How did that make you feel?

Remember that time Orlando Bloom blessed the Earth by going paddleboarding completely nude? When he not only gave us all the looks we could ever possibly want of his (ahem) little Orlando Bloom, but also made this brave statement that we should all be comfortable enough in our skin to do freeing things like paddle around the ocean completely in the buff?

Turns out Katy Perry, his girlfriend at the time, was far less down with that than we were.

In fact, that incident sounds like it was kind of damaging to her. After the whole internet saw her BF's junk on Twitter, Perry had to seek out professional help.

"I've had lots of therapy about that moment," Perry told KIIS FM's Kyle and Jackie O. "He asked me if I wanted to be [naked] and... it was one of those things where I was like, ‘Oh, nah.' He was just trying to show off for the people back at the shore... It was so funny because I was kind of explaining Twitter to him and social media because he had taken a bit of a break on all that stuff. I had been explaining to him for a few weeks and all of a sudden he's the No. 1 trending on Twitter. He's like, 'I understand Twitter.'"

For the record, Bloom tells a different story about that "showing off" part — he insists he didn't know anyone could see them.

"It was extremely surprising; I wouldn't have put myself in that position if I'd thought it would happen," he told Elle UK. "I've been photographed a million times in a million different ways. I have a good radar. We'd been completely alone for five days. Nothing around us. There was no way anyone could get anything. So I had a moment of feeling free... What can I tell you? Note to self: you're never free. Ha!"
