    Orlando Bloom Defended His Viral Morning Routine After Becoming The "Running Joke Of Just About Everybody"

    "I've been the running joke of just about everybody."

    Orlando Bloom is shaking off all those funny comments about his morning routine after he explained what he eats for breakfast in a recent interview with the UK's Sunday Times.

    "Don't start!" he said, laughing, on the British radio program The Chris Evans Breakfast Show With Sky. "I've been the running joke of just about everybody, between my friend groups and families — when you read that out loud!"

    In the article, Bloom said that he likes to “earn” his breakfast, so he tends to work out in the morning.

    “I'll just have some green powders that I mix with brain octane oil, a collagen powder for my hair and nails, and some protein," he said. "It's all quite LA, really. Then I'll go for a hike while I listen to some Nirvana or Stone Temple Pilots."

    If he does eat breakfast, then he’ll make himself some porridge with "a little hazelnut milk, cinnamon, vanilla paste, hazelnuts, goji berries, a vegan protein powder, and a cup of PG Tips [tea]."

    "I'm 90% plant-based, so I'll only eat a really good piece of red meat maybe once a month. I sometimes look at a cow and think, That's the most beautiful thing ever," Bloom explained.

    “At some point in time, we'll look back and not be able to believe we used to eat meat,” he continued. "Then I'll have a shower and get dressed. I like to make an effort. No tracksuit bottoms."

    Bloom’s interview went viral shortly after it was published, and his fans didn’t hesitate to share their comments on Twitter.

    I one day hope I find someone who looks at me the way Orlando Bloom looks at cows.

    While speaking on the radio show, Bloom said he didn’t take the backlash from his interview too seriously.

    "I mean, I was asked what was my porridge recipe," he said. "And by the way, vanilla in your porridge will take it to the next level. Trust me."

    As for his brain octane oil recipe, well, "that's really just two teaspoons of sugar," he revealed. "Don't tell anyone."

    It's great that Bloom has found a routine that works for him — but in general, everyone should do whatever makes them feel good in the morning, which is always good to remember.
