Orlando Bloom Too Drunk to Greet Caribbean Prime Minister, sfgate.com (US), July 30, 2003
Orlando Bloom only has hazy memories of the time he met a Caribbean Prime
Minister -- because he was so drunk.
Orlando flew with his "Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl"
co-star Johnny Depp and the movie's producer Jerry Bruckheimer to meet St
Vincent's Prime Minister Keith Mitchell, but the hard-drinking stars ended up
disgracing themselves infront of the politician.
The British star laughs, "Jerry was up at the front of the plane with his
wife, and me and Johnny and Johnny's friend Sam were at the back of the plane
and we sat there and drank red wine.
"I don't know, maybe the altitude had something to do with it, but when we
got to the island we just, like, crawled off the plane, staggering."
He continues, "The Prime Minister was there to meet us and he goes, 'Hey man,
very pleased to introduce you to St. Vincent.' Johnny's friend crawled past him,
didn't even stop, Johnny gave him a huge hug and kept kissing him.
"And there's me trailing after Johnny picking up all the stuff he kept
dropping. It was crazy."
