Billie Eilish has revealed she thought Orlando Bloom was “just some dude” after she was introduced to him at a concert.

In Eilish’s new documentary film The World’s a Little Blurry, which has dropped on Apple TV+ today (26 February), the “Bad Guy” singer is shown meeting Bloom and his fiancee Katy Perry at Coachella.

Perry introduces Bloom, 44, as her “fiance”, yet does not name him. Bloom tells Eilish, 19, that he is a big fan of her music, to which Eilish gives her thanks. Immediately after, Eilish is seen asking who he was.

“Orlando Bloom!” says Eilish’s older brother Finneas O’Connell. “He played Will Turner in f***ing Pirates of the Caribbean.”

“That guy?” Eilish replies. “That was him? No way! Bring him back! I wanna meet him again. He kissed me on the cheek!”

In another scene, Eilish is seen Googling pictures of “Orlando Bloom”.

“I did not know that was him,” she says. “I thought that was just some dude Katy Perry met.”

The pair later have a proper introduction, with Bloom embracing Eilish and saying: “This is the universe hugging you. I’m giving you so much love and light right now.”

Perry and Bloom have been engaged since 2019, and their daughter was born last year.

The World’s a Little Blurry chronicles Eilish’s life and career and her rapid ascend to fame.

Speaking to The Independent, the film’s director RJ Cutler described the documentary as reflecting “the life moment where you have one foot in childhood and one in adulthood”.
