Scoop: Orlando Bloom lets it all hang out, to the notice of many

Folks are having a field day in response to photos of a very naked Orlando Bloom on the beach with bikini-clad girlfriend Katy Perry.

When the 39-year-old actor let it all hang out during a paddleboard session in Italy, he was caught by paparazzi in his birthday suit, and the images are all over the internet.

Many of the best jokes about his exposed bits have something to do with promotion, with multiple online comments to the effect: “Now I know why Katy Perry called her new song ‘Rise.’”

Other remarks came from Zach Braff (“Orlando Bloom’s penis is having a better vacation than me”); Andy Cohen: (”Orlando Bloom has a nice can”) and Comedy Central: “He’s researching for his new movie ‘Privates of the Caribbean.’”

The New York Daily News went a step farther to compile a list of fellows whose packages are (or were) as impressive.

It includes: Daniel Craig, Jon Hamm, Wilt Chamberlain, Tommy Lee, David Beckham, Michael Fassbinder, Milton Berle, Jared Leto, Liam Neeson, Lyndon B. Johnson and Frank Sinatra.


Sasha Obama’s summer job is raising a few eyebrows: The 15-year-old First Daughter has been working at Nancy’s Restaurant, a seafood spot on Martha’s Vineyard, the Boston Herald reports.

It’s a far cry from the more glamorous jobs once held by her older sis Malia, including working on HBO show “Girls” with Lena Dinham last year, and as a production assistant on the short-lived Halle Berry series “Extant.” (Side note: Malia, 18, has been making the news lately for sexy dancing at Lollapalooza and skipping the Democratic National Convention — but can you blame her?)

Sasha, who has been working morning takeout shifts and wearing the khakis-and-ball cap company uniform, has been going by “Natasha” and being guarded by multiple Secret Service agents.

“We were wondering why there were six people helping this girl, but then we found out who it was,” a worker told the Herald.


David Huddleston, a character actor whose most famous role was the title character in “The Big Lebowski” died at age 85 in Santa Fe, N.M. … Preparing for the big games in Rio, petite U.S.gymnast Simone Biles tweeted a fun photo of herself with lanky U.S. volleyball player David Lee, with the caption: “Size difference in Olympians doesn’t matter, depending on what sport you do — 6’8” and 4’8”.”


Actor Jesse Williams is 36. … Actor Jonathan Silverman is 50. … Novelist David Baldacci is 56. … Actress Maureen McCormick is 60. … Singer Rick Derringer is 69. … Actress Erica Slezak is 70. … Actress Loni Anderson is 71.
