Actor Orlando Bloom was appointed a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in 2009, in recognition of his commitment to the rights of children around the world. Although recently appointed, he has visited UNICEF programmes in Nepal, the Russian Federation, and Bosnia and Herzegovina since 2007.
James Franco's new comedy The Interview is on its way, and to celebrate, E! Online released released a clip of the actor in character "interviewing" Orlando Bloom. In the wonderful promo clip, James sits down with "Sir" Orlando Bloom on his talk show, Skylark Tonight, but proves he isn't really the best host after all. In fact, he's completely clueless, and never gets to the subject at hand. And yet, this video the most amazing thing you'll see all day.
The world premiere for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies will make its worldwide debut in London on December 1, 2014. See a special video announcement featuring Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Orlando Bloom, Richard Armitage and Luke Evans:

Hat trick for Herne Bay and Orlando Bloom named icon at awards
IT WAS a hat trick for Herne Bay at the East Kent Culture Awards ceremony tonight (Thursday).
Last year’s Marcel Duchamp festival won three of the four categories it was nominated for in an evening that also saw Hollywood heartthrob Orlando Bloom named Kent’s Cultural Icon.
The winners were announced at a gala dinner at the University of Kent hosted by lecturer and comedian Oliver Double.
Duchamp festival organisers Sue Austen and Jason Hollingsworth said they were delighted with their wins - including one decided by public vote.
The three-week celebration of artist Marcel Duchamp's visit to Herne Bay 100 years ago, when he famously wrote "I am not dead, I am in Herne Bay", included a trail of decorated bikes and a giant urinal that featured in the town's carnival.
They tweeted: “Amazing night. 4 nominations and 3 wins. We are definitely not dead, herne bay is alive and we salute all our fellow nominees thank you.”
The Bay had already broken records by attracting five nominations in the awards, organised by the university and Canterbury City Council to celebrate the best creative work in the region. The fifth was for the Bright Shadow theatre company, based at Beach Creative.
Canterbury band Coco and the Butterfields - who performed as part of the Duchamp Festival - were named One to Watch, while previous winner, singer songwriter Luke Jackson, performed at the ceremony.
The Jasmin Vardimon Dance Company also won three awards, including the artist award, while Animate and Create, which stages the popular Anifest in the city each year, was also a winner in two categories.
The underpants of Canterbury film star Orlando Bloom are being auctioned off online, in an effort to raise money for Relate: East Kent.
The pants, which were worn by Mr Bloom while he was filming ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl’, was donated by the charity’s chairman, Willy Cooper, who got them from the actor’s mother, Sonia Copeland Bloom.
With bidding starting at £199.99, the boxers come with a signed original photo of Orlando, and a note of verification from his mum, reading:
“Certificate of Authentification for bathing shorts of patchwork pattern made by Polo Sport Ralph Lauren worn by Orlando Bloom for bathing while filming Pirates of the Caribbean. Signed Sonia Copeland Bloom (mother) January 2010.”
Katheryn Parker, who runs the virtual store for Relate, said the auction was meant to celebrate the launch of the new celebrity page:
“We’ve auctioned items online before, but this is the first time we’ve had a celebrity item like this. We get a lot of memorabilia donated to our charity shop, and now we’re researching it all. You never know what it might be worth to someone.”
The auction, which was started on Wednesday morning, has yet to draw any bidders. But with more than a week to go until the June 21 deadline, organisers at the charity are hoping for a price war.
