Orlando Bloom: 'Zulu' Full-Frontal Nudity Was Empowering

Orlando Bloom: 'Zulu' Full-Frontal Nudity Was Empowering

Orlando Bloom carries his cutie pie son Flynn, 2, on his shoulders as they head out to spend the day together on Sunday afternoon (December 22) in New York City.

The 36-year-old actor and the little one took advantage of the unusually warm weather. It was nearly 70 degrees!

“I got in the best shape of my life for that movie,” Orly recently told Elle about doing nudity for his upcoming film Zulu. “It was quite amusing walking around set and seeing the crew avert their eyes at first. Then there were a few more people watching playback. [Laughs] I got so comfortable with it I could brush up behind someone and go, ‘Oh, excuse me.’”

When asked if it was empowering, he responded, “It was. Dude, it is what it is. It’s flesh and bone. It’s what we all are.”

    What a cutie pie is that little boy…

  • Gggggvbnnm

    Gross. I go to see movies, not porn.

  • Andrea

    Flynn is such a cutie and Orlando always looks gorgeous.

  • mom50

    The naked body is not ” gross” Prude

  • Luv to see father and son

    Orlando Bloom has a nice physique. He looked great in LOTR. Nice legs, especially. Like women, some men are just blessed genetically. Even if they don’t work out, their bodies have naturally good symmetry. Brad Pitt is another one… and another is Mario Lopez.

    @Gggggvbnnm: Wow- it’s sad to think anyone automatically connects what I can imagine is VERY brief nudity in a movie with porn. I feel pity for people like you, Gggggvbnnm… you must lead a very boring, sheltered life. ;)

  • Brady

    Can’t stand this arsewhole BTW the child looks very ethnic is Orlando half jamaican or someting.

  • Tibi

    To me, the child looks like Miranda :)

  • hmm

    How @Brady: How come you can’t stand Orlando Bloom? What has he done bad to anyone? Huh? Also, half Jamaican??? If anything, looks like Flynn could be mixed with Spanish or some other Latin race. Flynn is cute as anything! I think he’s a cross between both parents, but his looks are changing. He does not have MIranda’s large, colorful eyes. His eyes are definitely more like his daddy’s eyes, moreso when Orlando was younger. Orlando is beginning to show age now. He seems like he would spend a lot of time doing outdoor sports and activities.

  • Mean Girls

    @Brady: “Ethnic” is a racist and anachronistic term. It implies that white is the default or dominant race. Which, I assure you, especially in an increasingly non-anglo USA with Latin population becoming the dominant ethnicity by numbers, is not true.

  • hmm… and lol!

    Every single adult person I know who says things like, “Dude, this…” or Dude, that…” has had a free, almost child-like spirit. They just wanna have fun. They don’t want to be tied down.

  • Gggggvbnnm

    I think it’s amazingly sexist how Miley’s posts get derogatory comments and a males people say “human body isn’t gross”. Sexism is still alive I see.

  • Gggggvbnnm

    STFU and quit directing posts at me. A penis is a very ugly body part. End of story.

  • Fiona

    Ugh! Why do you even bring Miley here? She’s so pornographic. I dont understand why people do love to comment on her.

  • mom50

    Actually Gg-whatever. I m a fan of Miley, so Im always sticking up for her also. If you dish it out, you better be able to take it

  • Amy


    Not really. Miley was just vulgar and gross.

  • @haters…

    It’s funny how the “haters” love to attack & bully Miranda & call her “disgusting” for simply doing her JOB modeling all sorts of different clothes from Couture to swimsuits/lingerie.

    Yet not a word about Orlando doing a FULL FRONTAL NUDE shot in his latest movie. Or the fact while nude on set he creeply says that “I could brush up behind someone and go Oh, excuse me”….imagine the OUTRAGE by you “haters” if Miranda had jokingly said something like that!!!!

    You “haters” are such hypocrites & use double standards simply to find ANY excuse to insult her out of spite & sour grapes!

  • Elena

    Today on Keeping Up With The Kerrdashians: Orlando explains that a nude scene was necessary to prove that his balls remained intact after his contract with the beard everyone thought had chopped them off and crushed them up to use in her organic skin cream. “Look! I still have them! My spine, on the other hand…” Oh, and @17…it would be more of an issue that he was naked if men were often objectified in movies and magazines the way women are. In this patriarchal society, women are 100% of the time reduced to naked things while men are lauded for having the “guts” to take it all off. It just goes back to the double standard in our society. But understanding that would mean you had to think and we all know that you simply cannot do that. Idiot.

  • Ta

    The n-dity is in the book and important for the character.
    I cant wait to see Zulu. Not for his full frontal, though that is a plus. I’m looking forward to seeing him in such a gritty roll.

  • @18

    Don’t you ever get tired of being such a hateful loser?
    I know. Silly question.

  • @me

    And he’s forgot that he’s been nude in Troy and Kingdom of Heaven!

  • @21

    Nothing was shown on screen. That’s the difference here.
    He could have had a low covering in Troy. And there wasn’t a n*de scene in KOH, so I’m not sure what you’re talking about.
    And my goodness is Flynn gorgeous. He really does look more like Orlando every day.

  • Domi

    Flynn actually looks nothing like Orlando.He looked exactly like Miranda as child.

  • Love The Shoes

    @Brady: Someone as obviously ignorant as you about ethnicity/culture/race really shouldn’t post anywhere. Do your homework and learn that one doesn’t have to be white, black or brown to be Jamaican, Puerto Rican, Cuban etc. Don’t be so dumb if you must speak ok?

  • http://yes!!! EAST ASIANS CAN READ MINDS!!!!

    Asians can hear, and see what you’re visually thinking.
    THIS IS NOT A JOKE OR A MEME! This is the absolute complete truth!!!!
    Asians hide their mind reading abilities by having completely expressionless faces so they don’t accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don’t like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
    Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.
    All Asians are keeping their mind reading abilities a secret, they don’t want ANYONE to know they can read minds! They value hiding it more than their own lives!!!
    Try thinking, and visually picturing things as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason, it works if you try enough!!!

  • @19

    Too bad the movie sucks. And not in a good way.

  • Zee

    I don’t see a “cutie pie” son in these pictures.


    @Mean Girls: OH SHUT UP. We’re sick to death of idiots like you dropping the race card because your dipwad president can’t take the blame for his epic failures. Stop it. Everyone isn’t racist but you must be since you keep bringing it up.

  • ugh!

    @EPIC FAIL OBAMA: President Obama is NOT a failure. And we don’t join political parties. This country is supremely racist. I have never seen anything like what we are seeing today from the racist Republicans across this nation. This topic has nothing to do with politics. The more you act so hateful toward the first black president, the more you are turning people like us off. You’ll never get our votes. And without the votes, you won’t win unless you have a really excellent candidate. Work on that!

  • Cute…

    ..kid but his dad is a very cowardly f*g..

  • Isa

    I saw Zulu and Orlando is great in it !

  • Kath

    Today on keeping up with the Elena idiot….please get your hand off your balls…for someone who is always crapping on about how women are treated so badly you go and call Miranda a beard…..plu-ease. You are a hypocrite. If u feel there are such double standards with women (which I can agree on) why dont you go out & help do something real about it? Not sit in your den, patting your cat spewing hate! Dont try & palm off to us your a do- gooder when you have a childish vulgar mouth for a “female”….your also an out & out bully. What a great example you are for women – your a joke. You do not sound credible at all when you speak childish sh*t in your posts. Talk about double standards!!. By the way to anyone interested… Mirandas enriched body lotion actually helped fix up my keloid scarring on one of my tattoos. Ita a very good product. And Domi…have a good look at Orlandos baby photos &,you will see he & Flynn look the same.

  • @23

    Look at those eyes and brows.
    You must be blind to not see the resemblance between father and son.
    You haters must really have your blinders on.

  • @26

    Funny. I’ve seen some really great reviews.
    I can’t wait to see it.

  • Amy


    I think Flynn looks like a mix between Orlando and Miranda. JMO. He’s a really cute kid and usually seems like he’s happy. I’m glad he has two great parents.

  • Ta

    Flynn does look like a mixture of both parents. He has Orlando’s eyes, brows and smile. With Miranda’s cheeks and chin.
    Such a beautiful child.

  • Rose of Kilgannon

    Nudity has nothing to do with porn!
    An the little one is really a cutie. Wishing him and Orlando a merry and peaceful Christmas ! :)


    He should come out already. It’s annoying. He will always look fake with women ’cause he used to be with men!

  • Maya-Chan

    Are you retarded? Orlando has never and never will be with a man, you hating ignorant idiot!
