Did You Know?
Orlando Bloom has swinophobia, which is a fear of pigs!
Swinophobia, a fear that is currently on the rise, refers rather unsurprisingly to the fear of pigs. Its name is derived from the word “swine”, which in turn originates from the Old English word “swīn”. It is not only a general fear of pigs, but can sometimes extend to a disliking of or even a paralysing fear of pork.
Orlando Bloom, who is known for his good looks, his supermodel wife, and his role in Pirates of the Carribean, possesses a fear of pigs.
Orlando Bloom’s swinophobia became known when he was filming Kingdom of Heaven, at which time a pig ran loose on set and Bloom “ran like crazy.”
