The otherwise suave and clean-shaven Orlando Bloom, cut an unglamorous figure when he arrived at the Los Angeles International airport on Saturday, 19 November. Instead of his usual red-carpet savvy style, the Pirates of the Caribbean star was in casual attire with a full bearded face – making him barely recognisable as the Hollywood hunk he is known to be.
The 40-year-old actor touched down at LAX in a pair of baggy sweat pants, round-neck t-shirt and a dark jacket. In order to keep the paparazzi at bay, Bloom even wore a powder-blue cap, adding to his overall low-key avatar.

According to reports, Bloom was on his way back from Prague, where he spent time shooting for his upcoming fantasy drama series, Carnival Row.
Set in the fictional Victorian town of Burgue, the Amazon TV show follows a murder investigation involving mythological inhabitants like drug dealing vampires and fairy prostitutes.
Alongside Bloom, supermodel Cara Delevingne, Game of Thrones actress Indira Varma, David Iyasi, Karla Crome, and Tamzin Merchant also star in the series set for a 2019 premiere.
Dishing about the ambitious project, former Amazon Head of Comedy and Drama, Joe Lewis, said, "There has never been a series like Carnival Row before," according to the Mail Online.
"A simple police investigation will lead us down a remarkable journey in a world where humans and creatures co-exist. We're so excited about what Rene, Travis and Paul are creating and we can't wait to bring it to customers," he added.
Meanwhile, keeping the current climate of Hollywood in mind, Bloom – who has been busy with the promotions of his new movie, Romans – spoke on the topic of sexual abuse at the Rome Film Festival.
"I think that this has been going on for a very long time and it's obviously an incredibly sensitive subject," the actor was quoted as saying by The Hollywood Reporter.
He added, "I think that it's a shakedown. It's a time of real revelation and a lot of people are being revealed for who they've been and what they are and society is now standing up. It's time."
