The actor has talked readers through his average day as part of a regular feature in The Sunday Times.

In the interview, Bloom discusses his relationship with his daughter, Daisy Dove, his Buddhist faith, and his food and exercise regime.

Many quotes from the interview have gone viral on Twitter.

Those include Bloom’s explanation about his diet.

“I like to earn my breakfast so I’ll just have some green powders that I mix with brain octane oil, a collagen powder for my hair and nails, and some protein. It’s all quite LA, really,” he says.

The actor says that he is “90 per cent plant-based” and only eats red meat very occasionally.

“I sometimes look at a cow and think, that’s the most beautiful thing ever,” he adds.

Readers also picked up on the fact Bloom notes that he spends a “lot of my time dreaming about roles” for himself and others, citing “minorities and women”.

“Genuinely thought the Orlando Bloom interview in The Sunday Times was a spoof. Is it really not?” one person tweeted.

“I admire ‘myself, minorities and women’ as the categories of people to advance!” another person teased.

One person wrote that “nobody does satire quite like Orlando Bloom”.
