Orlando Bloom is The Good Doctor -- Or The Bad One?
“I’m so excited to be here,” the 33-year-old British actor told JustJared.com at the party. “It’s my first time here at Sundance.”
When asked if he’s been doing anything fun in town, he shared, “I have a day off tomorrow, so I’m going to try and see some movies. But if I can get ahold of some snowboarding gear, I’ll go boarding!”
Orlando also confirmed to JustJared.com that he’s soon going to start shooting the new movie, The Good Doctor. “Except he’s not a good doctor — at all!” he laughed. Check out the movie synopsis on IMDB!
As for the blogosphere, Orlando says he keeps out of it because he read one a long time ago and “couldn’t believe how nasty it was.” Mr. Bloom reminisced about his start in Hollywood and how his popularity exploded after Lord of the Rings. How did he cope with it? “I kept myself busy with work but now, it’s crazy! Look at that guy Robert Pattinson. The poor guy can’t go anywhere now!”
Since blogs are out of the question, Orlando likes to stick to traditional media outlets like The New York Times, The UK Times and UK’s Guardian. “It’s crazy how the world gets its news from blogs but congratulations,” he added. “You’re Just Jared!”
Orlando also isn’t familiar with Twitter. When asked to give a shout-out to the Twitterverse, check out what he shared with @JaredEng!
As for being pictured with longtime friend Robin Baum below, Orlando smiled, “She’s the best publicist in the world!”
Also at the event, Cornerstore Entertainment celebrated the Sundance films Hesher and Sympathy for Delicious, which stars Orlando, at the Bing bar. There was also a special live performance by the Broadway cast of Rock of Ages, including Constantine Maroulis (pictured below with rumored socialite girlfriend Tinsley Mortimer).
Before the performance, Orlando stopped by the Hesher dinner at the Stella Artois Cutting Room, where he hung out with the director and a few friends.
