Orlando Bloom Serves Nepal for UNICEF

Orlando Bloom Serves Nepal for UNICEF

Orlando Bloom wears flower garlands and a red “tikka” mark on his forehead (local symbols of welcome) while visiting ethnic Tharu children and women at the Sayapatri Community Organization in the village of Dibyanagar in Chitwan district, Nepal.

In his role as an international ambassador for the charity UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Fund), Orlando, 30, toured UNICEF-supported programs in the country’s western region November 30 – December 9, 2007, meeting with UNICEF staff, health facilitators and educators, as well as women’s and other community groups.

Nepal is still recovering from a decade-long civil war that left 13,000 people dead, hampered the delivery of basic services and restricted development of the nation. Malnutrition is the underlying cause of more than 60 per cent of child deaths in Nepal; an estimated 51 per cent of children under the age of five stunted in growth and 48 per cent considerably underweight. However, maternal mortality has significantly reduced from an estimated 539 deaths per 100,000 births in 1996 to 281 maternal deaths per 100,000 births in 2006. Child deaths are also on the decline, putting Nepal on track to reach Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) 4 and 5 (the reduction of under-five child mortality and improved maternal health).

    Well, the last few post have just about demonstrated to me the brillance and sophisication of Orlando’s fan base. The one person who did have something valid to say was ignored and misread. That is about the intelligence level of those who worship at the feet of their proclamied god.

  • ?-?-?

    #100 I don’t get your point why are you coming in here to bash him.
    I’m not a fan of Orlando but I can apprecite when someone does something worthwhile. You’re very ignorant you don’t know how much those children need help. You’re just here to spread hate. very stupid indeed.

  • Shannon

    awww…too cute. he’ll be a great dad someday :)

  • Whatever you girls say

    I’ve never really understood the appeal.

    Doing good things for Unicef is good in general but also good for the image. Not to offend all 50 of his fangirls, but he does love publicity and has been known to do anything to get it. Let’s face facts – he had a bad run of publicity throughout the end of 2007 (wrecking cars, groping women, acting like a drunk, women-hopping, dressing/looking like a homeless person, etc.).

    He goes around most of the time wearing ill-fitting and extremely-worn clothes and showing his underwear. A few facts: 1. he’s not an underwear model – he looks too dirty to model underwear; 2. he’s from England, not the Hood – he has no street cred to be able to pull off wearing his pants that low; and, 3. he’s a grown-up – he’s going to be 31 not 13. There comes a point when that’s not cool anymore.

    Then, this week alone, two posts on Jared about him that aren’t too bad. His reputation has needed some resusitation for a while now. Hopefully his management will bring out the paddles soon and give his career a good jolt; otherwise the career flatline is certain to continue.

  • sally struthers is that you?

    Oh, dear here we go again with another celebrity kissing poor impoverished babies.

    “I doubt Mr. Blooms presence has inspired any rich individuals or corporations or governments who haven’t already donated to UNICEF(believe me, they’re quite popular) to open the coffers more. You know, the people with the REAL money. This was mostly for Mr. Blooms personal interests and gains. Believe me, the monetary returns on these visits, charades an old friend of mine calls them, is very little, if anything, compared to the costs to cover them. ”

    So, you’re in the know, Ms. International Relief Fund Gal? Let me see if I understand.

    UNICEF is popular. They have no real need for the hasbeen Orlando Bloom to go on a photo op because they already have tons of rich people donating and doing this doesn’t change anything appreciable, correct? And this cost a lot of money (paid by UNICEF?) for no benefit to them. Am I following things so far?

    Now, we’ve already established Orlando is a loser, a hasbeen, a drug addict, has one of not more communicable diseases, gropes women against their will, serial dates, crashes his car and leaves his friends to die, oh and his worse sin, it seems according to you, dresses badly. (I wonder if he dressed impeccabley all the time if you’d find fault with that. What a flashy sellout! He probably gets those clothes for free and sets up photo ops to show them off! Something like that, right?)

    But where were we, oh yes. Orlando sux. And his 15 minutes are over. But somehow he wielded enough power to get UNICEF (who we must remember did this against their will because it has no need for publicity itself) to set up a PR stunt to rehabilitate is tarnished image.

    Did I get this right? All this despite the fact that Orlando was originally set to go to Sri Lanka for UNICEF prior to Pirates: At World’s End premiering in May before any of this so-called image rehabilitation was needed. What foresight on Orlando’s part.

    Please let me know if I followed the logic. I want to get it right.

    One last thing. You all you like to harp on all of Orlando’s failings and the signs of his imminent demise and fall from grace do realize that in the real world the accident got very little attention? That the vast majority of people don’t see these pictures? That most people have no idea about who Orlando was linked to? That the biggest story in recent memory for normal people was that he was dating Jennifer Aniston? Only his fans and ex-fans seem to know the excruciating and skewed details of his life. And as so many of you are so quick to point out, the fangirls love him regardless, will make up excuses regardless, will always defend him and never agree with you lot.

  • hollywood finest.

    #103 who care about the way he wears his clothes? this man is just a “hot piece” that’s what I care about.

  • fan caliber

    i thought the whole point of sites like this were for people to express their opinion, the ones who seem most reasonable and understanding of views that may be different than their own, the more adult posts, if you will, seem to be those that are less likely to love everthing he does. The ones that get angry and hysterical and frantic that the whole wide world just doesn’l love Orlando to death because he is just so hot, and sweet, and cute are the ones who are reduced to expressing themselves with child like speech. Whoever said he needs to grow up is right, and then maybe he will be have more adult, and thoughtful fans too. Actually though Attention-hungry Netkook, although I disagree with your view, your posts do make me smile, you maybe the exception to the rule. Eats roasted children indeed, snort!

  • Whatever you girls say

    You can do google-entertainment news and his indescretions come up. You cannot deny that he has done those things. I really don’t think UNICEF gets much of anything from celebrity visits. They get to put out pictures; they have to in order to show that people are doing something with the donated money. The facts about Nepal wouldn’t be on this site without Orlando’s name attached, so that’s good.

    The point is he tries to get his picture/name on these sites and in the papers. He doesn’t have any projects and hasn’t for quite a while. Fame is fleeting. Why not go to Nepal? It’s a good thing, Nepal’s an interesting place, the people are nice and don’t really know who you are, it’s a good cause, plus he gets publicity.

    If he just goes to the store, the pictures don’t show up unless there’s the gratuitous showing of the underwear, bashful running from the paparazzi, or linking with a girlfriend. He’s got to keep the fangirls happy, don’t ya know.

  • LOL @ #96

    #106 aka crazy like me, excellent post!

    “Now, we’ve already established Orlando is a loser, a hasbeen, a drug addict, has one of not more communicable diseases, gropes women against their will, serial dates, crashes his car and leaves his friends to die, oh and his worse sin, it seems according to you, dresses badly. (I wonder if he dressed impeccabley all the time if you’d find fault with that. What a flashy sellout! He probably gets those clothes for free and sets up photo ops to show them off! Something like that, right?)”

    Yep, pretty much. He can do nothing right by some people. If he were to quit acting, give all his money and belongings to the homeless and become a Buddhist monk, they’d have a problem with that, too.

    Since someone will inevitably bring up the ex in order to point out the “hypocrisy” of Orlando fans, I’ll do it first. Yes, she didn’t get much love. But I think most people-at least the mature adults-would give her due credit if she did something really great or tried to make the world a better place. She just never did.

    “One last thing. You all you like to harp on all of Orlando’s failings and the signs of his imminent demise and fall from grace do realize that in the real world the accident got very little attention? That the vast majority of people don’t see these pictures? That most people have no idea about who Orlando was linked to?

And as so many of you are so quick to point out, the fangirls love him regardless, will make up excuses regardless, will always defend him and never agree with you lot.”

    He showed that he wasn’t the sparkly, flawless image of perfection he was sold as. I don’t blame him, because it would be exhausting to maintain an image 24/7. He showed that he is just a guy who has achieved extraordinary things in his young life, but that Will Turner and Legolas will always be just fictional characters.

    What else did he do? Well, nothing really. From where I’m standing he never did anything wrong, so I can’t help but laugh at the people who think this work was some attempt to rehabilitate his image. I wasn’t aware that it was ever tarnished, were you? From my vantage point, he wasn’t doing anything different than any other single guy with a little money in his pocket.

    Anyway, I wish the ex-fans who can’t let go would familiarize themselves with the phrase “the opposite love is not hate, it’s indifference.” I wish they’d get on with that indifference and get lost.

  • Post to yourself much??

    #113 You noticed the strange postings, too. Glad I’m not the only one. You’ll find this kind of thing on any of his posts and other people’s (Brangelina). They all have their die-hard fans who don’t like to hear anything really negative about their idols.

  • Karen

    His trip to Sri Lanka was cancelled due to security issues, if I remember correctly. With the political turmoil in Nepal, I’m just glad that he got home safe.

    You know, even if you cynics are right (which you aren’t) and the only people interested in his trip to Nepal are young teenage girls, I think that is fantastic! Wouldn’t it be great if his involvement made young girls realize that there are more important things in the world than the having the latest styles, or the cutest jeans? If he can turn one narcissistic brat into a caring human being who will give back to society, mission accomplished as far as I’m concerned.

    And as for his birthday? I hope that he has a blast! Drink and be merry, Orlando! And I hope that you have a girl, or two, to help you celebrate your 31st!

    PS: Carmen, you really need to get out more.

    So you’ve backed off your claim that this was Orlando’s set up PR stung? UNICEF actually does need celebrities? They need to get their message out (regardless of the audience) and this is the way to do it? I see. That’s not what you implied in your first comment, was it? And you’ll admit it is a good thing that attention was brought to the issues in Nepal? And that Orlando had a hand in it? I see. Hmm.

    No one is denying that he gets good PR out of something like this. But the idea that it was all some attempt to revive his career/image rather than quite possibly something Orlando cares about isn’t fair, is it? Orlando had been trying to work for UNICEF for a long time, and he happens to be free now to do it, what should he have done? Said he couldn’t go because people might think he was being a famewhore? In the scenario above, UNICEF benefits, the people in need benefit, and yes, Orlando benefits. Everyone wins. Is there something wrong with that? It’s the old double edged sword, damned if you do and damed if you don’t.

    I am not saying Orlando is a saint. If others think he can do no wrong that’s their business. But to say Orlando can do no right is ridiculous and just as myopic.

    For #112: I never thought his image was tarnished, either. There are few bitter hags who harp on his so called escapades of doom and beyond that, no one cares.

    “I wish the ex-fans who can’t let go would familiarize themselves with the phrase “the opposite love is not hate, it’s indifference.” I wish they’d get on with that indifference and get lost.”

    I wish that too. That fine line between love and hate is awfully blurry, ain’t it?

    He’s worked nonstop for the last 8 or 9 years. His last movie was in May and he worked on a play over the summer. It’s hardly tragic that he has no movies lined up. As he said, he is picking carefully. In the meantime he has spent the year going to Antarctica, doing work for UNICEF, narrating a documentary about the Everest Peace Project, and yes, enjoying his life. Quelle horreur!

    I think the scariest thing for all these ex-fans is that he’s obviously not slinking off into obscurity anytime soon. He’ll be around annoying you for decades to come.

  • K-Mart

    LOL wow some of you are very hard up for those flame wars of the past huh? Ahh memories. :)

    IMHO whenever a celebrity does something charitable, even if it turns out it was for a bit of PR, as long as someone is helped/benefits then I don’t see the problem. Perhaps by just showing what’s wrong and how bad things are for others will get other people with the means to help to ACTUALLY do just that.

    Besides think of all the celebs who do nothing but flounder in their own hype. Say what you will about Orlando but he’s never been that type of person.

    So I say good on Orlando and I hope he keeps bringing attention to causes that he’s interested in. Also the pictures are very nice too.

    He’s done it. He will not save the world but at least he was down there with those children who i bet, don’t recieve so much attention everyday.
    So please, can we go back telling how hot is he without speculating about why he’s done it?

  • Just Wondering

    It seems like he always knows the hot spots, Nepal, utlra trendy, and Villa, again ultra trendy. Seems like that is how his life is lived, the new hot place, religion, girl, and in place. Sorry I am not buying it, now I will sit back and let the fat middle age broads, and the little fan girls scream.

    It seems to me that some people are just posting any ridiculous thing they can think of that will upset the “fangirls.” They think it’s fun. I personally don’t see the appeal, but then again, I’m not a sociopath so I guess I wouldn’t.

    Just think of what kind of desperate, bitter and unhappy place you would have to be in your life to get pleasure from upsetting total strangers, and you’ll get an idea of the motivation behind this.

  • Karen

    “Just think of what kind of desperate, bitter and unhappy place you would have to be in your life to get pleasure from upsetting total strangers, and you’ll get an idea of the motivation behind this.”

    I guess that’s my problem. I can’t even come close to that level of desperation. My life must seem like sunshine and roses to these poor souls. Maybe we should pity them instead of trying to reason with them. For I think that they are far beyond reason.

    That makes me sad.

    @118
    Carmen was a fan in the states who was well known in the Orlando fandon for being obsessive and some say crazy. I think she worked in the business in some way, maybe it was make-up or something, and claimed a lot of insider information.
    I think the current fans like to think that anyone who post negatively about Orlando must be Carmen. It makes it easier on them to think only one person in the world doesn’t care for Orlando and his blatant hypocricy so they start yelling Carmen anytime they see it.

    @115 I noticed it too. They must be getting tired because he/she isn’t even trying to not be obvious and is complementing his/herself on their great post.

  • big^girl don’t cry

    #131 GOSH I’m not an Orlando Bloom fan but I can reconize that he’s got a lot of fans just googled him or go to youtube or else.
    You sound like a crazy stalker very scary indeed.
    I think it was very nice to him to bring the limlight to this cause.
    I don’t understand why people are trying to discouraged his fans that is a very stupid thing to do.
    He looks very cute and sincere, so well done to him……
    You should try to help the others rather than whining on a gossip blog.

  • th

    Orlando didn’t really risk much by going to Nepal. He got publicity for UNICEF and himself. It’s a beautiful locale. It doesn’t seem that he really did anything more than a meet & greet and play with the kids. UNICEF’s work there has been done. It would have been more impressive to go some place that aid work had just begun or was needed. I don’t think it makes the fangirls think about Nepal and the troubles of the people there for any longer than it takes to read these posts. Most of them probably couldn’t find Nepal on a map. The fangirls will add it to all of his “charms,” and then move on to the next time he’s on the gossip sites. It seems, based on his previous actions, that will be next week.

  • Solene

    I think you’re the stupid ones. Celebs are helping Unicef to bring the limelight to a country where children are suffering. They’re not in the country all the time like the volunteers.
    You’re so ignorant I bet you didn’t even know where was Nepal, until you post your stupidities.
    Good job Bloom, and those pictures are very cute.

    you don’t have to be an Orlando fan to post on this thread why some people always assume that all those comments are from his fans.

  • reality

    He pays a management team an exorbitant amount of money to care for and present his image. His fan base is what will get him movies, and his image is that of a clean cut, young boyish guy. Groping models, wandering around looking high, and deserting injured friends in a wreck, doesn’t appeal to his fans, and damages his image and thereby his earning capabilities. Thus some trips and photo ops that start to clean up his act. If he was intelligent enough to handle his own career and decisions, he may not have to use others to tell him how to play the game, and perhaps it wouldn’t look so blatant. This is a man who in an interview about his sad little movie Haven, said it would be bigger than Pirates, so it is obvious he isn’t the brightest bulb in the pack. He needs to develop a deep and richer fan base, and expand his image. His management team is just working on damage control at this point. His trip with UNICEF, is going to make little difference, I mean really how many people with big money are going to send more money to them, because Orlando goes there. It will, however, melt all the little fangirl hearts, and give lots of aww look at sweet Orlando moments. Those people he met had no idea who he was, and really could not care less. If he is sincere about his concern for humanity, perhaps less time spent at exclusive clubs, and more volunteering at places where he could actually make a difference would be in order. It is very easy to show up, get pictures taken, look good and sweet for the cameras, it is far different be cooking, handing out blankets, or cleaning up at a shelter. If he did a few real work hours regularly as possible with his schedule, then I might believe he is legit. He is not working, he has plenty of time, why doesn’t he use it to really help others.

  • Karen

    Carmen works as a low end “costumer”, who has never had any direct, or even indirect, contact with Orlando, but always claims insider info.

    She has a certain way of writing, well known in the Orlando fandom. A few of these posts, and posts on other threads, reek of her condescension, THAT is why she is being called out.
    No, we don’t think that everyone who writes anything negative about the man is Carmen, but she is/was definitely here. Her account at IMDB keeps getting deleted, so she has found a new outlet.

  • reality

    If you are implying that I am this Carmen, who I have never even heard of, you are sadly mistaken. Perhaps it is just anyone who sounds literate and makes sense is labeled at her. Then they can be dismissed and you can crawl back into your make believe world, where Orlando Bloom is Prince Charming

  • @136

    To be fair I think he was joking when he said Haven would be bigger than Pirates. He was well aware it was a little indi film and he kept saying “it needed a lot of love” to make it.

  • Karen

    Wow. You don’t seem to have a very good grip on ‘Reality’. Maybe you should change your name.
    Did I say that everyone who dislikes Orlando is Carmen? No? Didn’t think so. But if you have followed him closly enough to remember his comments about Haven, and now label him a hypocrit for doing charity work, maybe you are. Or are you UnbraidedElf??

    “This is a man who in an interview about his sad little movie Haven, said it would be bigger than Pirates, so it is obvious he isn’t the brightest bulb in the pack.”
    Are you soooooo dim that you didn’t realize that he was joking?? Pathetic.

    But you’re right about “those people” not knowing who he is. But when you look at the videos, they are obviously drawn to him. They must have liked the person he is, not ‘who’ he is.
    He is using his celebrity in the best way possible. Bringing awareness to a cause. And unless you are using every spare moment doing volunteer work at a local shelter, as you expect him to do, you have no right to criticize him. Because, you see, that would make YOU the hypocrit.

    He didn’t have to go all the way to Nepal to spend four days in a remote area, where there aren’t any four star hotels or room service to be had. He could have stayed at home, and written a check. But he didn’t. He went there to see the progress for himself.
    What a bastard.

  • crazy like me

    “He pays a management team an exorbitant amount of money to care for and present his image. His fan base is what will get him movies”

    He pays the standard fee that everyone pays. 10-15 percent. And everyone presents an image. Everyone. And everyone’s fanbase gets them movies. Or are you so dense that you think there are actors that don’t need fans at all? And don’t start naming Oscar winners to me. Those people are in a class all by themselves. The vast majority of actors are in the same boat as Orlando Bloom.

    “Groping models, wandering around looking high, and deserting injured friends in a wreck, doesn’t appeal to his fans, and damages his image and thereby his earning capabilities. ”

    But I thought his career was already over before the wreck? It’s not like he lost jobs since then, correct? People have been going on about the end of his career for a very long time. And as many pointed out his fans gloss over this and put their blinders on right? Only the righteous few, like yourself, see the truth. There are people that have done far worse things than be in an accident that the police decided was entirely not Orlando’s fault. He looks high in pictures? Your opinion. Not fact. He gropes models? I believe that is model, singular. And I saw that video, the lady in question didn’t seem all that bothered and in the end nothing came of the story so I see no way this damaged Orlando’s image other than to the few vultures sitting around waiting to pounce on the slightest weakness to attack even having to blow minor incidents out of proporiton to bulster their weak case.

    “Thus some trips and photo ops that start to clean up his act. If he was intelligent enough to handle his own career and decisions, he may not have to use others to tell him how to play the game, and perhaps it wouldn’t look so blatant. This is a man who in an interview about his sad little movie Haven, said it would be bigger than Pirates, so it is obvious he isn’t the brightest bulb in the pack. ”

    A trip for UNICEF that he was supposed to take way back in April but couldn’t for security concerns. Again, the amazing foresight on his part is mind boggling. And you do realize that is the rule in Hollywood to have managers, agents, etc to guide your career? Almost no one does it alone. And if you didn’t see that that was a joke then I am sure you also thought that Orlando’s appearance on Extras conveyed his true feelings for Johnny Depp.

    “His trip with UNICEF, is going to make little difference, I mean really how many people with big money are going to send more money to them, because Orlando goes there. It will, however, melt all the little fangirl hearts, and give lots of aww look at sweet Orlando moments”

    You act as if Orlando is the only celebrity UNICEF employs to promote its goals. The point of it is to raise awareness, to let people see the work they are doing, and yes to encourage people to donate. If you think UNICEF was at the beck and call of Orlando Bloom you’re not just dumb, you’re crazy.

    “Those people he met had no idea who he was, and really could not care less. ”

    And yet the children seem enamoured with him. Interesting, isn’t it? No, they don’t know who he is. And he did not go there because meeting a movie star would be a big thrill. He went to raise awareness in the rest of the world about the humanitarian needs in Nepal and the work UNICEF does.

    “If he is sincere about his concern for humanity, perhaps less time spent at exclusive clubs, and more volunteering at places where he could actually make a difference would be in order. ”

    And how do you know he doesn’t? I am not going to argue about how much time Orlando Bloom spends at exclusive clubs (although, briefly, how many pictures have their been of Orlando over the last few months? And how many of those times was Orlando at an exclusive club? Someone want to count for me? I guarantee the number is very small. But off the top of my head, in all of December he was at a club once. One time. In a whole month. Did he go more? Possibly, but I don’t know and neither do you) but unless you know what he is doing every minute of every day then you have no idea how he spends his time.

    ” If he did a few real work hours regularly as possible with his schedule, then I might believe he is legit. He is not working, he has plenty of time, why doesn’t he use it to really help others.”

    How do you know he doesn’t? Because it’s not being publicized? And if it were? You’d say he was only doing it to make himself look good, raise his earning potential, rehabilitate his image and make his dumb fangirls squee. Am I wrong?

    Ok, I am going to step away from the crazy obsessed people now. I will pomise to move very slowly and not make any sudden movements. Stay calm, and return to your nice rosy, fuzzy, cloud cuckoo land. Of course Orlando is wonderful, and marvelous. Everything you say is true and right. The man should be deified.

    Is it safe to turn around yet, have they gone back to gazing at his pictures, and hopefully forgot I was here? Someone tell me if they have gathered the pitchforks and torches and if I should be running as fast as I can.

    So that’s your reply?
    Anyone who doesn’t think that Orlando Bloom is the Devil incarnate is crazy??
    I say again….pathetic.

    His reasons for doing it are less important than the fact that he’s doing it at all.

    I have way more respect for people like him than I have for other celebrities who shall remain nameless who sit on their asses and count their millions and benefit nobody but themselves.

    I am pretty sure that at no time did I invoke the name of Satan, just let me check. Yes postive that no references to Lucifer, Beelzebub, the Antichrist, the beast, father of lies, Prince of Darkness or the angel of light were mentioned. Said as she cowers with in her safe room.

    I’m not an huge Orlando fan, but after seeing the video and pictures of him in Nepal, I really think he is genuine about bringing awareness to these people. Sure, people say he could be doing MORE, because he has all that money, blah blah. But the point is, that he’s doing it at all. He certainly doesn’t need to recover his image, because it’s never been lost, and b/c he doesn’t need to promote anything. Heck, he’s been acting for years and years without a break. Finally, he has a break now from his acting work, and is using his free time to do things like this, when he could be partying up a storm in L.A. everynight, or visiting glamourous parties for publicity.
    The video is up on youtube, btw, if anyone wants to see it.

    Oh, reality, you’re as obsessed as anyone. Why else would someone that clearly dislikes a person follow their every move?

    Of course, I am interested, but achieving mass hysteria when someone questions his motives, no, I think not. I am just as entitled as anyone to express a reasonable opinion, even if it differs from yours. Now, I think it may be time for your medication.
