"And I think that gave me a real kick as a kid and a lot of fight and a lot of drive later on, like when I broke my back," he added.

The 30-year-old star also said that his efforts have paid off.

"And now, whenever I prepare for a meeting I am always over prepared. So for the Lord Of The Rings audition, for example, I really prepared it thoroughly. In one sense, I guess that I'm grateful; it gave me that drive, and so far it's paid off," said Bloom.
