I got another interview! - One of the "substitute people" — LiveJournal
Can I substitute for Kirsten?
I got another interview!
This one from jenlynn820. *rubs hands together in anticipation*

1. What is about Orlando Bloom that makes you love him so much?
That's actually a tough, multi-part answer. Okay, I start with the obvious. He's beautiful and um... yeah... I can be shallow in that way. But he exudes such a zest for life, like he's grabbed on tight with both hands and refuses to let go. He seems genuine and loving, compassionate and caring. I know he was especially nice to me on an individual basis when I met him, but I also know that personal appearances are still "work" for celebs. But the eyes don't lie. I love that he's so obviously thankful for what he has and what he's accomplished and he really cares are his fans--it's right there in those big brown soulful eyes. And his smile--I love it!! When it's full and wide and real--I'm all over that! I also love his ability to change, yet remain the same guy--whether in his roles or in day-to-day life. His comedic timing has me in stitches. His humanitarian pursuits. His love of family--including Sidi. His sweetness and his ability to retain his innoccence, though sadly, it seems to be fading. I also love his willingness to help like One.org and Global Green, etc. Basically, I love everything about this guy--well--except that damn mohawk and I blame Liv for *that* particular fiasco, and thank god *that's* over! ;)

2. What's your favorite moment in Elizabethtown and why?
I've got to answer this in 3 parts.
1. For sight alone, the moment the flips closed that phone and smiles at Claire after they meet up at Otter Creek. It makes me melt.
2. For the geek quality, dancing in that damn Brown Hotel robe with the green socks--something I figure he picked out and used to make the character his own. No one else in t heir right mind would be wearing those socks! No one except our Orli!
3. The moment he realizes Claire is gone from his bed and he runs to the window to look for her. That lighting and subject matter is a pohotographers wet dream! I'd give my lense for that moment and the pleausre of capturing it!

AND HOW CAN ANYONE EXPECT *ME* (of all people) TO PICK JUST ONE MOMENT?!?!??? There's getting lost and banging the steerng wheel, his smile at the sharpened knife, his eye rolling at flight attendant Claire's "I'll draw you a map" comment, his smile when he's dreaming of his dad, his hesitant touch of his father's still hand, rescuing the "loudest kid in the world", his teasing Claire at Cave Hill Cemetery, the sad smile he gives Claire in the lobby while clutching his father's urn, His admiration of his mom, the look of respect on his face at the site of Dr. Martin Luther King's death and Oklahoma City bombing... You get where I'm going with this, yeah? LOL

It would be easier to ask me if there's any scenes I don't like! And yes, there's one that makes me cringe every time. LOL

3. Drew Baylor aside, who is your favorite Orlando Bloom character?
OY!! Man... you ask the hard ones! I honestly don't know if it's Will Turner or Paris. Let's call it a draw. Leggy and Balian too. Though the more I see Kingdom of Heaven, Balian may ultimately win this. Just not Joe Byrne. That hideous fur on his face makes me want to hurl. (sorry to any JB/Ned Kelly fans)

4. What's your favorite thing to do when you really want to have a good time?
Read while out the sun with a nice cool breeze blowing. Easy and free. Well, except for the printer cartridge and paper costs for printing out my beloved fanfic. ;)

5. What's the one place you wish you could go on vacation?
Anywhere. Seriously. With no money, going to the grocery is practically an occasion to send a postcard.

I HAVE to ask!! *grins* There's a scene in etown that makes you cringe??

I had to laugh so hard about the 'green sock' thing. I didn't notice, so now I'll have to watch the movie again. Blast! *grins*

The scene that makes me shudder is the talk in the ballroom when they've gone to "show Mitch the site of his memorial" where Drew is telling her that Ben is "bad" and "what I'm saying is good." Until he picks up that piece of paper to tell her what she "deserves" I just want to die from embarrassment. LOL

And notice the other socks--the one he's washing out while on the phone to Claire. They're white with red and yellow toes and heels. *Those* have to be his too! LOL I used to be called "the sock queen" in the 80's, so I notice these things. ;)

I'm laughing like crazy about the sock thing!! :-)

And I had a feeling that would be the scene and couldn't agree more. I had the same thing with a scene from Troy where he's talking to Helena and 'rolls his eyes'. I can't watch that. *laughs*

I'm with Elle... 'fess up there, which one makes you cringe? I have a scene that makes me almost embarrassed for him as an actor... looking to see if it's the same one...
araestel From: araestel Date: April 16th, 2006 05:50 pm (UTC) (Link)
I tell you mine if you tell me yours....

It's the "Ben is bad" scene in the ballroom where he says "who serially takes advantage of you". God--kill me now. LOL

"who serially takes advantage of you".

God, it took me forever to figure out what he was saying. The word serially, I was like, what?? Seriously? Surely? What is he saying? Is he just mangling a word? :P Then I was reading the etown script one day while working on my fic and I saw that it was serially and I was like ohhhhhhhhhhhh :P

:) Thanks for playing! Aww, so what scene is it that makes you cringe? :P

It's a tie for me between Balian and Drew I guess. Although I also love Legolas... But for me Balian is his sexiest character...could be cause it's the only one where he actually seems heterosexual and I find myself thinking dirty things about him :P You have no received entirely too much information...

Paris is just beautiful. Screw the rest of the dialogue and movie and screw Helen. *Paris* is the face that could launch a thousand ships! He's his most beautiful there--no longer a teen but not fully into his maturity. I want to sink my fingers into his curls, caress those naked firm golden thighs, part those rosy lips and stroke, uh oh--this now needs a rating warning. ;) LOL

Balian *is* sexy as hell. So gentle, yet forceful. Trustworthy and strong. Compassionate and ooohhhh yeah.... Ahem... sorry. ;) maybe I need a moment of composure time here. Bwahaaaaaa.

The one scene in E-town that makes me cringe is "And what I'm saying is good." You know... *THAT* horribly done scene that makes me wince. It doesn't pick up again until he does the "See, I know what you need".

Yeah.. I know what you need Drew... heh heh
jenlynn820 From: jenlynn820 Date: April 16th, 2006 05:46 pm (UTC) (Link)
I think he was at his most beautiful as Paris. The hair, his face... yeah, he's gorgeous, almost too gorgeous :P

Aww, yeah, that scene is kinda awkward, lol.

Yeah.. I know what you need Drew... heh heh

I think he needs to get his brains shagged out by a nice guy :P But that's me ;)

see Paris is way too much of a pussy to be my favorite man. I think I like Orlando when he is Orlando the most. If I had to pick the movie he looks best in. I guess I'd pick KOH. Balian is one sexy mother fucker. Not that you asked or anything, lol. good answers though, i love these interviews.
araestel From: araestel Date: April 16th, 2006 08:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
Damn skippy he's sexy! LOL But Paris just does things to me and then throw Hector into the mix... ROWR. Orlando is just absolute perfection to me in "Trroy"--not the film, not the lines, not the cinematography, not the scenes--but Orlando. MY GOD he makes me whimper. No lie. LOL

But then seeing Balian with all that hair and those muscles and strength of character? ROWR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, I whimper there too. LOL

In other words--I'm easy.

And these interviews are fun!

how can someone not love that man? i really think its the hair. it has magical powers or something. i hope that whore kate knows how lucky she is. i mean she gets to look at that everyday *points to icon*

OMG I loved your answers. LOL thank you for sharing. I would have to agree with the facts on why you love the man so much. Even though my time was limited with him with everyone else around I enjoyed it and would do it all over again if I had the chance. He's a wonderful person. :D
araestel From: araestel Date: April 18th, 2006 06:39 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thank you! Glad you did!

I enjoyed the small frame of time I had with him. I hope to share a moment in time with him again some day.

belil_gaviel From: belil_gaviel Date: April 19th, 2006 08:20 am (UTC) (Link)
I would love to be able to have those kinds of moments with him too. I'm sure we'll be able to see him again. ;0)
