Orlando Bloom is Deus Ex Machina

Orlando Bloom is Deus Ex Machina

Orlando Bloom rides off on his “Beverly Hills Ducati” motorcycle as he leaves a church on Saturday (December 27) in Los Angeles.

The 31-year-old British actor wore a jacket from Deux Ex Machina, which literally means “god from the machine.” Back in May, Orly shopped at Sydney’s bike store Deus Ex Machina in Australia.

Afterwards, Orly reportedly went out with Aussie model girlfriend Miranda Kerr and got into a fender bender.

bit blurry – amazed you can make that out.

I was also wondering why does Orlando look much heavier as far as weight gain in the face and body in the ones where he is walking toward his bike on Dec 27 – than the others – when he is wearing the grey sweater and white t – shirt. – his face is much rounder and fuller in some pics than the others where his face is much thinner –

and according to elf lady those pics of him in the grey sweater and white t shirt – were supposedly taken in Venice, California – not Los Angeles, California

scroll down to post #24 – at the link below

http://elflady.com/orlandolove/showthread.php?t=12657

And compared to the ones from Dec 24 – Dec 27 – he was also a bit heavier looking in the face on Dec 24 as well.

It seems a bit odd to me that there has been no mention of him being in a fender bender in Venice, California or Los Angeles, California on Dec 27.

Hi 151 you are amazed? I just clicked on the pics above and then on the enlarge to full screen button underneath. At full size the logo on the police car wasn’t at all blurry to me and very easy to read. I also clearly see a LA Policeman there. Perhaps I can suggest you try clicking on the pic second from the left in the first row of pics above posted by Jared? Have a look at the full picture and I think you might see the fender bender appears to have been in LA not in Australia.

I didn’t see any obvious difference in any of those sets of pics you referred me to check out. Some of Orlando were taken with him front on to the camera and captured his full face where as some were shots taken in profile so it is not his full face. Maybe that’s why his face looks fuller in some pics than others?

I think maybe the extra ‘bulk’ could as simple as him wearing more clothes both in NY and on the bike in LA. I’d think he might not have needed those extra clothes on for extra warmth when travelling in a car later on.

I can see what you were saying about the way the above story caption in total could read. Yes, it could easily be taken to mean the fender bender happened back in Australia in May. Perhaps the third paragraph should have been straight after the first if that was not the case? I read the second paragraph as written to explain where and when Orlando got the ‘Deus’ jacket, that is when he visited Australia in May, and wasn’t meant to imply the fender bender had occurred in Australia. But that’s just my perception and I can see why your own differs.

Sorry but I’m just not ‘seeing’ what it is you are ‘seeing’ even after going back to have a closer look as you suggested I do. It still appears to me the fender bender was in LA even if there have been no additional reports of it. I also think that all sets of pics you mentioned appear to have been taken within the written time frame of the last couple of weeks. If I’ve missed what you wanted me to see or look at then please let me know exactly what that might be. I’m not trying to argue or dispute you I’m just telling you what I’m reading and seeing as you asked me to look.

Hope you had a Happy New Year :)

I do see that is los angeles

although i’m not so sure that it was the same policeman talking to Orlando – any pics of that by chance – or of any policeman talking to him.

I’ve been in fender benders before where I was not at fault – and the police man usually talks to both parties involved – of course sometimes there is more than one cop involved.

It does seem a bit odd still to me that there were no reports about it – especially if it involved a celebrity.

also according to the pics on elf lady – they were in Venice, California – not Los Angeles – or are those two cities not very far away from each other – i don’t know – and would Venice use the L.A.P.D

thank you for not spouting nasty names and stuff like that.

I’m not trying to imply anything really –

something seems a bit off to me that’s all.

her not getting out of the car for one.

To me he does look considerably older and heavier in the face – in the pics when he is walking to his bike than the ones where he is in the grey sweater.

Thank you for the warm wishes – hope you had a good new year too.

okay maybe not “considerably” older – but he is starting to show his age a bit since Dec 24.

to me his face does look thinner in the ones with the grey sweater.

again hope you have a wonderful 2009

take care

I’d agree that Orlando at the very minimum appears to know people do ‘exist’ and he possibly does give a **** despite what the poster on the other thread wrote.

He and/or his reps recently chose to reveal on this very site, Just Jared, ‘exclusively’ first a rare statement on his behalf which I think completely refuted the rumours being spread of him being engaged to anyone. It’s not that big of a stretch to simply comment if he’s not engaged as was released then he’s also probably not getting married, nor planning it. Reason I write that Isn’t it normal for any engagement to precede any marriage? I was a bit surprised that people seem to have not commented or missed that it is rather out of ‘normal’ Orlando behaviour to release a statement at all and I don’t remember him ever releasing a statement exclusively here first before myself. Perhaps I’ve just missed them if he’s done it before. I’m not a regular poster here more of an occasional reader and occasional poster so I can only say I’ve not noticed it before.

Would seem quite odd to me for Orlando and or his reps to choose this site if they all were completely unaware of its existence? How can you release a statement to somewhere you don’t know exists? I think if he and his people are aware enough of the site then again it isn’t that big of a stretch to say probably means they are indeed aware of people too and more than likely indicates in itself they give a **** about them LOL.

I think possibly that example might indicate Orlando cares more than some people are willing to acknowledge or accept or give him credit for doing. I think maybe he showed that he did indeed care in his own way, by his and his reps chosen actions in that case, but that’s just my impression and I could easily be wrong.

Cheers and Happy New Year to you both too. I’m off for now thought I’d best tell you that. I’ve learnt in the last day or so that I’m apparently expected to announce my leaving just in case I again get accused of posting to myself or similar things LOL. Just kidding all ok ;)

believe everything you see do you

the force can have a strong influence on the weak minded

my condolences

oh they are walking together – even kissing – they must be in love

news flash – Orlando is of French background as well as British

He said so himself – on an episode of Ellen – that he had French family

They do a lot of kissing – i know – my boyfriend is part French – and they are some of the most Romantic people you will ever know.

It is virtually impossible to get one of them to settle down – I’ve tried for the past 18 years to get mine to settle down – but I still love him dearly.

the police car may have been in los angeles – where was the cop talking to Orlando and Miranda if she was with him during the fender bender –

I don’t know what the procedures are in Australia – but here in the states – I’m pretty sure that statements are made by both parties – including every passenger – in every vehicle – and that all passengers must exit the cars to give statements – unless they are physically incapable of doing so.

not saying anything against French people –

Orlando has always showed himself to be a very affectionate person even with those he sees as “just friends”

maybe there has been some mis communication between the two of them

how do you or anyone but them – know whether or not he has said to her that he only sees her as a friend – even if they did share a hotel room together -

just cause a guy and girl get together like that doesn’t necessarily mean they are.

to settle some things @ 01/01/2009 at 2:58 pm

Here is the video that someone posted earlier to refresh some memories:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16u5_pCn4kM

That is Venice CA which to answer whosever question was asking is a part of LA. I believe Santa Monica Blvd takes you down that way if I remember right. Santa Monica Blvd is a main road through LA,/Hwood area to the beaches. Venice is a beach community.

The date posted of the video coincides with the pics and stills posted. The other big fat giveaway is the gangbanger lingo used by the paps. its been known for a while that a lot of the new generation of cheap paps are gang, or ex-gang memebers as they are cheaper to pay and more ballsy to get where they need to get to. AND they are saying something about Orlando saying Merry Christmas to them and then laughing calling him names about it. I dont know as Ive never been to Australia, but I doubt there are many LA accented gangbanger paps there. Id say its safe to say the video and the pics are from the dates mentioned and in CA.

As for the accident, who knows. I find it strage as well that thehre was no mention of it anywhere else.

“As for the accident, who knows. I find it strage as well that thehre was no mention of it anywhere else.”

thank you – maybe he wasn’t in the accident and only a spectator – my question still is where is she? – and why is he getting out of the car – unless he was the first one on the scene – isn’t it the law that you have to get out and help if no one else is there. – surprising no one did a story about that – him being a good samaritan – unless he didn’t have to be – or wasn’t – not sure – very confusing.

well – good points about the video

still not so sure – considering how different his face looks – double chins are very hard to hide.

in the ones where he is coming from the church – he has got that double chin thing going on.

in the ones from venice and at the crash scene – he looks much skinnier – in the face

i know when guys ride motorcycles their jackets can make them look bigger – but the face – how does a guy hide a double chin?

not that i don’t think it is appealing on some guys – more to love in some cases.

Double chin????? Please where do you see the double chin?He is just over dressed to ride the bike he is a skinny guy and for sure doesn’t have a double chin and even if he had a double chin so what?He isn’t 20 anymore.

did you not read my last comment on my post

“not that i don’t think it is appealing on some guys – more to love in some cases.”

I was just noticing the difference in the two sets of pics thats all.

Doesn’t mean she wasn’t lurking around anywhere – i’m sure she was with him.

I was just noticing how he is aging – I never said he looked bad.

I think he looks very good – I like that he is starting to look older – makes him very appealing to look at – he is a celebrity / actor isn’t he.

It’s what kept Sean Connery in the spotlight for so long.

If he were to stay the same way forever – it would get rather boring after a while.

I used to think certain bands and celebrities were so cute at a certain age – and I had posters up on my walls when i was younger – but you can only have those things up for so long before you just don’t want to look at them anymore.

Sometimes real relationships end up that way – if the person seems to stay the same the entire time you know them – it gets not very much fun to be with them anymore – unless you are in love with them – because you can see much more than what’s on the surface.

But when they change as they age – it becomes more intriguing to watch.

The man I’m in love with has changed over the years – 18 years – and no I am not dillusional and referring to Orlando – 18 years ago Orlando was only 13 – I was 19 and had met the one I am still with to this day.

but I still love the guy I’m with as much as the day I met him – even more so.

I can tell when people age – since he is in the spotlight – like most celebrities – there will be noticable changes over time – look at John Travolta over the years – I was watching Broken Arrow the other day and afterwards I put on Grease & Welcome Back Kotter Series –

Sure he was skinny back then – but he aint skinny now.

If you check other websites there are many sources claiming that they were informed by Orlando’s rep denying the engagement rumours. My guess is that they are probably aware about some gossip blogs like Perez Hilton but from there to say they are interested on the comments written on the blogs.

Orlando wished the paps a merry Christmas and their reaction was to call him names? How strange, as according to some Orlando is the paps’ best friend and a wonderful customer that hires them to do monthly set ups. LOL

Orlando’s rep didn’t make a statement to this site. Jared got hold of one of his reps, and they answered a question. That is quite a bit different.

@157
It happened in LA. I don’t understand why you are disputing the evidence.

He isn’t part French. Some of his family lives in France. Just as some of his family lives in America, New Zealand, and goodness knows how many countries around the world. That doesn’t change his nationality.

And if both drivers give statements that agree, the police would not have to pursue the matter. They would not have to interview every witness, and it is to their own discretion as to whether the have everyone exit the cars. This is based upon first hand knowledge, by the way.

PS: I’d give up on that boyfriend if I were you. His being part French has nothing to do with the fact that he doesn’t want to settle down. He just isn’t interested, it seems.

@160
He doesn’t have a “double chin thing” going on. It’s just the combination of his expression and a high collar on his jacket. He has that ‘oh, it’s the paps’ grimace that we have come to know. The pics/video from the bike shop is the same day, and you can see that his face doesn’t look like that at all. Go to a mirror in a high collared shirt and pull your chin back while frowning. That will cause a double chin on almost anyone.
In the video from the bike shop, he is back to his gorgeous self.

I am sorry but i understood that you said that you sow a double chin on him which i don’t and that he was a little overweight which again he is not he is a skinny guy in my opinion. I am 24 years old and guys my age are in some cases not as in good shape as Orlando is and he is to became 32 years old.

now if a guy kisses and grabs you it’s because he has a “French background”. LFMAO

167 this is just jared you know. its habit for things to suit agendas, make sense then not make sense, and it seems this particular thread has become more about 162 and the every other post she has posted on 6 pages here about her own love life. i think at the beginning of this thread she was saying something about just meeting up with the guy she is talking about after having an unsteady relationship with him years and years ago, and in a matter of days he has gone from a hopeful maybe re-re hookup to being the one and they are so in love. dang! sounds like a britney spears relationship. im getting sick of her posts actually. in one sentence she says he has a double chin like its an ICK item and then the next post she says its just more to love.

I think I am just going to have to find another blog to read because this just jared one is just irritating to me now. i think people dont want anything about O and M to ever make sense. If you dont buy it you are a hater and if you do you are a shipper. they are showy especially her, but they apparently have a reason they are together. ********, in love, all show, contract, blackmail what does it matter? still together after first hooking up in march of 07 that we know of and i just dont get why every little piece has to be analyzed with such great detail. M cheated on her boyfriend and now J’s getting a taste of the fame she dumped him for. O is a publicity mess. maybe he will do movies again one day, but i dont personally think that will be for a while, but at the end of that day, it matters not to anyone but those in it. i guess we all need something to spectate to feel we have something important to add to whatever we see. just my thoughts from the top of mt everest.

@ fame sucks @ 01/01/2009 at 6:20 pm

why kick someone when they are already down. maybe she – whoever this person is – is trying to find some closure in her own life so she can move on – and maybe she is not really in as stable a relationship as she would have you believe.

maybe she didn’t realize that this Just Jared thread was such a sacred place. where those who kiss a.s.s. are only allowed to post.

what if she really will never be able to have that relationship she wants and she was just trying to find something to help her understand her own emotions.

and before you ask – no i am not her.

but i have been hurt from the insensitivity of others – such as the remarks you just made.

I swear on my soul I am not her – but if I was – now I know why it would be difficult to trust others – the likes of you.

People can care about others – even if you do not know them personally – and your remarks hurt me as much as I am sure they have hurt her.

If Orlando did not want his life to be viewed – maybe he should try a different line of work – or maybe he thought that he would not be as famous as he has become – lots of actors do work steadily without their lives being under a microscope.

It should not matter who he has for a girlfriend – even if she is famous – or becomes more famous than him one day – actors do fade from the limelight eventually.

I expressed my opinion on this matter and nobody was able to show where I’m wrong or don’t make sense, and I don’t have a problem with being called this or that.

@157

So far the only successful substitute for brains is silence. Just sayin’

#156 Here
Yes, I’m well aware of a plethora of further places that subsequently published the Orlando engagement denial statement, and then the subsequent denials given by Miranda after Orlando’s initial one. I am unaware of any other site that had that published that particular statement of his prior to the time when Just Jared published it first exclusively. Just Jared published it here on November 30th at 11.59 am to be exact if you go by the time that thread is credited as posted by this site. Several hours, then in the days after that time, other sites started publishing versions of the differing subsequent denial statements. Until such a time someone can show me another Orlando Bloom ‘official’ version published prior to that time then I stand by my observations.

If Orlando’s rep and or himself had been completely unaware of this site’s existence then are you trying to tell me that they randomly chose to answer the question to any site and or the first person who spoke to them? That just anyone or any place would have been given exclusive permission to print his official denial first? I don’t think so myself, as I said that would seem to me to be very out of Orlando’s normal ‘methods of information distribution’ for both he and his reps to do such a thing. Sorry but I don’t agree instead I would think it more implausible that ANY of his reps or Orlando would just give any statement or answer to anyone or any site to publish they did not know or were unaware of. Nor would they give them permission to publish any statement UNLESS they knew exactly where that statement was going to end up.

I’ll repeat they gave Just Jared a statement, (since you don’t seem to like the word statement, then substitute the word answer instead. I think that’s going into semantics myself but whatever no skin off my nose LOL). The points I was making are that it seems clear Orlando and or his reps know of this particular site AND If they know this site enough to allow publishing exclusively here first then I repeat I don’t think it is that much of a stretch to say they are likely to also be aware of the people who post here. Is there some reason that me agreeing about the concept that Orlando and or his people might know well of this site, and or possibly even might have read here is problematic?

He’s a human being, so are his people, so why wouldn’t it be possible that he and or they have such knowledge, some interest, and possibly did indeed choose this site themselves as their first place to ‘officially’ deny his engagement etc? I don’t understand why it is seemingly inconceivable that he might indeed be acutely aware of some places, has been for a long time, and also aware of peoples existences dare I say yes even might care about them. Are you trying to tell me he’s an uncaring and ignorant guy? He’s never seemed like that to me, quite the opposite, but again that’s just my own impression of him. I don’t foster any pretence of knowing him personally at all do you? If you not then to repeat I stand by my opinions and comments.

Perhaps all we have here is different viewpoints, which I’m more than happy to agree to disagree with you, on this issue. I see it differently than you and I’ve explained my reasons why I do. As I also said I don’t normally post on here and I really don’t have enough sustained interest in this partocular site to start doing so with any degree of regularity. I do hoever always reserve the right to post from time to time here if and when I feel like commenting on something written or have something to say myself in reply to posts made on here.

One of the jobs of ANY celeb’s representatives is to stay abreast of gossip about their employers. I’m sure that they are well aware of all of the larger gossip sites. Jared, as well as Perez, are probably well known to them. They pay attention, but that doesn’t mean that Orlando does. And if he, himself was going to chose a site to single out for inside information, it would more than likely be a place like ka-Bloom, that has supported him from the beginning, and not a site full of disgruntled, anons who find it entertaining to insult those that are close to him.
Once again, answering a question is not the same as issuing an exclusive statement, no matter what you call it.

marc and kriz @ 01/01/2009 at 9:53 pm

@173 Ka-Bloom does not discuss his private life so there would be no point for Orlando or his people to issue an exclusive statement regarding his denial of the engagement as it relates to his private life.

The oriiginal comment was if Orlando was aware of JJ. Seeing that his people gave JJ the exclusive, it would only make sense that they are most definately aware of JJ and the people here. His denial was not inside information, actually it was a public statement. It wasn’t insider information gathered from any site it was a straight out public statement of denial.

Cheers.

Of course Orlando is aware of JJ’s. Miranda posts here regularly under her own name. I think she also posts as the one called the Gunnedah Hobag, their writing is very similar and they both make the same spelling errors. Her brother posted here before, so did MommyKerr. Miranda probably has a higher post count than I do. Hi Mir!
