The 40-year-old actor joined his Lord of the Rings co-stars Elijah Wood, Dominic Monaghan, Billy Boyd and Viggo Mortensen for a reunion that included a pretty epic photo of the men attempting to use silverware as bow and arrows. "They have a cave troll," Monaghan captioned the pic.
In the wildly popular film franchise, Bloom played the elf Legolas, Wood portrayed Frodo, Monaghan was Merry, Boyd played Pippin, and Mortensen was the handsome Aragorn.
In celebration of Bloom's 40th birthday earlier this month, ET dug up some flashback footage of the actor from a 2001 interview where he talked about the bond he shared with his Lord of the Rings co-stars.
“I arrived with Billy Boyd [and] I was like, ‘Let's buy mountain bikes. Let's buy motorbikes. Let's just have something, so that when we have time outside of work we can sort of exercise and expand your mind and do stuff or whatever,’” Bloom said. “But he was like, ‘No. I don't want to kill myself before we even get filming.’ I was like, ‘OK, cool.’ But I said, ‘What about surfing?’”
“So we bought surfboards that day, went in [with] a couple of wetsuits, a couple of boards,” he continued. “Went down and just learned to surf. And got everyone involved. It was great. Everyone was surfing. We had the fellowship all with us. It was great fun.”
