Orlando Bloom gets a tattoo of his dog’s name on his chest
The actor rose to fame through blockbusters, including Lord Of The Rings and the Pirates Of the Caribbean franchises. Bloom, who married Katy Perry five years ago, is a well-established Hollywood figure and has a sprawling £10.2million ($14.2million) home in California. A number of parallels have been drawn between the 44-year-old and Meghan in recent years.
Bloom and Meghan have been sighted at celebrity parties and are believed to be in similar Hollywood circles.
They both attended the wedding of the Duchess’ friend Misha Nonoo, who allegedly set her up with Prince Harry on a blind date.
They have also raised concerns about their treatment by the press in recent years.
During Meghan and Harry’s interview with Oprah, the Sussexes discussed the impact of being in the public spotlight and the effects it had on their mental health.

Similarly, Bloom was “frustrated and angry” when a naked photograph of him on a paddleboard was taken by the paparazzi.
After the 2016 snap of the actor was published by several publications, sources close to Bloom told the Daily Mirror he was “mortified”.
HollywoodLife claimed the star’s wife was “very supportive and understanding of his frustration and anger”.
They claimed Perry was “a calming voice” in the wake of the “embarrassing situation”.

Concern about being in the public eye isn’t the only thing to have united Bloom and Meghan.
On The Tig, a lifestyle blog run by the Duchess until 2017, she regularly divulged health, dietary and fitness tips.
In 2018, Meghan told Best Health that she was “vegan during the week” and then allowed herself “a little bit more flexibility” on the weekend.
Despite restricting her food intake, she was keen to point out: “It’s not a diet, it’s lifestyle eating.”
