff. There was no way that was not going to get attention.
The whole episode has also sent Twitter into meltdown.

Having said that, if the snaps are to be believed, regardless of
so-called optical lens, he's got nothing to be ashamed of.
Perhaps we'll see him on the next season of Naked Attraction, which recently aired one of the most shocking episodes ever.
