British actor Orlando Bloom posted a video of himself fearlessly paddleboarding alongside a great white shark on Tuesday 14 September. 

‘WHEN FEAR BECOMES YOUR FRIEND’ 

The Pirates of the Caribbean star posted a one-minute long video to Instagram which shows the great white shark swimming beside him and at one point below him as he continues to fearlessly paddleboard. 

The actor had on no protective gear in the clip but was instead shirtless, showing off his toned physique.

“Paddle Boarding With Great Whites. When fear becomes your friend and @themalibuartist captures the moment. ,” wrote Bloom on Instagram. 

From a comment by the photographer who took the video, it seems Orlando Bloom was out paddle boating in Malibu, California. 

“Awesome day man! You got some good looks of a large juvenile white shark. Happy for you! Something you’ll never forget. Very calm shark just chilling in Malibu!,” wrote @themalibuartist.

Instagrammers took to the comments section of the post to express how brave they thought the actor is. While rapper 2 Chainz implied that he was not as close to as brave as Orlando was.

“Helllll naw,” wrote @2Chainz.

ORLANDO BLOOM IN THE FLESH

Another Instagrammer mentioned the time Orlando Bloom went paddleboarding nude.

“Yep we all remember the other paddle boarding picture ,” wrote @zowie.oz.

This was back in 2016. The actor was photographed by the paparazzi off the coast of Sardinia kneeling in the nude on a paddle board with his fiancée Katy Perry. The picture surfaced onto Twitter and fans had a field day. 

“It was extremely surprising. I wouldn’t have put myself in that position if I’d thought it would happen.I’ve been photographed a million times in a million ways. I have a good radar. We’d been completely alone for five days. Nothing around us. There was no way anyone could get anything. So I had a moment of feeling free,” said Bloom to Elle UK about the paparazzi snap.

More recently, in August this year, the father of three went skinny dipping in a lake and posted a picture of his bare behind with nothing but a peach emoji to cover up. Swipe left to have a look.
