Orlando Bloom Gets A Degree!

Orlando Bloom Gets A Degree!

Orlando Bloom receives an honorary degree from the University of Kent in his hometown of Canterbury, United Kingdom on Tuesday (July 13).

The 33-year-old English actor was joined by his fiancee Miranda Kerr and his mother Sonia Bloom, father Colin Stone, and sister Samantha.

“It’s a really big deal. It’s an exciting day for me,” Orly told the Press Association. “I’m really honored to be back in my home town. I have so many amazing memories of the cathedral and Canterbury. I have lived near the university so it’s like my playground. It’s a huge, huge honor and I feel chuffed, as does my mother – nobody more than my mother.”

This was Orlando‘s first graduation ceremony since missing the graduation at Guildhall School of Music and Drama because he was working on Lord of the Rings at the time.

    David Suchet (the other guy in robes) seems to have worked out how you’re supposed to wear those hats.

    Orlando Bloom
    Capricorn Sun, Scorpio Moon

    produces in you an extremely strong inner drive and a keen sense of your own importance as an individual. A certain rigid inner pride keeps your self-respect always at a high level. Early on, temperament may be a problem, but as you mature cooperation is learned and a judicial and rather stern nature rules the personality. A very reserved individual, you often express yourself in quiet ways, always remaining perfectly capable of communicating disapproval without saying even a word. Most people think of you as a very reasonable person and in may ways you are. It is very difficult, however, to ever persuade you that you are wrong because of a highly inflexible core within. Often you may use the tactic of appearing not to understand the other person’s point of view, even when it is quite clear to you. You are very honorable, loyal, and devoted, with a keen sense of the sobriety of life, and of your duty as a part of it. Right or wrong, you hold to your first impressions of people, especially if those first impressions were not good. You are a very understanding of people and their problems, and while you usually can remain very much detached, you are a good listener and provide sound advice. Emotions never seem to interfere with your reasoning power.

    Another degree of BS for Orlando Bloom. What was it in–Scenery Chewing and Overdramatic Brow Arching? Celebrity Posing and CheckWriting? Why is everyone acting like this is a genuine, hardearned accomplishment on his part? Like it is real or something? His mum’s all chuffed-for what? Getting there picture taken by some hired gossip pap? Does this make it real for them? Some family values, anything goes as long as at least a few people buy it most of the time. To bad for the other genuine graduates that day who sacrificed and worked hard for there degrees because there value has dropped along with there negotiable salaries. An honorary to say, Ian McKellen, would be one thing, but Bloom? What is this, clown college? Good thing his fiancee was there to help make sure he got some media coverage for it.

    So he’s a stubborn idiot so full of self-pride he’ll cut off his nose to spite his own face rather than admit or correct a mistake? Clings to fantasies? Sounds about right.

    Like father - like son Says:

    He wore a similarly foppy hat in Curse of the Black Pearl and still managed to look good, but he was young and handsome then. Now he just looks…odd and sort of old. He resembles his portly-looking father more and more as time passes.

    Only idiot haters could find anything wrong with these pictures.
    Orlando now has an honorary doctorate to go with his well earned bachelor’s degree. A BFA, honors, that he achieved despite his dyslexia.
    He is a local boy done good. Surrounded by loved ones, and making even the traditional silly hat and gown look darn sexy!
    The other doctorate recipients posed for photos, too. Are they famewhores as well? Or just Orlando, because he is posibg with his fiance? If she wasn’t there would you feel differently? Oh yeah, I’m sure of it.

    What the hell did he get a degree for ??!!!! Science? Economics? Mathematics? Genetics?

    And trust, the most “chuffed” person there is Miranda who finally got her photo shoot with family Bloom.
