Orlando FINALLY Explains WHY He Was Paddle-Boarding Naked
Ever since we first saw the photos of Orlando Bloom paddle boarding across the ocean with a bemused Katy Perry sitting in front of him, we - and the rest of the world - have wondered, why Orlando, why?
Not that he technically did anything wrong - more that, when you’re that high profile, dating someone else REALLY high profile, and are constantly followed by paparazzi, why would you strip off and get your, you know, ‘thing’ out? UNLESS, you really have something to be proud of, or it’s a publicity stunt.
We suspect it could have been a mix of the two.
However, 40-year-old Orlando has finally, MONTHS later, set the record straight on the matter.
“I have been photographed a million times in a million ways. I have a good radar,” the Pirates of the Caribbean star told Elle UK of the nude paddle boating expedition with then-girlfriend Katy Perry.
“We’d been completely alone for five days. Nothing around us. There was no way anyone could get anything. So I had a moment of feeling free,” he continued.
“I wouldn’t have put myself in that position if I’d thought it would happen,” Bloom shared, later quipping, “Note to self: you’re never free. Ha!”
Later in the piece, he indirectly commented on his split with Perry.
“We’re friends,” he said. “It’s good. We’re all grown-up. She happens to be someone who is very visible, but I don’t think anybody cares what I’m up to. Nor should they. It’s between us.”
There you go, eh?
