Orlando Bloom at We Day: I'll Never Take Life for Granted!

Orlando Bloom at We Day: I'll Never Take Life for Granted!

Orlando Bloom poses backstage with Big Sean while attending the We Day California event held at the Oracle Arena on Wednesday afternoon (March 26) in Oakland, Calif.

The 37-year-old actor talked about the time in 1998 when he fell three stories after trying to climb to the roof of a building. He was paralyzed for four days and doctors thought he might never walk again.

“Laying in that hospital bed, I thought about the course of my life,” Orly said. “How reckless I’d been. How I hadn’t valued my life. I knew that wasn’t my destiny. I fixed my mind right there and then that I would leave [the] hospital on my own and strive to never take life for granted again. Never.”

Also pictured inside at the event: Seth Rogen, Hannah Simone, Evanna Lynch, Reggie Watts, Martin Sheen, and Rico and Raini Rodriguez.

    he is looking hot here! love his hair

  • Moondreamer

    He seriously needs a haircut!!

  • YES!

    And love the fact that he is willing to spend the time to help inspire kids.
    I actually love his hair long.
    But since he seems to cut it ASAP when he finishes a role that needs long hair, he must be growing it out for a reason. Guy Fawkes (sp?) maybe?
    *crosses fingers*

    Orlando gave a very inspirational speech. He is a gorgeous man. I love his hair long. He looks like Drew in Elizabethtown. It’s great that he is giving his time to help others. He is going to Jordan next month with UNICEF to speak to Syrian refugees. It’s great that he gets active in a lot of charities because it shows what a compassionate, kind individual he is.

    I was at this event. It was amazing. Selena Gomez was really sweet and Orlando Bloom is beautiful. He is soooo hot. I never realized before but he is gorgeous and has a great accent and his speech was really inspiring and I loved his hair. And he doesn’t even look that old so my friends couldn’t believe he was so old. This is a great event. Thanks for putting it on.

    Orlando has earned his star and it’s great to see that he is getting honoured for what he has contributed to the film industry. It’s great he is getting the recognition he deserves. Can’t wait to watch him getting his star online tomorrow.
