Orlando Bloom has vowed never to put himself in danger for the sake of a movie, after he nearly died falling from an upstairs terrace in 1998. The actor feared he would never walk again after breaking his back toppling from a friend's three-storey house, and he has made sure safety came first while filming the latest Pirates Of The Caribbean film. He says, "I was fearless up until I broke my back, and it's not like that disappears, but you suddenly realise that it's your body you're messing with and you have to be careful. "I was very close to never standing again. I was close to dying, but the prospect of not being able to walk out of hospital would terrify anyone into having a new respect for themselves and give them a new lease of life. "A movie set is a controlled environment. I'm not putting myself in danger and if think that I am in danger, then I speak to the stunt coordinators and tell them it doesn't feel right." Bloom is the first to admits he's accident-prone. He once admitted, "I've broken my back, my ribs, my nose, both my legs, my arm, my wrist, a finger and a toe and cracked my skull three times."
