Everyone is shocked by Orlando Bloom’s lifestyle after Canterbury, LA
Orlando Bloom surprised fans by revealing his unique morning routine this weekend.
In an interview with the Sunday Times, the Canterbury-born actor spoke about his Buddhist awakening.
Bloom, who attended St. Edmund’s School in the county, began practicing Buddhist when he was 16.
In the interview, the Lord of the Rings revealed that he sings for 20 minutes every morning.
Bloom continued to credit religion for having played a large part in his successful career.
He said, “I sing religiously for 20 minutes every day.
“I’ve had a Buddhist practice since I was 16, and it has infiltrated my whole being.
“I had this remarkable opening chapter of my career for which I was only half-present.
“Without my Buddhist practice, I could have easily got off the rails.
“I changed the narrative in my head and made me feel like I can be the driver of my train.
“I can light it, but I can call the fire department and put it out.”
In the interview, Bloom also spoke about his role as the parent of his new child, who was born last August, in addition to his fiancé and singer Katy Perry.
The Pirates of the Caribbean Stars also talked about his move towards veganism.
He said: “Sometimes I look at a cow and think it’s the most beautiful thing that has ever been.
“At some point we will look back and not be able to believe that we used to eat meat.”
The actor says he likes to start the day with “some green powders” mixed with brain octane oil, collagen powder for his hair, nails, and protein.
Then he goes on a hike and listens to the pilots of nirvana or the stone temple.
After he has “earned” his breakfast, he puts porridge with “a little hazelnut milk, cinnamon, vanilla paste, hazelnuts, goji berries, vegan protein powder” in a cup of PJ Tips.
44-year-old Orlando, who took his big hiatus at 22 when he was cast as Legolas in The Lord of the Rings, says he’s 90 percent plant-based and will eat a really good piece of red meat maybe once a month.

The pure interview got fans on social media to share their reactions.
Dan Barker tweeted his 26,000 followers, saying, “The interview with Orlando Bloom in the Sunday Times was really a parody.
“Is it really not?”
Comedian Michael Spicer shared a video of a cockney reading Bloom’s interview as a joke.
Pointless host Richard Osman wrote, “I think Orlando Bloom could be perfect to play Ian Ventham in #TheThursdayMurderClub.”
Podcaster Lucy Siegle took to Twitter to defend the actor.
She wrote: “Years ago I was on a trip with #OrlandoBloom in Japan. (We did such ridiculous things back then.)
“He brought a friend who was in the latter stages of his life with an incurable disease to see the temples.
“He seemed like an absolute treasure to me.”
Some Kent locals also shared their thoughts and quickly found the contrast between Bloom’s life today and his early days in the county.
Jon Holmes took his step on veganism, writing, “When Orlando Bloom was a kid in the theater youth group I worked in in the 90s (in Canterbury) I’m pretty sure I saw how he enjoyed a packet of Poppets and a lilt. “
Another user said, “#OrlandoBloom is talking some rubbish, huh, LA broke it.
“Come back to Kent Babes, I’ll take care of you.”
Somebody else couldn’t quite believe Bloom’s Canterbury legacy and wrote: “There’s something very confusing about Orlando Bloom, who grew up in Canterbury.”
