New York (ANI): British actor Orlando Bloom has opened up about his previously undisclosed battle with dyslexia. During a talk at the Child Mind Institute with Dr. Harold Koplewicz, the Lord of the Rings star talked about his ongoing struggle.

"It's still an ongoing struggle," the New York Daily News quoted him as saying. "I have more trouble studying scripts and memorizing lines than most [other actors]," he added.

However, the actor also admitted to a packed audience at Rockefeller University, which included his lady love, Miranda Kerr, that his mother used to help him overcome his problem. "My mom used to tell me, If you read 50 books, I'll get you a motorbike," he said.

"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.
