In a new documentary, five-time Grammy Award winner Billie Eilish shared the moment she met actor Orlando Bloom at Coachella in 2019 and had no idea who he was.
The new documentary titled “Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry” chronicled how Eilish met Katy Perry and her fiance, Bloom, backstage and sadly, had no idea who he was.
After the meeting, Eilish admitted to asking her brother, Finneas, who Bloom was. Finneas then explained that Bloom played the character Will Turner in “Pirates of the Caribbean.”
Opportunity Comes But Twice
Finneas then showed his sister, Eilish, a viral photo of Perry and Bloom paddle boarding in 2016. The photo got the singer’s attention, and she begged to meet Bloom again.
In a chat with her mom, she excitedly shared that Bloom had kissed her on the cheek, and at the time, she thought he was a random guy Perry just met.
Fortunately, the “Everything I Wanted” singer got to meet Orlando again right before she went on stage, as she ran into the iconic actor on his way to the bathroom.
A Guardian Angel
During the second encounter, Eilish again got a kiss on the cheek, and Bloom told her that he is sending her so much love and light. They went on their way after exchanging endearments.
Eilish also got some valuable tips from Perry during the Coachella concert. The “Roar” singer told the teenager that it would be wild and crazy for years to come, but she will always be there if Eilish ever wanted to talk.
The offer of guidance was a sweet one considering Perry was once in Eilish’s shows.
Billie Eilish Shares Her Childhood Fears
In the documentary, the teenage chart-topper also gave fans a sneak peek into her childhood home.
The video clip showed the Grammy Award winner in her childhood home, where she recorded her first hit with her brother, Finneas. She shared that she slept in her parent’s beds because she was scared of monsters.
The footage also featured the singer’s parents, who were supportive of her throughout her meteoric rise to fame. In a voice-over, the proud mom wondered how any young artist is doing it all without a parent’s support.
Crafting Art Through Pain
The documentary was directed and managed R.J Cutler and will feature concert videos, home footage, and the artist’s interviews.
Eilish explained that she understood that everyone was going through something, and she thought to turn her problems into art instead of just living with them.
She also spoke about her unique relationship with her fans. During a concert, she encouraged them “to be okay, as they are the reason she is okay.” In January 2021, the singer opened up about her struggles with negative body image with Vanity Fair.
