Do you remember when Orlando Bloom almost broke the internet by going paddle boarding in his birthday suit?

Now, five years later, the actor has hit the water again in an equally revealing manner – but this time, he kept some private areas covered up himself.

Bloom shared four pictures on Instagram as he went for what appeared to be a naked dip. In one of the pictures, he can be spotted standing up overlooking the water as his back is turned to the camera. A peach emoji covers his behind.

The post also includes a quick video, which shows him – and his backstroke abilities – in the water.

Check it out below:

The pictures reminded many people of photos of Bloom taken in 2016, which showed the Pirates of the Caribbean star completely naked as he went naked paddle boarding with then-girlfriend (now fiancee) Katy Perry while on holiday in Italy .

Naturally, his boat rowing skills weren’t the topic of discussion and the photo soon went viral.

“Not again,” someone wrote.

“Here we go again,” another added.

A third said:” You leaked your nudes this time.”

Someone else just took it straight to jokes and wrote: “Nice swimsuit.”

After the 2016 incident, Bloom spoke with Howard Stern’s radio show and downplayed his apparent assets.

“Things are expanded on cameras with a big optical lens. It is an optical illusion,” Bloom said.

He also delved into the photos, noting that his publicist reached out to him to reassure him that it wasn’t the worst and some pictures had “a block over it.”

Good for you, Orlando. Taking back control.
