Orlando Bloom Sits Under a Tree, Studies His Navel

Orlando Bloom gives a funny interview in the Details May 2007 issue, hitting newsstands tomorrow, April 17.

He touches on his faith in Buddhism saying, “The philosophy that I’ve embraced isn’t about sitting under a tree and studying my navel, it’s about studying what is going on in my daily life and using that as fuel to go and live a bigger life. When your girlfriend dumps you, when the bill comes through the door, and your mom calls you and tells you she can’t handle the stuff in her life—that’s hell, but that’s just one world. If you are aware of what is going on, then you can grow and use that hunger, that fear.”

Orlando, 30, currently describes himself as “mildly dyslexic” and describes the rough time he had with the condition growing up. “School was a challenge, put it that way,” he said.

Justin Timberlake: It's All In The Details

Justin Timberlake is the cover boy for the April 2007 issue of Details Magazine. Here are some of the highlights from Justin‘s interview with Details:

  • On the tabloids: “I despise what they do. They create soap operas out of people’s lives. [Cameron and I] had our thing, and it’s over. They edit that stuff like MTV edits reality shows. It’s a spin game, and I choose not to take part in it.”
  • On being considered the New King of Pop: “I tried so hard to be an R&B artist [with first solo album Justified] and it was the pop album of the year, and I was like, ‘F***. That’s the last thing I wanted but I was like, ‘So everyone considers me a pop artist? Well, fuck it. I’m going to do whatever I want to do.”
  • On surviving the boy-band apocalypse and becoming a man: “I could give you a bunch of analogies about why I’m still around that would sound like hippie self-help bullshit. ‘I saw an opportunity and I took it?’ Fuck you. Sure, there’s a lot of luck involved. But on some level I have to believe in my ability. And I’m not apologizing to anyone. I worked fucking hard to get here.”

  • On being used by the Grammys for ratings: “I’m the nice guy who follows through on the things he commits to. But I don’t know if I’ll be going through that sort of thing again. I feel like the Grammys used me for ratings. And look at it-they were up 18 percent.”

This Justin Timberlake-centric issue hits newsstands in NY/LA today, March 20 and nationwide next Tuesday, March 27. Go get ‘em while they’re hot!
