Orlando BloomORLANDO Bloom has revealed he’s dyslexic.

Speaking at the Child Mind Institute in NYC Wednesday, the Pirates of the Caribbean star called it “an ongoing struggle,” according to the New York Daily News.

“I have more trouble studying scripts and memorizing lines than most [other actors].”

The 33-year-old British actor said his mother inspired him to confront his learning difficulties.

“My mom used to tell me, ‘If you read 50 books, I’ll get you a motorbike,’” he laughed.

“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!”
