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.”
GBF tells the story of two closeted best friends, Tanner (Michael J. Willett) and Brent (Iacono). Brent longs for the spotlight and has a plan that will make him the most popular kid in school. He believes that coming out will make him instantly popular, as the newest must-have teen girl “accessory”: The G.B.F. Tanner on the other hand, would rather fly under the radar and graduate from high school without ever being noticed. When things don’t go according to plan and Tanner is outed instead of Brent, the two boys go from B.F.F.s to instant frenemies and the three most popular girls in school — queen-of-mean bombshell Fawcett (Sasha Pieterse), drama club diva Caprice (Xosha Roquemore) and sweet, Mormon good-girl ‘Shley (Andrea Bowen) launch an all-out social war to win Tanner’s status-enhancing friendship. Meanwhile, Tanner must choose between skyrocketing popularity and the friends he is leaving behind.
