Orlando Bloom 

Orlando Bloom is an English actor most famous for his role as Legolas in The Lord of the Rings and Hobbit film series, as well as Will Turner in the Pirates of the Caribbean films.

Initially he was a sporty child until he was nine years old and had an accident. He told US chat show host Ellen DeGeneres: “I broke my leg when I was about nine skiing, so I had a cast from about nine to ten [years old]. For some reason it was a year in a cast. It was at a time when I used to be really sporty and stuff, so I just started eating chocolate and I got a big tummy. I got so tubby that I remember my mum took me to a doctor and said, ‘He just can’t stop eating chocolate’. The doctor used hypnosis to break his addiction to chocolate and restore a healthy lifestyle. After the cast came off he was able to slim down. 

Aaron Eckhart 

Aaron Eckhart is an American actor best known for the role of George in the film Erin Brockovich and in Batman film The Dark Knight as District Attorney Harvey Dent / Two-Face.

He has credited hypnosis with permanently changing his life style after he used it to give up smoking, drinking and partying. He told the Guardian, in 2007, “’Well, I’ve changed my life for sure, there’s no doubt about it. I’ve quit drinking. I’ve quit smoking. And I don’t think I was the best person when I was drinking. I never thought I could give up smoking… Now I have a cup of coffee in the mornings I feel better, cleaner, and I think I’m a friendlier person. Drinking was a way to cover up some insecurities and I figured I didn’t need it any more. I didn’t use the hypnosis as therapy. It was pretty cut and dried. But I wouldn’t be afraid to do that if I needed to clear something up”.

He said, “I actually got hypnotised.  I had to go and see a Hypnotherapist to get hypnotised to stop drinking diet coke”. He went on to explain the process and said, “You sit in a chair. People think it this weird kind of… like [they] zap you… But it’s just sitting there, relaxed, start thinking about your thoughts. Then once you’re under he just suggests what you’re… You know he just puts suggestions about not… what not to do”.

He went on to explain that after just one session he had completely overcome his addiction to caffeine and that he has no cravings. In the same show Liza Tarbuck (English actress, comedian, and television and radio presenter) also talks about using hypnotherapy to stop smoking.
