New York (ANI): British actor Orlando Bloom has opened up about his
previously undisclosed battle with dyslexia. During a talk at the
Child Mind Institute with Dr. Harold Koplewicz, the Lord of the
Rings star talked about his ongoing struggle.
"It's still an ongoing struggle," the New York Daily News quoted
him as saying. "I have more trouble studying scripts and memorizing
lines than most [other actors]," he added.
However, the actor also admitted to a packed audience at
Rockefeller University, which included his lady love, Miranda Kerr,
that his mother used to help him overcome his problem. "My mom used
to tell me, If you read 50 books, I'll get you a motorbike," he
"So it inspired me to read a lot and work through [my dyslexia].
But I never quite got to 50. And I never got that motorbike," he
