His morning ritual includes drinking brain octane oil and directing Buddhist chants towards his child.

Orlando Bloom’s morning routine has been revealed, and it has left users of social media absolutely baffled.

The Hollywood star was interviewed by The Sunday Times, and shared intricate details of his entire morning routine.

Bloom, 44, who became a household name after starring as Legolas in Lord of the Rings, wakes up at 6.30am.

He said: “The first thing I do is look at the app to see if I’ve had a good sleep and check my readiness for the day.”

Nothing too out of the ordinary, there.

He then checks on his daughter, Daisy, singing to her while allowing his fiancée Katy Perry a lie-in.

“I’m a Capricorn, so I crave routine,” he said.

He follows this by belting out 20 minutes of intense Buddhist chanting directed at his child.

Bloom said: “I chant for 20 minutes every day, religiously.

“I’ve had a Buddhist practice since I was 16, so that’s infiltrated my whole being. I’ll read a bit of Buddhism and then I’ll type it up and add it to my [Instagram] Stories.”

Bloom’s diet is arguably the weirdest aspect of his morning routine.

“I’ll just have some green powders that I mix with brain octane oil, a collagen powder for my hair and nails, and some protein. It’s all quite LA, really.”

He said he likes “to earn” his breakfast, which he has after hiking to the music of Nirvana and Stone Temple Pilots.

When he returns home, he consumes “a little hazelnut milk, cinnamon, vanilla paste, hazelnuts, goji berries and vegan protein powder” alongside a mug of PG Tips tea.

Bloom is 90% plant-based, but enjoys eating “a really good piece” of red meat once per month.

On the topic of red meat, Bloom said “I sometimes look at a cow and think, that’s the most beautiful thing ever.

“At some point in time we’ll look back and not be able to believe we used to eat meat.”

A scoop of brain octane oil isn’t exactly a typical breakfast option, so naturally people were left puzzled.

“Read this earlier, surely he’s on a wind-up?” wrote one Twitter user.

Another asked: “The man is on another planet. Who would choose PG Tips over Yorkshire Tea?”

Some likened it to an excerpt from American Psycho.
