Orlando Bloom soaks in the Australian wildlife and buddies up with Josh Gad while cleaning a beach


Orlando Bloom and his fiancée Katy Perry picked up and moved their family to Australia in mid-June while he shot his latest film, Wizards, alongside the likes of Naomi Scott and Pete Davidson.

Over the course of the next six weeks, Bloom has taken to Instagram and shared images of the country’s incredible wildlife, along with glimpses at his rigorous workout routines.

And over the weekend, the Lord Of The Rings alum followed up again with more photos and videos of himself soaking in Mother Nature’s offerings Down Under, only this time he got to enjoy the company of his friend, actor Josh Gad.

The two old pals snuggled up next to each other for a photo taken on the beach with a gorgeous sunset in the backdrop.

Dressed in a white T-shirt and black baseball cap, Bloom flashed a beaming smile as he wrapped his right arm over the Frozen star’s shoulder.

Bloom, 45, had spent part of the day cleaning up some of the garbage that had accumulated in and around the beach.

‘friend’s become family werk-outs & beach cleaning WILD wildlife @australia you gotta lot to offer,’ the British-born actor wrote in the caption of the post, which also included a photo of himself standing next to three bags filled with rubbish like plastic bottles and cups.

Bloom’s interest in the Australian wildlife wouldn’t be complete without getting to see a kangaroo up close and personal.

And from the looks of his video post, it appears as though the actor went to an animal shelter of some kind and got to cradle a baby kangaroo in his arms.

‘Hi buddy. You are just the coolest little gut. Aren’t you amazing,’ he said while petting the animal, which are indigenous to Australia, as well as New Guinea.

He also posted a video of a group of sharks that had gathered near the shore of the beach as the sun gave way to the evening, as well as a photo of a few beautiful birds walking along near a roadway.

Bloom has been shredding his body into tip-top shape while filming Wizards, as seen in another clip of him doing some stretching exercises.

While laying on his side, shirtless and wearing only skimpy black shorts, the Pirates Of The Caribbean star flaunted his ripped abs and overall toned physique.

For his role in Wizards, he had his dark brown hair dreaded, which he pulled up into a loose bun while he worked out.

Fans can also get a look at his amazing toned midsection in another photo showing him working with weights on his legs as he does crunches and sit-ups.

Bloom is expected to spend about three months shooting Wizards, alongside Australian director David Michod, which means he will likely be in the country working to about mid-September.
