Orlando Bloom Breaks Silence On Those Paddle-Board Pictures
Speaking about the infamous 2016 snaps of him and now-fiancé Katy Perry paddle-boarding in Sardinia, the 42-year-old Pirates Of The Caribbean actor used the opportunity to set the record straight about his, erm...manhood.
At the time, there was a big hurrah about Orlando's member, but the Carnival Row actor has now claimed the size was all down to an "optical illusion."
Speaking to DJ Howard Stern, the humble star added that the camera angle simply showed him in an impressive light.
Orlando said: "It is really not that big. Things are expanded on cameras with a big optical lens. It is an optical illusion."
Recalling when he found out the pictures were about to leak, he added: "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 realise 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.
After the snaps were taken, the actor had to text his ex wife Miranda Kerr to ask her to warn their eight-year-old son Flynn before he saw them online.
Speaking at the time, Miranda told Aussie radio station Kyle & Jackie O: "Oh my god, he text me and he was like, "Um, I'm really embarrassed. Some photos are coming out.
"Just thought I should let you know". "And I was like, "Hmmmm ... right, what were you thinking? Seriously, what were you thinking?"
Personally, Orlando, we think you've got nothing to be embarrassed about...
