Orlando Bloom unfazed by paddleboard shark encounter

Bloom's shark encounter

The Lord of the Rings star Orlando Bloom has had a scary close encounter with a great white shark while paddleboarding off the California coast.

On Tuesday, Bloom shared an incredible video of himself paddling off the coast of Malibu, unaware a large shark was circling below him.

The actor tagged shutterbug pal Carlos Gauna, who shot the clip, in his Instagram post, writing in his caption: "Paddle Boarding With Great Whites. When fear becomes your friend and @themalibuartist captures the moment," along with three shark emojis and a "flushed face" graphic.

"Awesome day man," Carlos commented on his pal's post. "You got some good looks of a large juvenile white shark. Happy for you! Something you'll never forget. Very calm shark just chilling in Malibu!"

And Rapper 2 Chainz added, "Helllll naw (sic)", while several fans recalled another famous paddleboarding moment for Orlando, when he was snapped in the nude with then-girlfriend Katy Perry in 2016.
