Orlando Bloom Muses On Romance & ROMEO & JULIET
Popular screen performer and Broadway newcomer Orlando Bloom takes on the hallowed male title role in the most recent Broadway revival of William Shakespeare's classic romantic tragedy Romeo & Juliet and the star opens up about his own romantic experiences and the play itself as part of a new interview.
Asked if he believes in love at first sight, Bloom relates, "Totally. I'm completely in love with the idea of love. Maybe I'm all misty about it because I'm playing Romeo. But I really believe in, you know, that sort of heart-to-heart connection."
So, does Bloom himself have any Romeo-esque moves meant to impress potential paramours, then? Bloom asserts, "I'm not that smooth. To a stranger, I'd just say, 'This sounds crazy, but would you like to grab a coffee? I want to talk to you.'"
And, Bloom relates, that often worked well to his advantage.
"It was occasionally successful. But I definitely got the odd knock-back," he says of responses he has received.
Furthermore, Bloom shares what he feels is Romeo's most romantic and swoon-worthy moment of them all.
"In the balcony scene: 'I am no pilot; yet, wert thou as far as that vast shore wash'd with the farthest sea, I would adventure for such merchandise'," Bloom shares.
