I’ve never been an Orlando Bloom fan. I’ve never hated him, but I’ve also never felt drawn to him. To me, he comes off like some good-looking guy who doesn’t really have any idea what it’s like to be a normal person.
The video of Bloom trying to punch-out Bieber was the only thing I’ve seen of Orlando Bloom on fancy film or paparazzi film that I’ve found interesting.
But now…after Orlando and Katy P. are broken up, and she flirts via Twitter with aging but still very hot man Ryan Phillippe, he has finally said something that makes me think Orlando Bloom might have some perspective or awareness of himself in terms of public perception. About his break-up with Katy Perry he said this: “She happens to be someone who is very visible, but I don’t think anybody cares about what I’m up to. Nor should they” (according to x17online.com).
If he continues to show this kind of depth then maybe I’d actually go see him in a movie at the theatre. It takes A LOT for me to haul my ass to the theatre, and it’s not because I’m lazy, it’s because I am anti-social and prefer to consume movies, tv, music, etc. in the privacy of my relative solitude (except for my boyfriend and 3 cats) of my own apartment. The last thing I went to the theatre to see was Moonlight. It was worth the trip.
So, yeah, maybe, just maybe, I might end up directly spending some cash on Mr. Bloom, who just turned 40 and still looks quite young and/or healthy, for his ability to entertain me.
