Orlando Bloom Goes Green

Orlando Bloom Goes Green

Budding environmentalist Orlando Bloom wears his true colors as this month’s Elle Man in Elle Magazine’s May 2007 “Green Issue.” Here are the highlights of Orly‘s interview:

On his career: “I’m not doing any more trilogies….I don’t think there is anyone who would not have done the movies I did. But going back-to-back without time to digest the process and immerse yourself in the next [was] a challenge.”
On spending three weeks sailing in Antarctica: “It was the real pirate ship. The boat was an old Norwegian ice breaker now used for scientific research. I slept in a bunk and did the washing up and shared a toilet with, like, 27 other guys. It was an amazing experience.”
On being considered a sex symbol: “A friend explained it to me in a way that helped. He said there’s a window in every girl’s life where they kind of attach to somebody for a month. And if you’re that person for a month, then just enjoy it. And I was like, ‘Okay, cool!’”
On his career: “My profile went so high so fast that everything I was doing had much more attention on it than it would have otherwise. So there’s much more focus on the mistakes that everyone makes as they go through their career.”
On dating in Hollywood: “You can’t date if you’re famous. [...] It’s like you travel so much and it feels like the options are endless. People think getting a new partner is like getting a new car.”
On maintaining privacy as an actor: “I was talking to Johnny [Depp] on the set one time. I said, ‘Can you believe they pay you this much money to do a job you love?’ And he said, ‘Privacy becomes really expensive.’ It’s true.”

    It’s en vogue in Hollywood to go “green” at the moment.

    Whoa, you gotta admit, this guy has one hell of an interesting family! Everyone seems to do something important or influential. I bet conversation over their dinner table was never dull. Speaking about his family, I love that quote his cousin said about how they would “kick his ass” if he ever fell into the “hollywood bulls**t”.
    I’ve said it once before and I’ll say it again, I honestly respect this guy. He’s not like the rest of the stuck up, made-of-plastic-like-their-credit-card type who parade around the pages of the glossies.

    If only all the celebs used their status to such good effect, he comes across as so genuine.

    Orlando looks cute in green, great that he is an environmentalist.

  • Jennifer

  • Jennifer

    wow he did 2 trilogies….u’d think he’d do more but omg…he’s so nice

  • dildos

    Don’t get me wrong, but it seems to me that environmentalism became a kind of a new fashionable religion.
