Orlando Bloom finally spills on those nude paddleboarding pics

Orlando Bloom finally addressed that time he went nude paddleboarding and we all saw. 

In a new interview, Orlando Bloom has shed some light on what it's like to have your penis splashed across tabloids all over the world.

In August last year, the 40-year-old star was photographed by paparazzi sans pants while enjoying a holiday with then-girlfriend Katy Perry.

Now, Orlando has spoken about that experience for the first time and why he was paddleboarding in the nude in the first place.

"We'd been completely alone for five days. Nothing around us," Orlando told Elle UK. "There was no way anyone could get anything. So I had a moment of feeling free."


He added he was surprised by the rabid interest in his nether regions, adding "I wouldn't have put myself in that position if I'd thought it would happen."

The frenzy was swift after the images were released, with many rushing to Twitter to marvel at the, erm, size of Orlando's package.

The news even spread to Gogglebox Australia where cast members Anastasia and Faye hilariously marveled at his manhood.

Orlando also spoke about his recent split from Katy Perry, saying the former flames remain friends.

"It's good," he confessed. "We're all grown-up. She happens to be someone who is very visible, but I don't think anybody cares what I'm up to. Nor should they. It's between us. It's better to set an example for kids and show that [break-ups] don't have to be about hate."

Orlando and Katy dated for 10 months before calling it quits earlier this year. 

"Before rumors or falsifications get out of hand, we can confirm that Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time," a joint statement read at the time.

As for another important woman in his life, Orlando had equally lovely things to say about ex-wife Miranda Kerr, with whom he shares a six-year-old son, Flynn.

"With Miranda, there was a sense that I don't want my son to go back through the internet where people have made up lies [about us]. Miranda and I have a remarkable relationship. We co-parent really well," he said.
