Hey, do you remember when photos of a naked Orlando Bloom enjoying a day in the sun on a paddleboard were released in August of 2016? To jog your memory, he was vacationing with then girlfriend Katy Perry when the papparazzi snapped shots of the couple in various states of undress. And while Orlando looked very chill in these pics, he apparently did not feel so chill when he first saw them on the Internet.
In an interview with Elle, Orlando was asked whether the "hysteria" surrounding his nudes took him by surprise. “Yes, it was extremely surprising,” he responded to the very bold interviewer. “I wouldn't have put myself in that position if I'd thought it would happen."
“I've been photographed a million times in a million ways. I have a good radar,” he continued, “We'd been completely alone for five days. Nothing around us. There was no way anyone could get anything. So I had a moment of feeling free.”
He sure did. Obviously, Orlando's privacy was violated, and he didn’t love it, but he also seems to have taken things in stride. When asked if there’s a double-standard for men versus women when it comes to nude photo leaks, he replied, “I didn't take it that deep, darlin'. What can I tell you? Note to self: you're never free. Ha!”
When the photos first surfaced, Seth Rogen appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and host Andy Cohen asked him to weigh in on Orlando's package as compared to Justin Bieber's — the other celebrity johnson everyone was talking about that summer. Seth admitted he's seen both, saying, “As soon as I hear there’s a famous penis out there I’m the first person to ravenously devour it online."
Seth spared a few words of praise for Justin's package, then said, "But Orlando’s I was really happy with. Good for him. And he’s in great shape over-all. And he’s a bigger guy, but it still looked proportionally to scale.”
The fellas also admired Orlando's "bubble butt” for a bit before Seth concluded, "And he’s a nice guy." Truly, Orlando is a triple threat.
