Orlando Bloom has revealed he was paid just R2.5 million for the three "Lord of the Rings" films.
The 42-year-old actor shot to fame after starring as elf warrior Legolas in Peter Jackson's fantasy trilogy - based on J. R. R. Tolkien's novels - between 2001 and 2003.

He told Howard Stern on his SiriusXM Howard 100 show: "Nothing, I got nothing. $175 grand (R2.6 million).
"Listen, greatest gift of my life. Are you kidding me? "I'd do it again for half the money.
