Orlando Bloom had to introduce his son Flynn to Will Turner one day!
Sitting down with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show on Wednesday to promote Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, the actor explained how he finally let his and ex Miranda Kerr‘s six-year-old watch him in the franchise…
Only he didn’t think it might traumatize him!
“I was very reluctant, because obviously you want to keep that normalcy and that dynamic, and I didn’t want him to know what dad did for a while. But then he started school and I was like, ‘Well, older brothers and sisters…’ The movie was coming out and they’ll talk about it, and I wanted to have that moment of showing him me in Pirates of the Caribbean. So, last summer I was in France. It was on a little TV; it wasn’t a big grand screen or anything at all. But I just flicked it on and he was watching it.”
And it turns out, Flynn had THE BEST reaction!!
“I had a video camera on him as he was watching. He was like, ‘Wait, that’s you! What? That’s you?’ He was a little disgruntled, which I was freaked out about, because I was like, ‘Wait! I should have spoken to a child therapist before I even thought about doing this. What was I thinking? This was a bad idea!’ And then he loved it. He was like, ‘So, wait a second: How long can you hold your breath under water for? Did you really do that?’ Like, ‘Yeah, bro! Forever! I could walk from one side of the ocean to the other.’ Because he still believes that!”
Also, can we just talk about how Bloom calls his son “bro” because that is too much!
