Pirates of the Caribbean, Orlando Bloomâ€™s new film, is a hit — grossing $401m since Wednesday, beating the $ 382m six-day total achieved by Spiderman 3 earlier in the year. However, Bloom has swapped his pirate gear for something a little warmer. Earlier this year, he traveled to Antarctica to see first-hand the damage global warming has inflicted on the ice caps.
The actor was inspired to make a stand after seeing, â€œhow tragically fragile the ice caps are.â€ Bloom insists that the debate about the environment is not all â€œdoom and gloom.â€ He believes that, “Life is about balance, and we all have to make the effort in areas that we can to enable us to make a difference.”
Orlando, a committed environmentalist, was reported to have shared a bathroom and toilet with 27 other individuals, as well carrying out other menial tasks such as dish washing and laundry duties.
