ORLANDO'S BLOOM IS GREEN


"As a pirate, he looted and pillaged. As a homeowner, he's a lot less fun. Turns out Orlando Bloom, 30, is an environmentalist the way Britney Spears is a train wreck – totally and completely. Bloom told the environmental organization Global Green USA on Wednesday that the home he's building in London will be "as green as I can make it." He spoke at the Global Green Pre-Oscar Party in Los Angeles – which also drew Penelope Cruz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Chevy Chase, James Blunt and members of Maroon 5. The party kicked off an effort to shuttle celebs to Oscar-related events in environmentally friendly cars. "It's got solar panels on the roof, energy efficient light bulbs — newer technology basically that is environmentally friendly," Bloom said of his house after arriving at the shindig in a plug-in hybrid vehicle. Then he preached in that preachy preaching way that environmentalist tend to preach: Turn off the lights before you leave the room, unplug your cell phone chargers and turn off your TV when you're not watching it. "It doesn't have to be overwhelming, there are simple things we can do," he said. (SOURCE US WEEKLY)
