This is what I found on PEOPLE.COM:

Orlando Bloom is opening up about his past decision to turn down an appearance on Saturday Night Live.

In an interview on The Howard Stern Show last week, the Carnival Row actor, 42, explained that he opted not to host the NBC comedy sketch series because he felt “really insecure at the time,” citing his dyslexia and the pressure of the international fame he earned from the Pirates of the Caribbean and The Lord of the Rings films.

“I was just like, partly my dyslexia, partly like that window of time where I couldn’t even … think straight and see the wood through the trees,” he explained to host Howard Stern.

“You’ve got to read and then also … I didn’t have perspective,” Bloom said, adding that the offer to appear came during the time of the third Pirates of the Caribbean film, which was released in 2007.

“I was in a burning car and I just didn’t know how to get out and I couldn’t do Saturday Night Live,” he said.

Bloom said that if SNL were to call him today, he would do the show “in a heartbeat.”
