Back in August 2016, Orlando Bloom spent a magical day vacationing in Italy with then-girlfriend Katy Perry. In addition to soaking up the sun, eating lunch on the beach, and engaging in some steamy PDA with the “Chained to the Rhythm” singer, Orlando also whipped his penis out and went totally nude while paddleboarding. The pictures of him in his birthday suit quickly went viral online, and now the actor is opening up about the whole thing. “Yes, it was extremely surprising,” he told Elle UK of the attention the photos got. “I wouldn’t have put myself in that position if I’d thought it would happen. I’ve been photographed a million times in a million different ways. I have a good radar. We’d been completely alone for five days. Nothing around us. There was no way anyone could get anything. So I had a moment of feeling free . . . What can I tell you? Note to self: you’re never free. Ha!”
Orlando, who managed to keep his shorts on during another paddleboarding session in March, officially called it quits with Katy in February, but he went on to say that there’s nothing but love between them. “We’re friends, it’s good,” he continued. “We’re all grown-up. 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. It’s between us. It’s better to set an example for kids and show that breakups don’t have to be about hate.”
