Meditation helped me to cope with sudden fame: Orlando Bloom

Press Trust of India  |  London 

Actor Orlando Bloom says meditation helps him cope with stardom and keeps him sane.

The 40-year-old actor, who is a practising Buddhist, says he is able to maintain grace and integrity because of meditation, reported Femalefirst.

"(I meditate every day), it allows me to set my intention for the day. It helped me to cope with my sudden rise to celebritydom, a process a little bit like getting inside a burning car.

"You see these victims all around you - 15 minutes of fame, a YouTube sensation, whatever it may be. They don't realise what it takes. What you want to do is learn how to suit up and get out of that burning car with grace, ease, and integrity," Bloom says.
