Bloom recalled how his excitement was boundless when he was supposed to start filming "The Lord of the Rings" before experiencing any fame or notoriety. After the project, his career has gone a long way.

The actor then began to talk about his most embarrassing moment. According to the BAFTA Britannia Humanitarian Awardee, he was four when he appeared on stage dressed in a monkey costume.

"I turned around, so I wasn't facing the audience and scratched my bottom, which obviously brought the house down," he added. Bloom noted that he believed his stage fight had been caused by it.

After being asked when he last shed a tear, Bloom answered that he lost his poodle named Mighty. He said Mighty was gone for just seven minutes when he went on an adventure and never returned.

A sentimental post on social media shared by the actor expressed his grief at Mighty's passing.

Bloom continued to explain that he believes a coyote stole the dog. "It was awful, really painful; he taught me about love and loyalty and how the connection between living beings can be," he added.

Bloom also revealed that at age 20, he fell from a fourth-floor window and broke his back. It was predicted that he would never walk again after four days, but he miraculously recovered.
