Orlando Bloom has starred in several films over the years that remain wonderful memories to the actor, including The Lord of the Rings, and Pirates of the Caribbean, but there’s one movie that he disliked so much that he has blocked it out of his memory.

During an interview for Variety’s “Know Their Lines” video series, Bloom blanked on one of the lines said by his character Paris from Wolfgang Petersen’s 2004 historical epic Troy, and he admitted that he has mostly blocked the movie out of his mind.

“Oh my god, ‘Troy.’ Wow. I think I just blanked that movie out of my brain by the way. So many people love that movie, but for me playing that character was just like [slits throat]. Am I allowed to say all of these things? I didn’t want to do the movie. I didn’t want to play this character.”

He went on:

“The movie was great. It was Brad [Pitt]. It was Eric [Bana] and Peter O’Toole. But how am I going to play this character? It was completely against everything I felt in my being. At one point it says Paris crawls along the floor having been beaten by somebody and holds his brother’s leg. I was like, ‘I’m not going to be able to do this.’ One of my agents at the time said, ‘But that’s the moment that will make it!’ And I completely fell for that line of a agent. I think that’s why I blanked that from my mind.”

It’s too bad that Bloom had a bad experience, but he did a good job in the role, and the movie was pretty fun to watch as well. Troy is streaming now on AMC+.
