The picture showed a younger Bloom wearing a when twosome while riding a bicycle, and flipside increasingly recent image presented him in full-on cycling gear while cruising lanugo a road. He wrote in an twin caption:

“That’s me in my when twosome circa 1998 well-nigh 3months without I fell 3floors and crushed my spine, narrowly escaping death and paralysis… grateful everyday for my limbs that indulge me to push my limits and live life on my whet (safer now).”

His fiancée Katy Perry commented on the post, writing:

“I love you.”

Meanwhile, ex-wife Miranda Kerr said she was “so proud” of the Carnival Row star. This isn’t the first time that Bloom has shared details well-nigh the 1998 fall. In an old profile with GQ, the father of two revealed that he was climbing a roof terrace with friends when the drainpipe he grasped onto suddenly collapsed:

“Until then, I didn’t have a healthy appreciation for life and death — that we’re not invincible. And for four days, I faced the idea of living in a wheelchair for the rest of my life. I went to some visionless places in my mind. I realized, I’m either going to walk then or I’m not.”

The Pirates of the Caribbean licentiate continued:

“The doctor said he wasn’t sure how severe the spinalcord forfeiture was. I remember him telling me that, and staring at the ceiling, thinking, I never stared at ceilings before! And I wonder if I’m going to be looking at ceilings for the rest of my life.”

Despite Bloom recovering without spending weeks in the hospital, he confessed that the wrecking ultimately reverted his view on life, explaining:

“When I came out of the hospital, I started partying straight yonder — with the when twosome on. It took me a couple of months to realize this was my life, and I didn’t want to mess it up. But that wrecking has informed everything in my life. Until you’re tropical to losing it, you don’t realize. I used to ride motorbikes and momentum cars like everything was a racetrack; it was ridiculous. It wasn’t considering I thought it was cool; it was just considering I loved living on the edge. But I’ve chilled.”

Don’t worry, though! Orlando hasn’t fully tamed his wild side! We mean, no one can forget well-nigh those skinny-dipping pictures. Ch-ch-check it out (below):

In all seriousness, Bloom was certainly lucky to have made it out alive! Reactions, Perezcious readers? Let us know in the comments (below).
