The Carnival Row star told The Sunday Times that he was celibate for six whole months before he met his current fiancee Katy Perry. He said that his friend Laird Hamilton suggested he become celibate.

Bloom revealed, “Laird said, ‘If you want to be serious about a relationship, go celibate for a few months and figure it out. It takes away the idea of going to a party and thinking, ‘Who am I going to meet?’ I was suddenly, like, ‘Oh, I can have a relationship with a woman that is just friends.'”

Adding further, “I was going to do three months of abstaining, but I was really enjoying the way I was relating to women, and to the feminine within myself.”

“It was insane,” Orlando Bloom also confessed. “I don’t think it’s healthy. I don’t think it was advisable. You have to keep it moving down there. Porn is super disruptive to your sex life, to your libido.” 

“They’ve done the studies, they can’t find any kids who don’t watch it. When you watch multiple people at multiple times in one evening, how is your actual real-life partner going to match up? It’s just so destructive,” he continued.

Orlando Bloom recently got engaged to Katy Perry back in February. The 43-year-old proposed to Perry on Valentine’s Day. Furthermore, the 34-year-old singer announced that is pregnant last month through social media as well.

The Lord of the Rings star also talked about his engagement to Perry and their pregnancy. He said, “So there’s Katy Perry, and there’s Katheryn Hudson, her real name. Katheryn is the woman I’m really intrigued by. It’s like, I’m a boy from Kent and you’re a girl from Santa Barbara. That’s what I’m focused on, not the bells and whistles.”

Orlando Bloom already shares a son with his ex-wife Miranda Kerr who is now married to the creator of Snapchat. Bloom further added, “She’s [Katy Perry] amazing at arranging things. My son put it so well. I asked, ‘What’s it like with Mum and her husband Miranda Kerr and Evan Spiegel? How’s it different to us?’ He smiled. ‘You’re the fun couple.'”
