Orlando Bloom Wants To Forget About ‘Troy’

Orlando Bloom spilled the beans on a role he’d rather forget faster than a bad Tinder date.

The 47-year-old heartthrob has had his fair share of swashbuckling adventures, from dodging cannonballs in Pirates of the Caribbean to strolling through Middle-earth in Lord of the Rings. But when it comes to Troy, well, let’s just say Orlando’s memory is about as selective as a goldfish with short-term memory loss.

In a recent chat, Orlando let slip why Troy was the unwanted guest at his mental party.

For those who haven’t revisited the early 2000s cinema scene lately, Orlando donned the armor alongside Brad Pitt, Eric Bana, and a host of other Hollywood heavyweights in this epic tale of ancient warfare. Playing Paris, the guy who basically kicks off the whole shebang by stealing another dude’s wife and starting a war, wasn’t exactly Orlando’s idea of a rollicking good time.

When quizzed about his most memorable lines from the flick, Orlando drew a blank as deep as the Aegean Sea.

“Troy? Oh, man. I think I’ve erased that one from my brain,” he confessed. “Sure, it’s got its fans, but for me, playing that character was like being handed a spear and being told, ‘Charge into battle, but don’t forget to smile!'”

He went on to spill the beans, revealing, “The cast was stellar, no doubt. Brad, Eric, Peter O’Toole… legends, every one of them. But when it came to Paris, I was like, ‘Hold up, can I get a script rewrite?'”

Contemplating the depths of his character’s emotional journey left Orlando feeling more lost than a tourist in a maze. “I mean, come on, there’s a scene where Paris gets beaten up and then clings to his brother’s leg like a lost puppy. I just couldn’t wrap my head around it,” he admitted. “My agent at the time was like, ‘But that’s the moment! That’s where the magic happens!’ And me, being the gullible actor I am, fell for it hook, line, and Trojan horse. I think that’s why I’ve purged it from my memory.”

Even Hollywood heartthrobs have their “Thanks, I hate it” moments. But hey, at least Orlando’s got plenty of other blockbuster adventures to keep him busy. Just don’t mention the T-word around him unless you’re ready for a good laugh… or a strategic memory wipe.
