Despite the "film bitch" moniker... I am nothing if not a bleeding heart. So, I'm feeling for Orlando Bloom these days. I thought I'd stroke his ego (ahhh, stroking) by giving him the shout-out this Wednesday. His movie (Elizabethtown is tanking at the box office. His last movie (Kingdom of Heaven) tanked at the box office. And naturally, given his extraordinary beauty and ridiculously easy fortune (5 of his first 7 movies were blockbusters), the critics are out for blood. But honestly is it really his fault that he was a ninny in Troy? He was playing the part the way it was written thank you very much. And is it really his fault that Kingdom of Heaven had problems and Elizabethtown is (apparently) a mess?
How can you be hating on a face like this?
So, how do you like your Orlando best? Bloom is pretty tasty in all available varieties: Flynn-like swashbuckler, romantic and scruffy soul-searcher, modern metrosexual? Me, I guess I'm still partial to Elfin. I ♥
Legolas. I do.
P.S. in other Hump Day Hottie news, please congratulate me for eating up the new James Bond before the announcement was made.
