Orlando Bloom

Actor Orlando Bloom has starred in not one but two blockbuster franchises but few know of his struggles with dyslexia. Before he was diagnosed with the disorder at the age of seven, school was a nightmare for the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star. “It was a struggle. It was a lot of work,” Bloom said during his speech at the Child Mind Institute, an organization devoted to children’s mental health. “I had to work three times as hard to get two-thirds of the way. I was frustrated with that learning disability. It makes you feel stupid.”
