London, June 19 (ANI): Hollywood actor Orlando Bloom’s mother is auctioning off her son’s clothes, slippers and a wet suit, in a bid to clear out his room before she moves house.
Sonia Copeland-Bloom will also be selling off costumes worn by ‘The Lords of the Ring’ star during the filming of the trilogy.
The money raised from 32-year-old star’s unwanted possessions will go to charity.
“I have spoken to Orlando who is quite happy for me to get as much as I can for charity,” the Telegraph quoted Mrs Copeland-Bloom, who lives in Kent as saying.
“There are some real collector’s items among them and they will all be authenticated by me by letter,” she added.
The collection includes a bodyline wet suit used by Orlando, when he filmed a scene with Elijah Wood in The Return of the King and a poster signed by the entire cast, a pair of Moroccan slippers and boots he wore in The Kingdom of Heaven.
Gucci shoes, Puma trainers, polo shirts and a hooded waterproof Gap jacket belonging to the star is also up for sale.
“We are inviting people to send us bids of which the top ones will be invited to see the items before submitting a further sealed bid,” said Copeland-Bloom.
The money raised will be divided between four charities, UNESCO, the New Marlow Theatre, cancer charity Odyssey and the UKC Music Scholarships. (ANI)
