Period piece actor Orlando Bloom received an honorary degree from the University of Kent on Monday and stood alongside other graduates for the ceremony at Canterbury Cathedral. Being an actor has its privileges, like an honorary, free degree, complete with all the pomp and circumstance and none of the homework and term papers! "It's a really big deal. It's an exciting day for me. I'm really honored to be back in my hometown. I have so many amazing memories of the cathedral and Canterbury," Bloom told the BBC.
"I have lived near the university so it's like my playground. It's a huge, huge honor and I feel chuffed, as does my mother -- nobody more than my mother."
Congrats to Bloom. On what, I have no idea.
