Orlando Bloom struggled with dyslexia

New York: Hollywood actor Orlando Bloom has admitted that he struggled with dyslexia.

The actor made his battle with dyslexia public at an event at the Child Mind Institute, Rockefeller University. His girlfriend Miranda Kerr was also present among the audience.

"It`s still an ongoing struggle. I have more trouble studying scripts and memorising lines than most (other actors)," New York Daily News quoted Bloom as saying.

"My mom used to tell me, `If you read 50 books, I`ll get you a motorbike.` So it inspired me to read a lot and work through (my dyslexia). But I never quite got to 50. And I never got that motorbike," he added.
