Orlando Bloom: Playing the Bad Boy 'Was a Lot of Fun'

Orlando Bloom arrives at JFK International Airport on Wednesday (October 19) in New York City.

The 34-year-old British actor recently chatted with the Associated Press about his new movie, The Three Musketeers, which opens this Friday.

“[My character, the Duke of Buckingham] is a bit of a bad boy. He’s a rake, he’s a rogue isn’t he? He’s a cad. And that was a lot of fun,” Orlando dished. “This was just a romp. Stick your tongue in your cheek and go big or go home.”

As for whether this is the type of film he’d take son Flynn to see, Orlando shared, “I think so. I mean he’s 8 months [old], so not yet perhaps.”

“I’m not sure he’d appreciate it but he might – he’d marvel at the explosions and stuff,” he added.

FYI: Orlando is wearing a Lanvin jacket.

  • YAY!

    Back in NY!
    He looks adorable, but a bit tired.
    Looking forward to seeing him on Regis and Kelly on Friday!

    Like him, he seems so nice. Find his hair dyed a bit too dark now though, think that is what makes him look tired.

  • truethat

    he’s so soft and gay looking..can’t fool that he’s a “bad boy” lol
    Don’t get the fascination with him..his acting and looks are soooo overrated. His fan base consists of pre-teen girls, same ones who like Justin Beiber.

  • @6

    That’s his natural hair color. He has always had very dark, brown hair.

  • @7

    Sure thing, sweetie.
    You keep telling yourself that if it makes your fanboy heart feel better.

  • @7

    LMAO! Orlando Bloom is 17 years older than Justin Bieber….most of his fans were teens in the year 2000….

  • @truethat

    Do you think gay people can’t be threatening? Or be rakes rogues and cads? Wasn’t one or more of the Kray Brothers gay? Weird to say someone is too “gay-looking” to be a bad boy. Or do you mean “gay” in the sense of “lame”?

    ORLANDO IS SOO CUTE. He is a sweet boy too. Much success with the Musketeers Duke.

  • Anon

    Can’t wait to see the duke. He looks handsome as always. I laugh that the people on Delphi are grasping at straws now. They see how happy and in love Orlando is with Miranda and Flynn and they can’t stand it. What miserable people if they can’t be happy for him. They are not Orlando and Miranda fans because of the bashing they have done. If they were true fans they would be happy for him. Miranda looks beautiful as always.

  • @13

    You’re starting to sound like a broken record. Nobody brought up Delphi but you. Why are you trying to stir up trouble? You are obviously obsessed with that other board. Poor Orlando and Miranda if you are indicative of what their “fans” are like.
