Orlando Bloom has made quite an impression on fans after giving us all a peak inside his privileged, super-pure Californian life with singer Katy Perry and new baby Daisy in what sounds like life at a luxury detox spa. 

The Lord of the Rings star told The Sunday Times about his plant-based LA life which starts with a concoction of green powders and octaine oil - could this be the reason for his flowing locks? -  followed by a hike, a mastermind of a superfood breakie and a fairytale guide to parenting. 

He began: "I wake up at around 6.30. I have a smart ring sleep tracker and the first thing I do is look at the app to see if I’ve had a good sleep and check my readiness for the day...

"It’s amazing to be a father again. There’s less anxiety this time and more presence. I’m a Capricorn, so I crave routine. Fortunately my partner is really into that too.

"I chant for 20 minutes every day, religiously. I’ve had a Buddhist practice since I was 16, so that’s infiltrated my whole being.

"I like to earn my breakfast so I’ll just have some green powders that I mix with brain octane oil, a collagen powder for my hair and nails, and some protein. It’s all quite LA, really. Then I’ll go for a hike while I listen to some Nirvana or Stone Temple Pilots.

"By 9am it’s breakfast, which is usually porridge, a little hazelnut milk, cinnamon, vanilla paste, hazelnuts, goji berries, a vegan protein powder and a cup of PG Tips.

"I’m 90 per cent plant-based, so I’ll only eat a really good piece of red meat maybe once a month. I sometimes look at a cow and think, that’s the most beautiful thing ever.

"Lunch is mostly plant-based again, vegetables or a stew. I will cook at times but otherwise there’s a team of people. Then I’ll have a Zoom and read scripts."

Twitter has gone wild after hearing his decadent morning routine, with users commenting: 'I'm having Cheerios and I earnt them by merely existing."

"This man child is clearly suffering from a serious case of overgrown baby syndrome."

"Some hilarious stuff in there. I hope it was intentional or he needs to have a word with his publicist."

"I would love it if he'd added 'we give Daisy a pizza from Iceland with oven chips and plonk her in front of CBeebies while we open a couple of cans of Red Stripe."

Another added: "Woke up after a lie in and saw the TL full of Orlando Bloom's morning regime. I shambled to the kitchen and made a tea accompanied by a stick of Kinder Bueno. There are no right answers."

One user added: "Orlando Bloom: I like to earn my breakfast. Me: lurches out of bed at 5am, regrets it immediately, eats three breakfasts in a row to make things better'."

Another wrote: 'Wondered why Orlando Bloom was trending so read this after lurching out of bed at 10.50 then drinking three cups of tea, and eating a bacon butty and a Toffee Crisp."
