Orlando Bloom is known for many things, including portraying sexy elf warrior Legolas in Lord of the Rings and being engaged to Katy Perry. But superfans will also know Orlando as the guy who went nude paddleboarding that one time.
ICYMI, back in 2016 photos surfaced of Orlando and Katy on vacation in Sardinia, Italy, and while Katy was sitting on their paddleboard in a bikini and sunglasses, Orlando was only wearing a cap as he paddled them around the ocean.
And according to The Sun, during an interview with Howard Stern earlier this week Orlando joked about the photos, saying, "It is really not that big. Things are expanded on cameras with a big optical lens. It is an optical illusion."
He also went into detail about how it all unfolded, sharing, "The publicist called to say, 'That is not the worst of it. First of all, there were pictures with a block over it.' And you make some jokes like, 'Have you got a black box big enough to cover it'...And then you suddenly realize somebody is going to uncover the black box because they are going to be paid enough...It's a triple whammy—photos, black box, then no black box."
Orlando also admits that he was upset when the photos first came out, but from the above comments, it seems like he's feeling better about his junk being on the internet. He even used the dick pic discussion as a chance to plug his new show, saying that fans can also see him naked there, sharing, "I do get my butt out in Carnival Row."
So, do with that information what you will!
