Hollywood star Orlando Bloom admits that he had a crush on actress Cate Blanchett while shooting for 'Lord of the Rings' movie. In an episode of 'The Late Late Show with James Corden' Orlando revealed the same which was being recorded in London.
I had such a crush. I had the biggest crush on you
The 41-year-old actor recalls the first impression of Blanchett as when she was playing Galadriel and he was portraying Legolas in the film, Bloom said: "I can't think -- I had such a crush. I had the biggest crush on you."
However, this crush was not mutual as Cate overshadowed Bloom's feelings by saying "Well, it was your character!" who is 5-years elder than Orlando.
Orlando backed his feelings by exclaiming, "No, it was me!" The actor also added that he about 21-years old when they first met and he was very intimidated by Blanchett's role.
"What was I, 110?" the 49-year old Blanchett replied with humour. She added, "I didn't recognise you, because the first time I saw you, you had hair -- like Fabio hair and blue eyes. And then I just saw you -- who is this really cute guy out of drama school -- and I didn't put two and two together."
Bloom added how he used to spy on the actress, "And I was just walking around spying on her from the corner of the room -- in a non creepy way."
On the work front, Orlando was last seen in 2017 hit-movie, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.
