Last year, Orlando Bloom went from decently well-liked B-list celeb to full-blown Internet idol when footage of the actor taking a swing at Justin Bieber leaked online.
Now, Bloom is finally opening up about the incident and confirming what the footage seemed to show: he never actually made contact with the Biebs.
“I wanted the opportunity to clear this up, I actually did not ‘connect’ with Justin Bieber,” Bloom said while accepting the Britannia Humanitarian Award in LA over the weekend.
It was an odd time to open up about the fight, as Orlando refused to talk about it in the past, even after Bieber claimed to have slept with Miranda Kerr while she was still married to Bloom.
Bloom also took the opportunity to acknowledge rumors that he's dating Kendall Jenner, saying:
"And I don't know Kendall Jenner, but if anyone has her number I would love it."
Again, something of an odd comment at a ceremony honoring Bloom for his humanitarian work with UNICEF, but we're sure Orly was just joshing.
At least we hope so. Dude is literally twice Kendall's age.
Anyway, good for Orlando for being able to laugh at himself, but as he creeps up on middle age, we hope he won't continue finding himself attempting to lay hands on teenagers - for any reason.
