Bloom and Bosworth Dine, Leave Dog in Car

7/17/2006 12:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Orlando and Kate to be hitched?Orlando Bloom had a great weekend, with his "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie making another 62 million at the box office, but that doesn't mean his dog can come into the restaurant.

Bloom and Kate Bosworth were spotted going out for a late afternoon lunch (they had scallops) and - just like the rest of us - Orlando had to leave his beautiful black dog in the car.

We all know how dangerous a hot car can be for an animal- the risk of death is quite real. But Orlando took care of his best friend, making sure the window was cracked and getting up twice during the meal, possibly to go check on the pooch.

When he and Kate came out of the restaurant, the car had been moved to a shady spot. It is unclear if Orlando requested this or if the valet took the initiative. Either way, Orlando gave the guy what looks like a substantial tip.

And Orlando's right - it's worth a few bucks to ensure your pet's safety.

As much as I once lusted after the man, this is a big turn-off. NEVER leave an animal or child in an unattended vehicle. Windows down? In the shade? Not enough! A big tip before the meal and I'll bet a valet might have been convinced to hold the leash for an hour. Money can't buy common sense or compassion.

If you see an animal locked in a car, call the police. I've dialed 911 several times for this, with varying results. A couple of times the cops went into the building and made an announcement and gave the owners either a verbal or written warning. Once, when the owner couldn't be located, a deputy took a "slim jim" to the car and let the dog out until the owner came out and then wrote a ticket for animal cruelty. On one other occasion, the officer called animal control after forcing the door and left a note for the owner to pick up their dogs at the pound, after paying a fine for each.

Speak up people, it feels good to do the right thing - you'll get over any embarrassment quicker than you will the guilt for not doing anything.

I think the public should stop paying so much damn attention to actors. They are all human beings- some are extremely bright and talented- others serve as excellent ambassadors for our country and provide millions for charity. Regardless of whether or not they star in ridiculous re-make movies while bombing a pop-star career, or they have committed to the completion of exquisite films- they have their own lives at a home somewhere- believe it or not. It is NOT up to us to mock, judge, or spy on them. We choose to abandon reality and immerse ourselves in their wonderful artform- we already expose every ounce of expression they may show in the theatres- why strip them of their dignity and personal freedom? I am an actor, and believe it or not- there exists a REAL LIFE outside of the prop room and behind the camera operator. Granted, some "stars" like Paris Hilton and all those other awful, disreputable, and overall disgusting role models strive to gain public attention by acting juvenile and shallow. However, the true actor- the one that enjoys the art itself and simply wants to revel in a life of happiness, despises the critical eye of the masses. We want to share a gift that we have- must we share every facet of our lives as well? We ALL have flaws in our character and past acts that may blacken our name...SO WHAT!!! It is human to be this way....and seeing how you've all picked apart the flaws and mishaps of actors- that SHOULD PROVE that they ARE human too. Let's all grab a hobby and life of our own, shall we? There should be a lawsuit protecting actors from this demeaning treatment. In fact, there will be someday soon if there isn't an action in place already...I will see to it.

Why not leave the dog at home? It would be more safe there. Even with the car in the shade and the window "cracked" that's still totally unsafe.

"It's worth a few bucks to ensure your pet's safety." Get real!!! It was HOT in L.A. over the weekend and no dog should've been left in the car, PERIOD. It would have been worth B&B taking the dog home before they noshed on scallops.

As a fan, I know the dog has serious anxiety disorders...he adopted him from Morocco out of a box of sh*t and takes him with him everywhere. It's like asking him to leave his kid at home as he's referred to him endless times as "his baby". It's either that or have him ransack his house and keep him outside anyway. He cracked the window and put him in the shade, so I don't see what different it makes.

as the owner of a dog with separation anxiety who has broken out of crates by bending the bars, and trashes the house if left home alone, I can relate to not wanting to leave the dog home alone. Still, ya shouldn't leave the pooch in the car. Hopefully, the valet earned his tip by letting the dog out of the car and watching him for a while. Sheesh, can't either one of them cook? Scallops? That girl needs to eat some pasta!

Even if the dog has serious anxiety issues would you leave a baby in the car whether it was parked in the shade? There is absolutely no excuse for leaving the dog in the car on a hot day in the shade or out of the shade. That is just plain irresponsability. You do not leave a dog cat or whatever in a car with no a/c on for any length of time. A car's interior can reach well over 120 degrees on a hot day

Beanpole and Lollipop need to eat a lot more than scallops and leave the dog at home.

I never understand why people do this. Why don't they try to leave the dog at home then they won't have to worry if it's too hot in the car or if the dog will jump out the window. Nomatter how hot it is an animal should never be left in a car espacially for long periods like while you are eating lunch.

Uhhhh... animals DO TOO get separation anxiety? Duh? Even "lower forms" of life, like iguanas, experience things like relocation stress and act out because of it. Why the heck WOULDN'T a needy, pack animal like a dog have separation anxiety? Especially if it had been abused or neglected? They probably picked what they felt is the lesser of two evils. Not only that, AS IF the relentless, ubiquitous paparazzi would not notice if the dog was in distress. Come on... that dog had more babysitters for the hour or so it MIGHT have been in the car than an entire neighborhood of toddlers. Pfft.

I believe the only reason they moved the car etc., is because TMZ spotted them and they realized they could get penalized for leaving the dog in the car, otherwise who would have gave a sh*t. Who cares, obviously they didnt, they were more concerned over getting in trouble and having the tabloids spill on them and tear them to shreds, and what's worse, most of the people on here are doing just that. Next time, leave the pooch in a crate at home.... That's not cruel, that's air conditioning and with the kind of money they have, I'm sure the crate is quite roomy.
